Teknomadix Logo

We are a tech start-up in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Our current mission is to synthesize classic automobile designs with cutting edge electric motor and battery technology.

Teknomadix designs all electric drivetrains for installation in classic forms of auto-mobility. We believe that the fastest way to the all electric future of mobility is to retrofit existing, proven vehicle chassis designs with battery powered electric drivetrains. Come back soon to learn more about us and our mission as we grow!

Simplicity = Reliability. One reason we love electric motors is their simplistic design. Did you know a standard internal combustion engine has over 5,000 separate moving parts?! All those parts present a lot of opportunities for failures and inefficiency. Our electric motors only have 1 major moving part. Simple!

Lithium power. When a lithium battery is charged and discharged once, it is called a cycle. Lithium battery capacity degrades as the cycle numbers increase. Battery cycle life is measured in cycles, with an industry standard of cycles to 80% capacity often used as a benchmark. We use high longevity lithium battery technology in all the traction power systems we design. From a minimum of 4,000 cycles to 80% capacity, with our longest life batteries lasting upwards of 80,000 cycles to 80%.

Understanding battery capacity and energyMay 01, 2019

Rating capacity and C-rate C-rate is used to scale the charge and discharge current of a battery. For a given capacity, C-rate is a measure that indicate at what current a battery is charged and discharged to reach its defined capacity. Charging at a 1C rate, loads a battery that is rated at say – 1000Ah at 1000-Amps during one hour. To break that down; at the end of 1 hour at a 1C charge…
