A new class of batteries which is up to 30% more compact and safer than current DC Li-ion batteries

The need

Current batteries store energy in DC (direct current). However, 90%+ of appliances use only AC (alternating current) power sources. Energy loss in conversions between AC and DC is unproductive.

The solution

The world’s first standalone AC batteries and special electric circuits that are safer, 30% more compact and have double the usual life cycle. All the existing materials are utilised as well as battery production lines, and this idea can be applied not only to Li-ion batteries but to any other type. The system including the Cockcroft-Walton Multiplier are flexible and can be adapted to existing systems.

The value proposition

• Safer than current DC Li-ion batteries.
• Up to 30% more compact in terms of volume.
• Double the life cycle.
• All the existing materials and battery production lines utilised.
