The newly launched VINATech LIC product range offers a series of radial EDLC capacitors from 20 Farad to 270 Farads. This hybrid ultra-capacitor technology uses activated carbon with a lithium electrode to create a high density capacitor with extremely low self discharge characteristics.

The VINATech  LIC range offers 3-4 times energy density when compared to existing established EDLCs and the VINATech 3V series.

The LIC series also offers extremely low leakage current, making them suitable for regenerative IoT technologies such as wireless sensing, RFiD tagging and a host of rechargeable products such as offender tagging, asset tracking, medical appliances, SMART buildings and lighting by supporting pulse management in communications products such as water and gas data loggers which use battery power as prime power source.

Temperature ranges of the LIC are from -30°C to +70°C (or 85°C when de-rated to 3.5V) With a cycle life exceeding 100,000 full cycles the LIC offers much longer life than similar battery based pulse products which can only manage +1,000.

Product size ranges from 10x30mm to the largest being 25x40mm. In the pipeline is a smaller 10Farad device.

Despite the lithium in the name this LIC product meets with RoHS, WEEE & REACH regulations and does not have any limitation for International Transportation.

The LIC series is now available through the official VINATech distributors and online partners.

VINATech’s main ISO-14001 EDLC production centre in Jeon-ju City , South Korea and is also ISO-TS16949 automotive accredited.
