06 Jul NanoGraf Enables Most Energy Dense Battery
On June 23, NanoGraf, a developer of advanced energy materials to improve battery life and charging time for electric vehicles, announced the achievement of a new battery milestone. The startup released the record-setting 3.8Ah (800Wh/L) 18650 cell, which is a 17.3% increase in energy density. Their silicon-based anode is a scalable, low-cost enable of the world’s most powerful and longest lasting cells.
One of the biggest opportunities for more energy-dense batteries lies with electric vehicles, where “range anxiety” is a major impediment to mainstream adoption. NanoGraf’s new cell technology could immediately provide a boost to electric vehicles, which would last approximately 28 percent longer on a single charge compared to similar vehicles on the road today.
Automobility Ltd is proud to see its portfolio startup NanoGraf reach such a significant energy-density milestone following a period of rapid growth for the company.
