Battery Pack Applications

Acting as a value-added assembler for major cell manufacturers, AirBorn provides custom battery packs assembled with:
  • Lithium ion (Li-Ion)
  • Lithium polymer (Li-Poly)
  • Nickel metal hydride (NiMH)
  • Nickel cadmium (NiCd)
  • Sealed lead acid (SLA)
  • Lithium, alkaline, or silver oxide cell chemistries
It doesn't matter if the pack is a smart (SMBus) assembly or a basic design, has low- or high-capacity specifications in small or large production volume.  A safe, reliable, and appropriate solution will be provided.  Whether you need sealed lead, NiCd, NiMH, lithium or alkaline, we can make a battery pack to suit your needs.  We will work with your engineers to select the best cell for the application, choose the correct charge regime and make sure the end product meets or exceeds your size, weight and run time expectations.  We can even provide you with sample packs to make sure your battery performs as required.

To support our commitment to custom battery pack assembly, we have the complete manufacturing capability under one roof. These capabilities include:

  • PCB Assembly
  • Cable and Harness Assembly
  • Supply Chain Support through our own distribution group as well as direct relationships

AirBorn has a full inventory of dies already in-house which may help reduce connector tooling. Other equipment includes UNITEK 250 (1-280-02, 1-250-04, and 1-250-02), heat tunnel, and hot-melt guns. Our supply chain support provides a streamline of pricing and best options available. AirBorn offers additional value through our FAE, specializing in custom battery packs with over 18 years experience in the industry. Experience across the breadth of battery applications...lead acid, NiCd, NiMh, Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, and primary lithium...military subcontractors to information storage to medical device to industrial scanners to animal grooming...

With two manufacturing locations, AirBorn ensures proper prioritization and response to our customers' needs.  We have the flexibility to support special inventory programs to mitigate long lead times...and deliver finished assemblies directly to a manufacturing floor.
