Company History

N2Power was founded in Southern California in 1999 as a designer and manufacturer of ultrasmall, highly reliable, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly power supply units (PSUs) for the OEM market. In 2002, Qualstar Corporation acquired the company and made it a wholly owned subsidiary, integrating N2Power’s products into its tape storage libraries. Qualstar, also founded in California (1985), became a public company in 2000 (NASDAQ:QBAK) and offers the most cutting-edge tape storage solutions available, with energy efficient libraries that utilize the latest LTO tape drive technology and ultradense cartridges.

​The acquisition gave N2power access to new resources, such as domestic and international manufacturing capabilities as well as increased technical and engineering support. Despite the change in ownership, N2Power has never wavered from its commitment to produce green products—offering PSUs with power efficiency ratings beyond 90% well before the first federally mandated minimum efficiency requirements were introduced in 2006.
