Pure Energy Receives First Orders for Its New Cordless Phone Batteries
Pure Energy Visions Corporation (TSX-V: PEV) (FRANKFURT: XYQ) (“Pure Energy” or the “Corporation”), the leading Canadian provider of environmentally responsible rechargeable battery products, reported today that it has secured business for its new cordless phone battery packs with two leading Canadian retailers. The product is being distributed through Sure-Gro Inc., Pure Energy’s Canadian distributor. Shipments have already been made to one retailer with product expected on store shelves across Canada later this month.
In April 2008, Pure Energy announced that it would be introducing a complete line of rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) cordless phone batteries and battery packs this fall. Unlike the more traditional Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) rechargeable cordless phone batteries, Pure Energy’s NiMH products will provide longer cycle life and more talk time between charges. These batteries are also more environmentally responsible as they do not contain Cadmium. Health hazards associated with Cadmium has led to the banning of NiCd batteries for consumer applications in the European Union effective this September.
The introduction of Pure Energy’s line of proprietary Rechargeable Alkaline cordless phone battery packs is on schedule for release in 2009. Rechargeable Alkaline cordless phone batteries can be recharged 1000s of times and have significant cost and performance benefits over NiCd and NiMH cordless phone batteries including longer “reserve” talk and “standby” time. Unlike NiCd and NiMH they are also ready-to-use out of the package.

Rechargeable Alkaline batteries do not contain heavy metals such as cadmium or mercury and offer several performance and cost advantages over other rechargeable batteries including an industry leading 7 year shelf life — 40 times longer than regular rechargeable NiMH batteries.
