will be the first to be fitted with the new storage technology by
EEStor, beginning this year. With this technology on board, a
vehicle could drive 500 miles on a charge that takes just five
minutes. However, the charging station would need to be on the
order of a power company substation. Otherwise, the charge
will take longer, limited to what the source is able to deliver.
CEDAR PARK, TEXAS, USA -- EEStor, which made a cannon-ball splash announcement
last year of its super-fast-charging, environmentally-friendly, long-enduring,
affordable battery technology, has emerged from a period of silence with news of
several company milestones.
The first EEStor, Inc. automated production line has been proven to meet the
requirements for precise chemical delivery, purity control, parameter control
In addition, EEStor, Inc. has completed the initial milestone of certifying
purification, concentration, and stability of all of its key production
chemicals -- most notably the attainment of 99.9994% purity of its barium
The independent 3rd party chemical analysis was completed by Southwest Research
Institute, Inc. located in San Antonio, Texas under contract with EEStor, Inc.
With these milestones completed, EEStor, Inc. is now in the process of producing
on its automated production line, composition-modified barium titanate powders
and is moving toward completing its next major milestone of powder
Once that is accomplished, the company will be ready for full throttle
EEStor technology is expected to surpass all existing battery technologies, with
its microsecond recharging and capacity for millions of 100% charge/discharge
cycles. The environmentally-friendly technology is affordable and designed for
versatile "racked and stacked" configurations.
Richard Weir, CEO and President of EEStor, Inc. said: "We are very proud of
the key advancements we have made over the past year."
In addition to the milestones identified, the Company has also been awarded a
critical patent related to their technology and has 12 additional patents
"We have built a state-of-the-art facility and have exceptional personnel
onboard", said Weir.
The first commercial application of the EESU is intended to be used in electric
vehicles under a technology agreement with ZENN Motors Company. EEStor, Inc.
remains on track to begin shipping production 15-kilowatt-hour Electrical Energy
Storage Units (EESU) to ZENN Motor Company in 2007 for use in their electric
The production EESU for ZENN Motor Company are expected to function to
specification in operating environments as severe as negative 20 to plus 65
degrees Celsius, will weigh less than 100 pounds, and will have ability to be
recharged in a matter of minutes.
