Solicore Receives UL Approval of Flexicon Batteries

October 13, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Solicore Inc. (Lakeland, FL), a leading provider of ultra-thin, flexible, lithium-polymer batteries, announced that it has been awarded Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) approval for its Flexion lithium-polymer batteries.

"Underwriter's Laboratory is a very well-recognized and trusted approval agency for the entire electronics industry," stated Solicore Executive Vice President of Technology and Manufacturing Wade Guindy. "By having UL approval, our customers will immediately know that our Flexion batteries are extremely safe and well-suited for their applications."

The agency approvals involve a range of stringent safety testing, including battery crush tests, nail penetration tests and other safety-related abuse tests. The approval took affect immediately upon completion of UL's site visit to Solicore last month.
