CAP-XX Appoints Synerdyne as Sales Partner for Japan

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - CAP-XX Limited (LSE: CPX), a leading developer of thin, prismatic supercapacitors, today announced that it has appointed Synerdyne Inc. as its distributor in Japan.

Tokyo-based Synerdyne will provide a local source for CAP-XX supercapacitors, together with outstanding design, engineering and after-sales support.

"We believe that Synerdyne's design-led sales philosophy, industrial and commercial electronics focus, and complementary line card will be a great fit for CAP-XX, and deliver an immediate boost to our business in Japan," said Peter Buckle, vice president of sales and marketing for CAP-XX. "This relationship will increase the awareness of our products with design engineers and sourcing professionals throughout the country."

Takaharu Sugata, president of Synerdyne, added: "CAP-XX supercapacitors will allow us to offer our customers a world class pulse power and back-up power solution."

Supercapacitors, also known as EDLC or ultra-capacitors, combine the energy-storage characteristics of a battery with the rapid charge/discharge characteristics of a capacitor. Supercapacitors can help batteries handle the peak-power demands of consumer and industrial electronic devices, enabling smaller, lighter, and cheaper batteries to support high-power features such as LED flash, wireless communications, GPS, solenoid/actuator operation, and more. They extend battery run-time and life, particularly at low temperatures. They can also replace a battery completely when paired with renewable energy sources, or provide a secure, stable power supply during fluctuations and outages in mission-critical applications.

About Synerdyne:
Established in 1975, Synerdyne is a leading distributor of semiconductors and electrical components to industrial electronics markets in Japan, with particular expertise in the telecommunications, medical, semiconductor, measurement, green energy, and defense sectors.

About CAP-XX:
CAP-XX develops supercapacitors for space-constrained electronic devices. They are the smallest, thinnest and lightest available for any given resistance and capacitance, with very high power density (up to 90 kW/L) and energy density (up to 5,000 J/L from tiny 2.4F cells) in packages from just 1.0mm thick.

CAP-XX supercapacitors resolve the performance limitations of batteries (and other low-power energy power supplies), and provide back-up power for secure data and communications. Examples include GSM and RFID modems, smart meters, tablet and handheld computers, point-of-sale systems and ruggedized PDAs, smart phones, cameras, solid state drives, location-tracking devices, electronic locks and condition-monitoring systems.

CAP-XX is listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in London. For more information, visit or email
