Welcome to Axion Power
Wednesday, 25 April 2007

We are a Delaware corporation with a research and development operating subsidiary in New Castle, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. Axion is developing advanced batteries and an energy storage product based on our patented lead carbon battery (PbCTM) technology.

Conventional lead-acid batteries use negative electrodes made of sponge lead pasted onto a lead grid current collector. In comparison, our technology uses negative electrodes made of microporous activated carbon with very high surface area. The result is a battery-supercapacitor hybrid that uses less lead.

The Axion PbCTM is a "platform technology" which means that energy storage devices based on our technology can be configured to accommodate a wide range of energy storage and power delivery requirements by changing the number, geometry and arrangement of the electrodes.

Our PbCTM  represents the first major advance in lead-acid battery technology in 30 years.
