The Benefits of Bulk Battery Chargers

Lately there has been a push for common battery charging systems for military use. As this article by AUSA explains, the Army uses a wide range of batteries for their systems, making a bulk, multi-battery charger invaluable. This need is why Bren-Tronics has created a product line of bulk battery chargers that can charge multiple battery types at the same time.

The Benefits of Bren-Tronics’ bulk battery chargers

Bren-Tronics engineers work with our customers to develop power solutions for all of their applications. One of the product lines that we have engineered are our bulk battery chargers. These chargers have many benefits besides simply charging multiple batteries at once that are great for military and defense applications. 

Bulk battery chargers streamline the charging process because of their capability to charge multiple batteries at one time. This also reduces the number of different single battery type chargers that are needed to support each type of equipment. 

Charging multiple batteries simultaneously also improves productivity as well. These stations provide a centralized location for large quantities of battery, providing users a constant supply of charged batteries as needed. 

Bren-Tronics Bulk Battery Chargers

Bren-Tronics has developed the Advanced Battery Charger, which is currently the leading edge in terms of charging performance and speed. The ABC charger is capable of charging up to 8 BB-2590/U batteries in less than three hours and 16 AN/PRC-148/152/163 batteries in less than two and a half hours.  The ABC is also backwards compatible with previous bulk adapters making it capable of charging over 50 different battery types.

The ABC is durable, compact, and lightweight, as well as water resistant up to 3 feet submerged for half an hour. It is compliant with several MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-461 standards, as well as RoHS compliant and CE marked. This bulk charger also has an excellent display function that provides users information on each battery being charged. The ABC can also function in a wide range of temperatures, from below freezing to the hottest desert temperatures. 

Bren-Tronics has other bulk battery chargers as well. The ABC is an updated product with several predecessors in the Soldier Portable Charger (SPC) product line, which has several versions including the SPC Lite and CE qualified models, to meet the EU’s safety, health, and environmental protection requirements. Over 40k SPC’s have been used by the Warfighter for over almost the past 20 years.
