Safety
Durathon Battery’s safety design features and protective controls in the battery management system guard against failure modes common to industrial batteries due to misuse, damage or other external factors.  
Long Service Life
Durathon Batteries are designed for continued daily cycle performance over extended periods of time, enabling a high-energy throughput over the life of the battery. Durathon technology can run over 3,500 cycles at deep depth-of-discharge (80% DOD), equating to one cycle a day for ten years.
Temperature Independent
Durathon Batteries can function in temperatures ranging from -20°C to +60°C, without any energy or life de-rating. Ideal for use in transport, fleet or material handling vehicles, Durathon Battery's technology has the ability to function in a wide range of environments, enabling vehicles to travel and adapt to various climates quickly without compromising performance. 
High Reliability
Durathon systems are engineered to maintain power. Individual battery modules have a battery management system (BMS) designed to optimize battery life and performance, protect against abusive conditions, and enable remote monitoring and diagnostics.
Smaller Footprint
With best-in-class energy density, Durathon Batteries are smaller in size and weight compared to current industrial batteries, delivering more usable space. High energy density means that vehicle users can go longer between charges and use less space storing banks of batteries, delivering cost savings. 

A New Way to Power the Motive Industry

Ideal for the industrial motive and transportation markets where safety, cycle life and reliability are key drivers, Durathon Battery technology’s sodium nickel chemistry provides a safer, cost effective and space saving solution.
 
Its design and operation means Durathon Batteries are the ideal choice for use in harsh environments. Temperature independence allows operation in temperatures ranging from -20°C to +60°C, without any energy or life de-rating. Ideal for use in transport, fleet or material handling vehicles, Durathon Battery's technology has the ability to function in a wide range of environments, enabling vehicles to travel and adapt to various climates quickly without compromising performance.

Smaller in size and weight compared to current industrial batteries, Durathon Batteries allow vehicle original-equipment-manufacturers (OEMs) to deliver more usable space for their material-handling and commercial truck customers. Durathon Batteries’ high energy density means that vehicle users can go longer between charges and use less space storing banks of batteries, delivering cost savings. Coupled with a high specific energy that helps to increase the range of electric vehicles, OEMs and users can get more from their vehicles, improving overall productivity.
 
Of course safety in a motive application is essential. The Durathon Battery's high-level of safety design features and protective controls in the Durathon Battery Management System protect against common industrial battery failure modes due to misuse, damage or other external factors. Durathon Batteries’ superior design and construction, combined with GE’s quality manufacturing excellence gives total reassurance for vehicle applications.
 
With a superior cycle performance at high depths of discharge, Durathon Batteries provide motive sectors with a battery option that cycles 3,500+ times in ten years. Cycling once a day for ten years, Durathon Battery technology is a cost saving motive battery solution.
