Designing and building the best military chargers for over 25 years.

Multi chemistry portable platform charger

ML50The ML50 battery charger is designed for demanding military use and to be carried by the soldier. The charger is used in open air applications during all type of weather conditions. The charger can be powered from a wide range of DC sources like vehicle systems and solar panels. The charger is very easy to operate, it has no switches nor is other adjustments necessary. The charging process is fully automatic. The charger can also act as a DC power source (PSU). The charger can charge SMBus batteries. None smart batteries (without integrated SMBus) as Li-ion / Li-poly / NiMH / NiCd etc can be charged without any further reprogramming by using special charging cables.
