Epsilor’s new lithium-ion 6T battery is being evaluated and field tested by industrial customers and armed forces in five NATO countries, the company announced on 24 January.

Epsilor's lithium-ion vehicular battery family of products can replace traditional lead-acid batteries and offer four times more energy and approximately half the weight of lead-acid batteries of similar size.

The batteries have been optimised for next generation armoured vehicles such as main battle tank, tracked and wheeled infantry fighting vehicle, and as drop-in replacements for traditional lead-acid batteries in legacy vehicle fleets. The 6T battery features independent charge current regulation which enables it to perform safely and continuously even without communication with the host platform.

The Israeli Defense Forces recently completed a year-long testing process during which Epsilor's 6T was evaluated in different climate and field conditions, including desert, mountains and rocky areas.

Epsilor has also recently introduced an improved version of the 6T which meets the requirements of the MIL-PRF-32565A Amendment 1 for rechargeable, sealed, 6T lithium-ion batteries issued by the US Army Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center.
