- Developing a new generation of rechargeable lithium-sulfur batteries for mobile electronics and electric vehicles
SION POWER is developing a new generation of rechargeable lithium-sulfur batteries for mobile electronics and electric vehicles. Based on the five times higher energy available from sulfur ions compared to other lithium chemistries, SION POWER's cell offers significant improvements in capacity, operating temperature and discharge rate. Proprietary thin film production techniques and the use of low cost raw materials keep costs no higher than current industry levels.
SION POWER, a technology spin-off from Brookhaven National Laboratories, was incorporated as Moltech Corporation in 1994. The Company chose the mission of developing a new class of electrochemical energy storage systems with characteristics far superior to those of any other commercial battery products. Once the capabilities of sulfur chemistry were demonstrated, a seasoned team of battery scientists was recruited. Reflecting the power obtained from sulfur ions, the name of the company was changed to SION POWER in 2002.
