Bergstrom Inc. and Johnson Controls-Saft have developed a lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery for Bergstrom's NITE no-idle truck systems to improve power efficiency, provide longer run times and enhance the environmental benefits of the units.
- At 110 lbs, Li-Ion battery weighs 63% less than the traditional battery
- Provides 16% more power, has 20% less volume, and an estimated lifespan of six to eight years
- As a battery-powered, no-idling system, the CARB-approved NITE units generate high BTU cooling capacity without releasing damaging emissions
- Li-Ion available in late 2010 as an option for all NITE no-idle systems
