We keep being told it does not but all the data from EGE, the MSDS which is an official document etc. all say they have a valve?
I also found the name of the manufacturer as: "The Light of Heaven Earth Battery Manufacturing Co. Ltd."
With a little searching it seems "The Light of Heaven Earth Battery Manufacturing Co. Ltd. is really EGE Battery.
Actually, that MSDS says that Betta is a division of the Chinese manufacturer, so it may not be such a stretch to claim that Betta is the developer/manufacturer/etc., if the parent company holds the rights.
That does still seem to leave several other noteworthy details swinging in the breeze, so to speak.
Unfortunately, many of the most important technical details are still left unexplained or unconfirmed. I for one would still be willing to forgive a little miscommunication about the sales/marketing related details if the performance numbers were shown to be sufficiently impressive.
If the product itself is as good as some people would want the public to believe, there is probably still time for somebody to eat a little crow for a few poorly chosen words & then show the product in it's true light.
A good performing spill-proof battery will sell itself, even if a few of the details are slightly less than perfect. Attempts to gloss over imperfections will likely scare off most of the informed potential buyers (AKA members of this forum & those who listen to them).
A good opening line might sound something like:
Geeze, I had previously been misinformed by my superiors, but now I think that I've gotten to the bottom of it all & here are links to the actual test results & other pertinent tech data.
