Claims

1. A storage body, comprising:
a storage unit that stores electric energy; and
a case that houses the storage unit,
wherein the case comprises:
a frame-shaped outer shell body having an outer peripheral surface and two end surfaces that respectively include opening portions; and
a pair of laminate film pieces that are constituted by flexible laminated sheets and adhered to the two end surfaces of the outer shell body so as to form a storage chamber inside the outer shell body, and
each of the laminate film pieces comprises:
an adhesion portion that is adhered to the outer shell body; and
a film portion that faces the storage chamber,
wherein one of the pair of the laminate film pieces has a first outside adhesion portion of which an entire surface is adhered to the outer peripheral surface while another of the pair of the laminate film pieces has a second outside adhesion portion that is adhered to the first outside adhesion portion such that the first outside adhesion portion is disposed between the second outside adhesion portion and the outer peripheral surface.
2. The storage body as defined in claim 1, further comprising a frame body that is fitted to an outer peripheral surface of the second outside adhesion portion, and
a contact surface of the outer shell body to the first outside adhesion portion and a fitting surface of the frame body to the second outside adhesion portion are both formed as tapered surfaces.
3. The storage body as defined in claim 1, further comprising an electrode terminal that is connected to the storage unit and projects to an outside of the outer shell body.
4. The storage body as defined in claim 1, wherein the storage unit is constituted by a laminated body formed by laminating a positive electrode body and a negative electrode body via a separator over a plurality of layers, and an electrolyte that wets the laminated body.
5. The storage body as defined in claim 1, wherein the storage body is constituted by an electric double layer capacitor cell.
6. A storage device formed by laminating a plurality of storage bodies, wherein each of the storage bodies comprises:
a storage unit that stores electric energy; and
a case that houses the storage unit,
the case comprises:
a frame-shaped outer shell body having an outer peripheral surface and two end surfaces that respectively include opening portions; and
a pair of laminate film pieces that are constituted by flexible laminated sheets and adhered to the two end surfaces of the outer shell body so as to form a storage chamber inside the outer shell body, and
each of the laminate film pieces comprises:
an adhesion portion that is adhered to the outer shell body; and
a film portion that faces the storage chamber,
wherein one of the pair of the laminate film pieces has a first outside adhesion portion of which an entire surface is adhered to the outer peripheral surface while another of the pair of the laminate film pieces has a second outside adhesion portion that is adhered to the first outside adhesion portion such that the first outside adhesion portion is disposed between the second outside adhesion portion and the outer peripheral surface.
7. The storage device as defined in claim 6, wherein the film portions of two adjacent storage bodies of the storage bodies contact each other.
8. The storage device as defined in claim 6, further comprising a pressure holder that presses the laminated storage bodies in a lamination direction.
9. The storage device as defined in claim 8, wherein each of the storage bodies is constituted by an electric double layer capacitor cell in which the storage unit, which is constituted by a laminated body formed by laminating a positive electrode body and a negative electrode body via a separator over a plurality of layers and an electrolyte that wets the laminated body, is housed in the case,
for each of the storage bodies a lamination direction width of the laminated body in a free state is greater than a lamination direction width of the outer shell body, and the pressure holder compresses the laminated body such that the lamination direction width of the laminated body becomes equal to the lamination direction width of the outer shell body.
10. The storage device as defined in claim 8, wherein each of the storage units is an electric double layer capacitor cell comprising:
a laminated body comprising:
positive electrode bodies;
negative electrode bodies;
separators between the positive electrode bodies and the negative electrode bodies,
wherein the positive electrode bodies and the negative electrode bodies are laminated via the separators to form a plurality of layers each including one of the positive electrode bodies, one of the negative electrode bodies and one of the separators; and
an electrolyte, that wets the laminated body, housed in the case that stores the storage unit,
wherein a lamination direction width of the laminated body in a free state is greater than a lamination direction width of the outer shell body, and
further wherein the pressure holder compresses the laminated body such that the lamination direction width of the laminated body becomes equal to the lamination direction width of the outer shell body.
11. The storage device as defined in claim 6, wherein for each storage body, the first outside adhesion portion includes resin which adheres to the outer shell body and the second outside adhesion portion includes resin which adheres to the first outside adhesion portion.
12. The storage body as defined in claim 1, wherein the first outside adhesion portion includes resin which adheres to the outer shell body and the second outside adhesion portion includes resin which adheres to the first outside adhesion portion.
13. The storage body as defined in claim 1, wherein the storage unit is an electric double layer capacitor cell constituted by a laminated body comprising:
positive electrode bodies;
negative electrode bodies; and
separators between the positive electrode bodies and the negative electrode bodies,
wherein the positive electrode bodies and the negative electrode bodies are laminated via the separators to form a plurality of layers each including one of the positive electrode bodies, one of the negative electrode bodies and one of the separators.
14. The storage body as defined in claim 1, wherein the first outside adhesion portion and the second outside adhesion portion are parallel to each other.
15. The storage device as defined in claim 6, wherein the first outside adhesion portion and the second outside adhesion portion are parallel to each other.
