- Patent protection rights for the new generation IQP-2.0 in important EU countries
- Additional protection also in USA and Canada
Zug, Switzerland, 08 March 2017 – iQ Power Licensing AG (ISIN: CH0268536338; WKN/Security Number: A14M1C; Symbol: IQL) a developer and marketer of technologies for environmentally friendly and technologically innovative starter batteries for motor vehicles and licenses in these technologies, announces the granting of patents for the company`s technology of passive electrolyte mixing in flooded automotive batteries in more than 20 other countries. The patents primarily concern the new generation IQP-2.0, which is based on the predecessor version IQP-1.
The newly issued IQP 2.0 patents are granted to 18 European countries, including major markets such as Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

About the iQ Power Technology
Batteries with iQ Power technology are designed to generate better performance in Start-Stop applications and to meet the growing demands of electronic usage in vehicles today, is the first significant innovation to the flooded starter battery in decades. Automatic mixing of electrolyte inside the battery ensures uniform acid density for higher sustained performance throughout the entire life of the battery. This prolongs plate life by eliminating acid stratification and thermal gradients, delivering greater material utilization for a lower cost per cycle over conventional batteries. The patented technology was awarded the coveted Automechanika innovation award 1st prize in 2010.
