Nanxin Semiconductor makes a strong entry into the portable energy storage market

【Introduction】Portable energy storage power supply, also known as outdoor power supply, is a small energy storage device with built-in lithium-ion battery, which can provide a power supply system with stable AC/DC Voltage output, with large capacity, high power, safe and portable, etc. Features, its battery capacity is generally 100Wh-2000Wh, equipped with AC input, DC input, AC output, USB / Type-C output and other interfaces, suitable for outdoor travel, outdoor operations, emergency rescue, medical rescue and other scenarios .

In the past, small fuel-fired generators were mainly used for power supply outdoors and in emergency situations, but fuel-fired generators were bulky, operating load, noisy, and polluted the environment by exhaust gas. Therefore, the portable energy storage industry based on lithium battery technology has gradually emerged.

With the popularization of mobile smart terminals such as mobile phones and notebook computers, outdoor life close to nature has also become a trend, and the demand for outdoor electricity is increasing. Power has gradually become an important spare in family life. We can predict that in the post-epidemic era, outdoor activities will rebound in popularity, and outdoor power demand will increase explosively. At the same time, driven by the development of new energy vehicles, the upstream lithium-ion battery industry has matured, and the portable energy storage industry has developed rapidly.

Portable energy storage power sources first emerged in Europe and the United States. In recent years, domestic demand has continued to rise. In line with the national policy route of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, it is bound to inject new development vitality into the mobile energy storage market.

The system architecture of the portable energy storage power supply is similar to our common power bank, but with larger input and output power, more functions, and higher requirements for safety and reliability. The following figure shows the internal functional architecture of the portable energy storage system, of which the green part is the chip solution that Nanxin semiconductor can provide.
