ASH VALE, England 28 Oct. 2015. Lincad LTD in Ash Vale, England, is introducing a battery charger called the USB Power Adaptor for military field applications such as powering and recharging of smartphones, tablet computers, hand-held radios, and other devices.

Designed to work with the company's family of 24-volt Lithium-Ion Power System (LIPS) batteries, the USB Power Adaptor can provide two dedicated 5-volt sources for a range of operational military requirements.

It also can be used to scavenge the remaining energy from a battery that has finished powering primary equipment. As a result, users can apply otherwise-wasted power to extending a soldier's operating capacity without the need for additional smaller batteries.

Compact and rugged enough to cope with the most demanding front line situations, the USB Power Adaptor has independent current-limited outputs and will self-protect against external short circuits and overload.
