Neah Power to Send Latest Version of BuzzCell Liquid Energy Product to Consumers and Commercial Partners for Product Feedback

BOTHELL, Wash., March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neah Power Systems, Inc., (OTCBB:NPWZ), a provider of proprietary, award-winning power solutions, announced preliminary testing has been completed on the liquid-fueled BuzzCell, and that prototypes will be shipping to select consumers (including Twitter contest winners) and commercial partners for product feedback.

"We are very excited to be sending the BuzzCell to consumers and partners for feedback," said Neah Power's CEO, Chris D'Couto. "We have been developing this technology for over two years at Neah Power, and are pleased to start shipping these units. By incorporating technology from our November 2013 asset purchase, we will further enhance performance and may also be able to reduce production costs of the BuzzCell. We expect to continue to rapidly deploy the latest iterations of the BuzzCell into the hands of users and incorporate their feedback quickly for a one-of-a-kind product offering."

The BuzzCell is a revolutionary energy product. Unlike traditional chargers that lose power over time, when combined with the BuzzBar, the liquid power cartridges can be used anytime for instant power-on-demand. This becomes a game-changer for traveling professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, people in disaster areas, and the hundreds of millions of mobile device users on unreliable power grids.

The BuzzCell will be available for pre-order on the Neah Power website in March, and is expected to begin shipping to consumers early this summer.
