August 4, 2014

ITEM 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 1, 2014, Axion Power International, Inc. (the "Company") entered into warrant exchange agreements ("Warrant Exchange Agreements") with the holders ("Senior Warrantholders") of the senior warrants issued in conjunction with the Company's May 7, 2013 senior convertible note financing ("Senior Warrants"). Pursuant to the Warrant Exchange Agreements, the Senior Warrantholders exchanged all of their Senior Warrants for shares of the Company's common stock ("Shares") at a ratio of 1.7 Shares for each Senior Warrant exchanged, in a transaction exempt from registration under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Pursuant to the Warrant Exchange Agreements, the Senior Warrantholders agreed to the following limitations on the resale of the Shares:

Through October 31, 2014, each Senior Warrantholder may only sell, pledge,

assign or otherwise transfer up to 10% of the number of Shares issued to it.

From November 1, 2014 through January 31, 2015, each SeniorWarrant holder may

sell, pledge, assign or otherwise transfer up to an additional 25% of the number of Shares issued to it (up to an aggregate of 35% inclusive of the 10% set forth in the bullet point above).

Through January 31, 2015, each Senior Warrantholder may not sell Shares during

any trading day in an amount, in the aggregate, exceeding 15% of the composite aggregate share trading volume of the Company's common stock measured at the time of each sale of securities during such trading day as reported on Bloomberg.

However, each Senior Warrantholder may sell Shares in excess of those permitted

under the bullet points above on any trading day on which the VWAP for the Company's Common Stock for the preceding trading day is at least $0.19 or less than $0.02.

The Warrant Exchange Agreements contain customary covenants regarding maintenance by the Company of current reporting status under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The Warrant Exchange Agreements also reference the Company's impending reverse stock split and contain provision for adjustment of share and share price adjustments pro rata with the amount of the reverse stock split. The Warrant Exchange Agreements affect all of the warrants to purchase 17,281,107 shares of the Company's common stock issued in conjunction with the May 2013 senior convertible note financing.

ITEM 5.02. Departure of Director.

On August 3, 2014, Thomas Granville resigned as a director of the Company, effective immediately. In tendering his resignation, Mr. Granville indicated to the Company that, due to the finite amount of time he is able to dedicate to the Company as he resolves his personal health issues, that it would be in the Company's best interests to transform his involvement into a consulting role on terms to be defined between Mr. Granville and the Company during this next business week.
