Newark, CA, January 11, 2016 — Qnovo, the leading innovator of software to enhance battery performance, today announced it was honored with an Electronic Products’ Product of the Year award for its QNS Adaptive Charging Software.  

The editors of Electronic Products — a leading trade publication for electronic design engineers — evaluated thousands of products launched in 2015. The winning products were selected on the basis of innovative design, significant advancement in technology or application and substantial achievement in price and performance.  QNS Adaptive Charging Software demonstrated success in Power Products, Batteries and Fuel Cells by enabling faster charging with longer battery lifespan from standard, unmodified lithium ion cells.

“Battery performance is the Achilles’ heel of mobile devices,” said Paul Shea, editor of Electronic Products. “By adaptively modifying how the battery is charged, Qnovo is able to significantly extend battery lifespan – even while fast charging. This is a big win for new smart phone users – now they can have a long-lasting battery, faster charging and extended battery lifespan.”

The 2015 Product of the Year Awards were announced in the January 2016 issue of Electronic Products with a cover feature and a brief description of each product.  Additionally, the winning products appear on Electronic Products’ website: http://www.electronicproducts.com/ProductYear.aspx.
