Adding State-of-the-Art Lithium Ion (Li-ion) Battery Products from
CTC Battery, Inc. (a Division of Farasis Energy, Inc.)

CDI is proud to announce the addition of CTC Battery, Inc. to its line card of energy storage solutions. CTC Battery is the commercial sales arm of Farasis Energy, a leading developer and manufacturer of lithium ion (Li-ion) battery systems based in California. Farasis Energy was established in Silicon Valley in 2002 to design rechargeable Li-ion batteries differentiated with a manganese rich cathode for higher performance, greater safety and lower cost than competing technologies. These batteries are produced in high volume at the wholly owned Farasis Energy facility in China, where quality is ensured through direct control of product manufacturing.
The product lines offered through CDI include:
LiFePO4 Batteries – drop-in replacements for 6V, 12V & 24V sealed lead-acid
LiFePO4 Batteries Perfect for scooters, wheelchairs, medical equipment, LED power supplies, 6/12/24VDC power, UPS systems, home security systems and solar. At a fraction of the weight and around five times longer battery life, these are a fantastic upgrade from lead-acid.
