Energizer HardCase Professional Lights and Fulton eCoupled™ technology to enable contactless power delivery and charging solutions

St. Louis (December 17, 2008) – Energizer Battery, Inc. announced it is working with Fulton Innovation, LLC (Fulton) to accelerate development of efficient, intelligent wireless power solutions that can charge portable devices without traditional power cords.

As part of the relationship, Energizer is utilizing eCoupled wireless charging, one of a number of enabling technologies that Energizer views as having great potential in addressing consumers’ needs for portability and power - when and wherever they need it.

Energizer is partnering with Fulton to deliver an advanced wireless power product solution in portable commercial lighting. Together, with an in-vehicle console from Leggett & Platt, the companies are introducing a new rechargeable lighting solution that charges through eCoupled wireless power.

“We are excited to work with Energizer to bring together our intelligent wireless power delivery solutions with its devices,” said Dave Baarman, Fulton’s director of advanced technologies. “This is another example of how commercialization of cost and power-efficient wireless systems can benefit both the manufacturers and users of portable equipment.”

“Fulton’s eCoupled technology is exciting and provides new opportunities for commercial, industrial and consumer electronics manufacturers to change the way power is delivered to their devices,” said Miles Faust, General Manager, Energizer Lighting Products. “Users will be able to charge tools, lights, phones, headsets and laptops in new and convenient ways that previously were not possible.”

Saving energy through wireless power

Many consumers do not realize that electronic devices continue to draw electricity while the products are turned off. Research from the U.S. Department of Energy determined that, on average, 75 percent of all electricity used to power electronics is consumed when products are not in use. Fulton’s eCoupled technology addresses this problem by using an advanced profiling protocol that identifies eCoupled-enabled devices to be powered. At the same time, the profiling protocol also assesses power needs and individual battery lifecycles to provide only the necessary amount of power for any given device.
