Title
(EN) Energy storage unit
Abstract
(EN)

An energy storage unit having plural energy storage devices, each of which includes a container housing an electrode assembly and positive and negative electrode terminals electrically connected to the electrode assembly and extending from the container in the same direction, includes: a bus bar electrically connecting a first terminal, which is one of the positive electrode terminal and the negative electrode terminal of a first energy storage device included in the plural energy storage devices, and a second terminal, which is one of the positive electrode terminal and the negative electrode terminal of a second energy storage device included in the plural energy storage devices and opposite in polarity to the first terminal; a packing member interposed between the first terminal and the container of the first energy storage device; and an insulating member interposed between the bus bar and the container of the first energy storage device.
