Pure Energy Introduces Cordless Phone Batteries

TORONTO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2008) - Pure Energy Visions Corporation (TSX-V: PEV) (FRANKFURT: XYQ) ("Pure Energy" or the "Corporation"), the leading Canadian provider of environmentally responsible battery and lawn & garden products, reported that it is introducing two lines of Pure Energy brand cordless phone batteries and battery packs.

In August 2008, Pure Energy is introducing a complete line of rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) cordless phone batteries and battery packs. Unlike the more traditional Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) rechargeable cordless phone batteries, Pure Energy's NiMH products will provide longer cycle life and more talk time between charges. These batteries are also more environmentally responsible as they do not contain Cadmium. Health hazards associated with Cadmium has led to the banning of NiCd batteries for consumer applications in the European Union effective this September.

Pure Energy is also introducing a line of proprietary Rechargeable Alkaline cordless phone battery packs for release in 2009. Rechargeable Alkaline cordless phone batteries can be recharged 1000's of times and have significant cost and performance benefits over NiCd and NiMH cordless phone batteries including longer "reserve" talk and "standby" time. Unlike NiCd and NiMH they are also ready-to-use out of the package.

"Based on our ongoing work with several phone companies on a variety of projects, entering the cordless phone aftermarket is a natural extension of our OEM and retail businesses," said Paul Simmonds, President and CEO of Pure Energy. "Our network of international distributors including Sure-Gro and Conros/LePages in North America, are confident that we can jointly be successful in serving this market. We are particularly excited about our Rechargeable Alkaline phone batteries. The combination of a high performance and competitively priced battery that is environmentally responsible will provide consumers with the ideal cordless phone replacement battery."
