Innergy Power Gets All Charged Up for New York
After a positive experience at the MD&M West show this past January, Innergy Power (Scotts Valley, CA) decided to hedge its bets and exhibit at the MD&M East show. “We talked to other vendors [at the West show] who told us they generated more leads at the East shows,” says CEO Darrell Musick. “We figured if we got just as many leads at East that we did at West, it would be worth it.”
As a designer and manufacturer of batteries for over 10 years, Innergy Power has maintained a presence within the medical device industry. The company’s batteries are based upon its patented ThinLine planar-case design, combined with thin-metal-film technology. By integrating these features, the company is able to produce thin, flat, lightweight sealed-lead batteries with performance comparable to that of nickel–cadmium and nickel–metal hydride batteries.
Innergy Power’s latest product, solar energy modules, will be on display at MD&M East. According to Musick, an international aid supplier recently included the modules in kits to be used in tsunami relief efforts. “We provided our 20-W solar modules in a binder-style format, complete with a zippered carrying case, to the supplier,” Musick explains. “The modules fold out for use, and include an auto adapter cord that allows users to plug the battery into a car’s cigarette lighter.” The module can be used to operate or recharge a 12 V device.
He’s particularly excited about the company’s hybrid unit, which will also be displayed at the show. The hybrid unit runs off of solar panels during daylight and uses battery power at night. “It has some interesting possibilities for medical manufacturing,” adds Musick. The company hopes to explore possible medical device applications for both products at the East show.
