Battery Battle Goes Public

FIRST PERSON/OPINION

Via e-mail:

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT- Warning

Please be aware that a certain individual by the name of Jason Levitt d/b/a Full Spectrum Power has been using the trademark SPEEDCELL and associated logo S design. These marks are owned exclusively by NAVITUS GROUP, LLC . At a prior time Mr. Levitt was distributing batteries made by NAVITUS GROUP but their association was ended on October 21st, 2009. Mr. Levitt is now distributing a battery of unknown origin which has been examined by some battery experts and is believed to pose possible risks to those using the misbranded batteries due to at least some of the imitation batteries having solder covering the safety disc / OPRV or other aspects of manufacture of the imitation batteries.

NAVITUS GROUP is concerned not only about the confusion and infringement of their exclusive trademark rights, but also the apparent danger which may be posed by at least some of the imitations sold by Jason Levitt and Full Spectrum Power under the exclusive trademarks of NAVITUS GROUP. Although Mr. Levitt has claimed rights in the marks SPEEDCELL with the S design logo through an improper filing in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, such marks are the sole proprietary rights of NAVITUS GROUP. All those interested in purchasing SPEEDCELL brand batteries need be aware of the confusion being created in the marketplace by Mr. Levitt and Full Spectrum Power and contact NAVITUS GROUP LLC for a list of authorized distributors, retailers, or other sources for the legitimate SPEEDCELL brand batteries.
