Market trends and growth
The global market is experiencing an increasing demand for consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, media players and drones
The development of modern electronic devices calls for constant improvement in battery technology. The Batteries aims to capitalize on this growth
We aim to commercialize our manufacturing technology for thin film solid state batteries en-masse. Our goals are:
- revolutionizing the current battery manufacturing industry by introducing a new production technology that will provide the basis for further development of batteries for the years to come
- providing affordable thin film batteries for consumer electronics, IoT devices and other markets
Cost structure and revenue streams
The target annual production capacity of our pilot production line is about 10 million Wh/year (for example, about 6 million batteries for premium smartwatch). The production of such a moderate scale will have relatively flexible manufacturing and commercial processes. It will let us adjust our product lineup and business model promptly to meet the new challenges set by the global market.
Investigation of the most promising approaches to increase the energy density of the batteries. The thin film technology was chosen.
A new approach to obtain thin film batteries using vacuum deposition equipment with lower material usage requirements and costs was established.
R&D equipment developed. The feasibility of high production consistency and material utilization using high-density plasma evaporation confirmed
The working prototype of the production line is completed. The working prototypes (demo samples) of advanced battery cells are manufactured
