The EXO Charge portfolio currently includes the following solutions:
Small Tactical Universal Battery (STUB) – Working with the US Army’s C5ISR Center, the STUB is being developed as a new series of standardized rechargeable batteries to reduce the battery burden and logistics complexity for deployed units. It features USB Power Delivery (USB PD), Programmable Power Supply (PPS), and eight various device attachment methods across 8 different battery sizes to meet application-specific power requirements.
Augmented Power Pack (APP) – Designed to meet the needs of Special Operations Forces, the APP is being developed as a fully ruggedized and water resistant 240Wh power bank for operational use in austere conditions. The APP is designed to fast-charge several devices simultaneously using USB Programmable Power Supply (PPS) and Power Delivery (PD) technologies – and features two USB Type C ports plus a 2-way Nett Warrior connection for maximum flexibility.
Rugged Auxiliary Charger (RAC) – Small, light and rugged, the RAC utilizes USB PD and PPS technology to deliver faster charging than other alternatives, and supports up to 300W of total power. The RAC is compatible with bulk chargers such as ABC and UBC, and can also charge standard military battery types such as the 2590 and CWB as a stand-alone charge. With 2 USB-C ports and a Nett Warrior connector, the RAC delivers maximum flexibility and interoperability.
