This unique battery offers energy density comparable to a lithium ion battery, but over a much longer functional lifetime with drastically improved safety and cradle-to-cradle sustainability. The Ryden battery charges 20 times faster than lithium ion batteries. It is also more powerful than other advanced batteries, operating above four volts. The battery allows for consolidation of the supply chain, with only one active material — carbon. Manufacturing of the Ryden battery is under no threat of supply disruption or price spikes from rare metals, rare earth or heavy metals.
The Ryden battery is the first ever high performance battery that meets consumer lifecycle demand, rated for more than 3,000 charge/discharge cycles. The Ryden battery eliminates the unstable active material used in other high performance batteries, greatly reducing fire and explosion hazard. The battery experiences minimal thermal change during operation, eliminating the threat of a thermal runaway. Finally, the Ryden battery can be 100 percent charged and discharged with no damage to the battery.
