Dyson Invests $1.4B in Battery Tech: Does This Company Have an Answer?

It has been reported recently that Dyson will spend $1.44 billion (£1 billion) on Li-ion battery development over the next five years. But is an Oxford, UK-based company already closer to a revolutionary breakthrough in this area of technology which may cause Li-ion to be ultimately obsolete?

Zap&Go has the first Carbon-Ion™ cell that is ready for consumer products now, combining the fast-charging characteristics of a supercapacitor with the near performance of a Li-ion battery.  And it does it safely (no fires/explosions) and it is recyclable. This is NOT just another technology “science-project” that is in the lab, yet to be developed.

At the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Zap&Go displayed a range of functioning products where the recharge time has been reduced from hours to sub-five minutes (Razor E300-scooter, a Nyko Zap&Go Carbon-Ion powered bicycle energy pack, a Nyko Bluetooth five-minute charging speaker, an 18-volt power drill and a cordless cleaner).

ZapGo was founded by CEO Stephen Voller, an experienced business leader and a recognized authority on energy storage technologies. He:

  • Is the inventor of Carbon-Ion cell technology
  • Launched the first ever CE-marked hydrogen fuel cell product
  • Has taken several technology businesses through concept, design and into production

Stephen can discuss:

  • What challenges do Li-ion batteries face?
  • What makes Zap&Go’s solution unique?
  • Why is it important for consumer electronics to have better, safer batteries?
  • Will the reliance and innovation of “smart home” devices push the need for innovative batteries faster?
  • Why are Dyson and Tesla focused on improving battery technology?
