Charge like A supercap, store like a battery: ZapGo’s carbon-ion technology

Imagine an EV that could add 300 miles of range with a 5-minute charge – roughly the same amount of time it takes to refuel an ICE vehicle. Many companies are working on technologies to enable faster charging, which would be a huge win for EV adoption. ZapGo, based in Oxford, UK and Charlotte, North… Read more »

ZapGo’s Carbon-Ion tech combines power density of supercapacitors and energy density of batteries

Williams Advanced Engineering has selected ZapGo, a spinout of Oxford University, to join a consortium working to develop next-generation battery systems for EVs (part of the UK government’s Faraday Battery Challenge). ZapGo’s Carbon-Ion technology, based on carbon nanomaterials including graphene, is intended to combine the power density of supercapacitors and the energy density of rechargeable… Read more »
