Zinc Matrix Power Offers New Batteries, Wins Intel's Award

Zinc Matrix Power, developer of new, rechargeable battery technology based on silver, zinc and water, has won Intel’s “Technology Innovation Accelerated” (TIA) Award in the Mobility category, presented during the Intel Developers Forum 2006 Conference, held September 26 – 28, 2006 in San Francisco.

Zinc Matrix Power won the award based upon its demonstration at IDF of a notebook computer using its new silver-zinc rechargeable battery technology. The Intel TIA Awards recognize the most significant technological innovation presented during IDF, categorized in six areas: mobility, digital home, digital office, storage, data center, and technology and research.

Zinc Matrix Power’s technology contains no lithium or flammable liquids and is said to be free from the problems of thermal runaway, fire and danger of explosion. The batteries are also free from the regulations that limit the size of lithium-containing batteries on airplanes. In addition, the company states that a notebook PC battery pack using ZMP cells can be expected to provide longer run-time than equivalent Li-Ion based battery packs.

In addition to addressing the needs of notebook computer and cell phone manufacturers, Zinc Matrix Power rechargeable battery technology has applications for the military, government, retail, and broadcast (mobile TV) markets.

Zinc Matrix Power batteries will be available to device manufacturers for evaluation and testing in early 2007.
