ZapGo, based at Harwell, Oxford, is a UK-based company founded in September 2013. The Company develops 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 aims to start commercializing its first products.
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. The company says that it has received commitments from major OEMs in joint development agreements.
