    Featured in:

    Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) and Toshiba Corporation have joined hands to co-develop lithium-ion battery packs that can be used for various Defence applications.

    Twice lithium-ion batteries can be packed in the same areas as acid batteries, along with that the charging time is shortened, and maintenance becomes much easier, as the batteries are more durable.

    It’s not clear which weapons system will get this lithium-ion battery but many missile systems also use conventional lead-acid batteries and replacing them with lighter lithium-ion batteries will not only prolong their life but also reduce the space and weight of the missile systems.
