Firefly technology is an innovative material science that removes almost all limitations of current Lead Acid Battery Products. Carbon Foam is an Aero-Space Age material. It is a Composite made of high purity carbon carrying material. It’s used in nozzles of missiles and other energy absorbing applications. It’s bulk density is very low, below 0.04 g/cc and porosity is above 90%.
Carbon is not attacked by Acids or Alkalies and it’s highly conductive. Grid is made of Carbon Foam and Active Material is pasted on this grid. Carbon Foam has very high surface area for electro chemical reactions. Due to the inherent and amazing properties of Carbon and 3D Honeycomb structure of the Carbon Foam, it has thousands of micro pores which ultimately provides the following benefits to the Firefly Batteries:

|Positive Plates||Infrared images snapped at the end of a 5C (12 minute) discharge of both Firefly cell and a traditional cell.
More uniform temperature distribution means:
