Delta-Q launches battery compatibility program
By Mike Brezonick24 May 2021
Delta-Q Technologies has launched a new partner program, “Charged by Delta-Q,” which is intended to provide battery and battery management system (BMS) manufacturers with the tools, brand association and access to pursue new opportunities with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The program allows battery partners to combine marketing efforts with Delta-Q and offers global OEMs access to a curated network of existing and compatible battery and charging solutions.
“Delta-Q’s compatibility program is an exciting opportunity for us to build our brand, establish deeper trust with customers, and grow our business,” said Lloyd Gomm, vice president of Business Development at Vancouver, Canada-based Delta-Q. “By signifying our compatibility with our battery partners, we’re able to expand our reach and showcase the true quality and reliability of our solutions to OEMs.”
Intended to give OEMs confidence in battery and charger choices
The compatibility program was created to give OEMs confidence that the battery and charger combination will provide their electric products with best-in-class performance, prolonged battery life and maximum uptime. Through the program, OEMs can view tested algorithms and integrations with Delta-Q’s chargers and variety of batteries.
As part of the program, battery partners receive a “Charged by Delta-Q” marking for use on their products, packaging and marketing materials, which they can utilize as they look to grow their revenue streams and target new industries or regions that Delta-Q currently operates in. The logo signifies to OEMs that the battery or BMS was iteratively tested and validated with Delta-Q’s chargers and by its team of engineers. In addition, the program will allow the aftermarket to look for the “Charged by Delta-Q” mark on a battery or BMS during the replacement process.
“Since the intent is to bring value to current and potential customers looking for battery solutions compatible with Delta-Q chargers, we were selective in the battery manufacturers we invited to be part of this program,” said Rod Dayrit, director of business development North America at Delta-Q. “During our program launch, we have partnered with nine battery manufacturers that are aligned in bringing optimized and validated solution to the marketplace alongside Delta-Q.
“The program will invite other battery manufacturers in the future that align to the Delta-Q values, markets and vision in the same manner that the launch partners were selected.”
Battery manufacturers already taking part in the program include AllCell, ReLion, Discover, Trojan, Inventus Power, EnerSys, U.S. Battery and FullRiver Battery.
Participating manufacturers will be included in a comprehensive table of and product types on Delta-Q’s website. “Through Delta-Q’s historical collaboration with battery manufacturers, the program already has an extensive list of product types available for OEMs to view,” said Dayrit. “This table will continue to grow as more partners join the program and as Delta-Q and its existing battery partners develop and test new solutions together.”
