SiNANOde is a silicon-graphite anode capable of vastly improving the performance of today’s best lithium-ion batteries. SiNANOde can double the life of a lithium-ion battery, a 100% improvement over current technology.
In many ways, the advent of the lithium-ion battery was the key to the mobile technology revolution. Smartphones, tablet PCs and electric sports cars are not possible without lithium-ion batteries.
In the years since the introduction of lithium-ion batteries, mobile technologies have changed wildly while energy storage technology has remained nearly frozen in time. Computer processing power continues to follow “Moore’s Law” by doubling in power every 18 months, while battery capacity has only doubled only once in the last 12 years. Progress has slowed to a near stop in recent years as manufacturers hit the ceiling of process improvements like compressing more material into each battery cell by sheer force. The result is that our mobile technology is more powerful than ever, but unable to make it through a busy day on a single charge. We need better batteries to power our modern world.
Working with leading battery makers, Nanosys has proven that the SiNANOde anode will yield generation-leaping breakthroughs in energy storage capacity and power density, as well as improved charge/dis-charge cycles. This means we can make batteries that are lighter, longer lasting and more powerful. Your cell phone, laptop or electric vehicle battery could last twice as long while remaining the same size and weight.
SiNANOde is added to the lithium-ion battery using standard industry manufacturing processes.
