This partnership marks a turning point for PowerGenix, Stop-Start automotive and other commercial markets that are searching for a more capable lead-acid battery replacement. ATL’s ability to manufacture Nickel-Zinc batteries in high volume is the first step toward NiZn widespread adoption in world markets.

ATL, based in Hong Kong, is a leader in the design, manufacture, sales and marketing of rechargeable lithium polymer battery cells and related battery packs and systems. The company’s products are widely used in laptop computers, cell phones, digital media players, digital cameras, cordless tools and other consumer electronics products. In addition, ATL is expanding into the electrical vehicle and electrical energy storage markets.

ATL, whose mission is to become a premier solution provider for green energy storage, was the first Chinese manufacturer to produce high quality lithium polymer batteries in large volumes. ATL’s partnership with PowerGenix will enable it to produce NiZn cells, cell components and battery modules for Stop-Start vehicles, and other commercial applications.
