Army saves over $7 million Recovering Batteries at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait

Use of PulseTech's HD Pallet Chargers recovered tens of thousands of 'dead' batteries. With each battery costing the government slightly more than $400 each it lead to savings of $7,023,133.

Challenge:

What to do with 10,000 to 20,000 'dead' 12-Volt batteries and more coming in from across the region

Results:

A two-man team was given 36 PulseTech HD Pallet Chargers with the capability of restoring twelve 12-Volt batteries at a time. In order to qualify as a recovered battery it had to meet both a voltage requirement and a crank-and-amp requirement. Over a two-year period, this team recovered over 15,000 batteries instead of automatically disposing of them which translated into huge savings for the Army.
