MILWAUKEE – Briggs & Stratton continues its innovation in electrification with the new Vanguard Lithium-Ion 1.5kWh Swappable Battery Pack, which will join the lineup of the current Vanguard Commercial Lithium-Ion Battery Pack models during the The American Rental Association's Annual Trade Show and Convention (Oct. 18-20) in Las Vegas, Nevada, and GIE+EXPO (Oct. 20-22) in Louisville, Kentucky. Attendees to both shows had the opportunity to see the new Lithium-Ion Swappable Battery Pack, as well as the currently available Lithium-Ion battery models including the 3.8kWh diecast battery, the 5kWh and 10kWh roll cage design batteries in the Vanguard booths.
“Electrification is quickly revolutionizing the power application industry and we’re proud to play a significant role in that process,” said Chris Davison, Briggs & Stratton Senior Marketing Manager, Commercial Power. “Innovation in power and power alternatives is more important than ever, and our current Lithium-Ion battery models, as well as our new swappable battery pack, continue to show the industry that Vanguard is leading the industry forward.”
The Vanguard Lithium-Ion 1.5kWh Swappable Battery Pack is designed to provide users with an efficient, versatile and reliable battery power option. The battery features an exchangeable design, allowing customers to easily remove and replace the battery as needed with minimal downtime. Like the currently available Vanguard Lithium-Ion Battery Packs, customers can combine multiple swappable batteries in parallel to make sure larger power needs can be met.
The swappable battery is set up for optimized network communication with the product and the internet via an IoT device. The connectivity also means that users can monitor the battery remotely, control battery-powered products remotely and conduct fleet management. Like all Vanguard products, the swappable battery is tested to ensure that it is able to withstand tough environments and is durable against abuse, debris and dirt.
