South 8 technologies
South 8 Technologies developed a novel chemistry for lithium batteries that could lead to the next generation of energy storage devices. Their patent-pending technology allows for a substantial increase in energy density and exceptional performance at record low temperatures. Aspects of their technology also make it safer, including significant mitigation of thermal runaway, and a substantially lower flammability than conventional capacitor materials.
Leveraging low-cost materials and conventional manufacturing, South 8 Technologies offers a unique solution for a variety of transportation, high-atmosphere, aerospace, and military applications.
