The Problem

Batteries are just not good enough anymore.

Energy

They don't store enough energy to power the technology of the future.

Durability

Exposure to high temperature causes rapid degradation of the chemistry.

Safety

Improper operation quickly leads to venting, fire, and explosion.

Our Solution

We redesigned the battery from the ground up to address the major challenges of lithium-ion battery technology.

Materials

Our highly stable proprietary electrolyte enables the use of high-voltage cathodes and lithium metal anodes in a safe and reliable format.

Design

Intelligent cell design and engineering allow us to produce commercial-format lithium metal rechargeable cells with high quality and performance.

Manufacturing

We have developed our technology from Day 1 to be a drop-in solution for off-the-shelf lithium-ion manufacturing equipment.
