NexTech Batteries was founded in 2016 with exclusive Li-S technology licensure from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). LBNL research started in 2002* under Professor Elton Cairns. New research started in 2015 under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) contract, continuing with Professor Cairns.
Today, NexTech Batteries is headquartered in Reno, Nevada, where we continue to file new IP, develop our trade secrets, and build our manufacturing know-how. We believe that Li-S is the most promising next-generation technology, which is why we’re committed to developing safer, more efficient, and more advanced batteries.
