Batteries

TAKE TWO DIFFERENT METALS, PLACE AN ION TRANSPORTING MEDIUM
BETWEEN THEM, WIRE THEM UP TO BE CONNECTED OUTSIDE THE
ELECTROLYTE SOLUTION (PERHAPS TO A VOLTMETER OR
POTENTIOSTAT) AND YOU’VE MADE A BATTERY.
WITH THE EVER-INCREASING DEMAND FOR PORTABLE POWER,
BATTERIES ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE IMPORTANT. AS
DEMANDS ON BATTERY PERFORMANCE INCREASE, SO DO DEMANDS
ON THE SYSTEMS DESIGNED TO TEST THEM. GAMRY ACCEPTS THE
CHALLENGE AND IS EQUIPPED TODAY TO TEST THE POWER SYSTEMS
OF TOMORROW.

Batteries
Electrochemistry has come a long way from
potentiometric measurements, and battery
technologies have developed quite rapidly,
particularly in the last couple decades. What
remains constant is that batteries are—
materials science not withstanding—pure
electrochemical devices. Electrochemical
studies and potentiostats are critical to battery
research.
Battery engineers are tasked with producing
higher energy densities at lower prices, while
focusing on safety concerns. Furthermore,
secondary (rechargeable) batteries add
additional cycle-life requirements and testing.

Gamry’s Interface & Reference
Potentiostats can be operated using
PWR800 Electrochemical Energy
Software – together with EIS300
Electrochemical Impedance
Spectroscopy to cover the complete
electrochemical needs of battery
researchers.

Gamry has several electrochemical cells that are
good for various battery tests including our new
Lithium Battery Materials Cell Kit
The Lithium
Battery
Electrochemical
Cell Kit has been
designed for
electrochemical
testing of lithium
battery materials.

The electrodes
and holders
are designed
to hold foils
and electrode
materials in
different
configurations.

Lithium Batter y Cell

The cell was designed to
provide an air-tight seal
using the specially tapered
Teflon® joints. The main
purpose of this was to allow
for cell assembly inside a
glovebox followed by
removal for electrochemical
testing outside the glovebox.

Gamry’s Applications Notes include several relevant to
battery users. We also have electrochemistry specialists
available via email or on the phone. Our sales and
support staff consists of electrochemists and engineers
with real-world research experience that understand

battery testing and can get you pointed in the right
direction. Give us a call at 1-877-367-4267.

Gamry potentiostats are all
4-probe instruments.
