Smart solution for increased longevity of your daily used battery products!
Batteries, and especially the most commonly used battery type (lithium-ion batteries), are playing an increasingly significant role in our life and we rely on the continued performance of these batteries. However, the capacity of Li-ion batteries degrades over time, partly to bad charging behavior. At Liion Power, they are working on a solution for this problem; the design of a smart external Li-ion battery charge optimizer to increase the longevity and performance of any Li-ion battery.
Liion Power is also selected for the ACE incubation program! This program helps to turn your tech or science startup idea into a successful company. ACE will offer a 9-week incubation program, followed by 2 years of guidance. This includes knowledge on how to run a successful company, access to networks, and individual mentoring sessions. The 2+ year survival rate of projects that join this incubation program is more than 70%! This will help Liion Power to establish their brand and scale up their business.
