Saft military Li-ion battery packs are custom-designed for integration into rugged portable devices or as standalone-alone equipment and as soldier central energy storage for use in demanding combat and training situations.
The packs may be assembled from cylindrical VL or prismatic MP Lithium-ion cells in series, parallel or series-parallel combinations and are available with soft (heat-shrink plastic) enclosures or hard (plastic or metal) casings. A key feature of their construction is cell level and electronic protection against charger fault and abusive operating conditions.
Typically, the Saft military Li-ion battery packs will include safety features such as electronic protection, thermal fuses, PTC’s and diodes, as necessary. Some versions also include an LED or LCD fuel gauge. They are all compatible with various constant current / constant voltage chargers, especially Saft’s EcMC2 family, and may also be fitted with State-Of-Charge (SOC) / State-Of-Health (SOH) indicators, SMBus communication or 2C communication.
