OXIS is developing Li-S chemistry, and is currently building pilot manufacturing facilities. The commercialisation scale up plan is to build cells in these pilot facilities and prove them in a number of applications.

Full scale production will be undertaken by a licensee to allow rapid and cost effective production ramp up. Our product range currently includes:

Cell Components

OXIS is one of the few companies in the world to develop all 3 cell components: The cathode, the anode, and the electrolyte, and this constitutes a major technological advantage in the market
These 3 components are at the core of all cell and battery systems. Most competitors in the battery space develop one or two of these components.

OXIS active material development focuses on IP protected Electrolyte and Cathode. Our strategic partners receive the active material for testing and co-development. The cell components are sold to cell manufacturers under license.
Our first non-exclusive partner in this venture is GP batteries.

  • 500Wh/kg targeted for 2019
  • Better specific energy
  • Performance (C-rates)
  • Lower capacity fadeElectrolyte
  • Safety
  • Temperature range
  • Cyclability
  • Cycle Life (Stable SEI-formation)
  • Volumetric energy density
  • Safety
  • Performance (C-rates)

Standard Pouch Cell

OXIS is developing a range of standard Lithium Sulfur pouch cells. Large quantity manufacture is handled by our world-class licencees, including GP Batteries, with small quantities available from the UK for product development.

  • Nominal voltage: 2.1 V
  • Typical capacity: 10 – 35 Ah
  • Specific Energy: Up to 400 Wh/kg

The specific energy of the pouch cells is improving rapidly and we expect 400 Wh/kg in production pouch cell in 2017, and 500 Wh/kg in 2019. Please see the following datasheets for more information on the current cell performance both today and for the next 4 years:

  • Ultralight Cell – high gravimetric energy density, low temperature tolerance, lightest of OXIS cell technologies
  • Longlife Cell – first generation, high cycles life, most developed and established OXIS cell technology

Customized Cell

At OXIS Energy we understand that a standard cell might not suit everybody’s requirements. Therefore, our Li-S technology can be adapted to meet the performance and design optimised for the desired specific application.


If you require a battery, OXIS can work with its battery partners to develop solutions for a range of applications. Please see our Partners tab for more information on our battery partners.

Check out the Application page to read more about the batteries under development. These include a portable soldier battery, an electric vehicle battery and an Energy Storage battery (shown right).
