Petalite have developed technology and intellectual property for commercially ready systems to supercharge batteries to 100% in under 15 minutes. The technology is 4x faster than leading battery system competitors, saving time, an extremely valuable asset to the customer. The first product to utilise Petalite’s intellectual property portfolio with a 100% charge in just 15 minutes is the Petalite Flux, the world’s fastest charging external battery for mobile phones.

The Petalite intellectual property is scalable and will be adapted and applied to other markets such as portable power supplies, mobility devices and the automotive sector.

Petalite’s fundamental change of technology and IP, which is 4x faster than leading competitors, saving time, an extremely valuable asset to the customer, creates a significant competitive advantage and high barriers of entry for competitors. Petalite are also the only company to develop their own high-powered chargers; something other competitors rely on the OEM’s for, creating a bottleneck in the technology in terms of power delivery.

Petalite’s IP creates a significant competitive advantage and high barriers of entry for competitors, it’s intelligent connector design create a new, licensable connector standard for high power charging.

Petalte have implemented a unique Lithium charging algorithm in their designs to decrease charge times to less than 15 minutes. They are also the only company to develop their own high-powered AC-DC chargers; something other competitors rely on the OEM’s for, creating a bottleneck in the technology in terms of power delivery.
