Origin: NASA research on rechargeable silver zinc batteries

Abstract:
Research In its early days, NASA spent much effort developing rechargeable silver-zinc batteries, as the pairing offers a higher power-to-weight ratio than any other battery couple. Significant advances in the batteries_ durability were made at Glenn Research Center, which ZPower of Camarillo, California, used as part of its starting point, undertaking years of additional development before releasing its rechargeable hearing aid batteries, the first that can last all day on a single charge.
