The world’s first low-energy, low-maintenance water heater is being offered by Rinna, a small Japanese manufacturer of water heaters.
The unit, the first water heater with a built-in rechargeable battery, was designed by an Israeli company, Airtech.
The company plans to sell it at $7.50 a pop.
Airtek sells water heators for $30 a pop on Amazon.com.
Rinnah is one of several small Japanese manufacturers that are producing cheap, high-performance water heatens for homes and businesses.
It is a sign of the times, said Hiroshi Matsui, chief executive officer of Rinnaha.
The maker of the Airtec Water Cooler is making a small electric water heater called the Rinni.
The Rinnia has a built in rechargeable cell that can last for several years.
Matsui says the Rini is a smaller version of the Rina, a larger, two-person water heater.
The makers say the Rino is the first electric water heater with a rechargeable rechargeable power pack.
Matsi says the price of the company’s first model is about $1,500.
It will sell for about $5,000 in Japan.
A couple of months ago, Rinnalas chief executive, Kazuhiko Hata, said the company had received orders from a number of companies in Japan and abroad.
Mats, the company chairman, says the company will ship its first units to customers in late March or April.
He says the first units will be used for a couple of years.
The water heater has a range of about 3,200 feet.
Hata said the unit has two main functions.
First, it can heat water in one bathtub at a time.
Second, it helps customers conserve energy.
Mats says the unit uses two batteries that will last for five years.
He said that when a customer goes out and uses the unit, it will turn on automatically and then turn off automatically.
Mats also said that the water heater can be charged through a USB port on the wall.
Hato said that he did not want to disclose the details of the unit because the company is still under investigation by the Japanese regulator for its handling of the water supply.
Mats said that after the investigation, he will provide a written apology.
A few weeks ago, Mats said he had received a phone call from the Japanese company that was asking him for a price.
Mats added that he could not give a specific number of units that the company would be offering.
Mats and Hata declined to provide a price for the unit.
