Building the World's Best Rechargeable Microbattery.
Founded on NASA Science, Evolved to Rechargeability.
In the 1960s, NASA developed silver-zinc batteries for use in the Apollo program; they were powerful and posed no danger of combustion. But they had too short of a cycle life for commercial application. ZPower was founded in 1996 for one specific purpose: To unlock the full potential of this powerful chemistry and help proliferate the world with a better battery technology. Weve made significant strides — and today silver-zinc stands as the first viable alternative miniature battery power option since Li-ion appeared in the 1990s.
A Company Powered by Innovation.
From the outset, our company was guided by a spirit of innovation. The early silver-zinc batteries, while showing great potential, were a long way from meeting the size, power and rechargeability requirements of todays manufacturers. Along the way, weve written more than 100 patents on advances, changes and breakthroughs that weve introduced. The result? Silver-zinc microbatteries are emerging as a unique and superior solution for powering an array of devices, from hearing aids to wearables and a broad range of consumer, medical and military devices.
Our Difference Goes Beyond the Chemistry.
Were proud of the innovation weve brought to silver-zinc rechargeable microbatteries. But we also take an innovative approach to working with clients. As a true engineering partner, we go beyond providing off-the-shelf button cells. We work with you to design batteries that fit your size and power specifications, and that also incorporate improvements and modifications that enable you to design more innovative products. Our goal is to serve you not just by offering better batteries, but by also being a better battery supplier.
