NDB, Inc., creator of a universal, self-charging, proprietary nano diamond battery (NDB) that provides up to thousands of years of charge, announced completion of two successful Proofs of Concept tests of the NDB battery at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University. NDB’s battery achieved a breakthrough 40% charge, a significant improvement over commercial diamonds, which have only 15% charge collection efficiency. NDB also announced its first two beta customers, including a leader in nuclear fuel cycle products and services and a leading global aerospace, defense and security manufacturing company. Development of the first NDB commercial prototype battery is currently underway and will be available later this year.
NDB’s proprietary, universal, self-charging battery that provides a charge for the entire lifetime of a device or machine, with up to 28,000 years of battery life. Poised to completely transform the concept of energy, NDB can power devices and machines of any size, from aircraft and rockets to electric vehicles, hearing aids, smartphones, sensors and more, all with no carbon emissions. With nanotechnology rooted in industry-leading science, NDB has closed the energy supply and demand gap, solving one of the largest problems facing society today.
“Our team is bringing together leaders in the nanotechnology, nuclear science and diamond fields with military, academic and research backgrounds, and combining our unique mix of expertise has made it possible for us to crack the code in developing this groundbreaking, life-changing solution,” said Nima Golsharifi, CEO and co-founder of NDB. “Moreover, as members of society, we are extremely concerned about the welfare of the planet and are focused on lowering climate change to protect our planet for future generations. With the NDB battery, we have achieved a massive, groundbreaking, proprietary technological breakthrough of a battery that is emission-free, lasts thousands of years and only requires access to natural air in order to power devices.”
NDB’s two Proof of Concepts of the NDB battery were led by University of Cambridge physicist, 2019 Institute of Physics Isaac Newton Medal winner and father of semiconductors Professor Sir Michael Pepper. In both Proof of Concepts, NDB’s proprietary battery achieved a breakthrough of a 40% charge, which is a significant improvement over commercial diamonds, which have a 15% charge collection efficiency. This is a result of its proprietary nanodiamond surface treatment that actively extracts the electric charge from the diamond, allowing the battery to make use of significantly more power than any other battery before it.
Current major energy and power sources include fossil fuels, alternative and renewable energies, and lithium ion batteries, all which have their limitations. Unlike fossil fuels and lithium ion batteries, which use conflict-sourced materials, are not eco-friendly and are running out of supply, NDB creates energy from recycled waste, only requires access to natural air in order to power devices and machines and does not produce any emissions or destructive by-products that could harm the environment. While renewable energy sources such as solar panels are dependent on weather to generate energy, NDB is weather and climate independent. Also, unlike lithium ion batteries, which constantly need to be recharged and have a limited lifetime, NDB can operate without an external power source and its charge lasts the entire lifetime of a device or machine.
