Saft Xcelion 6T®

The Saft Xcelion 6T is a 24V rechargeable Li-ion battery system cleverly designed as a ‘drop-in replacement’ solution for traditional lead-acid 6T batteries in military vehicles and other industrial applications. It provides the power equivalent to two lead-acid batteries at 25% of the weight and 50% of the volume.

This ruggedized battery uses Saft’s proprietary Super-Phosphate® chemistry (lithium-iron-phosphate technology) which offers many benefits over legacy technologies including longer cycle and calendar life, higher energy density, real-time diagnostics for improved reliability, and significantly reduced total cost of ownership.
