About Enovix

Enovix has built a next-generation lithium-ion battery that significantly increases energy density and maintains high cycle life. Our patented 3D cell architecture enables a high-capacity silicon anode to increase energy density by 40% to over 100%, depending on cell size. And it keeps the anode stack under high pressure to prevent silicon particle pulverization for full depth-of-charge cycle life over 600. We’re backed by strategic relationships with Intel, Qualcomm, and Cypress and over $200 million in venture, strategic, and private funding. We’ve been awarded over 70 patents and have over 40 more pending that will create sustainable enterprise value and provide a competitive barrier for years.
