Thermal runaway shield acts as a heat sink during normal lithium-ion battery pack operation but also prevents thermal runaway propagation, which is a serious concern for aerospace and defense customers and electric vehicle manufacturers.
A vaporizing thermal capacitor that provides passive prevention of thermal runaway propagation (TRP) in lithium-ion battery packs.
Thermal runaway can occur spontaneously in a Li-ion cell due to a short.
This can trigger an explosive release of electric energy that ruptures the end cap resulting in a flare and combustion of cell materials.
Released heat drives the triggered cell temperatures to > 500°C, causing a dramatic increase in neighboring cell temperatures. Temperatures above the critical 130°C greatly increase the chance for a short in adjacent cells and result in TRP. This product keeps neighboring cell temperatures from rising above 100°C (well below the 130°C threshold) and prevents TRP.
Effective passive thermal management solutions for battery packs ranging from 10 to 4,000 cells are in demand.
This is especially the case with high-performance applications that draw more power from the battery pack, which can be the case with E-Mobility applications.
The company's US-designed, NASA-tested design is a very light-weight, durable heat sink that keeps lithium ion batteries cooler and safer.
A perfect fit for an automotive industry (electric vehicles) that demands safe and reliable, light-weight battery management solutions.

And as I mentioned previously, KULR has several potential catalysts that could spark vertical movement near term. Here's what to take into account.
No. 1 KULR Potential Catalyst - $7.00 Price Target Provides Over 400% Potential Upside From 12/21's Close
Analyst Theodore R. O’Neill of Litchfield Hills Research reiterated a buy rating and slapped KULR with a $7.00 price target back in August of 2022.
Here are some key highlights from his updated report:
One-cent miss to EPS but record revenue. KULR reported 3Q22 revenue and an EPS loss of $1.4MM and $0.05, respectively. Consensus 3Q22 revenue and EPS loss expectations were $0.9M and $0.04, respectively. The $0.01 EPS variance was due to lower margins and higher non-operating expenses, partially offset by lower operating expenses and higher sales.
Batting well above its weight. The company reported it has over 300 customers in the current quarter, with some of the world’s largest industrial and commercial companies such as Lockheed Martin (LMT-NR), Ball Aerospace, SAFT Group, General Motors (GM-NR), Cirba Solutions, Redwood Materials, Leidos Holdings (LDOS-NR), Meta Platforms (META-NR), Viridi Parente and BOSCH. KULR products protect and solve complex, real-world issues of heat, vibration, and safety.
Well capitalized. The company ended the quarter with $16.2MM of cash.
We are updating our estimates to include the results in the quarter, which increases our 2022 revenue to $3.4MM from $2.7MM. The 2022 EPS loss is unchanged at $0.19. For 2023, our revenue and EPS estimates are unchanged.
Although the shares trade above peer averages, it has held a premium for a considerable time and based on discounted future earnings, we feel the shares are undervalued.

No. 4 KULR Potential Catalyst - With Technicals Leaning Oversold, A Possible Healthy Reversal Looms
As of 4:30PM EST Wednesday, Barchart was reporting this profile to have several oversold leaning technicals.
These technicals could be signaling a healthy reversal in the near term.
Here's the definition of a "reversal" from Investopedia:
"A reversal is a change in the price direction of an asset. A reversal can occur to the upside or downside. Following an uptrend, a reversal would be to the downside. Following a downtrend, a reversal would be to the upside. Reversals are based on overall price direction and are not typically based on one or two periods/bars on a chart."
Now, here are some key technicals (as of 4:30PM EST Wednesday) that could signal KULR to be leaning oversold and on the verge of a potential reversal.
- 9-Day Relative Strength Index: 33.10%
- 14-Day Relative Strength Index: 36.30%
When these numbers drop down to the 30% range and lower, they can be viewed as being in oversold territory. While in this territory, they can paint the picture of a profile that is undervalued.
- 14-Day Raw Stochastic: 14.62%
- 14-Day Williams %R: 85.38%
As the Raw Stochastic nears the 10% range and lower and the Williams %R nears the 90% range or higher, these technical indicators may also be viewed as oversold and undervalued.
Keep an eye on these technicals closely.
