SigFx LLC has launched the SaFPWR energy management system that extracts more power from a lithium polymer battery, prolongs the battery cell life and improves safety.

The SaFPWR monitors and collects data on the internal and external environments of the battery and their interrelationship. The system also collects data on the use of the device it is serving to maximize the operating efficiency and safety of the device. SaFPWR uses this data to more than double the runtime of the device it serves and virtually eliminate the safety issues present in today's battery market.

Jimmy Rogers, co-founder of SigFx, believes that SaFPWR "is an answer to the markets' need for powering electronic devices, as it provides the increased runtime the consumer demands and the safety the manufacturers need."

Currently, SaFPWR is available for the Apple iPhone, iPod touch and iPod classic in a rechargeable leather case in several styles. SaFPWR is also available in an external and primary extended runtime battery pack for laptop computers.
