each 12-inch silicon wafer consists of some 36 million of these vertical “micro-batteries” machined into the wafer’s surface. Which, as the explainer video argues, decreases the charge time of the macro-battery (made up of many micro-batteries) as well as the manufacturing cost of the technology, as it’s based on already scaled-up silicon fabrication processes used in computer chip manufacturing today
Apparently this makes it easy to recycle. No dendrites.
XNRGI has “has already built more than 600 working samples (8 billion micro-batteries) for a wide range of clients.
