We haven’t invented a new battery. Instead, we’ve developed a new way of controlling energy inside of existing lithium-ion batteries, which enables them to hold more capacity and not degrade over time.

Lithium-ion batteries get charged and discharged through a constant stream of energy, usually without any attention given to internal or external circumstances. This ends up causing many problems, ranging from passive SEI layer formation to internal polarization, causing the battery to not fully utilize it’s active materials and to degrade over time. The BatteryOS system is designed to dynamically manage energy inside of a li-ion battery pack during charging, idling, and discharging of the pack.

This enhanced control method allows any OEM li-ion battery to gain the ability store 10-40% more capacity (varies between specific type of li-ion chemistry), have a 4x higher cycle count, and not degrade in capacity over time.

Capacity fading prevention: Our patent-pending process maintains the lithium ion diffusion at optimal levels and eliminates concentration polarization and thus allows the Li-ions to be more uniformly extracted from or reinserted into the cathode materials. This maintains the SEI layer at a stable state and prevents battery capacity fading.

Capacity increase: Our battery pack architecture and controlling algorithm allows to fully utilize the active materials in battery cells. The maximum theoretic specific energy density of li-ion batteries is calculated to be between 380 – 460 Wh/kg. In the real world, li-ion batteries typically produce 100 – 125 Wh/kg. Our technology allows for better utilization of the battery cell’s active materials, and thus allows the battery to charge more than it previously could. Taking the above numbers as an example, a li-ion battery controlled by BatteryOS would produce 110 – 175 Wh/kg.
