While new construction projects are safely on the fast track in Latin America, Onyx Service & Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:ONYX), is using this week to focus on supply agreements and monetizing new technology the company now owns due to its earlier acquisition of Southern Geo Power Corp. One of the new technologies that ONYX gained from the acquisition is named “eTessla” – a wireless power transmission product in development that is designed to eliminate the need for disposable or rechargeable batteries. Since ONYX is already a premier distributor for Hong Kong based Optimum Solar, management has engaged Optimum to finish the prototype designs of eTessla, procure manufacturing agreements in Shenzhen, China and ready the product for retail sales.

“The eTessla name is a combination of Nicola Tesla’s name, who was the original inventor of this technology and the type of SS chip the technology uses”, stated ONYX president Malcolm Burleson. The new ONYX technology can be seen at “If you’ve seen the charging pads you throw your cell phone on to charge without plugging it in, then you’ve seen this technology in its early infancy, which came out a few years ago. This technology has vastly improved in distance transmitted and power capabilities,” he added.

“We expect the eTessla to be a very lucrative asset of ONYX. When you consider that the typical US soldier deployed on a 72-hour mission in Afghanistan has to carry over 70 individual batteries, you can see the immediate value the eTessla could contribute to the ONYX bottom line. Batteries make up 20 percent of the weight a Soldier carries in theater. An infantry battalion spends more than $150,000 on batteries per year, which is second in cost to munitions – and that is just one of the applications for the military. The eTessla is being designed for applications for commercial, residential and industrial uses as well,” added Burleson. “You can see why the eTessla is anticipated to be a real game changer for ONYX and the world as we now know it.” Details of the military specifications Burleson spoke of can be seen at
