Johnson Battery Technologies (JBT) has developed a Solid-State battery technology, which will enable wireless and remote applications not previously possible due to the volatility of current batteries at high temperatures. Now JBT is ready to partner with industry and government customers to bring the batteries to the marketplace in a major, scalable way.
Chances are you’ve heard of the Super Soaker – the colorful water gun that lets you power spray just about anyone in your path. Since it debuted in the early 90s, it’s generated more than $1 billion in global sales. The man who invented the Super Soaker is Lonnie Johnson. He’s lived in Atlanta for the last few decades and holds over 100 patents for other projects.
Lonnie Johnson is trying to create more energy, and do it with clean sources. He envisions an engine that could convert heat to energy. Lonnie tells us that the best energy source is the sun, but cost effective technology to convert the sun to energy does not yet exist. In his SolveForX talk, Heat Direct to Electric Energy, Johnson gives us his best current solution.
Our team has been hard at work on the JTEC, my invention that turns heat into electricity. I am very excited about JTEC’s potential and am grateful that other people see that too!
