Building Smarter Batteries and Power Products Here in the US

Tell us what you need out of your batteries,
and we’ll help you get there.

We design, test, and manufacture smart batteries and power systems for cutting-edge UAS platforms around the world

We work closely with our customers to understand their requirements, and we are able to develop high-performance batteries that extend flight times, even with increased payloads, and offer simple, reliable operation over a longer lifetime.

Packet Digital designs, manufactures, assembles and tests its battery systems in the United States. With an 80,000-square-foot battery cell plant in construction and a 25,000-square-foot manufacturing and assembly facility, we will be your guide from start to finish when building the high-performance battery system you need.

What are Smart Batteries?

A true smart battery pairs cells with electronics that provide real-time monitoring and reporting of critical performance data. This data provides important information to your flight computer, allowing it to make decisions in flight, ensuring safe and reliable operation, and early notice of developing problems. It also communicates with the charging system to ensure safe charging and prevent catastrophic failures. Smart batteries can also ensure safe storage and shipping by de-energizing the outputs when not attached to a UAS or charger.

Provides accurate state of charge information and power warnings to your UAS so you know how much charge you have left. This lets you reduce the margin to fly longer missions or use a smaller battery.

Monitors cell temperatures, which is particularly important for charging. Charging batteries that are too hot or cold can destroy them quickly, reducing cost efficiency for your missions.

Automatic self-discharge during storage dramatically increases the battery’s life. Circuitry inside the battery communicates with charging systems to ensure optimal SOC when in storage.

Monitoring and reporting faults helps you stay safe and retire your batteries if they’ve been abused or are just wearing out. This provides ease of mind during diverse mission settings.
