Saft has developed a competitively-priced lithium-ion replacement for the traditional lead-acid batteries for use in the next generation of military vehicles.

The battery design is tailored to support high rates, even at extreme cold temperatures, to support the mission needs for silent watch and starting for military vehicles. The product is now industrialized and commercially available for integration in the next generation of vehicles.
