Tecate Group and CAP-XX Announce Expanded Global Distribution Agreement


New Pact Enhances Worldwide Access to CAP-XX's Extensive Offering of Supercapacitors Optimized for Portable Electronics

San Diego, CA, December 2, 2010...Tecate Group, a premier global supplier of supercapacitors and capacitors, and CAP-XX, a leader in the design and manufacturing of ultra-thin supercapacitors, today announced an expanded agreement, adding worldwide distribution to the companies' existing Americas agreement. The only distributor to be named a CAP-XX Global Distributor, Tecate stocks and distributes the world's largest inventory of CAP-XX's full lineup of general purpose and high temperature supercapacitor cells and modules. Moreover, the parts are available for purchase from Tecate's online store at www.tecategroup.com/ultracapacitors/cap-xx.php.

Products involved include CAP-XX's ultra-thin G and H Series of single- and dual-cell supercapacitors. The low impedance power sources are designed to overcome both the power delivery constraints of battery systems and the energy delivery limitations of conventional capacitors. The series provide sufficient energy to handle power surges, and features a wide operating temperature range of from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C. These RoHS-compliant components boast a very low profile and are the industry's smallest devices available for given ESR and capacitance. CAP-XX's competitively priced parts are well suited for cost-sensitive portable applications, and offer long life performance at up to 2.75V in single-cell versions and 5.5V in dual cell configurations.

"Tecate is excited to have become CAP-XX's only Global Distributor," stated Tom Wight, vice president sales and marketing of Tecate Group. "We've achieved significant success over the years as a CAP-XX distributor for the Americas, so the expansion of our agreement to include worldwide distribution was a logical step, especially with our online store. This new contract will further enhance customers' ability to source CAP-XX's supercapacitor cells and modules, and allow them to more easily and cost-effectively bring new products and systems to market."

"CAP-XX's decision to expand its partnership with Tecate to strategically build distribution worldwide is clearly the best choice for manufacturers and assembliers of portable electronics," stated Ritchie Bloomfield, vice president of sales and marketing at CAP-XX. "We believe leveraging Tecate's world-class distribution and engineering capabilities with CAP-XX's supercapacitor cells and modules will be the winning formula for attaining a greater share of the global supercapacitor market."
