Samsung SDI : Patent Application Titled "Battery Pack" Published Online

01/29/2015 | 12:47am US/Eastern

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- According to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews journalists, a patent application by the inventors Ahn, Byung-Kook (Yongin-si, KR); Moon, Dae-Yon (Yongin-si, KR), filed on November 11, 2013, was made available online on January 22, 2015.

The assignee for this patent application is Samsung Sdi Co., Ltd.

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to a battery pack.

"With the development of wireless Internet or communication technology, use of portable computers, which may be operated by using a battery without a power supply device, has rapidly increased. In general, portable computers are widely used for work or personal purposes because of their compact designs, ease of portability, and high mobility. A portable computer may include an internal battery pack which allows extended use of the device in various places without being affected by a power supply device. The internal battery pack in these devices may include unit batteries that may be repeatedly discharged and recharged."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "One or more embodiments of the present invention relate to a battery pack, and in particular, to a structure of a battery pack.

"According to an aspect of the present invention, there is provided a battery pack including a plurality of unit batteries arranged side by side in a first direction, each unit battery including a can having an opening, the can accommodating an electrode assembly having a first electrode plate, a second electrode plate, and a separator located between the first electrode plate and the second electrode plate, and a cap plate sealing the opening, wherein the plurality of unit batteries are arranged side by side in the first direction such that the cap plate of each of the unit batteries is exposed in the same direction. The battery unit may further include a protection circuit module adjacent to the cap plate of each of the unit batteries, the protection circuit module having a circuit board extending in the first direction and a protection device coupled to the circuit board, wherein each unit battery of the plurality of unit batteries further includes a first terminal on a first area of the cap plate and coupled to the unit battery and the protection circuit module; and a second terminal on a second area of the cap plate and coupled to the unit battery and the protection circuit module.

"The circuit board of the battery pack may include at least one terminal hole, wherein an end portion of at least one of the first terminal or the second terminal is coupled to the terminal hole.

"At least one of the first terminal or the second terminal of the battery pack may include a first surface parallel to the cap plate, a second surface bent away from the first surface in a direction substantially perpendicular to the first surface, and a third surface bent away from the second surface in a direction substantially perpendicular to the second surface and substantially parallel to the first surface.

"The second surface of the first terminal or the second terminal of the battery pack may be adjacent to a first long side of the cap plate, and the circuit board may be on a plane adjacent to the second surface.

"A height of the protection device of the battery pack may be equal to or less than a distance between the first long side of the cap plate and a second long side of the cap plate parallel and opposite to the first long side.

"The circuit board of the battery pack may include at least one terminal hole, wherein the third surface is coupled to the terminal hole electrically connecting the at least one of the first terminal or the second terminal to the circuit board.

"Each of the unit batteries of the battery pack may further include an electrode pin having a first polarity and located on the cap plate, wherein the cap plate has a second polarity that is different from the first polarity.

"The first terminal of the battery pack may electrically couple the electrode pin and the protection circuit module, and the second terminal of the battery pack may electrically couple the cap plate and the protection circuit module.

"The battery pack may further include a holder located between the first terminal and the cap plate, the holder insulating the cap plate from the first terminal while exposing the electrode pin.

"The first terminal of the battery pack may further include a temperature cutoff.

"Facing surfaces of adjacent unit batteries from among the plurality of unit batteries of the battery pack may be insulated from each other.

"According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a battery pack including a plurality of unit batteries, each of the unit batteries including a can having an opening and including a metal material, an electrode assembly located inside the can and including a first electrode plate, a second electrode plate, and a separator between the first electrode plate and the second electrode plate, and a cap plate sealing the opening of the can; and a protection circuit module adjacent to the cap plate of each of the plurality of unit batteries, the protection circuit module including a circuit board and a protection device, wherein each unit battery of the plurality of unit batteries further includes a first terminal electrically coupling the protection circuit module and an electrode pin having a first polarity and located on the cap plate; and a second terminal electrically coupling the protective circuit module and the cap plate, the cap plate having a second polarity that is opposite to the first polarity.

"The circuit board of the battery pack may include at least one terminal hole.

"A portion of the first terminal and a portion of the second terminal of the battery pack may be coupled to the terminal hole.

"The battery pack may further include a holder located between the first terminal and the cap plate, the holder insulating the cap plate from the first terminal while exposing the electrode pin.

"The first terminal of the battery pack may include a first surface coupled to the electrode pin; a second surface bent away from the first surface; and a third surface bent away from the second surface and substantially parallel to the first surface.

"The first surface of the first terminal of the battery pack may include a first portion and a second portion, wherein the first portion and the second portion are electrically coupled to each other through a temperature cutoff located between the first portion and the second portion.

"The second terminal of the battery pack may include a first surface coupled to the cap plate, a second surface bent away from the first surface, and a third surface bent away from the second surface and substantially parallel to the first surface.

"The battery pack may further include a connection on the cap plate, the connection piece directly coupled to the second terminal and including the same material as a material of the second terminal.

"Facing surfaces of adjacent unit batteries from among the plurality of unit batteries of the battery pack may be insulated from each other.
