Strategic Elements (SOR) is charging ahead with the development of its moisture powered self-charging battery.

The ASX-lister is creating a battery cell that can create electricity from humidity found in the air or on the surface of skin to target the global battery market for internet of things (IoT) devices.

The battery technology is a liquid ink based on graphene oxide, which allows extremely small, thin and lightweight battery cells to be printed onto surfaces such as glass and plastic.

Recently, Strategic Elements has seen engineering success in towards powering Bluetooth communications and as well as producing a prototype battery pack that can generate over a milliamp of electrical current.

Bluetooth low-energy communications allow wearable and IoT devices to send data to other devices.

However, the most significant milestone is the battery pack. The company’s goal is to print a prototype battery pack that can produce over a milliamp of electrical current solely from moisture.

Achieving milliamp range is recognised as a significant achievement in battery technology as it expands the range of devices a battery can potentially power. According to SOR, this milestone is set to be achieved for the third quarter of 2021.

“We have experienced substantial improvement in Battery Ink power output over the past few months. Bringing forward the milliamp demonstration milestone is a highly ambitious goal that will establish the Battery Ink as a leading printable battery technology if it can be achieved,” Managing Director Charles Murphy said.

“Just as important in the near term is developing an ink that is able to be screen printed as this would open new avenues to potentially scaling the technology rapidly and significantly,” he added.

On the market this morning, Strategic Elements is up 7.14 per cent and is trading at 30 cents per share at 10:13 pm AEST.
