New Resource Gives Developers the Tools Needed to Evaluate ZPower Rechargeable

Batteries for Future Product Designs

CAMARILLO, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZPower has released a new

Product Development Kit to help product designers evaluate its rechargeable,

silver-zinc battery technology for upcoming product designs for hearing

instruments, medical devices, wearable computing and other applications.

ZPower rechargeable silver-zinc batteries are better than traditional nickel

metal-hydride rechargeable batteries because they deliver up to three times the

energy in both XR41/312 and XR48/13 battery sizes. Silver-zinc technology also

has significant energy density advantages over lithium-ion microbatteries while

operating at a lower voltage.

"We want to encourage designers and engineers across many industries to consider

ZPower microbatteries for their next design," said Troy Renken, Vice President

of Product Planning and Electronics at ZPower. "Our batteries are superior in

the areas of performance and environmental sustainability, and our design

services make it easy for developers to test and implement this game changing

battery technology." The Product Development Kit is available to product

designers, engineers and developers for applications in any industry that would

benefit from a high energy density rechargeable microbattery.

The ZPower Product Development Kit includes:

* Two batteries - size XR41/312 or XR48/13

* Z125 hybrid regulator evaluation board and data sheet

* Charger system

The new Product Development Kit is part of ZPower's portfolio of Design Services

which includes power management and charger design support. In order to rapidly

expand the adoption of silver-zinc batteries, the company has developed

expertise in voltage regulation ICs, power management ICs, charger electronics

and control algorithms.

Designed and manufactured in California, USA, ZPower batteries are the first new

rechargeable battery technology for portable electronics to be launched since

lithium-ion was introduced in the 1990s.
