Portland startup Polaris Labs aims to shrink the time it takes to bring new batteries to market.
Polaris Labs is intended to appeal to U.S. and European-based lithium ion battery developers that are looking to accelerate the commercialization of new technologies for consumer, vehicle and industrial product applications. Those potential clients include battery manufacturers, material manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers, as well and national and university laboratories with developed battery concepts that have not yet fully optimized their recipes for targeted products.
In addition to providing basic lifecycle testing along with voltage and capacity testing, Polaris will also mix and coat electrodes on site, assemble cells and offer consulting services. As an ultimate goal, the lab will make connections between battery builders and manufacturers.
