To prevent degradation of battery efficiency generated by serious current variation in rechargeable batteries, we researched a hybrid battery combining a super capacitor and a rechargeable battery. The hybrid battery shows high efficiency in a lifetime and a voltage drop. The hybrid battery was composed of a rechargeable battery, a current regulator and a super capacitor that can be used with supporting power. Before the experiment, the hybrid battery was simulated for current regulation and an electric current in a super capacitor by using the Pspice program. After that, we compared the efficiency of the hybrid battery with the efficiency of the normal battery. In this result, we demonstrated that the hybrid battery has a higher efficiency and a longer lifespan than the normal battery.
