CAP-XX Appoints Specialty Supercapacitor Distributor Tecate

    Online Orders to Ship Next Business Day

    SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, December 18 /CNW/ - CAP-XX Limited (LSE:CPX), a leader
in ultra-thin supercapacitors which boost power delivery in mobile devices,
today announced it has appointed Tecate as its global online sales partner and
as a stocking distributor for the Americas. San Diego, Calif.-based Tecate
will stock CAP-XX's full line of General Purpose and High Temperature
supercapacitors. Engineers may now purchase small quantities for prototyping
from Tecate's online store at, via the "Buy Now"
function on CAP-XX's website, or by calling 619-398-9700. Online orders will
normally ship the next business day. Production quantities will also be
available to customers located in the Americas through the online store and
field sales team.

    Supercapacitors, also called "ultracapacitors," combine the
energy-storage capability of batteries with the rapid charge and discharge
times of conventional capacitors. Supercapacitors can offload large
instantaneous power demands from a battery to enable new functionality and
extend battery life.

    "Tecate's ability to accept online orders and ship the next day is a huge
benefit to our customers," said Peter Buckle, vice president of sales and
marketing for CAP-XX. "We believe that this relationship will increase the
awareness of CAP-XX's product capabilities with design engineers and sourcing
professionals around the world."

    In addition to the CAP-XX range of supercapacitors, Tecate's online store
features other lines such as the Maxwell Boostcap(R) ultracapacitors, which
provide very high capacitance in larger form factors for more energy-intensive

    CAP-XX supercapacitors are the smallest and thinnest available today for
any given ESR and capacitance. They pack a high energy density (capacitance up
to 1.6F at 2.75V) and high power density (ESRs as low as 18 milliohm), into
thin prismatic packages (from 0.9mm thick), suitable for use in slim, portable
electronic devices such as camera phones, PDAs, digital cameras and multimedia

    "The CAP-XX line now allows us to cover applications where space and ESR
are mission-critical, positioning Tecate as a 'one stop shop' for
supercapacitor solutions with design engineers and purchasing professionals
alike," said Tom Wight, director of sales for Tecate.
