Solid State Batteries

Meet the Companies Doing Energy Storage for Space Travel

It seems everyone is chasing Elon Musk’s dream of electric vehicles in every garage, even as investors bet against the success of Tesla (TSLA) through short selling its stock. A big part of Musk’s strategy seems predicated on taking control of key parts of his supply chain, with energy storage obviously playing an outsized role. […]

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 […]

Ilika: A Solid State Lithium Battery Stock

There’s a concept in finance called “home bias” or “domestic bias” which states that as investors, we’re most likely to buy stocks that trade in the countries we call home. Increasingly though, platforms such as Interactive Brokers allow investors to trade stocks on multiple foreign exchanges uncovering some interesting lesser-known stocks that provide exposure to disruptive […]

Cymbet: Solid State Batteries with Energy Harvesting

In a recent article we wrote about Sakti3 and their ambitions to make cheap, solid-state lithium batteries a reality. Solid-state batteries contain no electrolyte, and therefore do not incur the additional packaging costs or safety concerns that are inherent to traditional lithium batteries. Solid-state batteries actually exist today, but the problem is that they are very […]

Sakti3’s Solid State Lithium Batteries

Energy storage is a hot topic among investors these days. From electric cars to solar energy storage, some of today’s most disruptive technologies are being held back by archaic battery technologies. Take basic lithium-ion batteries for example, which haven’t changed dramatically since Sony first introduced them to consumers in 1991. The technology itself isn’t going […]
