About Sion Power

Sion Power advances the rechargeable battery sector with its Licerion technology®. Licerion® is the result of an advanced approach to lithium-metal batteries, allowing twice the energy to be stored in a battery of the same size and weight as a traditional lithium-ion battery. At up to 500 Wh/kg, Licerion batteries are mass produced in large format cells. Licerion batteries® thus open up the possibility of considerably increasing the performance of commercial and consumer electric vehicles. Sion Power is headquartered and operates in the United States. Visit the Sion Power website at
