PowerGenix, a leading developer of high performance, rechargeable Nickel-Zinc (NiZn) batteries, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Asian battery manufacturer Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (ATL). ATL will become PowerGenix’s partner for the high-volume manufacturing of NiZn batteries for the worldwide start-stop Automotive and Industrial energy storage markets. (Earlier post.)
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.—Robert Kanode, CEO of PowerGenix
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.
