Lithium Ion Batteries

Investing in Lithium Hasn’t Panned Out. Yet.

Drones are now delivering goods and counting inventory in warehouses. Svelte electric vehicles are plying our roadways, powered by green electricity that comes from sophisticated solar microgrids. All this progress is made possible by the lithium ion battery. Intuitively, it may make sense to invest in lithium batteries, but there’s one problem. It’s the same […]

How Lithium-Ion Batteries Will Continue to Improve

We’ve recently begun the rather interesting exercise of going through and summarizing the more than 1,600 articles published on Nanalyze since we began waxing poetic almost seven years ago. We were surprised to see that when it comes to grid-scale storage, flow batteries just never really achieved the traction investors were looking for, with more […]

Sustainable Lithium Batteries from Sweden’s Northvolt

Back in 1969, the Apollo lunar module used 29 volt, 400 amp hour batteries during its historic moon landing. The cells responsible for the safe landing and subsequent return of the crew were 60 kg beasts with plenty of built-in redundancy to ensure the success of the mission. Today, you can order a battery pack with similar […]

Lithium Battery Technologies Take in Massive Funding

Trying to stay on top of disruptive technologies isn’t easy. Sometimes, things sneak up on us. Last month, a firm called Sila Nanotechnologies landed $70 million in funding for their lithium battery technology. That’s when we realized that a lot of funding has been going into the lithium battery technology space in 2018. It’s a […]

The Biggest Pure-play Lithium Stock Plans IPO

If making money off “the next big thing” was that simple, everyone would be doing it. Take solar as an example. It’s treated retail investors poorly, despite some phenomenal growth numbers. Then there’s lithium. When we first looked at this investment thesis, we dismissed it because the three major lithium producers only saw a fraction of […]

The World’s Most Energy Dense Lithium Batteries

In the past, we’ve seen a lot of interest from readers in battery technologies, mainly lithium batteries of the type used in electric cars or drones along with large scale energy storage solutions for use by utility companies. It’s mainly advances in lithium batteries that people are most interested in because they promise to increase the […]

A List of New Lithium Battery Technology Startups

If you stop and think about it for a second, advances in lithium batteries have powered a fair number of emerging technologies in this decade. Electric cars, drones, smartphones, these are all becoming prolific because of improvements in lithium battery technologies. When it comes to portable batteries, short of some entirely new battery technology being […]

3 Lithium Mining Stocks That Produce 90% of All Lithium

Investing in emerging technologies can often involve “picks and shovels” plays that are indirect ways to profit from the adoption of a certain technology. Take electric cars as an example. One investing thesis has been that Elon Musk’s gigafactory that builds lithium batteries to power electric cars is going to need a isht load of lithium. The […]

7 Startups Looking to Improve Cell Phone Battery Life

While everyone is running around like mad looking for cartoon creatures, their cell phone batteries are starting to take a toll. If we can’t develop cell phones with sufficient battery life that will allow us to run around capturing mythical cartoon creatures for hours on end, then what is this world coming to? The “Pokémon Go […]

19 Lithium Junior Mining Stocks

One of our most popular articles lately has been one we published in August 2015 titled “Don’t Invest in Lithium Mining Companies“. The reason this article has become quite popular lately can be attributed to the below graph from Google Trends that shows people’s interest in lithium mining based on their searches: As you can see […]
