Presentation Summary

• London Graphene is developing a new type of charger for the business traveller, based on graphene supercapacitors.
• In 2013 London Graphene took an option to license two patents developed at the Materials Science faculty at the University of Oxford to produce very high quality graphene.
• Also in 2013, London Graphene won a UK Government Technology Strategy Board (TSB) grant to investigate the market for graphene based supercapacitors. This market study help define a market opportunity for graphene based supercapacitors in an early market energy storage application.
• London Graphene plans to launch its first product in 2015.

Company Profile (ZapGo)

ZapGo logo
ZapGo Ltd (ZapGo) 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-Ion, 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. Our power module is due to enter the production phase in 2018.
