New 18650 Nanotech Power Cell Leverages Graphene and American Manufacturing to Power an Unprecedented Era in Battery Technology

SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla., Dec. 29, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- American consumers can now eliminate the risk of devastating e-bike battery fires after Nanotech Energy's inherently safe 18650 cells went on public sale at through its marketing partner Voltaplex.

The cells, which are currently available for pre-order, combine Nanotech Energy's proprietary electrolyte and electrodes with Soteria's metallized polymer current collectors to achieve a major breakthrough in battery technology. The result is a 100% American-made, non-flammable lithium-ion battery pack that has proven its strength and endurance by surviving a remarkable abuse test involving a 4.5BRA bullet shot at a velocity of 2917 feet. per second.

The cells available on the Voltaplex website are suitable for e-bike, robotics, medical and military applications. They are manufactured exclusively at Nanotech Energy's new 50,000 square foot Chico 2 manufacturing facility in Chico, CA.

Curtis Collar, sales and marketing director at Nanotech Energy, commented: "Every month in 2023, we have read about the devastating impact of huge fires caused by cheap and dangerous batteries that have cost people their homes, their businesses and even their lives. Today we say that enough is enough.

Brian Morin, CEO of Voltaplex and Soteria, explained: "It has been a privilege to work with the talented team at Nanotech to help develop this innovative American-made battery cell. Combining Nanotech's non-flammable electrolyte with the current collector from Soteria which acts as a fuse within the battery provides a unique combination of safety in a cell that can suffer tremendous damage without turning on. With over 100 companies having already pre-ordered the cell, we look forward to working with the industry to implement this new level of security".
