Micro Power Sets Safety Standard for Portable Battery Systems.HILLSBORO, Ore. -- Portable power solutions expert introduces lithium battery Lithium batteries are primary batteries that have lithium metal or lithium compounds as an anode. Depending on the design and chemical compounds used lithium cells can produce voltages from 1.5V to about 3V, twice the voltage of an ordinary zinc-carbon battery or alkaline cell. packs designed to boost safety and eliminate dangerous failures or malfunctions
Micro Power, the global leader in portable power solutions for mission-critical equipment, today announced the availability of SecuraPack(TM), a custom lithium battery pack designed to optimize battery system reliability and product safety. The SecuraPack brand offers OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) The rebranding of equipment and selling it. The term initially referred to the company that made the products (the "original" manufacturer), but eventually became widely used to refer to the organization that buys the products and customers a premium solution, with a customized, high-performance -- and most importantly safe -- battery system that is resistant to dangerous malfunctions.
Recent stories in the press describing exploding cell phone batteries and medical equipment malfunctions attributed to substandard battery systems have heightened concern about battery system safety and reliability. Delivering on its commitment to supply quality products and solutions, Micro Power is setting a new standard in battery system reliability with SecuraPack to virtually eliminate the risk of unwanted electrochemical electrochemical /elec·tro·chem·i·cal/ (-kem´i-k'l) pertaining to interaction or interconversion of chemical and electrical energies.
