Epsilor's 6T type batteries, which offer the highest energy
density in the market, will be presented at Booth A5. The company

Epsilor's lithium-ion vehicular battery family of products is
the optimal replacement for traditional lead-acid batteries,
offering four times the energy and approximately half the weight of
lead-acid batteries of similar size. The advanced batteries serve a
wide range of applications in the automotive, military and marine
markets - wherever the conditions are challenging, and weight and
volume considerations are paramount.
At the conference, Epsilor will present for the first time an
improved version of the 6T which meets the requirements of the
MIL-PRF-32565A Amendment 1 for rechargeable, sealed, 6T lithium-ion

Epsilor's 6T has an extremely long operational and cycle life
which results in a significantly lower environmental and logistic
footprint. The 6T batteries are optimised for next generation
armoured vehicles (MBT, tracked and wheeled IFV) and designed as

vehicle fleets. They are particularly attractive due to their
independent charge current regulation feature which enables these
batteries to perform safely and continuously even without
communication with the host platform.
"The fact that our 6T product family is being evaluated by many
parties is a clear indication of the great interest our solutions
draw," said Epsilor president Ronen Badichi. "At the
International Armoured Vehicles trade show and conference, we look
forward to meeting with new clients who need a smart drop-in
replacement for traditional batteries."
