In Light of Recent Lithium-Ion Battery Fires, ZPower Reiterates Safety of Silver-Zinc Chemistry

In light of a massive September 1, 2016, cell phone recall, which was necessitated by the explosion of thirty-five lithium-ion cell phone batteries, ZPower, the world’s only developer of rechargeable, silver-zinc miniature batteries, wants to remind its customers that ZPower batteries are 100% non-flammable and non-toxic. They are one of the safest options on the market for wearables and medical device technologies.

“In devices such as hearing aids, which are worn on the body, safety is everything. Our silver-zinc chemistry is inherently stable and safe,” said ZPower Vice President of Business Development Barry Freeman, Ph.D. “We want to take this opportunity to make absolutely clear the distinction between our battery technology, which is water-based and non-flammable, and other battery technologies, such as lithium ion, which have the potential to explode or catch fire.”

Due to its high energy density, silver-zinc battery chemistry has been used by NASA and the military for decades. Through twenty years of patent-protected research, ZPower has harnessed this energy into a rechargeable battery solution for hearing aids and other small electronics, wearables and medical devices. As one of the safest battery technologies available, ZPower batteries are perfect for applications requiring long-lasting power, rechargeability, flexibility and safety.
