We were delighted to receive the news that our LIPS 14 battery was shortlisted for the Security Innovation Award 2015 against competition from a record number of entries. The LIPS 14 is the latest and smallest addition to our range of lithium-ion batteries and has already seen service in Afghanistan. With a capacity of 9 Ah and an energy density of 160 Wh/kg, it weighs just 620g.

The Security Innovation Award is sponsored by ADS – the premier trade organisation for the UK’s aerospace, defence, security and space industries – as part of the annual Home Office Security and Policing event. Now in its 12th year, the award recognises not only the innovative equipment and technology produced by UK companies but also the partnership between people on the ground and those prepared to put the time and skill behind the development and production of new and ground breaking technology.
