Mark Gresser, Wildcat's CEO, added "CM4's ability to more than double the energy of today's batteries offers application engineers an opportunity to either reduce the size of batteries without affecting run time or to maintain today's form factor and significantly increase cell energy. Either way, the higher energy afforded by CM4 will be valuable for today's applications, and enable the rapid development of new applications."
