Spun out of a lab at Tufts University Dept. of Chemical Engineering

R&D for the Lithio Storage Battery began at the Tufts' Science & Technology Center in 2016 under the Ph.D. research of Founder, Anthony D'Angelo, in the laboratory of Prof. Matthew Panzer. Mr. D'Angelo leveraged his expertise on gel synthesis, characterization, and battery engineering to develop the patent-pending technology of Lithio Storage


iPhone Processing Speed vs. Battery Energy Density

The Problem

Battery technology has been relatively unchanged in the past few decades compared to our electronic and consumer devices. This has created a bottleneck in the power of consumer electronic technologies.

The Solution

The patent-pedning gel technology of Lithio Storage utilizes commercially available materials to synthesize an affordable, thermally stable electrolyte that has minimal fire hazards.

Stability up to 80°C

The Lithio Gel exhibits minimal weight loss while being held at 80°C compared to a commercial electrolyte. This results validates enhanced performance at higher temperatures for Li-ion batteries utilizing the Lithio Gel.


Batteries Designed for Wearables

Current hardware companies must design their product around the form factor of commercial batteries due to the limited size and shape offered by manufacturers. This scenario leads to wasted space in electronic devices that decreases the space that could be occupied by the battery, which effectively reduces the energy density (battery lifetime between charging) of the product.

The lithio gel advantage

  • Patent-pending technology for flexible, high energy density batteries
  • Mechanically-robust design for next-gen wearables
  • Increased anodic stability up to 5.5 V vs Li/Li+
  • Safer battery design and components 
The Lithio Electrolyte exhibits comparable Li-ion performance as safer liquid electrolytes while exhibiting a flexible solid composite, which is above the DoE's benchmark for conductivity.
