JAW BATTERY | Just Add Water | FRESH Batteries all the time!

S$ 26,923

 JAW Batteries are infinite shelf life batteries activated instantly by water.

Have you ever marveled at the possibility of storing energy forever? And for such energy to be unleashed by something as ubiquitous as water?

For the scientists and engineers at JAW labs, JAW has always been more than just a standard size single cell battery. JAW is fundamentally a concept with unrestricted form factor and limitless possibilities. We are seeking like-minded folks to develop their own applications with our technology.

JAW Batteries are unique. They are the only AA (1.5V) batteries in the world that is made with  environment-friendly materials to store a charge. This charged material stays inert until it is triggered by water. 

JAW Batteries have been tested in many types of water. We even tested it with tea, milk , soda and even urine!

JAW Batteries are non-toxic, non-staining and non-leaking.  Absolutely no rare-earth elements used!

JAW Batteries will come in the following sizes:

  • AA Batteries (done) 
  • AAA Batteries (almost ready !)
  • 9V (in final stage of safety testing)

Whatever emergency situation you may face, power up your emergency equipment with JAW Batteries and survive it!  


The journey has been long, yet extremely fulfilling. We are amazed at how this became a dream-come-true for the team. Just like any other great idea, it all started with a concept sketch. Many years ago, we thought to change the portable power landscape. We thought it was impossible, and that the technology available will not support it. 

BUT we were determined... and now, we are JAW Batteries! 

PARTS OF A JAW BATTERY

1) current collect medium     2) casing     3) spring     4) separator     5) negative medium     6) sealant ring     7) casing     8) anode powder     9) current collection medium     10) current collection cap

Here's a quick and simple 4-step guide that shows you how to activate and use JAW Batteries. They stay inert for more than 20 years, more than any battery that is currently out in the market. Instantly activated for use, fully charged, by water.   

STEP 1 : TWIST THE RIBBED END (clock-wise)

Twist the ribbed end clock-wise to allow water to flow into the battery to start the trigger process. JAW Batteries will activate a full charge even if it has been in storage for years. JAW Batteries stay inert!

STEP 2 : DROP IN WATER

Fill a glass of water. Drop the JAW Battery in and wait 1 minute before you take it out. You can drop multiple batteries as the glass can hold. 

STEP 3 : TWIST BACK THE RIBBED END (counter clock-wise)

Twist the ribbed end back counter clock-wise to seal it again. Your battery is now activated, full power.


STEP 4 : PAT DRY

Before using your JAW batteries, make sure the externals, specially the terminal ends, are all dry.

JAW Batteries took 9 years to develop. From our very early humble beginnings to today, our team is just so amazed, thankful to families and friends who believed with us. This journey is worth it, because you have walked with us... hand in hand.  THANK YOU!

  • Generation 2 was developed Mar 2011
  • Generation 3 was developed Dec 2012
  • Generation 4 was developed Dec 2015

What do you do?  

Watch this video and see how JAW Batteries saves the day!



JAW Batteries come in very handy in emergencies such as this. Be sure to carry a pair in your bag, wherever you go. It may literally save the night, and your life!  

Check out these JAW Battery situations too!

A few pairs of JAW Batteries in the glove compartment provides reliable power for your emergency light during an engine trouble at night. Your safety is important when your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere! 

In emergencies, a few pairs of JAW Batteries in your bug-out bag will help you survive the sudden trip to safety. It weights just as much as regular AA batteries. Keep it in the bag for many years, use it fresh and powerful as if you just got it yesterday!

Your tackle box will have enough space for a few pairs of JAW Batteries. Your future fishing trips will be a very safe adventure knowing that you have compact, inert, stored power that is very reliable when you do need it!

JAW Batteries are the perfect gift for your fishing buddies!

Keep JAW Batteries in a kitchen drawer, the toolbox, the fusebox, the basement, attic or living room.  Keep it accessible all the time. JAW Batteries will never lose power. It stays inert until you activate it with water!

Camping is fun, and getting back to nature is memorable experience, great for the heart and soul. Be sure you've packed JAW Batteries (to power your torches) just in case you approach dawn and going into the night. You need to make the trip safe for you and your companions. 

Hiking through a nature trail brings you the solitude you seek. It's the trees, your backpack, hiking gear... and you. Remember to bring enough snack food and water to sustain you. JAW Batteries for emergencies if you pass through a dark path in the jungle, or get caught up for the night.

When it comes to most survival situations, batteries are often overlooked. We make the mistake to think that a fresh pack of unused batteries do not expire or weaken. Or that one kind of batteries perform better.  Truth is, our batteries do leak, they can't be stored for a very long time and they have poor low-temperature, some high-temperature, performance. 

In general, batteries self discharge, they weaken in time. Used or unused. And some weaken FASTER than others. 

We need batteries that stay inert, alive and fully charged.... FOR MANY MANY YEARS.

Reliable batteries spell the difference between life, survival and even death. In a powerless dark house, a car broken down the road at night, coming home from a hike, at a camp out in  the middle of nowhere, your batteries are your primary source of light and power to survive the dark night.

Risks and challenges

We will work hard to execute our production plans and will quickly send out the first batch of JAW batteries to all our backers. We may see a few challenges with shipping to countries with strict custom guidelines for our shipment. Nonetheless, we will coordinate these matters to all who will be affected.
