NEW POWER TECHNOLOGY BATTERY EXPECTED TO IMPACT
BATTERY INDUSTRY FUTURE:
The California Air Resources Board said, during the week of September 12,
2000, that they were maintaining their mandate for zero emission vehicles,
ZEV, (electric) to become a reality in 2003. This will send all the
Automobile and truck manufacturers clamoring to seek out practical, economic
and powerful batteries to fulfill their needs.
The Concept: To produce a new, environmentally friendly, more powerful, more
efficient battery for commercial use in the electric automobile and other
existing battery applications.
The Inventor: Internationally recognized inventor Alvin A. Snaper holds
several hundred patents, including the IBM Selectric Ball, an Apollo photo
instrument for NASA, landing gear for Boeing, a Fluidic computer for Singer,
a Fluidic Missile System for Rocketdyne, an electrostatic paint process for
General Motors and now, the Power Technology Battery.
The Past: Over the past three years, Mr. Snaper has been developing a
battery to improve the lead acid battery used in most automobiles, trains,
airplanes and marine craft, and to power electric vehicles more effectively.
To succeed in the electric vehicle market, a battery needs lighter
components and substantially increased power densities so the electric
vehicle can compete with the internal combustion engine in performance and
cost. Batteries, a major component of the electric vehicle, are typically
subject to low efficiencies and are an environmental hazard (they contain
lead and acid). However, Mr. Snaper and his team have developed a superior
battery with a unique electrode structure, which increases the
electrochemically active surface area within the battery 1000 times and is
light weight, produces more charge and recharges very quickly.
The Present: Power Technology, Inc. has applied for patent protection for
the battery and has received the patient as of May 2000. Meetings with
commercial battery producers are slated during the fall of 2000 to
demonstrate the product and discuss options for commercial production.
The Advantage: While Power Technology, Inc. is initially seeking to deliver
an updated battery for the electric car, its unique product can immediately
be adapted to the existing battery market place. The Power Technology
battery can be used in boats, ships, and airplanes to reduce weight and
Power Technology, Inc. will form industry alliances with commercial battery
manufacturers to deliver its battery to the marketplace efficiently, without
the cost of developing its own factories and marketing connections.
Power Technology, Inc. will organize alliances with producers of electric
vehicles, aircraft, water craft, trains and heavy trucks to test this
product in all types of conditions and prove its superiority to industry and
the public. There is also a tremendous market application for bicycles.
Power Technology, Inc. will work to deliver this and other environmentally
friendly products to the market place. Other products in development
include a new air conditioner unit for automobiles that eliminates the use
of freon, and an alloy sensor that generates its own voltage continuously.
The Company is conducting research and development on its patented alloy
sensor technology. The proprietary alloy gives off a small (1.5v)
electrical charge when it comes in contact with moisture. The Company has
been developing this technology for use as a permanently installed water
detection device to check for the presence of water in storage tanks, fuel
tanks and other systems. The alloy sensor can be mounted on a valve socket,
along with a meter. A plug inserted into the valve permits quick and easy
meter readings. This technology also has applications in the roofing and
marine industries and hydro applications, and it can be used as a
Patents are our future. Power Technology, Inc. through the sale of licenses
for the use of its technologies, will establish a highly efficient,
financially sound, commercially viable corporation that will work for the
benefit of its shareholders.
POWER TECHNOLOGY, INC.
Power Technology's years of research and development will produce a
revolutionary internal battery structure, known as Generation No. 2, which,
when coupled with the correct application of nickel and iron, will:
1. Require one-half (1/2) the size of a lead-acid battery to produce an
equal number of watt hours;
2. Require one-half (1/2) the charging time of a lead-acid battery to
produce an equal number of watt hours;
3. Weigh less than one-half (1/2) the weight of a comparably sized lead
4. Have two to two and one-half (2-2.5) times the power density of a
comparably sized lead-acid battery (70-90 watt hours per Kg versus 20-35
lead-acid), comparable to expensive exotic chemistries;
5. Be adaptable to varied dimensions and configurations for use in
electric bicycles, automobiles and a range of other applications;
6. Have a life of two to three times that of a lead-acid battery;
7. Be capable of accepting low level ultrasonic vibration to enhance
conductivity, whereas solid plate lead-acid batteries typically cannot;
8. Not require thermal management packages for high-output uses such as
9. Cost approximately the same to produce as a lead-acid battery;
10. Retail for ten to twenty percent (10-20%) more than their lead-acid
counterpart, while providing double the range and longevity; and
11. Improve the use, ease and efficiency of any battery powered product.
By using specially formulated reticulated foam plates and metallic pastes.
Previously, foam plating developed by competitors has proven too weak to
support the battery's internal structure. Power Technology has solved the
problem and has received patient protection.
Who is Power Technology?
Power Technology, Inc. (PWTC) is an SEC registered, reporting compliant
technology company based in Nevada with an R&D department whose members have
a 30+ year history of developing numerous patented inventions for practical
commercial, industrial and government use. Power Technology has previously
patented a unique alloy sensor, which produces an electric charge on contact
with water; the alloy sensor is presently being tested by Hydro Quebec (one
of the ten largest electric companies in the world) for use in its
hydro-electric power system. The company has also patented a Magnetic Pulse
Pipeline joining single stage welding process for joining large oil and gas
How could Power Technology have developed this product?
Alvin A. Snaper, whose well-known inventions include the IBM Selectric Ball,
Tang, the NASA Apollo Photo-Pack, and a line of industrial hard coatings
used by companies such as Gillette, Boeing, TRW, Vermont-American and many
others, is Power Technology's vice-president of development and project
coordinator for the new battery technology. Mr. Snaper has been engaged in
scientific research for over thirty years and has developed approximately
600 U.S. and foreign patents. The creation and acceptance of industrial
hard coatings led him to design and modify the new Power Technology battery.
Benefit to E.V. Global for the E-Bike:
The typical E-Bike 2x12 sealed lead-acid battery pack can be replaced by one
that is half the size and weight with no loss of capacity. For example, a
utility size Exide 12 volt battery weights 23 pounds, while the Power
Technology battery weights only 7 pounds.
By utilizing a 2x12 Power Technology battery pack, the E-Bike's range on a
single 110 volt charge will increase as a result of the 32 pound reduction
in weight with no additional cost to produce over the lead-acid model. The
battery can be advertised as environmentally friendly due to the elimination
of acid as a component. An extended battery warranty can be included at no
Benefit to the Electric Vehicle Industry:
Vehicle weight coupled with limited driving range are two of the major
problems the EV industry has faced. A Saturn EV-1 lead-acid or nickel-metal
hydride battery pack weights approximately 1,175 pounds, more than 35% of
the vehicle's 2970 pound curb weight. The nickel-metal hydride battery pack
costs substantially more to produce than lead-acid pack resulting in the
nickel-metal hydride equipped Saturn retailing for $43,995, some $10,000
more than the $33,995 lead-acid pack model. The next generation propulsion
system due for the EV-1 late next year will substantially reduce the weight
of the electric motor and related parts resulting in greater driving range
between battery charges. Reduction of battery weight would enhance the
driving range even further.
The Power Technology battery will:
1. Reduce General Motors EV-1 vehicle weight by almost 600 pounds,
increase driving range by 100% over lead-acid and 50% over nickel-metal
2. Eliminate the need for a thermal management system thereby reducing
manufacturing cost and weight, and
3. Be produced for substantially less than either the lead-acid or
nickel-metal hydride, resulting in more consumer friendly pricing of the
