PowerSwap Nucleus® Classic Lithium Power System

The FIRST lithium portable power pack designed for industrial environments


Why Nucleus?

A nucleus isby 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 power to devices such as a laptop, tablet, barcode or inkjet printer, scanner and more for 8+ hours at a time.

The typical PowerSwap Nucleus®  Lithium Power System consists of the following individual components:

  • 1 to 4 Swappable Batteries 
  • PowerDock Station
  • PowerCharge Station

Once the battery charge is depleted, simply swap it with a fully charged one in a matter of seconds enabling a 24/7 operation.  No tools or heavy lifting required. 

Features Include:

  • Lightweight:  Only 11 lbs per battery 

  • 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:  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)

**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.

Popular Applications

Popular applications when mounted to your own non-powered cart or when integrated onto NB, PC, QC, Apex, Atlas Series Workstations :


Manufacturing/Shop Floor
  • Raw materials receiving
  • Quality testing
  • Finished goods labeling
  • Visual work instruction
  • Mobile supervisor station
  • Incoming inspection & labeling
  • Cross-docking
  • Inventory control / cycle counting
  • Outbound labeling
  • Mobile supervisor station
Retail Floor
  • Shelf labeling, tag & sign printing
  • Line busting
  • Inventory management
  • Mobile point of sale station
  • Mobile station for garden centers, sidewalk sales, concerts & more 

Typical Productivity Gains

 Instead of walking back and forth from a deskbound computer to printers and other devices, all necessary equipment can be brought to where the work is taking place.  Quantifiable gains include:

  75% Reduction in Overtime
  63% Increase in Receiving Volume
  90% Reduction in Labeling Errors 
  $7,500+ Reduction in Labor Costs per Operator 
  Significant Improvement in Inventory Accuracy 
  ROI in 4-6 Months 


Power & Run Time

Model number represents the configured power system to handle your power requirements. Swappable battery packs (PSNU3.6) and battery charging station (PWC2C) are required and ordered separately based on your specific power & charging requirements.
