Searching for a better battery
Imagine a world where you could charge your smartphone in just seconds. Same goes for laptops, power tools, medical devices, even electric cars. And then imagine that instead of traditional batteries that lose their charge very quickly, you’re able to use long-lasting energy storage systems that can last three times longer on a single charge. That’s just a snapshot of a world charged by the Nanotech Graphene SUPERbattery.
Graphene super battery
Thanks to its outstanding surface area and high electronic conductivity, Nanotech Energy used graphene to improve the electrochemical properties of the lithium-ion battery anode and cathode simultaneously.
This has enabled a new generation of lithium-ion batteries, we call graphene super battery (Gen I), with outstanding power density, energy density and cycling life.
Non-flammable Graphene Battery
Lithium ion batteries are widely used in modern electronics and electric cars due to their high energy density and long cycle life. However, there are increasing safety concerns after reports of the devices catching on fire due to battery failure.
Building safer batteries is critical for the future of energy storage. The improved properties of graphene electrodes combined with the thermal stability of Nanotech Energy’s patented graphene battery prevents its batteries from catching fire — promising a solution to the long-standing safety problems with lithium-ion batteries.
In addition to its resistance to fire, Nanotech Energy’s graphene battery also has the ability to operate over a wide temperature range (-20°C to +60°C / -4°F to +140°F), making it practical for use in all weather conditions.
M2+/M3+ hybrid battery
Nanotech Energy has developed groundbreaking energy storage technology that has the high capacity of a battery and the power performance of supercapacitors in one device.
This was made possible by carefully addressing the device chemistry and combining active materials with electrolytes that operate at high voltages. Nanotech Generation V batteries feature aqueous alkaline electrolytes and are assembled in the air without the need for expensive ‘dry rooms’ required for building today’s lithium-ion batteries, which promises ten times reduction in production cost.
Furthermore, these hybrid batteries can store charge comparable to a traditional lithium-ion battery, yet they can be recharged in just a few minutes compared to hours for conventional batteries.
In addition, the device combines very low ESR of less than 5 milliohms (18650 form factor) and essentially unlimited charge/discharge cycles. With their remarkable performance, Generation V will ultimately offer novel opportunities in powering the next generation of portable electronics.

The Non-Flammable Battery
After trying a large number of solvents and additive materials, we came up with a new electrolyte that not only is stable but also is made from inexpensive materials, easy to manufacture, and, of course, is non-flammable.
