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 […]
