    Considerations for Choosing a Universal Battery Charger

    Universal battery chargers are becoming more important, as the number of different electronic devices being used increases throughout everything from everyday life to critical applications such as Defense and Aerospace. There are many things to consider when choosing the right universal charger, and to protect your devices and maintain their battery life, finding the right charger is important. 

    What ‘universal’ means in the context of charging

    Universal is somewhat of a misleading term for a battery charger. No charger is truly ‘universal’. Different batteries, especially for different devices, often have unique chemistries or voltages that need to be kept in mind. If a charger is not compatible with a battery’s chemistry, it could damage th

  7. Bren-Tronics Celebrates 50 Years

    Celebrating 50 years of Innovation

    This year, Bren-Tronics, Inc. celebrates 50 years of a rich history in innovation. From our founding in 1973 by Leo Brenna, all the way to the present day, we have grown into a leading supplier across the globe of reliable power solutions.

    The early years

    Bren-Tronics was founded in 1973 by Leo Brenna, a Vietnam-era veteran of the United States Army. Leo set out to produce batteries that would deliver reliable power to both military and industrial applications–places where failure wasn’t an option. He began by developing one-time use batteries, such as the BA-279 and BA-270, as well as the ‘lipstick’ battery used in survival beacons, which we still produce today. 

    As the company continued to grow, Leo saw a need for rechargeable batteries for military radios, and shifted the focus from one-time use products to rechargeable nickel cadmium batteries in the 1980s. In the 1990s, our technology evolved
