Braille Energy Systems Inc. Launches F34 Fleet and Marine Group Lithium Battery for the Automotive, Truck and Marine Markets

Braille Energy Systems Inc.


OTTAWA, Sept. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Braille Energy Systems Inc. (formerly Mincom Capital Inc.) (TSX-V:  BES) (“BESI” or the “Company”), announced today the launch and availability of the F34 fleet and marine group lithium battery for the automotive, truck and marine markets.  The F34 lithium battery is designed for use in fleet, marine, truck and auto applications that utilize a Group 34 (or similar sized) battery.

The F34 battery contains the same benefits at the F31 battery and is also the replacement/upgrade product for the common Group 24 size used in the marine industry.  Additional key features of the F34 include improved engine management characteristics and data logging, due to improvements in voltage stability.  Ability to last 3-5 times longer than current products, with increased reliability and significant weight reduction, longer battery life (15-year service life) and simple maintenance are key benefits in marine use.  For automotive & truck applications, higher capacity and significantly longer life is ideal for vehicles with audio systems and high electrical demands (off road trucks), etc. 

The F34 delivers a full volt higher capacity, additional cranking power, 20-35 pounds lighter and may last up to eight times longer than traditional lead-acid batteries.  A three-year service warranty with first-year free replacement is included.  Sealed Safe technology allows for positioning in any orientation with no acid or hazardous chemicals spilling. The F34 and all Braille Battery products are designed, built and shipped in the USA, with performance certified and tested and is green-friendly, RoHS-compliant and lead-free.

For additional product and pricing information about the F34 battery and the entire Braille Battery family of products and solutions, please visit our website at: www.braillebattery.com or contact Mr. Gary Savage, General Manager at savage@braillebattery.com or 941-312-5047 x 401.
