Lifton, Chairman and CEO of Medis Technologies Ltd. “Japan is very advanced in the portable electronic device market such as the next generations of mobile phones and we understand that Japanese companies, like others world wide, are looking for stronger and longer lasting power sources to accommodate the next generation phones and convergent devices.
