TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 8, 2006) –

Attention News Editors:

In March 2006 Comtrex ( completed delivery of a new charger system to Canada's largest maximum-security federal correctional institution for male inmates.

The new system is comprised of 6-bank chargers designed to house emergency backup batteries indefinitely without damaging the cells, and a large number of single conditioning smart chargers to be placed in and around the institution at various guard posts.

"This system will greatly increase the longevity of their radio batteries, decrease charging times and replace the old conventional charge and recondition system currently used at Kingston and by most correctional facilities throughout North America," said Patrick Armstrong, Managing Partner of Comtrex Communications.

Comtrex also supplied self-branded radio batteries.
