Visit from A Canadian Telecom Company, Seeking New application of DQFC
=== April 6, 2004 ===

Representatives from a Canadian Telecommunication Company visited Powerzinc Electric (Shanghai) Inc. on April 6, 2004 to discuss the possibility of applying DQFC Zinc Air Fuel Cell in the communicatin power supply system.

The said Canadian Telecommunication Company originally planned to use Lead-Acid batteries as the power source, which can only last about 1 hour on standby. In comparison with Lead-Acid batteries, Powerzinc's DQFC Zinc Air Fuel Cells can provide more than 6 hours standby time with much more lighter weight. Besides, communication engineering often involves field operations, where electric network is seldom available. This is critical to the Lead-Acid batteries as they are dependent on electric network for recharging. Obviously DQFC Zinc Air Fuel Cell has more potential applications due to its refueling mode of replacement of the "fuel" zinc plates. Both parties have agreed to have further detailed cooperation in the near future.
