1 kw Battery
A high-capacity portable storage battery. Development began because of the demand for electric power in the aftermath of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. Various solutions were devised to enable the transport of big, heavy objects by one person alone, in order to deliver large capacities of electricity to remote locations. Taking advantage of its high capacity storage, it can serve to shift electric consumption to off-peak periods and reduce electricity rates by keeping the battery available in residences or shops during regular times, and protect people’s lifelines as emergency power supply during unforeseen disasters.
