Pure strong state batteries from Switzerland
Swiss Clean Battery is readied to begin commercial production of its pure strong state batteries in Switzerland. The batteries are based upon a safeguarded electrolyte made of a strong ion conductor, which aids to preserve inner resistance and capacity. The dealt with ion conductor is developed in the battery cell itself, comparable to a multi-component adhesive.
