Matter Labs Success Stories: Battery Streak

Based in Camarillo, Battery Streak is at the forefront of revolutionizing battery technology, aiming to slash lithium-ion battery charging times from hours to minutes. Founded in 2017 with the help of entrepreneur David Grant, Battery Streak emerged from the collaborative efforts of UCLA professors Dr. Sarah Tolbert and Dr. Bruce Dunn, who developed the groundbreaking technology behind it.

Unlike conventional methods, Battery Streak's technology enables batteries to charge without undergoing a chemical phase change, resulting in rapid charging at room temperature while prolonging battery life. This innovation hinges on the use of Niobium, a unique substance with properties akin to both a capacitor and a battery, promising remarkable advancements across various industries.
