Neah Power Systems, Inc.'s BuzzBar® Second Generation Is Already Exceeding Expectations, Widespread Commercial Launch Imminent

BOTHELL, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2014) - Neah Power Systems, Inc. ('Neah') (OTCBB: NPWZ), an innovator and supplier of cutting-edge power solutions for the military, transportation and portable electronics industries, reported that it has filed two patent applications to cover the BuzzBar Suite and the BuzzCell. Additionally, initial units were received by Neah Power Systems and used for FCC testing. Neah Power Systems is pleased to report that the products are now FCC compatible, which is critical to widespread adoption.

"We are thrilled to be releasing the next generation of the BuzzBar Suite," said Dr. Chris D'Couto, CEO of Neah Power Systems. "We believe the new features and functions are superior and very differentiated from any other product on the market. Our Intellectual Property (IP) is a key asset of the company, and we are pleased to report that we filed patent applications to cover these technologies. We are getting significant interest from large retailers for this differentiated product. Neah has received our first units from injection molded manufacturing, which passed FCC testing. As part of our quality control, we identified certain cosmetic issues which we are addressing with our suppliers. We expect to now start shipping by the week of August 25th."

The BuzzBar Suite, which can be a life-saving product, allows for charging from a variety of sources -- grid power (traditional outlet), the BuzzBat (using AA and AAA batteries), the BuzzSol (solar panel), or the BuzzCell (available in Q42014).
