Nuvvon Abolishes the Myth that Solid Polymer Electrolytes Have Poor Ionic Conductivity at Room Temperature

It is generally assumed that solid polymer electrolytes have poor ionic conductivity at room temperature. Nuvvon has turned this notion on its head. Third-party verified data of their unique solid polymer electrolytes is presented to prove it. Solid-state battery companies developing oxide and sulfide products suggest that solid polymer electrolytes have struggled with achieving the necessary ionic conductivity at room temperature. One attempted workaround is to increase the operating temperature, which is sub-optimal as it requires external heating. Another is the addition of liquid plasticizers, such as ionic liquids, to increase conductivity. But the amount of liquid plasticizer required for
