Consumer Electronics

Gap Identification


Always ‐on GPS, 4G-wifi connectivity with high content consumption, long calls and regular fitness routines strains average battery of smartphones, wireless accessories, bluetooth enabled equipments and wearables. Post COVID pandemic, technology enabled work from home, in-house fitness routines, and expected 5G advent further add on to the faster depleting batteries of these devices. This increases the frequency of charging the devices.

The Out-Of-Home (OOH) AC charging sockets at restaurants, cafes, airports etc. are publicly shared and are subjected to limited availability. The DC charging sockets made available in transit flights, cabs and cars are capped at 9 V max. Both scenarios mandate facilitating fast charging given the caveats of accessibility, availability and average time spent in charging at the sockets.

Tech advancement in quick charging standards1 of (QC 4+/ QC 5.0) is limited in application to smartphones. Further, this offering is restricted to the premium flagship smartphones depending on a special facilitation of – 3A cable, dual cell configuration, 100+ W charger and flagship chipset (snapdragon 865+) with PD-PPS protocol. Devices apart from smartphones are bereft of this fast charging revolution.

The Need – Requirement for ‘ultra-fast recharging’ technology that can be used in smartphones, accessories viz. power banks, bluetooth enabled audio devices, laptops-tablets, personal care electronics, home automation and smart tech wearables that need to be portable and independent of bulkier higher mAh batteries.




Use case


Achieving fast charging from earlier 5W chargers to existing 18W and upcoming 20W (9V x 2.22A) iPhone chargers is a result of adopting the USB C powered PD charging technology with compatible lightning fast charging cable.

Alongside, the 20% increase in the battery capacity in the iPhone Pro Max (3969 mAh) from XS Max (3174 mAh)3 is in order to accommodate the increased wattage (18W+) which in turn is a factor of increased Voltage.

The PD convention not only facilitates fast charging to competition’s smartphones and devices4, but also mandates the increase in battery capacity of the devices that provide fast charging through higher wattages.

Implication: This affects the form factor and the weight of the devices thus impacting the user experience.




Solution


AtomsAlive’s ultra-fast charging technology is independent of the increase in the voltage and does not mandate the increase in the battery capacity. Until the trickle charge has set in, the battery has charged to 80% of its capacity in just 20-25 minutes as against the 50% charge capacity reached in 30 minutes in iPhone 11.

Implication: The wattage combination enhances the user experience in the above use case by increasing the ‘charging performance’ ratio (input charging time to output active time). This is because the charging time to achieve 100% charging is reduced by 70-75% than the conventional 18W Power delivery solution.





 

Electrical Vehicles

Gap Identification


Traction in the adoption of electric vehicles is on the cusp of acceptance in India. While the lawmakers strive for providing regulations and subsidies, the automakers aim at providing best in class EVs grappling with the industry pain points of – fast charging and heat management. The race for providing longer kilometer range per charge has its trade-offs with the longer time taken to fully charge the EV battery.

Higher Ah battery packs correspond to longer battery recharging hours hampering user experience of the customers that are pre-conditioned to refuelling the 100% of the CV fuel tanks in just few minutes. Further higher wattage charger of EVs are bulky and affects the form factor influencing the portability.

Identified need gap – Requirement for fast charging solution to the EVs that is portable and independent of bulkier battery and chargers.




Use case


2W tolerable downtown < 60 minutes for application specific commercial (delivery agents) & private owners. Industry pain points: 1) Takes high time to charge (downtime) is 3.5 - 5 hours for 80-100% charge.
2) Limited range of 110-120 km on a single charge
3) Lack of Ultra-fast charging Docking Station
4) Risk of high heat dissipation while charging




Solution


With in-house core competency of focused R&D on innovative technology, Market Research insights shaping into product adaptations and Product Development expertise, AtomsAlive bridges the need gap with ‘ultra-fast charging solution that reduces the recharging time to 70-75%’ by extending this application from the consumer electronics to electric vehicles segment.

Further, our technology solution is also shaping in the form of a minimum viable product for EV charging - docking stations with requirements of 6.7kW across battery packs upto 19.6Ah capacity. We focus on solving the industry pain point of battery thermal management system while achieving fast charging.

AtomsAlive solution: 1) 35-40% reduce in the charging time + optimization as per custom configurations
2) Optimum life cycles for longer km range & longevity
3) Ultra fast charging Docking Station + swappable battery system for pit stops < 15 minutes
4) Power electronics – BMS led heat management
