Summary:

Mindex Battery Works, Limited; No. 21, Tung Yuen Street, Yau Tong Bay, Kowloon, Hong-Kong.

Hi-Watt Battery Industry Company Limited; 21, Tung Yuen Street, Yau Tong Bay, Kowloon, Hong-Kong (1985).

Labels: HW™, Hi-Watt.

Still an active company in 2014, see hi-watt.com.

Hi-Watt Battery Industry Co. is either the successor of Mindex Battery Work (renamed?), or Mindex, including brands and production facilities was taken over by Hi-Watt. The former seems likely since Hi-Watt was up to ca. 1984 a brand of Mindex; the latter also seems possible because Hi-Watt states a foundation year of 1984 on their web site.

Hi-Watt is a subsidiary of Guangzhou Light Industry & Trade Group Ltd. in 2014.

Founded: 1964
