DSEI 2015: Lincad Brings to Market Battery Chargers Designed with UK MoD

Following the successful showcasing in 2014 of the prototype Caravel Mk2 and Power Scavenger battery chargers, Lincad is pleased to announce that it has now brought the finished products to market. The company is demonstrating the capabilities of both chargers, designed in co-operation with the UK MoD, on stand S4-430.

Lincad is a leader in the design and manufacture of bespoke batteries, chargers and power management systems for the military and other specialist applications.  Operating since 1986, Lincad is a privately owned UK company with nearly 30 years’ experience at the forefront of battery and charger technology and design.

The Caravel Mk2 Charger is an enhanced, cutting edge replacement for the original Caravel Charger which has seen front line service with British and international armed forces for 15 years. Featuring the very latest developments in battery charging technology and design, it offers multi-chemistry charging of batteries from any original equipment manufacturer, making it possible to bring an entire battery fleet under the management umbrella of a single charging unit. With twin USB ports, it will also charge USB-enabled devices such as smartphones and tablets simultaneously.

The Power Scavenger is Lincad’s all-purpose solution to mobile power management in any situation where reliability, light weight and ease of use are critical. Offering the end user true flexibility in charging options, it can charge different battery types of any electrochemistry as well as USB-enabled devices from any DC input such as solar panels, a vehicle or other batteries.

In addition to Armed Forces across the world, the Caravel Mk2 Charger and the Power Scavenger will also be of interest to any organisation conducting operations in extreme environments.

We’re delighted to be exhibiting the Caravel Mk2 Charger and the Power Scavenger at DSEI 2015,” Brian Soden, Managing Director of Lincad, commented. “Both of these chargers, designed in co-operation with the MOD, demonstrate the strength of our commitment to the continual evolution of our product range and we’re looking forward to the opportunity to demonstrate that to the international delegations who will be attending the show.”
