  • Patent number: 10381631
    Abstract: A sealed-type battery includes an exterior body, a collector terminal, a hollow rivet defining a hollow section, and a reverse plate arranged between the collector terminal and the hollow rivet. The collector terminal includes: a projected section projected; a peripheral edge section provided; and a notch section provided in the peripheral edge section in a manner to surround the projected section and formed in a manner to reduce thickness of the collector terminal. In a projected direction of the projected section, the projected section is thicker than the peripheral edge section. A fitting section, to which the projected section is fitted, is provided in the reverse plate. The sealed-type battery includes a welded section that has a top surface opposing the hollow rivet and that joins the collector terminal and the reverse plate at a position between the projected section and the fitting section.

  • Patent number: 9508963
    Abstract: A battery houses an electrode body inside a battery case including a bottomed cylindrical case body having an opening part, and a plate-like lid member inserted in the opening part so as to seal the opening. The opening part and a lid peripheral edge part are welded hermetically by an energy beam irradiated from outside in the thickness direction of the lid member. In a specific section, the inner peripheral surface of the opening part and the peripheral edge surface of the lid peripheral edge part are welded in close contact with each other. A bead at the specific section takes a fan shape having a central angle of 160 to 200 degrees in a cross section, and the center of the fan shape is positioned on the inner peripheral surface and the peripheral edge surface.
