Moixa Energy, a revolutionary new company undertaking R&D and
investment in renewable energy and portable power, will present our new
battery technology – USBCELL and renewable energy vision, at
the US premier launch venue for new technology - Demo 2006 in San Diego
on 26th September.
Moixa Energy’s vision is to invent technologies that provide
consumers with better solutions for their mobile or home power
requirements that are more usable, economic and
environmental. The Company has attracted interest from
significant investors and has won funding awards from the DTI in the UK
and the Venture capital market.
The USBCell aims to help reduce the wasteful consumption of single use
batteries, and encourage the up-take of rechargeable batteries by
providing a technology that is easier to use, does not need adaptors or
cables, and takes advantage of an existing readily accessible low-level
power supply – the USB.
Moixa has created proprietary technology and ingenious design, to
enable a built in charger and circuitry to be encased within the AA
cell. “The fact that Microchip’s PIC
microcontrollers are being used in products like the USBCell provides
another good example of the proliferation of microcontrollers into
applications where electronics were not previously utilized,
said Steve Drehobl vice president of the Security, Microcontroller and
Technology Development Division at Microchip Technology Inc.
Mark Reynoso, Senior Vice President of Belkin, the global leader in
connectivity solutions, comments, “With over a
billion devices with USB ports in use around the world, the USBCell
promises a new and improved recharging solution, allowing people to
continuously use their wireless mice or game console, while eliminating
the need to buy another battery or find a charger.
The USBCell product roadmap includes a full range of battery formats,
including batteries for phones, cameras and other portable devices,
that can simply be recharged from a USB port. AA USBCells are available
to buy, initially in the UK but shortly to be available in the US and
EU, from www.usbcell.com , and will soon be available at a range of
leading high street retailers.
