ZPower silver-zinc rechargeable microbatteries are said to provide “the highest energy density” for their size compared to other rechargeable options and are capable of hundreds of recharges throughout their lifetime without significant loss of energy, according to the company’s announcement. They are said to be recyclable, non-toxic, and non-flammable. Currently a rechargeable option built into hearing aids from many major manufacturers, ZPower batteries are also found in bone-conducting medical devices and noise-masking sleepbuds.
