ACE to supply battery cells to Bren-Tronics for prototype military power systems
Florida-based Advanced Cell Engineering (ACE) has secured a contract to supply five-hundred 21700 battery cells to Bren-Tronics, a global manufacturer of advanced portable power systems for military applications used by the defence forces of U.S., NATO and government forces around the world.
The Long Island-based Bren-Tronics will use ACE's cells to produce high energy and power dense prototypes for a variety of military applications.
"The military sets an especially high standard for performance and quality in its mobile power applications," said Doug Petito, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Bren-Tronics. ACE's innovative new lithium-ion battery technology provides a high-performance solution for our customers, he added.
ACE develops and licenses proprietary, advanced lithium-ion technologies for high-capacity battery applications including EVs and energy storage. The company claims significant increase in energy density and improved performance over existing battery chemistries available today.
The technology can be produced in any cell format and is readily compatible with standard cell manufacturing equipment, according to the company.
"We are honored that Bren-Tronics has selected ACE's technology for this important initiative," said Tim Poor, President of ACE. "The advanced lithium-ion technologies developed by our team represent a substantial leap forward in battery chemistry and performance."
