Odyne Corp. Awarded Patent for Battery Enclosure
Odyne Corporation (OTCBB:ODYC), a clean technology company that develops advanced hybrid electric vehicle propulsion systems, announced today that it has been awarded a patent for an air-cooled battery enclosure designed to improve the function and extend the lifespan of battery packages for mobile applications. The company was awarded U.S. Patent #11/322024
"Battery enclosures have been designed for manufacturing ease and not for optimal long term battery operation," explains Joe Ambrosio, founder and CTO of Odyne. "They have been sealed on all sides and have not allowed for the passage of air. The contained heat degrades the battery, resulting in premature failure."
