The insatiable demand for portable power, from handheld electronics to electric vehicles, continues to drive materials innovations for Lithium-Ion Batteries. Lifetime and maximum capacity of lithium-ion batteries depend decisively on the thermal management system used – both in terms of cooling and heating.
The companys core technology is a NASA co-developed, vertically aligned carbon fiber thermal interface material that is lighter, more flexible, and more efficient than traditional passive cooling solutions for electronics and batteries. Our superior solutions can be designed to fit almost any power or electronic configuration, including extremely demanding spaces.
KULR plans to expand its technology portfolio from space qualified battery safety and thermal management technology to integrated hardware and software battery management systems and vehicle telematics systems. KULR will serve customers with technologies that measure performance, detect mobility challenges and deliver a safer and more energy-efficient product to the end user.
The company’s thermal management technologies have served the high-caliber, high-performance space industry. Big changes are occurring in the automotive and broad transportation industries with the electrification of vehicles, buses, bikes, and scooters. KULR space qualified technologies are a perfect fit for next-generation E-Mobility segments. Its solutions can keep onboard electronics and battery systems cooler and safer, while also providing great weight savings, which translates into improved energy efficiency. The company also aim to serve AI/Cloud computing and 5G communications technologies, which are also important to the world of E-Mobility.
KULR’S SOLUTION IS THE LIGHTEST WEIGHT BATTERY HEAT SINK OPTION NASA HAS EVALUATED TO DATE, THAT HAS EXCELLENT PROMISE TO PREVENT THERMAL RUNAWAY PROPAGATION WITH THE HIGHEST ENERGY DENSITY COTS LI-ION CELL DESIGNS. TO DATE, NASA HAS NOT FOUND A DESIGN SOLUTION WITH AS MUCH PROMISE FOR PREVENTING LI-ION BATTERY TRP WITH AS POSITIVE TEMPERATURE MARGINS ON THE ADJACENT CELLS WHILE ALSO BEING VERY LIGHTWEIGHT.

KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTCQB:KULR) recently announced that it has entered into a legally binding MOU (memorandum of understanding) with a leading global electronics component and battery manufacturer (the “Partner”), which is a leading supplier of a key electrical component in smartphones such as the Apple iPhone, to pursue business relationships building Internal Short Circuit (ISC) battery testing technology and for KULR to license its passive propagation resistant Thermal Runaway Shield (TRS) technology to the Partner in a commercial phase.
“We are proud to work with a leading innovator, whose technology is trusted by globally recognized brands. Through this partnership, we will share our breakthrough ISC and TRS technologies to make our Partner’s batteries safer and more efficient for both commercial and consumer application,” said Michael Mo, CEO of KULR. “Our Partner’s reputation in the world of rechargeable batteries is unparalleled, and we look forward to advance its research into battery reliability and safety.”
Under the agreement, KULR will provide its ISC devices for making ISC trigger cells based on Partner’s battery portfolio. KULR will also license its passive propagation resistant (PPR) technology portfolio and intellectual property to the Partner in order to help build and modify the TRS technology for Partner’s battery applications, which include energy storage, electric mobility, consumer electronics, and mobile devices among others.
