WALMART TO BRING ELECTRONIC SHELF LABELS TO THOUSANDS OF STORES

Walmart recently announced their plan to implement electronic shelf labels from VusionGroup in their stores, a significant step towards reducing paper and labor waste. With each Walmart store housing around 120,000 products and over 5,000 stores in total, this translates to 600 million price tags that would no longer need frequent replacements, thanks to the electronic labels. However, these labels are powered by batteries, which, despite their five+ year lifespan on a single lithium coin cell, still amount to a substantial number of batteries—approximately 100 million annually—for Walmart only. Which is following other retailers in the US and Europe where ESLs are quite common. 



We strongly support this sustainability move by Walmart to save on huge unnecessary waste. And Wi-Charge will be ready when Walmart decides they want to take it to the next step and save also the batteries waste replacing it with wireless power. This is the case where a single Wi-Charge transmitter can power 5,000 ESLs. 



We look forward to being part of eliminating billions of unnecessary Lithium batteries from our landfills
