This year’s Consumers Electronics Show (CES) just wrapped up in Las Vegas. The show was Vegas-style fabulous and featured many amazing products, ranging from next-generation electronics to EVs. Southern California-based solid battery maker Yoshino also came to display the world’s first solid-state batteries.
Solid-state batteries are far more durable, powerful, lighter and charge faster than lithium-ion batteries. More than four decades ago, Dr. Akira Yoshino developed the first lithium-ion battery technology. Yoshino has launched four models (B330, B660, B2000, and B4000), which can be used to power things like handsets, EVs, and even homes. The company first displayed the solid-state batteries in November at AAPEX 2022 show, and at the CES they were ETL certified, a product compliance standard for North American safety requirements.
