Neah Power Pleased With Consumer Demand for Generation One BuzzBar(TM) Technology, Production Underway and Expected to Ship Early

BOTHELL, Wash., Feb. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neah Power Systems, Inc., (OTCBB:NPWZ) a provider of proprietary power solutions, announced that sales for the first generation (Gen One) of the BuzzBar has closed out with the orders received to date, and that the second generation is already under development.

"We were very pleased with the demand by the consumer market for the first generation of BuzzBar technology," said CEO, Chris D'Couto. "We have closed out final sales of the Gen One, and received excellent feedback from the initial prototypes and helpful comments online. We have already implemented some compelling design changes into the first generation BuzzBar, including making the unit more compact thus increasing energy density."

Gen One of the BuzzBar was available in limited supply exclusively via the new Neah Power website. It is expected that the second generation may be available both on the website and in select consumer outlets. Gen One BuzzBars are in production and expected to ship 4 weeks earlier than previously stated on the website, with the first units arriving in April. Gen Two BuzzBars will follow closely behind, along with the BuzzBat, BuzzSol, and additional BuzzCell accessories.

Unlike competitor's mobile chargers, the BuzzBar allows users to charge their mobile devices using virtually any source of energy that can plug into the BuzzBar including; wall outlets, batteries (BuzzBat™), solar power (BuzzSolTM), and the liquid fueled BuzzCell™. During power outages or in third world countries with unreliable power grids, traditional mobile charging units that must be charged via a wall outlet quickly become useless. The BuzzBar family of products fills this critical gap in the market.
