RCA Batteries now represents four types of battery cells/products: The Apollo Ultra, a battery pack for everyday use, which Forbes has proclaimed as "Eye-Poppingly Fast." Two types of cylindrical cells; a 18650 Graphene Lithium battery cell and a 21700 Graphene Lithium battery cell, both intended for commercial customers in several sectors.  Finally, the company plans to begin small volume production of its graphene enhanced Solid-State Batteries in Q2 2022 with the goal to bring main scale production in 2023.

All the Company's cylindrical graphene enhanced batteries cells boast charging rates of least 2C and can go as high as 8C depending on the customer's application needs.  These speeds are between double and twenty times faster than the traditional Lithium battery cell can charge at.   The company's graphene solid-state battery can charge at rates up to 30C.  These batteries also have industry-leading discharge rates for more efficient energy usage and power distribution.   

Sam Gong, President of Elecjet (and now RCA Batteries) commented: "Our Graphene solid-state technology will help us improve energy density by about 10% compared to some of the most energy-dense batteries on the market, and upwards of 80%+ compared to some applications.  Elecjet prides itself on not just boasting about what we can do in a lab, but what we can produce on a large commercially viable scale.  We're looking forward to getting these batteries in our customer's products throughout 2022."

Kent B. Wilson, Alpine 4 CEO, had this to say: "RCA Batteries was envisioned long before we closed on our subsidiary RCA Commercial in early December 2021.  The goal was to enhance the amazing capabilities of the Elecjet family of graphene-enhanced batteries and attach it to a well-known name in the electronics industry.  The merits of this joint venture are immense.  RCA Batteries with its graphene enhanced battery cells, the manufacturing power of our subsidiaries RCA Commercial and Quality Circuit Assembly, will allow RCA Batteries the ability to start producing best in class battery cells for varying applications in the near future.  The goal is to bring full manufacturing to the United States by Q4 2023. From a market perspective, our sights are set on the ESS (energy storage systems) market, including power walls, battery cells for EV's, and various other commercial applications, as well as the electrification of Vayu Aerospace's drones, including the newest fleet of drones under development.

About RCA Commercial Electronics: RCA Commercial Electronics is the continuance of the legacy of the US-based conglomerate RCA Corporation which dominated the electronics industry of the 20th century.  RCA Commercial acquired the rights to the RCA name brand in 2004 and the LG lighting division to which it acquired the name brand and intellectual property in 2016. The RCA Corporation was a major American electronics company, which was founded as the Radio Corporation of America in 1919. It was initially a patent trust owned by General Electric (GE), Westinghouse, AT&T Corporation, and United Fruit Company. But in 1932, RCA became an independent company, and this storied American company began.
