RENO, Nev., June 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dragonfly Energy Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: DFLI) (“Dragonfly Energy” or the “Company”), an industry leader in energy storage and producer of deep cycle lithium-ion storage batteries, is to be awarded a new US patent based on allowed US Patent Application No. 16/329/914 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The patent is for the “preparation and powder film deposition of pre-coated powders” and specifically addresses the feedstock material portion of the process in the production of conventional Li-ion ion batteries and nonflammable solid-state lithium batteries, paving the way for Dragonfly Energy to bring nonflammable LiFePO4 storage batteries to market.
The Company believes this allowance represents another important achievement and a major step forward in the Company’s mission to produce nonflammable lithium batteries here in the U.S. Solvent-free cell production is known to have a significant cost advantage over traditional slurry coating, and the Company has successfully applied the process to a variety of different battery chemistries – including all-solid-state cells. The Company intends to continue to innovate and work to bring the safest and most cost-effective products to market to revolutionize how we store energy on the grid.
Manufacturability at scale remains one of the biggest challenges to the commercialization of solid-state batteries. The Company’s new patent enables Dragonfly Energy to use a powder-coating process that eliminates the need for large drying rooms, replacing methods which require a significant amount of time and expensive heavy machinery; making the process highly scalable within a reduced footprint, and allowing for increased production in a reduced time frame and at a lower cost.
Dragonfly Energy’s nonflammable all solid-state batteries will contain a solid electrolyte rather than liquid, making them lighter, smaller, non-flammable, and potentially cheaper to manufacture than conventional batteries. Dragonfly Energy has validated its cell manufacturing technology and is optimizing its cell chemistry in preparation for commercialization, recently cycling a prototype cells over 1,000 cycles.
