Company Summary

SiNode anodes offer 10X higher capacity and a 10X decrease in charging time compared with current anode technology. As mobile processing power has continued to increase in accordance with Moore’s law, improvements in battery technology have failed to keep pace. SiNode seeks to change the landscape for Li-ion batteries so they can meet the demands of a wide range of industries, from consumer electronics to electric vehicles.
