August 17, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Valence Technology Inc. (Austin, TX), a leader in the development and commercialization of Saphion™ technology and lithium-ion polymer rechargeable batteries, announced that its K-Charge™ Power System has achieved Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) Level 3 certification. Major telecommunications carriers demand NEBS Level 3 certification to ensure that products meet carrier class standards for safety, reliability and compatibility with existing equipment.

"Achieving NEBS certification confirms the safety and robust performance of our K-Charge Power System for telecommunications backup power applications," said Valence Chairman and CEO Stephan Godevais. "At twice the performance and two-thirds the weight of comparable lead-acid systems, the K-Charge Power System offers a compelling value proposition by dramatically reducing the overall cost of ownership and maintenance requirements for telecommunications and utility customers."
