A battery built to scale.

Transitioning to 100% renewable will require more batteries than the world can make.
So we made a new battery from abundant and inexpensive materials. 

Complete safety. Uncompromising performance.

Zinc-ion's water-based design removes any risk of fire.

Drop-in replacement for lithium-ion.

Zinc-ion batteries look like lithium-ion and operate the same way too.
We can replace lithium-ion in any stationary energy storage application.


The zinc-ion battery was designed from the atom up for stationary energy storage. Our unique approach enables better energy density, power capability, and service life than any other zinc battery.
