ZapGo President to Present at 34th Annual International Battery Seminar & Exhibit on March 23 in Fort Lauderdale


Charles Resnick, President of US Operations at ZapGo Inc., a division of ZapGo Ltd, will present a talk titled “Replacing Lithium-Ion Batteries in Consumer Applications” at the 34th Annual International Battery Seminar & Exhibit at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Thursday, March 23 at 3:35 PM ET.

Mr. Resnick will discuss the benefits of the Zap&Go Carbon-Ion™ cell composed of carbon, aluminum and water-based aqueous materials—properties that are completely safe, recyclable and quick charging. Unlike Li-ion, which is a battery and works by an electrochemical reaction, the Zap&Go C-Ion cells can last through more charge/discharge cycles because there is no electrochemistry to wear out and be fully charged in under five minutes. As such, the Zap&Go Carbon-Ion™ cell has the potential to replace lithium-ion batteries in consumer applications and is scheduled to be embedded in several products on the market by the end of 2017. ZapGo has already developed a powerbank mobile charger, an 18-volt hand drill, an electric scooter and a cleaner, all of which can be charged in less than five minutes and can be shipped with none of the restrictions that apply to Li-ion.

“The limitations of Li-ion battery technology are becoming more apparent daily. As such, there is an immediate need for viable new solutions that are not only extremely safe but also improve upon the features that consumers demand, such as fast recharge time, in a wide range of products,” Mr. Resnick said. “In my talk, I look forward to spotlighting the fact that a fresh strategy—Carbon-Ion™ technology—has now moved beyond the development/lab stage and has already been incorporated into an array of working devices that are being prepared for commercialization.”

Founded in 1983, the International Battery Seminar & Exhibit has established itself as the premier event showcasing the state of the art of worldwide energy storage technology developments for consumer, automotive, military and industrial applications. Key thought leaders will assemble to not only provide broad perspectives, but also informed insights into significant advances in materials, product development, manufacturing and application for all battery systems and enabling technologies. As the longest-running annual battery industry event in the world, this meeting has always been the preferred venue to announce significant developments and new products, and to showcase the most advanced battery technology.
