New LiFePO4 Battery offers longer run times and more life cycles than traditional Maxa Beam Batteries.

February 7, 2011 – 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 than the company’s older Lithium-Ion batteries.

New Life Battery

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.

Peak Beam has also announced the release of two charging units for the new LiFePO4 battery pack. For more information on the battery pack, chargers, and how this technology compares with Peak Beam’s existing battery offerings, please visit or contact Annie McManus, Director of Sales and Marketing, at 610-353-8505.
