Amionx Revolutionizes Lithium-ion Battery Safety with Unique Technology

CARLSBAD, CA -- Amionx announces commercial availability of its Safe Core technology. The Company plans to broadly license its patented and proprietary Safe Core technology for use in lithium-ion batteries globally. This transformative technology acts like a circuit breaker to prevent lithium-ion batteries from being the source of a fire or an explosion, which is typically due to three primary causes:
• Overcharge
• Internal short
• External heat

Existing techniques, while improving safety, do not eliminate lithium-ion batteries from being the source of a fire or explosion. These existing techniques typically focus from the outside-in with the use of robust battery management systems, hardened shells and fire-retardant chemicals which add weight and expense. Amionx is focused on safety from the core of the battery outward and works even when other safety measures fail or are not activated.

The key attributes of Amionx Safe Core are:
• Activates by trigger of temperature, current or voltage thresholds
• Virtually no increase to the bill of materials for lithium-ion batteries
• No incremental capital cost
• Longer lifetime of battery
• Longer shelf life of battery
• Maintains attractive qualities of lithium-ion batteries such as energy density
• Opens or expands market opportunities for greater use of lithium-ion batteries that are currently limited by safety concerns including electric vehicles and power storage applications
• Allows for design of smaller and lighter battery systems
• Applicable to other chemistries as well as solid state
