Cuberg is developing and plans to commercialize a high-performance solid state electrolyte for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. Their technology will eliminate many of the deficiencies of current lithium-ion batteries, including: limited energy and power density, flammability of the liquid organic electrolyte, instability at elevated temperature, short circuits due to lithium dendrites, and decay in energy and power with cycling and long-term storage. Cuberg's product is ideally suited for both electric vehicles and portable electronics.
