Battery Companies Fully Charged After Alliance

Trojan's trusted backup batteries could take on a new look and increased performance due to an alliance with the lithium ion battery engineering firm Pallidium.

Trojan Battery Company and Palladium Energy have announced a research alliance, promising to bring a new wave of lithium ion-based batteries to the market.

Trojan Battery is among the largest producers of deep-cycle lead acid batteries in the world, and Palladium Energy is well regarded for engineering lithium-based batteries. The companies project that combining Palladium’s lithium ion technology with Trojan’s distribution network may help accelerate the transition to a battery technology that better supports the smart grid by offering longer life and lighter weight for cheaper transportation.
