In 1901, Thomas Edison was awarded a U.S. patent for a nickel-zinc battery. He was intrigued by its high energy density, efficiency, and temperature tolerance advantages compared to other chemistries, but he was never able to apply the technology commercially due to poor cycle life. This well-known “Achille’s heel” of the NiZn battery persisted for over a century even with sustained development efforts by the best battery companies in the world.

Almost 100 years later an exciting breakthrough in advanced electrolyte formulation was developed by PowerGenix that enabled a significant increase in battery cycle life. This groundbreaking discovery and subsequent electrode integration are now the core technology of ZincFive’s electrochemistry, and the cornerstone of the company’s battery and product solutions portfolio.
