Haredata Electronics were approached by a UK based aeronautics company, who imported a large number of instruments from the USA. These hand held instruments are powered by a bespoke Li-Ion pack in a hard case, together with it’s own charging cradle. However, as a result of the intensive use of the instruments many users wished to have spare batteries that could be charged separately while the instrument was in use and then swapped over as required. The original charging cradle was designed to take the instrument as a whole, therefore this method was not possible.
Working with the OEM, we devised a case of identical dimensions and were able to populate it with higher capacity NimH cells than the original pack, for a significantly lower cost than the battery packs from the original source. However, the real advantage we were able to offer was a dedicated plugtop NimH battery charger, which we engineered to plug directly into the external battery pack – eliminating the need for the battery to be connected to the instrument and inserted into the charging cradle. This further reduced the cost of the offered solution, but more importantly allowed the end users to purchase as many spare batteries and chargers as they wished, in the knowledge that they could all be charged independently from the instrument.
