PowerSwap Nucleus® Classic Lithium Power System


With legendary reliability, this swappable power system outpowers other batteries by 90% 

Why Nucleus

A nucleus is, by definition, the central and most important part of an object, movement, or group, forming the basis for its activity and growth. This small, swappable, durable, portable battery pack is central to a mobile workstation system, providing the power for productivity.
The PowerSwap Nucleus® enables productivity to happen by providing seamless AC power to devices such as a laptop, tablet, barcode or inkjet printer, scanner, and more for 8+ hours at a time.
Typical PowerSwap Nucleus® Lithium Power Systems consist of the following individual components:
Fully Swappable System with Stand-Alone Charging Station Swappable System with Onboard Charging
  • 1 to 4 Swappable Batteries (PSNU3.6)
  • PowerDock Station (PWD2C)
  • PowerCharge Station (PWC2C)
  • Advanced Battery Monitoring Meter (PSNU-RM)
  • 1-2 Swappable Batteries (PSNU3.6)
  • PowerDock Hybrid Station with Integrated Charger (PWD2C-H-TSW)
  • PowerCharge Station (PWC2C) (Optional)
Once the battery charge is depleted, simply swap it with a fully charged one in a matter of seconds enabling a 24/7 operation Once battery charge is depleted, plug into a wall outlet to charge in about 4-5 hours.

Expand your capabilities by adding the stand-alone PowerCharge Station (PWC2C) for a fully swappable system  - and just charge onboard when you need it.

Features Include:

  • Exceptional Price-to-Performance: Outpowers other swappable batteries by almost double - providing 240W continuous output power and 920Wh battery bank (2 battery system)
  • Error-Proof:  Never lose a full day of production due to someone forgetting to charge the cart.
  • Fully Swappable:  In a matter of seconds so you'll never run out of battery power
  • Durable:  Advanced lithium technology provides a 5-7 year battery life or 3,000 cycles - making it a great investment. 
  • Hardware-Friendly:  Quiet, seamless AC power (no need to source for DC-specific hardware).
  • Remote Battery Monitor: Accessible, accurate, and easy to read up to 50 feet away
  • Proven Technology:  Making productivity happen across the globe in thousands of installations.

**Lithium Safety Concerns**: The Newcastle battery employs Lithium-Iron Phosphate technology, which is significantly more stable than standard lithium-ion or lithium-polymer solutions. Unlike these chemistries, Lithium-Iron Phosphate batteries are not subject to potentially dangerous ignition events when subjected to over-heating or mechanical abuse.
