Ensurge Micropower (OSE: ENSU, and OTCIQ: ENMPY), a leading provider of solid-state lithium microbatteries for a new generation of wearables and IoT devices today announced the signing of it´s first agreement with a strategic partner as the initial step in our engagement. Ensurge plans to provide the strategic partner, a large multinational consumer devices leader, with samples of its Ensurge microbattery unit cells for evaluation. Ensurge is completing the manufacturing of these unit cell samples now and will ship them by end of next week.
"This is the first step in our strategic partnership initiative aimed at accelerating the adoption and proliferation of Ensurge technology across increasing use cases and volumes," said Kevin Barber, Ensurge Chief Executive Officer. "These engagements are driven by the differentiated core cell performance benefits of Ensurge's solid state microbattery including energy density, faster charging, high pulse discharge, flexibility and more. These sophisticated technology companies are looking to leverage Ensurge's core technology while bringing their own advanced technology to together to create unique batteries and solutions that enable next generation devices." Barber added.
Ensurge is also in discussions with three additional potential strategic partners, with a pipeline of several more, who have interest in utilizing Ensurge solid state lithium battery technology in new formats and applications, that go beyond Ensurge's current market focus, as well as applying it to existing applications within the billion-unit wearables, hearables and connected sensors markets. These strategic partners are technology companies with a breadth of products and technologies in electronic devices, semiconductors, and batteries. Ensurge expects to explore a range of possible strategic options with the partners including but not limited to licensing of the Ensurge technology, joint development efforts, and equity investment.
