PAG/ Aspectra

Pag PL16+ | PAGlink Micro Charger With some of the industry’s most compact and highest energy density batteries, PAG is a leader in portable power systems. PAG offers both Gold-mount and V-mount Li-Ion batteries that are stackable for increased runtime through higher Watt-hours. On-board battery controls indicate capacity, load, and remaining runtime for the total of all batteries which are linked together. When stacking batteries, current is not transferred from one battery to another but instead is passed through a central bus bar. This allows batteries to be hot swapped, or additional batteries to be simply added to the back of the stack. Additionally, the PL16+ four position charger allows you to stack and fast charge up to 16 batteries at a time in a compact form factor. Using the internal Intelligent Parallel Charging software, the most discharged batteries will be given priority until all batteries reach a similar level of charge. In the field, the PAGlink Micro Charger is the ideal solution for up to four stacked batteries in a travel size charger. Available in both V-mount and Gold Mount, the Micro charger can replenish your batteries from either AC input or DC supply such as a vehicle battery or USB charger.
