The Problem

Batteries are just not good enough anymore.


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


Exposure to high temperature causes rapid degradation of the chemistry.


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.


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


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


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