NEWS FLASH: Lyten introduces Next Generation Lithium-Sulfur Battery for Electric Vehicles. Read More.

To Develop the ultimate battery…we had to develop the ultimate material.

Lyten is an advanced materials company that developed Lyten 3D Graphene®, a patented library of materials that has enabled breakthroughs in energy storage, composite systems, and chemical & passive sensors. Lyten’s pristine three-dimensional graphene materials greatly improve characteristics of other materials and when formulated into our advanced battery chemistry, unlocks the true potential of Li-S energy storage through Sulfur-Caging™. Lyten Batteries for electric vehicles deliver higher energy density for extended driving range, faster charging, greatly improved safety, and the lowest carbon footprint of any battery.

What Others Are Saying

A Unique Solution

“Lyten’s 3D Graphene material offers a unique solution to help overcome polysulfide shuttling, one of the key issues limiting the commercialization of lithium-sulfur batteries. We look forward to following Lyten’s progress.”

— James Frith, Head of Energy Storage, BloombergNEF

No Nickel, Manganese, or Cobalt

“Lyten uses Benchmark Minerals’ Lithium reporting services to source US-produced lithium.  Since Lyten’s lithium sulfur batteries use no nickel, manganese, or cobalt, Lyten is able to use 100% domestic, US-sourced materials.”

— Andrew Leyland, Head of Strategic Advisory, Benchmark Minerals

Ahead of the Competition

“While I’m glad other companies are working hard to bring Lithium-Sulfur into the marketplace, Lyten’s approach is better as they synthesize the material from the ground up. This allows them to tune the structure and chemical composition of the electrodes, putting them ahead of the competition.”

— Principal Systems Engineer, Major Auto Manufacturer

Lyten Batteries Are Ahead of Solid State

What is a Lithium Sulfur Battery – and Why Has It Been So Difficult to Develop?

Lithium-Sulfur battery chemistry has long been sought as the ultimate battery with a theoretical energy density of 2,500 Wh/kg.

However, there have been multiple technical obstacles that have made Li-S difficult, if not impossible, to commercially develop.  

Lyten has made a major breakthrough with our end-to-end patented battery development platform which has enabled us to overcome these issues. We’ve unlocked the long-held desire to make Li-S commercially viable with more energy density than legacy Li-ion or Solid State.

Battery Energy Density

LytCell EV™ lithium-sulfur batteries designed to deliver three times (3X) the gravimetric energy density of conventional lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.

Battery Cycle Life

Lyten has engineered 3D Graphene structures that cage sulfur in the cathode, enabling our customers to achieve over 1,400 cycles with Lyten Li-S batteries.

Safety

LytCell EV™ batteries will be safer in vehicles  because unlike Li-Ion batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries do not experience thermal runaway reactions, nor do they combust when punctured, crushed, or overcharged. 

Lowest Carbon Footprint

Lyten batteries have 60% lower carbon footprint than conventional Lithium-ion batteries, and lower than solid state.

Cobalt & Nickel Free

Unlike Li-Ion, Lyten’s Li-S batteries do not use Nickel, Manganese, or Cobalt. Lyten does not source from conflict-based countries or mines that produce hazardous or toxic waste.

Battery Form Factors

Lyten is capable of producing Li-S cells in pouch, cylindrical, and prismatic form factors, including the world’s first 18650 Lithium-Sulfur battery.

Li-S Manufacturing Pilot Line

Lyten’s 3D Graphene and Lithium-Sulfur Cell Pilot Line, located in San Jose, CA, will come online in December 2021.  The Pilot Line will have the ability to produce over a quarter of a million cells per year in support of customer qualification.  The Pilot Line will be tooled to produce pouch, prismatic, and cylindrical cells in numerous sizes.

USMCA Supply Chain

Lithium-Sulfur technology enables North American-based sourcing and manufacturing. Lyten Li-S cell are produced from readily available materials. The distance traveled by Lyten’s supply chain is <1,000 miles compared with 29,000 miles for standard NMC 811 Li-ion battery supply chains.

i

Strong IP Position

Having engineered 3-Dimensional Graphene, Lyten has established itself as the global leader in 3D Graphene and Li-S Cell Intellectual Property with over 250 patents granted and pending.  The patents span from fundamental material patents to application patents including 3D Graphene for use in Li-S cells, light-weighting of Composites, Wireless and Self-Powered Sensors, and more than 30 other applications.

Charge Rate

Lyten batteries are ideal for electric vehicles because they have the ability to charge rapidly, demonstrated by 3C charge rates (20 minutes).

g

Operating Range

Lyten Li-S batteries deliver reliable power across a broad operating range between -30°C to +60°C. Unlike solid state, Lyten batteries require no external pressure to perform.

*

Depth of Discharge

Lyten batteries for electric vehicles and other applications can handle vigorous charge and discharge protocols, including 100% DOD.
