Amprius Raises $25M to Commercialize Next-Generation Lithium Ion Batteries

Menlo Park, CA | Posted on March 3rd, 2011

Amprius is commercializing high energy, silicon-based materials to enable next generation lithium-ion batteries. Amprius-enabled cells will ultimately offer a dramatic increase in energy, substantially increasing range and runtime for applications including consumer electronics and electric vehicles. Ampriusī technology has recently achieved key validation milestones for consumer electronics applications such as smartphones and continues to advance toward requirements necessary for electric drive vehicle applications.

"Our recent fundraising will enable us to deploy our first commercial product, validate our manufacturing processes, and launch a global presence," said to Dr. Kang Sun, CEO of Amprius. "We are delighted to have the support of new investors and the continued support of current investors as we embark on the next phase of our business."
