New Primary Battery Introduced By SAFT —Literature Available

SAFT Corporation of America, Valdosta, Ga., has announced the availability of a new line of highcapacity primary batteries for the navigational aid and barge lighting markets. According to Edgar Gardner, general manager, this is the first truly new development introduced to this market in many years.

Mr. Gardner said the new line of batteries uses the carbon-zincair principle familiar to the marine lighting industry. SAFT's new line, however, incorporates a non-liquid electrolyte and other advancements that result in an extremely lightweight, compact, stable energy source without the maintenance requirements and hazards associated with the liquid electrolyte technology.

According to Mr. Gardner, the battery will be manufactured at SAFT's new plant in Valdosta, under the trade name SOLID POWER.

It will be available in 350, 1200, 2400 and 3600 ampere hour capacities with voltages of 1.25, 2.50 and 3.75. It will also be offered in buoy power pack assemblies in 1200, 2400 and 3600 ampere hour ratings at 6 or 12 volts.
