Lyten Lithium-Sulfur Batteries
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 battery development platform which is enabling us to overcome these issues. We are unlocking 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 will enable our customers to achieve long cycle life.
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 will have ~60% lower carbon footprint than conventional Lithium-ion batteries.
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 will produce 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 the second half of 2022. The Pilot Line will have the ability to produce up to 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 will be <1,000 miles compared with 29,000 miles for standard NMC 811 Li-ion battery supply chains.
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 280 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.
Lyten batteries are ideal for electric vehicles because they have the ability to charge rapidly.
Lyten Li-S batteries will 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 will handle vigorous charge and discharge protocols, including 100% DOD.
