ZapGo, based at Harwell, Oxford, was a UK-based company founded in September 2013. The Company developed ultra-fast charge graphene-enhanced supercapacitors.
ZapGo's supercapacitors are based on a combination of carbon nanotubes and graphene materials, and a proprietary electrolyte. The company developed several generations of its supercapacitor and in 2017 aimed to start commercializing its first products. The company seems no longer to be in business.
In early 2017 Zap & Go announced it has been awarded with a $1.6 million USD grant from the European Union to perfect the prototype cordless tools (vacuum cleaners, power drills and others) powered by its fast-charging graphene supercapacitors. In 2017, the company also announced that it has received commitments from major OEMs in joint development agreements, and it launched an equity crowdfunding campaign with aims to raise £2 million.
