LONDON, Aug. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The world, it seems,
is going electric. And in the UK, efforts to improve existing
sources of electrical energy and discover new ones is gaining
In the week when new Prime Minster Boris Johnson, in his
inaugural speech to parliament, reinforced his government's
commitment to putting the United
Kingdom back at the forefront of battery technology, a new
UK based company has launched a unique solution –
a self-recharging battery.
A British Power Revolution
E-Getx Limited, trading as ConFlow Power, formally launches a
low cost, environmentally benign, solid state
Drawing on such diverse disciplines as mechanical engineering,
electrochemistry and energetics, the company has developed a device
that produces a constant flow of energy. Unlike a traditional
battery, it doesn't store energy so much as harvest it, capturing
electrons from the surrounding air. The result is limitless
The device has undergone thousands of hours of testing,
cumulating in intensive testing within the last sixty
days. Observers report irrespective of how many times the
device was discharged, it never failed to recharge itself.
The product is now ready for commercialization. All parties
involved have agreed on the steps that need to be taken to bring
the product to market in a timely manner. And avoid the
mistakes that have been made by others in the past.
The British and Battery Energy
In 1980, John Goodenough
discovered lithium cobalt oxide and invented the technology for
lithium-ion batteries. The battery has driven much of the enormous
technological advancement in the late 20th and
early 21st Century; without it, there would be no
Apple, no Tesla. But back in the eighties, Sony commercialised the
technology, and the UK saw very little direct commercial benefit.
This trend continues today, in the race for dominance in the
electric vehicle market. The Telegraph, for which
Boris Johnson is a columnist, said
in May, "the UK is still very much in the slow lane in the race for
next generation automotive technology."
The British Government in 2019
Following significant investment in development of electric cars
since 2011, in 2017 the UK government announced an investment of
£246 million into battery research, and creation of the UK Battery
Industrialisation Centre in Coventry. The government has also spent £400
million on electric car charging infrastructure and announced
support for further development of electric cars at Jaguar Land
Rover (JLR), the UK's largest car manufacturer.
The Future is Here
Forty years after his discovery, and at the age of 97,
John Goodenough isn't finished. He
is working on a super-battery, one that will make electric cars
competitive with combustion, and that will economically store wind
and solar power.
But the path he has chosen involves one of the toughest problems
in battery science, which is how to make an anode out of pure
lithium or sodium metal. If it can be done, the resulting battery
would have 60% more energy than current lithium-ion cells. Over the
years, numerous scientists have tried and failed—it was lithium
metal, for instance, that kept setting Stan
Whittingham's lab on fire at Exxon in the 1970s.
Although Goodenough will not spell out his precise new idea, he
thinks he is on to something. And, because of his record, the field
knows that anyone would be foolhardy to bet against him. "He's very
astute still. His mind is still cranking away," says Thackeray, the
South African who invented manganese spinel under Goodenough, and
now is at the US's Argonne National Laboratory. "If there is going
to be a breakthrough, it will come from left-field. And John comes
from outside the box."
Outside the Box… in Britain
ConFlow's continuous flow solution to the battery conundrum
confirms Thackeray's belief. However, the solution doesn't involve
lithium, and is inexpensive and inexhaustible. It avails
itself of the latest findings in Nano-technology and results in a
battery/generator-like device that is self-renewing.
Left field. Out of the box. And British.
And this time, the infrastructure is in place to ensure success,
through government support for the market, and a new financial
A British Financial Revolution
It's wholly appropriate that such a unique and revolutionary
technology should be launching on a new and revolutionary financial
During the testing period, ConFlow's inventor and his team have
been working closely with ILOCX, addressing questions and providing
information that has allowed ConFlow's management to conclude that
the device actually works and has the potential to change the way
power is generated and distributed.
ILOCX is a British-based platform that allows companies to
raise non-equity capital through the sale of Initial License
Offerings ("ILOs"). This is a new and unique revenue-based method
to raise capital, promote and sell products and services, and to
receive royalties based on a company's gross revenue.
ILOCX has funded all 40 companies so far that have listed via
its PreILO platform, and has 28 companies on its main board,
offering some $300 million in
transactions. In addition, ILOCX has a Crypto Currency platform
at www.ILOcrypto.com that accepts most recognised Crypto
Currency or ALT coins as payment for an ILO.
ILOCX facilitates ConFlow Power's growth strategy, which is
based on fast, safe and secure delivery and application of its
unique technology, potentially resulting in market domination.
As part of an earlier acquisition of the technology, IP and
patents, "E-Getx Limited" and ILOCX entered into an agreement
to accelerate the ConFlow Power device to market using a
combination of underwriting, acquisition and strategy. This
includes a rigorous schedule for continued testing, databasing and
regulating the ConFlow Power technology, making it fully ready for
ConFlow Power's listing on PreILO is a stepping stone to
the next level. PreILO speeds the company into revenue-ready
status. Then, as agreed upon, the company will elevate its listing
to the main ILOCX board.
ConFlow Power has developed a battery/generator that enlists
various advanced technologies to capture electrons from the ambient
air, to create a totally self-renewing power source; the name
ConFlow representing a 'Continuous Flow'. ConFlow Power closely
resembles a solid-state battery in terms of size and design,
however, it performs like an electrical generator…without the
moving parts associated with a generator. The ConFlow
Battery/Generator meets a wide variety of applications to in such
diverse fields as tele-communications, transportation, emergency
power, heating/cooling, construction, medical science and personal
electronics. It also has implications for heavy industry.
ConFlow Power intends to use GCLs (Global Conditional Licensing)
to hasten introduction and adoption of its
technology. Licensees will have a wide footprint and a strong
presence in a particular market segment.
The ILOCX is the Initial License Offering Contract
Exchange, a platform where innovative companies can list
License Offerings. Buyers of these licenses agree to participate in
the company's growth by promoting them on social media all the way
to becoming an affiliate. ILOs are a truly Collaborative Capital
partnership blending a Collaborative Marketing concept that reaches
more people than is possible under any other method. Unique
marketing campaigns are generated by 1000s of ILOers that by nature
must reach more niche groups, as they themselves are niche. The ILO
structure, created by ILOCX, completely bridges the gap between
Capital and Company. There is no one else involved. ILOs are
licensing contracts that permit the ILOer to promote the company's
approved information to a wide audience for the purpose of
perpetuating sales. This system drives sales revenue and then
rewards it on both sides. ILOers get a percentage of the company's
gross revenue, similar to a commission, for their promoting
activity. This lasts for a 3-year term, after which the company
elects to either roll the license again, buy it back, or
convert it to equity in the case of a stock market listing.
