When it comes to Equestrian Safety there was only one choice, ZPower
ZPower, the world’s only developer of rechargeable silver-zinc microbatteries, announced a partnership today with American Equus. American Equus, a company known for its innovation of every day equestrian products, chose ZPower batteries for a forthcoming line of smart devices that are planned to launch later this year.
When devices are designed to be worn and come in direct contact with horses and the barn environment, small size and safety are critical. ZPower silver-zinc microbatteries offer the highest energy density for their size, while their water-based chemistry offers zero danger of thermal runaway and their low voltage reduces the risks from ingestion.
“We chose ZPower batteries for their unparalleled performance and because, unlike li-ion batteries, they are non-flammable, and safer if ingested,” said David Shano, founder and CEO of American Equus. “Our new devices will revolutionize the well-being of horse and rider, so safety was a top priority when we evaluated potential power sources.”
“Our batteries are uniquely suited for applications that are worn; ZPower is certified to manufacture medical devices and our batteries are currently used in medical wearables,” said Glynne Townsend, President and CEO of ZPower. “We are proud that American Equus chose our battery technology for its new range of devices, and we look forward to supporting American Equus through its product development and market launch.”
