VARTA Microbattery (Rye, NY) announced the CellPac BLOX system, a design program implemented to offer OEMs a semi-custom power solution when off-the-shelf lithium ion (li-ion) or lithium polymer (LiPO) soft pack battery assemblies do not meet the design criteria. A dedicated CellPac BLOX engineering staff is specifically trained to help accelerate time-to-market and minimize non-recurring engineering (NRE) by consulting with customers throughout every phase of the design cycle. Battery packs provided include those optimized to satisfy the most basic as well as the most complex requirements, in addition to those with high or low capacity specifications. Features include:

  • Standard cells and PCM (Protection Circuit Module) components.
  • Appropriate for a broad range of portable industrial, medical and data communications instruments utilizing embedded rechargeable batteries.
  • Availability with li-ion cylindrical, prismatic and pouch cells, and packaged in a soft pack design or shrink sleeve.
  • Nominal capacity of the battery packs ranging from 150mAh to 9000mAh, with voltages ranging from 3.7V to 11.1V.
