Nanotech 'superbatteries' that can last longer and charge faster that current tech begin mas


  • Batteries are more efficient, longer-lasting, cheaper, lighter and above all safer

  • Plant will take several month to ramp up to capacity

  • Batteries could be used in electric cars and for home energy storage

A Czech company opened on Monday a production line for batteries based on nanotechnology, which uses tiny parts invisible to human eyes.

The batteries are touted as potentially more efficient, longer-lasting, cheaper, lighter and above all safer.

The automatic line will operate for several months to get all necessary certifications.

Then, Prague-based company HE3DA said Monday it is ready to launch other lines in a new plant built in eastern Czech Republic, and at a factory in Slovakia.

Nanotechnology can increase the size and surface of batteries electrodes, making them sponge-like so that they can absorb more energy during charging and ultimately increasing the energy storage capacity.
