Power Air Introduces “ZPAC 40” Zinc Air Powerpack

January 7, 2008

Power Air Corporation (OTCBB: PWAC), the Zinc power company, today announced the introduction of its first commercial product, the “ZPAC 40” Zinc Air Powerpack, at the 2008 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas (January 7-10, 2008). “The rate of growth and evolution in the Mobile Electronic Device market has been and remains extraordinarily brisk, with annual unit shipments of cell phones and MP3 players alone forecasted to exceed 1.5 billion in 2008. Moreover, innovations in functionality and internal operation are being introduced every six to 12 months. Recent innovations include high-speed communication, advanced color screens, enhanced Internet function and features, wireless capabilities, GPS, multi-media functions such as camera and gaming, and even TV broadband functions on multiple handheld devices,” stated Remy Kozak, President and CEO of Power Air Corporation. “Each innovation adds to both the ‘necessity’ for continuous availability of the handheld device and to its power-appetite. With traditional batteries struggling to maintain acceptable runtimes, there exists a portable ‘power gap,’ and Power Air is well positioned to exploit this market opportunity with its Zinc Air Fuel Cell technology.”

The ZPAC 40 provides the equivalent energy to 40 AA alkaline batteries, in a lightweight, compact, recyclable “CellPAC” that fits easily into a shirt pocket. The ZPAC 40 can be used anywhere, anytime, to provide safe, personal portable power without the need of an electrical outlet. It provides extra runtime for travel, emergency, remote and recharging power applications by supplying energy via a mini-USB port. Adaptors are available to connect to most devices that do not have mini-USB ports. Pictures of the ZPAC 40, as well as specifications and a listing of compatible devices, are available for viewing on Power Air’s web site (www.poweraircorp.com).

“We are introducing our ZPAC 40 to potential distributors, retailers and end-users at the 2008 International CES, and expect first customer shipments to begin in October of this year,” added Kozak.
