New zinc-air gives you a choice.

Your patience and your endurance can be stretched to the limit by hauling all the batteries you need for extended missions. A new zinc-air battery, BA-8180/U, NSN 6135-01-500-0572 can reduce the number of BA-5590s, BB-390s and BB-2590s you need to haul. For example, one non-rechargeable, zinc-air connected to a reusable interface adapter can replace up to seven BA-5590s.

Three interface adapters let the BA-8180/U power non-ASIP AN/PRC-119, J6634/U, NSN 5940-01-504-5597; ASIP AN/PRC-119F, J-6633/U, NSN 5940-01504-3218; and BA-5590 eliminator, J- 6632/U, NSN 5940-01-504-3217.

The zinc-air battery is made of two 12 volt strings which can be wired in parallel to provide 56Ah at 12 volts or wired in series to provide 27 Ah at 24 volts.

BA-8180/U Non-rechargeable Zinc-Air battery, NSN 6135-01-500-0572

This BA 8180/U is a 12/24 Volt, 800 watt hour, 56Ah primary (non-rechargeable) zinc-air battery pack. The bottom line: One 6 lb.
