It is now possible to realize energy harvesting IoT equipment utilizing a minuscule amount of environmental power generation (e.g., light, vibrations and flow rate). This is done by using an embedded controller that utilizes the RE Family and Nichicon small Li-ion rechargeable battery.


  • SLB series of small Li-ion rechargeable batteries achieve both high power density and high energy density
  • Rapid charge/discharge: High input/output density approaching electric double-layer capacitors
  • Long life: Maintain a capacity of at least 80% after 25,000 charging/discharging cycles
  • Safety: Extremely low possibility of explosion or ignition even when used under harsh conditions
  • Low temperatures: Possible to use in cold regions (-30 °C)


  • Smart home
  • Smart factories
  • Smart agriculture
  • Disaster detection
  • Fixed point observation
  • Condition monitoring
