Automotive Overview

Rechargeable nickel-zinc (NiZn) batteries offer many compelling benefits for the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and stop-start markets, providing a smaller, lighter and more powerful alternative to incumbent rechargeable battery technologies. NiZn offers superior energy and power density compared to lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) and avoids the high costs and safety issues associated with lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.
