Maxa Beam Searchlight and LiFePO4 Battery

EDGEMONT, Pa. - Peak Beam Systems, Inc. has announced the release of a new Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery for the company's Maxa Beam Searchlight. Weighing in at only 3.5 lbs., the new LiFePO4 battery can power the searchlight for over two hours and offers great value with a faster recharge time, lower self discharge rate, and more than five times the total life cycles that the company's older Lithium-Ion batteries.

Peak Beam's line of Maxa Beam Searchlights have been fielded by U.S. Military forces and foreign military, security, and law enforcement for over twenty years and have proven to be a valuable tool for security applications including perimeter surveillance, force protection, checkpoint security, and escalation of force operations. The LiFePO4 battery's long run time will enable the Maxa Beam's end-users to operate the searchlight for extended periods of time without the need for extra battery packs or recharging. In addition, the LiFePO4's low self-discharge rate makes this battery an ideal choice for users who want to store a charged battery for long periods of time.
