At Palladium Energy, we manufacture lithium-based battery packs and battery chargers for many industries, including medical, data capture and data storage devices and consumer electronics. But perhaps we’re most proud of the battery packs and chargers that we manufacture for the United States military. These power solutions withstand the harshest, most physically demanding environments for military needs – keeping our servicemen and women powered and safe.
Our customized power solutions support handheld and manpack radios, military PDAs and computers, unmanned aerial vehicles, forward mission devices, military vehicle applications — virtually any electronic device required for the mission.
In fact, our passion for innovation has yielded us exclusive rights to the patented phase change material (PCM). The outstanding thermal management characteristics of PCM make it possible for lithium-ion batteries to be a viable option for high-power and high-temperature military applications.
Many of Palladium’s military customers know Mark Batts, our division technical lead. Mark helps our company deliver military battery packs ranging from early prototypes to finished products. But what our customers might not know is that Mark is actually a veteran, having served in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1990 to 1998 as an Automated Logistical Specialist (92A). During his military career, Mark was promoted to Sergeant (E-5) and was a squad leader.
"Years ago I used the GI Bill and my drill compensation to pay for college. Today, I’m using what I learned in college to support the military – bringing my career full circle,” Mark said.
Mark has been a Palladium team member since early 2011, creating solutions for the military’s unique design challenges and improving on existing technologies to provide our servicemen and women rapid and valuable power supplies. As a veteran, Mark brings added value to our company since he understands the unique requirements that soldiers need to stay powered in the battlefield.
“As a veteran, I enjoy the interaction with today’s modern soldiers and the engineering challenge to make their jobs easier and safer,” he said. “Having the privilege to support them is a job perk here at Palladium.”
At Palladium, we’re proud to employ numerous veterans and are extremely grateful for their service. It’s gratifying to play a small part in protecting our country and keeping America’s heroes safe. From all of us – Happy Memorial Day!
