      New Report Highlights Ener1 Li-ion Electrodes

      Ener1, Inc. recently announced that the results of an independent test of
      nanostructured, lithium-ion (Li-ion) electrodes developed by Ener1 and joint
      venture company ENERSTRUCT, Inc. has been published in the June 21, 2004
      issue of Japanese trade publication Nikkei Electronics.

      According to Ener1, the test, conducted by Yamagata University researchers,
      demonstrates that the electrodes produced using the company's vapor
      deposition nanotechnology "can enable [Li-ion] batteries to discharge at a
      rate of over 100C with a 76 percent capacity," with data indicating that the
      new electrode technology can also achieve a "300C discharge rate with 45
      percent capacity."

      Ener1 said the publication's report also finds that the electrodes -- which
      are "cost effective to produce" as they do not require any binder agents or
      additives -- have discharge rates 20 times higher than current Li-ion
      batteries, as well as "very strong" adhesion.

      Ener1 noted that a translated English summary of the Nikkei Electronics
      article can be viewed at the company's website.
