The need for enough power to run a small 2.5 volt computer with an extended lifetime brought a global, industrial manufacturer to Fedco Batteries.
The sensitive device required computer circuitry and power longevity to output generator temperatures, vibrations and sounds. The data output was sent to analysts and managers, indicating the condition of the generator and any maintenance needs that may be required.
Fedco engineers spearheaded the concept with a team from the manufacturing company. They decided on a powerful—yet compact—3.6 volt lithium primary battery with an 8.5M amp hour rating. A circuit board connects the three parallel C-cells in a space-efficient and practical design that fits perfectly into the portable container.
The battery, shipped within the U.S., moved from concept to reality and has been produced and shipped ever since. Teamwork and innovation led to the small, yet highly efficient solution.
