Announcing TENIX™

Ten-Nine Technologies’ patented TENIX nano-additives make traditional batteries last up to two times longer.

Graph of Pressed Cathode Batteries with TENIX

TENIX™ wins in a cell-to-cell comparison of lithium primary batteries. A battery with a small percentage of TENIX™ mixed with traditional cathode material lasts twice as long as a major manufacturer’s battery purchased off the shelf. The challenging high-drain test shown here highlights the TENIX™ power performance as well. Lithium batteries like these—while small—are the preferred choice for many Internet of Things applications.


Alkaline batteries have been powering our lives since the 1950s. Think they can’t be improved? Think again. In electrode-to-electrode results a small percentage of TENIX™ significantly improves the performance of a traditional alkaline cathode. The next stage of optimization will give us cell-to-cell comparisons for TENIX™—boosted alkaline cells, and we’ll be one step closer to improving this 1950s tech that still powers our game controllers.

Rechargeable batteries are the real prize, and they need to both last longer and cost less. These material-to-material tests show how we are targeting affordable and cobalt-free cathode materials like LFP, LTO, and LMO in combination with small percentages of TENIX™ to give the additional capacity—which translates to energy or range—that will make them successful EV solutions. We are currently working on understanding the cyclability of these blends.


Cell-to-cell, material-to-material…why does Ten-Nine specify what kind of test we’re using? Because evaluating the claims of new battery technology depends upon understanding the testing environment, and the timelines for testing are long. Material evaluations are the first to be made, then the electrode is optimized for parameters like density and thickness, and finally the anode/cathode/electrolyte balance of the full cell design is developed and tested. This final stage allows for direct comparisons with commercial cells currently on the market. At Ten-Nine Tech, we are open about our testing progress and our readiness for market entry. And we welcome questions about our data.
