  • Patent number: 11063318
    Abstract: A cylindrical battery cell includes a jelly-roll type electrode assembly, configured to have a structure in which a positive electrode and a negative electrode are wound in a state in which a separator is disposed between the positive electrode and the negative electrode; a cylindrical battery case having no beading part; a cap assembly located at the open upper end of the cylindrical battery case, the cap assembly including a safety vent configured to rupture in order to exhaust gas when pressure in the battery case increases; a gasket mounted so as to surround the outer circumference of the safety vent in order to maintain insulation between the cap assembly and the cylindrical battery case; and a washer for fixing the cap assembly to the cylindrical battery case, the washer coupled to an upper surface of an outer circumferential portion of the open upper end of the cylindrical battery case.

  • Publication number: 20200295318
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a secondary battery, in which a sealing property is improved, and a method for manufacturing the same. The secondary battery includes: a can member having an opening; a top cap assembly sealing the opening; a gasket insulating the opening from the top cap assembly; and a hot melt applied to a surface of the gasket, wherein the hot melt has fluidity and viscosity at a predetermined temperature or more and is hardened at a temperature less than the predetermined temperature.

  • Publication number: 20200091482
    Abstract: The disclosed secondary battery is capable of preventing a short-circuit pressure at which the safety vent is ruptured from being reduced due to deformation of the safety vent during assembly of the battery. The secondary battery of the present invention includes a can member accommodating an electrode assembly and a top cap assembly covering an opening of the can member. A safety vent is provided in the top cap assembly to discharge a gas when an inner pressure of the can member increases, wherein the safety vent includes a main body and a bending unit, in which an outer edge of the main body is bent, and wherein a buffering space is defined between the bending unit and the main body.

  • Patent number: 10535859
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a pouch-shaped secondary battery including a micro-perforated electrode lead having adhesive properties that is capable of enabling a short circuit to occur in the pouch-shaped secondary battery using the adhesive properties of the micro-perforated electrode lead with respect to a pouch-shaped battery case in order to secure the safety of the pouch-shaped secondary battery when the pouch-shaped secondary battery swells due to gas generated in the pouch-shaped secondary battery while the pouch-shaped secondary battery is in an abnormal state or when the pouch-shaped secondary battery is overcharged. Current is prevented from flowing in the pouch-shaped secondary battery when the pouch-shaped secondary battery is overcharged or when the pouch-shaped secondary battery is in an abnormal state.
