LITTLE FALLS, N.J. - mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL) has announced that it has contracted EaglePicher Technologies to manufacture the AlwaysReady Reserve Battery that will be used in the AlwaysReady Emergency Flashlight. EaglePicher was selected for the project because of their experience in custom and standardized power solutions for the extreme environments of aerospace and military applications as well as medical and commercial applications.
