Company Profile (ZapGo)
ZapGo Ltd (Zap&Go) is a high technology business founded in Oxford, UK, in 2013.
We have developed a solution to the problems encountered by all the current generation of appliances, devices and vehicles powered by lithium: slow charging. Called Carbon-IonTM, in contrast to Lithium-ion, this technology is based on carbon nano-materials including the 'wonder-material' graphene.
The technology and a growing patent portfolio is in part derived from Oxford University, and in part developed independently by Zap&Go's own scientists. The company is at the proof of concept stage with a number of prototype demonstrators. Our power module is due to enter the production phase in 2017.
