    Sony Corp has brought the world good tidings. The company has announced the shipping of its lithium-ion (Li-ion) rechargeable battery module using lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) as a positive-electrode material by April this year. The modules costing around ¥300,000 (approx US$3,639) per kilowatt hour boast a 1.2kWh capacity and will work best as back-up power supply systems for data servers and mobile network base stations and at the same time, serve as home back-up systems too. To be manufactured at the Tochigi Office of Sony Energy Devices Corp (Shimotsuke City, Tochigi Prefecture), these modules will add a greener edge to home-energy-management systems.

    The modules can be connected in series or arranged in a parallel array, for the required voltage and capacity too!
