Complete Battery Pack Solutions

1. Battery Pack Technologies

GBP Batteries pairs proven lithium-based battery pack technology with innovative and flexible engineering, testing and manufacturing capabilities to meet any power challenge – keeping you Always a Solution Ahead.

In our business, the true test of success is when the power supply is the last thing on your mind when taking a product to market. We work hard to ensure that portable and back-up power is safe, highly reliable and keeps your device working exactly as it should. And we’re extremely proud of our track record — with almost 20 years in the business and about 60 million packs shipped without a major customer recall or safety issue.

Lithium-Based Battery Packs

Since our founding in 1998, GBP Batteries has developed a reputation as a global leader in lithium-based battery technologies. We use the right cell technology and specialize in custom-designing and manufacturing battery packs for a variety of industry applications — from small portable devices to large devices. We specialize in:

  • Lithium-ion
  • Lithium-Iron Phosphate
  • Lithium Polymer
  • Super capacitors

We also have extensive experience in the following battery cell technologies:

  • PrimaryBattery
  • NiCd
  • NiMH

Our world-class technology organization has developed innovations to improve the safety, performance and usability of a wide range of primary (non-rechargeable) and secondary (rechargeable) cell types. We’re also experts in Class 9 shipping regulations for lithium-ion cells and battery packs.

Battery Pack Testing, Safety and Certification

Without question, safety is the most critical feature of power supply performance. It’s the core focus of every cell we use and every design. GBP is the only custom battery pack manufacturer that maintains an independent testing facility to verify product safety, power performance and environmental performance. This ensures peace of mind for our customers and expedites compliance and certification, so their products hit the market more quickly.

We’re extremely proud that we’ve never had a major product recall or safety issue in our  20-year history.

 

2. Battery Pack Design & Engineering

More than components. The right qualities.

Neither functionality nor aesthetics can compensate for a poorly designed battery pack. Bulkiness, power attenuation and oversensitivity to everyday movement will rapidly drain the user’s enthusiasm (and factor heavily into negative product reviews, maintenance and repair costs, and other effects). From a business perspective, if the battery pack power source can’t meet unit costs, production timelines or certifications, the project won’t move past concept.

To “get it right” with lithium-based battery pack power and help ensure product success, many of the world’s largest OEMs and contract manufacturers partner with GBP. Our 20 years of experience in battery cell chemistry, production, testing and safety gives us insight to key subtleties that can make or break a project. As industry leaders, we keep our clients in step with emerging power and battery pack technologies and advancements.

  • PCM or BMS multi-layer, complex designs
  • Suitable plastic casing design and production
  • We choose suitable battery chargers for the battery packs
  • Industry Applications: Consumer Electronics, Data Capture, Data Storage, Military, Medical, Smart Grid

 

3. Manufacturing

Battery pack manufacturing engineered for quality and speed

Our customers’ products don’t work without reliable battery power. In some cases, human health and safety may even be jeopardized. Our products must be readily available, and they cannot fail.

At GBP, we’ve developed flexible, state-of-art manufacturing systems — as well as strategic partnerships with top-tier manufacturers of battery cells, integrated circuits and plastics — to assure delivery of top-quality, high performance lithium-based battery packs, when and where they’re needed.

Globally, we’re capable of producing over 0.5 million battery packs per month — but never at the expense of quality. All GBP manufacturing operations are ISO 9001 certified, subject to rigorous, standardized audits by third-party certification entities. Our manufacturing facilities are also ISO 14000-certified to ensure environmentally-friendly products with a smaller footprint. We also implement Six Sigma process improvement tools, with approximately 60 of our senior engineers and staff certified at the Six Sigma blue, green and black belt levels.
