Epsilor-Electric Fuel has received a contract from a South East Asian military customer to deliver military grade rechargeable batteries for Harris Falcon PRC-117 and PRC-152 manpack and handheld radios, the company announced on 15 May.

The batteries have passed a series of compatibility and operational tests including mechanical, electrical and communication interface verification.

PRC-152 compatible batteries are available in two configurations: 11.1V, 5.8Ah capacity battery; and high energy density battery with 7.0Ah capacity, offering around 20% additional operating time per charge.

Alex Stepansky, general manager of Epsilor, said: ‘Epsilor invested heavily in developing off-the-shelf batteries for a variety of US-made communication systems. Placing emphasis on high performance, reliability and ruggedised packaging, combined with cost effective pricing, resulted in superior quality and customer satisfaction.

‘The fact that a new international customer selected our batteries to support its large operational inventory is a clear indication of Epsilor's strengthening position in this market.’
