Reduction in the number and type of batteries used in combat operations has become an urgent need within the Office of Secretary of Defense. To address this need, Protonex developed man-wearable power management devices that allow the user access to a variety of available energy sources (vehicles, solar and batteries) to capitalize on their existing rechargeable batteries. The result: significant reduction in number and types of batteries, reduced field logistics requirements, enhanced power reliability, cost savings, and up to 50% improvement in energy use with corresponding weight reductions.

Portable fuel cells also facilitate use of less batteries as they allow units to re-charge batteries while on the move. A series of proprietary fuel reformers that are both small and allow operation on a variety of available fuels (methanol, propane, kerosene, diesel, gasoline, biofuels, and military fuels). Protonex portable fuel cells have a wide range of additional uses that include, sustained emergency power, marine power, extended surveillance power, vehicle auxiliary power units (APUs), unmanned aerial (UAV) and underwater (UUV) vehicle propulsion. These power systems are among the industry's smallest, lightest and highest performing fuel cell systems for portable power applications.
