MOSCOW, Id. - IVUS Energy Innovations, a product and technology development company committed to bringing alternative energy technology to mission critical, mobile electronic products, recently appointed Dan Costa, CEO of 5.11 Tactical, to their board of managers. 5.11 Tactical has been a strategic licensing partner since April of 2008 with exclusive worldwide distribution rights to IVUS's patented FlashPoint Power Technology™ for portable lighting products.

Under this agreement, 5.11 Tactical will launch the first ultra-fast rechargeable flashlight that does not use batteries to law enforcement, military, and firefighting professionals. The 5.11 Tactical, Light for Life™ UC3.400™ with FlashPoint Power Technology™ is a full sized duty flashlight that uses an ultracapacitor energy storage system instead of batteries. With a peak brightness of 270 lumens, 2 hours of total runtime, no batteries to replace, ever, and a full recharge in 90 seconds, it is leading the industry in innovation and value.

After partnering for nearly a year, IVUS and 5.11 are taking their partnership to the next level by bringing on Mr. Costa as a third manager of the board. David G. Alexander, CEO of IVUS Energy Innovations and Michael D. Strasser, managing director of Ponderosa Capital hold the two other board positions. Mr. Costa has been in leadership positions in multiple companies, some of which he started himself and others he helped transform into top U.S. companies. "Dan's ability to see the future direction of business and develop a strategy for success is a huge asset for IVUS," said David Alexander, IVUS's founder and CEO. "We are very enthused that Dan has joined our managing board." said Mike Strasser, managing director of Ponderosa Capital. "His track record of successfully growing profitable companies will be very valuable as we seek to actively expand IVUS Energy Innovations into new markets."

With their first lighting product successfully launched and a product roadmap developed for 5.11 Tactical, IVUS Energy Innovations' management board is directing plans to enter other vertical markets with their unique, powerful, green technology.
