The rechargeable battery market is unlike any other industry. Next generation solutions are pressing and vital to continued growth of many offshoot markets--portables, electric vehicles, grid storage. The Polaris team understands the trends associated with the rapidly changing rechargeable market, knows the players, and can give informed advice.

We work with your investors, helping to streamline your working relationship. We know what investors want to see in

Performing Due Diligence
Writing business plans

We can also make introductions and assist in networking.

Let us make introductions to strategic partners for your business--For example partners in Supply Chain:

Materials
Toll Coating
Pouch materials

Or parties interested in

Licensing
Investing
Using your technology in their end products

Your technology may work well in the lab, but will it easily scale up to production volumes? Are you set to put together a pilot line? We can help. We have put together pilot lines, and we know the ins and outs of scaling up.

Have you identified who will purchase your technology, and have introductions been made to those groups? Again, Polaris has connections and can make introductions for you.

Patent writing and patent searches are laborious and can be tricky. Our consultants have experience in writing patents as well as in doing thorough patent searches to safeguard your technology.

Our scientists and chemists have served as expert witnesses in national cases. We perform blind studies for due diligence and present results for trial situations as well as for investors seeking proof of concept and proof of performance.

We excel in mix technologies and our set of uniquely designed coater equipment is adaptable to a variety of chemistries. Let our experts advise you on the possibilities of numerous mix and coat regimes.
Polaris can help meet your unique processing needs. We provide unique tooling design as well as engineering studies on welding, stacking, pouching, electrolyte fill and other processes for cell sizes ranging from 1 cm^2 to 30 cm^2.
We can assist in cell design and cell modeling. Our chemists have worked with a variety of chemical components and configurations. We can delve into what makes your particular cell technology work, and how to improve its performance.
Like patent searches, literature searches can be laborious and time consuming, but necessary. Having thorough technical information makes your ideas stronger. Polaris scientists ask the right questions, know the most useful keywords and authors, and get meaningful answers for your research.
We train your staff in our lab or yours. Polaris Battery labs offers tutorials in

Cell design
Mix techniques
Coat techniques
Cell assembly
Cell autopsy

We individualize the training to your specific technology.

Sourcing--Helping you find the quality materials and equipment you need.

Materials
