Thales – Modular Bulk Charger (MBC) Charging Solution for Multiple Batteries

The Modular Bulk Charger (MBC) is a bulk charger solution for charging multiple U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) batteries including Thales’ family of tactical handheld radios, AN/PRC-152, AN/PRC-163, BB-2590, and others. The MBC reduces the logistic footprint and costs when charging large numbers of batteries. The MBC is designed using a modular charging cup concept to allow charging combinations of multiple DoD batteries. The charger’s architecture is based on the fielded Universal Battery Charger (UBC) with the same familiar and simple user interface. Because the MBC uses the same architecture as the UBC, it provides all advanced features provided by the UBC. The MBC operates from both AC and DC with cables provided with each system. It provides eight USB ports for charging Smart Phones and Tablets.
