Ensurge Micropower (OSE: ENSU, and OTCIQ: ENMPY), today announced it has shipped samples of its microbattery unit cells per the terms of a previously announcement agreement with a customer that is a leader and innovator in the digital health market. The sample shipments are the first step toward taking a customized solid-state microbattery into full production for the customer, who is making several milestone-based payments to Ensurge.
"We are pleased to have achieved this major milestone in our customer engagement, and especially that our microbattery has met the company's fast- charging requirements for its next-generation products," said Kevin Barber, Ensurge Chief Executive Officer. "Our microbattery will enable this customer to create products with features that would be impossible to offer without this level of charging performance. They also meet the customer's need for flexible form factors and ability to support high current draw and wider temperature range."
Devices used for digital health, fitness and remote patient monitoring services have unique power requirements that cannot be met with Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) coin cell batteries. In contrast, Ensurge solid-state microbatteries can achieve double to triple the charging rate of the fastest-charging Li-ion-based designs.
