Lithium Ion Battery Modules for Autonomous Vehicles & Robots

Valence offers drop-in solutions for robots and autonomous vehicles.  Your robot can now use the same durable lithium iron magnesium phosphate technology that has powered Segway’s Personal Transporters for over a decade.  The U-Charge RT series effortlessly replaces 12-48V lead acid batteries using BCI standard sizing.  Using our patented, safe lithium ion chemistry and superior life cycle, Valence batteries become perfectly suited for applications in military, medical, education, and exploration.

Our most compact battery is the U1-24RT battery which offers 20Ah at 24V (over 500 Wh) all within a U1 size case weighing only 6.4 kg.  All RT series batteries incorporate their own battery management system to protect from over voltage, under voltage, over current, and over temperature conditions.  It automatically balances cells and modules for maximum energy usage.  The U1-24RT can be put in series and/or parallel for additional power & energy and is ideal for robots, autonomous vehicles, and AGVs looking for light-weight and long run times.
