Fast Battery Charge Technology
Our patented fast battery charge technology is the key to the growth of electric vehicles and users of cell phones, laptop computers, power tools, etc. are not stranded without power, fast charging off-the-shelf batteries in minutes, without overheating. Competitive Advantage: (1) Electric automobile charging stations need fast battery charge times similar to gas refueling, using off the shelf batteries. Our 20 minute time is close while the state of the art is 40 minutes. (2) Among industrial vehicles, 95% of forklift trucks are forced to swap 1 ton batteries between shifts as fast battery charging alternatives require about 3.5 hours but regularly overheat and damage the batteries, releasing toxic fumes. We eliminate these problems and enable up to 75% savings for industrial rapid charging and double the revenue for automotive charging stations. (3) Owners of devices such as cell phones, laptops, and power tools are often stranded waiting several hours to recharge. Our 20 minute fast battery charge can solve that problem from a 110 volt outlet.
