VIASPACE Inc., a company that transforms proven space and defense technologies from NASA and the Department of Defense into hardware and software solutions, announced today that it has entered into a distribution agreement for its state of the art BA-1000 Battery Electrode Health Analyzer product with WonATech Corporation of Seoul, Korea.
WonATech is a major distributor of high technology products including fuel cell and battery test stations to companies and universities in Korea, with additional distribution partners in Taiwan, China, Malaysia, India and Iran.
Improving the performance and safety of lithium batteries is a major challenge for battery manufacturers and university researchers throughout the world. Battery capacity and safety is limited by electrode changes during charge and discharge cycles. The BA-1000 Battery Electrode Health Analyzer is the first instrument developed to study these changes using a new, patent pending, nondestructive technique, which enables continuous analysis over the lifecycle of the battery.
VIASPACE CEO Carl Kukkonen stated, "WonATech is a well-known company in Korea with distribution to several other countries throughout Asia, and we are proud to have them as a partner to introduce our new VIASPACE Energy product globally. We believe that the BA-1000 will help customers rapidly develop and optimize new designs for rechargeable batteries for electronics, power tools and electric vehicles."
