|20140028267||BATTERY CHARGING METHOD AND BATTERY PACK UTILIZING THE SAME - A method of charging a battery and a battery pack utilizing the same, is disclosed. The method enhances the battery life characteristic of a battery cell by varying the charging parameters (e.g., charging voltage, charging current, rate of charge, relative state of charge, and battery capacity) based a temperature of or around the battery cell is in a normal, extended, or abnormal temperature range when the battery cell is fully charged. The charging method includes determining whether a battery cell is being charged, and if the battery cell is being charged, determining whether the battery cell is fully charged; if the battery cell is fully charged, determining whether a temperature of or around the battery cell is in a normal range or in an extended range; and if the temperature is in the normal range, selecting a first charging parameter set, and if the temperature is in the extended range, selecting a charging condition of the battery cell as a second set value.||01-30-2014|
|20130252047||BATTERY MODULE - A battery module including a plurality of unit cells, a plurality of bus bars electrically connecting the plurality of unit cells, a positive electrode terminal and a negative electrode terminal that are electrically connected and in contact with two ends of the plurality of unit cells, a battery housing accommodating the plurality of unit cells and the bus bars, and detection terminals that are respectively electrically connected to the plurality of bus bars, wherein the detection terminals are exposed outside the battery housing. Accordingly, voltage balancing between the unit cells may be controlled without disassembling the battery module.||09-26-2013|
|20130236772||SECONDARY BATTERY - A secondary battery includes an electrode assembly including a first electrode plate, a second electrode plate and a separator interposed therebetween; and a battery case in which the electrode assembly is accommodated. The first electrode plate is composed of a first coated portion having a first active material coated on a first substrate and a first non-coated portion. The second electrode plate is composed of a second coated portion having a second active material coated on a second substrate and a second non-coated portion. In the secondary battery, the section of a boundary portion between the first or second coated portion and the first or second non-coated portion is inclined.||09-12-2013|
|20130038294||BATTERY PACK - A battery pack is constructed with a rechargeable battery, a protection circuit part that protects the battery when the battery is charged and discharged, and a switching unit that turns on or off a power source of the protection circuit part. Also, the battery pack may be constructed with a rechargeable battery, a protection circuit part that protects the battery when the battery is charged and discharged, and electric wiring lines constructed so that the power source of the protection circuit part may be turned on and off. When the battery pack is not connected to a charger or a load by the switching unit or the electric wire lines, the power source of the circuit is blocked to prevent the battery pack from being shorted and to reduce the idle power. When the battery pack is connected to the charger or the load, the power source is applied to the circuit so that the circuit operates.||02-14-2013|
|20120321924||ELECTRODE ASSEMBLY AND SECONDARY BATTERY HAVING THE SAME - A secondary battery includes a jelly roll including a positive and negative electrode plates respectively having positive and negative electrode non-coating portions and at least one separator; positive and negative electrode terminals each having a contact portion, an electrode terminal and an extending portion; elastic members respectively provided between the positive and negative electrode non-coating portions and the contact portions; an outer case that accommodates the jelly roll and the terminal portions in the state that the outer case is connected to the negative electrode terminal portion; a cap plate that seals the outer case; a support portion that supports and insulates the contact portion of each of the terminal portions respectively provided at both ends of the jelly roll; and a positive lead provided in the state that the positive electrode lead is insulated from the cap plate, and electrically connected to the positive electrode terminal portion.||12-20-2012|
