Description : BatMax is sold as a battery life booster, that is laid next to a battery to extend battery life and reduce charging time. It is also supposed to rejuvenate batteries.
Status : Now in production currently being shipped to both U.S. and international retailers and wholesalers. Old and new rechargeable batteries can benefit from BatMax and the product is compatible with all mobile phones, though it works better on older batteries. The Patch is expected to be available to U.S. consumers by around Oct. of 2006.
Technology : BatMax is based on the IonXR2, a new exclusively developed nanoceramic material, resulting from years of laboratory research.
Applications : While the patch has been shown to improve all battery types, including non-rechargeables, BatMax is focusing on cell phone and laptop applications as being the most market feasible.
Estimated retail for a BatMax strip
to go with cell phone battery: $9.95.
to go with Notebooks: $34.95
to go with PDA: $23.95
to go with Smartphone: $12.95
to go with 3G mobile phone: $11.95
to go with game console: $10.95.
(price is proportional to the size required)
Aluminum foil lined with a layer of special minerals is able to affect the battery by reactivating the particles in the battery that have lost their ability to be polarized. It "dissolves" the crystalization that causes battery life loss.
The foil strip needs to line the surface of the battery, approximating the size of the battery "like a slice of ham on a piece of bread". The patch should cover at least 60% to 80% of one surface (large) of the battery. White, active side of the strip must face the battery. The strip needs to be installed within the battery compartment, in close juxtaposition. It is not actually affixed to the battery.
International (PCT) patent held, filed in Europe and Asia.
BatMax is allegedly the first accessory in the world that increases the mobile phones battery life and reduces charging time.
BatMax is a small (29 x 50 mm / 1.14 x 1.97 in) rectangular foil which is installed in seconds by the user (next to the battery).
BatMax foil allegedly slows down the loss of capacity of Ni-CD, Ni-MH, Li-Ion and Li-Polymer batteries and thus provides improved battery performance.
BatMax has tested some 50 different batteries and brands.
Engineers from major companies have tested the project.
Thousands of testimonials have been received, but are not posted, giving preference to certified tests.
Company sent PES Network a sample of their product for testing and validation.

In October Mr. Aisenberg sent me some samples of the BatMax patch. Due to time contrstraints, I was not able to do a scientific test, using a control, but I did apply the patch to my cell phone which I've had for about three years. The phone's battery had been deteriorating, requiring frequent charging, and it did not hold a charge very well. I laid the BatMax patch next to the battery and closed the compartment. Since that time, I immediately noticed a definite difference. The phone charges faster, and holds the charge longer. I will now be approaching the New Energy Congress to see if someone there might be willing to do a more scientific, quantitative test of the patch.
According to the company the product is well-integrated. "We are working with more than 25 major entities."
Cell phone carriers in Europe: Vodafone, SFR, Elion, Telephonica
HP to distribute product in Europe
Several battery manufacturers in Europe and Asia, plan to integrate the product.
Alain Aisenberg was working in the battery industry, having produced numerous patents there, and in that process of looking for some paints to protect the metals from corrosion, began noticing certain effects on battery life with certain metal foils and minerals. Over the course of about two years of research and development, his team tried various combinations and ended up with what they now have. Further improvements will continually be sought, to decrease thickness, and improve the effect, while staying away from toxic substances.
The product has undergone several tests, and no health issues have been identified as of yet. While certainly not qualifying as "edible," no detrimental health ramifications have been discovered.
