Moixa is a British company that originally invented/licensed a foldable computer keyboard for use with PDA devices. The name Moixa is an inversion of the Greek word axiom (αξιωμα axioma).

The company has recently launched the Moixa Energy brand which produces a NiMH rechargeable battery called USBCell. The batteries include a USB connector to allow recharging using a powered USB port.[1] The USBCell AA product, launched on September 19, 2006, has been shortlisted as a finalist for a UK Design Week Award for best consumer product design of 2006.

THE USBCell is an award winning rechargeable battery powered by a USB connection to any applicable device. Launched in 2006 the USBCell has been sold in over 50 countries. It can charge to 90% in 5 hours and contains a 1.2V 1300mAh battery.[2] It can also be charged in standard rechargeable NiMH chargers alongside standard rechargeable batteries.

Maslow[edit]

Maslow is a building-based energy storage solution that works with existing photovoltaic panels to reduce energy consumption and offset power consumption to off-peak times. Using batteries charged through PV panels or the grid at off-peak times, the power is then discharged at peak times to reduce costs. The unit can support both AC and DC networks.

Currently the Maslow is available in three configurations: 2 kWh, 3 kWh, and 4-6 kWh stackable units. The 2 and 3 kWh units are suitable for domestic use, while the 4-6 kWh stackable units are tailored for businesses and schools.
