Aqua Power is a technology firm that develops, manufactures and has successfully commercialized magnesium air fuel cells for generating safe, clean, inexpensive off-grid electricity. Aqua Power‘s patented Realistic Magnesium Air Fuel System (RMAF) technology harnesses electricity from the chemical reaction of the combination of magnesium, oxygen (from the ambient air) and a saltwater electrolyte. RMAF powered applications can be refueled virtually without limit using the proprietary lightweight magnesium rods that fuel the chemical reaction.
RMAF fuel cells have a very long shelf-life, are lightweight, transportable, environmentally friendly, safe and easily scalable for greater power generation. Aqua Power has aggressively patented (16 patents and patents-pending to date, product specific and including RMAF base technology) and actively protects its intellectual property in Japan and internationally.
Aqua Power‘s fuel cell technology can be applied to practically any application requiring remote power, including emergency preparedness and disaster relief, outdoor recreation, industry (mining, oil and gas, forestry), military, marine (saltwater environments), and automotive opportunities (main drive, electrical subsystems, and backup systems).
Aqua Power has been generating revenue since its initial product line was launched in 2009 in Japan. Products included a water-activated AA battery (more than 8 million sold to date), mini-LED flashlights, and portable radios. Aqua Power products gained national attention in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami that devastated many parts of the country in 2011.
In June 2015, Aqua Power System Japan Kabushiki Kaisha became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aqua Power Systems, Inc.
