Slower-Discharge Commercial Drone Batteries Tested

Braille Energy Systems Announces The Completion Of Test Trials Of Customized Lithium Batteries For Commercial Drones

Braille Energy Systems has announced the completion of test trials for its customized lithium batteries for commercial drone applications, such as Aerial LiDAR surveys, aerial photogrammetry and other aerial inspections.

With the market for commercial drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) projected to surpass $12 billion in 2021, up by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% from $8.5 billion in 20161, Braille Battery is extremely pleased with the results of its trials and the achievement of meeting another key milestone.

With the trials demonstrating that Braille Battery batteries provided longer discharge cycles – with significantly less weight – than the incumbent battery, the company has secured an initial request to retrofit existing UAV drones in operation valued at a minimum of $500,000.

"We’re seeing businesses across a wide gamut of industries embracing the commercial appeal of UAVs to positively impact their bottom line," said Lindsay Weatherdon, President of Braille Battery. "From companies such as Amazon exploring product delivery, to innovative applications in both media coverage and filmmaking, we’re witnessing a paradigm shift in how industries are evolving their respective processes by implementing UAVs into their workflow. Overall – each implementation represents a ready opportunity for Braille Battery and we will be there to power it.”
