Vendum Batteries Expands R&D team

READING, UK--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Vendum Batteries (OTCBB: VNDB), a battery technology development company, is pleased to announce it is to expand its current research and development team.

Two students from top universities will be offered 3 year contracts undertaking research and development in the field of prototype batteries, super capacitor applications and paper-based materials.

CEO Fraser Cottington comments, "Expanding our internal research and development facilities will provide further opportunities to push the boundaries of current battery technology. Investment in this area is vital in creating 100% Vendum owned intellectual property and for new patent applications."

About Vendum Batteries, Inc.
Vendum Batteries has a pending patent on a non-toxic, carbon-based light-weight battery. The paper-thin battery contains none of the toxic elements used in conventional batteries and its cutting edge carbon Nanotube and cellulose-based technology makes it entirely biodegradable. The Vendum Battery will be developed from its current low power capacity, to soon accommodate the ever-increasing global demand for durable battery power for cell phones, iPods, human implants and eventually electrical vehicles etc. Americans purchase around 5 billion batteries, leaving 146,000 tons of battery waste behind, and given that the worldwide personal battery use is a growing $63 billion industry, the potential of this revolutionary non-toxic technology could be enormous.
