“As with our recent announcements of Freedom IV and ProSeries product lines, we are continuing to closely follow our company roadmap that we developed 18 months ago, and we have now completed our testing on the Patriot Series product line and are ready to roll it out to the market,” said OGES Executive Chairman and CEO, Steve Barber. “This product line is geared toward those applications such as Drones and R/C vehicles that require a long lasting power source, without the puffing and swelling, and poor lifecycles seen in many foreign manufactured batteries in this market segment. This is a very exciting product line and we are really pleased with the way that it underscores our mission statement of on-shoring jobs and manufacturing back to the USA by providing the market with another Made in the USA product instead of having to rely on imported products. And not only is the Patriot Series range of R/C batteries a tremendous set of much needed products that are being incredibly well received by the R/C market, it is also a really fun, rapidly growing market segment that can be enjoyed by all the family, and we are delighted to be playing a key role in improving everyone’s ability to enjoy their participation in it.”
The Oakridge Patriot Series product line is being released in 2500mAh, 5000mAh and 10000mAh versions, with plans to release additional models in spring of 2016. These batteries have been tested for more than 600 charge / discharge cycles, which equates to more than 1 ½ years of cycling every day.
“We have developed these products by using advanced technology and materials and incorporating them into a really powerful, high quality product,” says Al Petschow, Oakridge Director of Operations. “We are producing these batteries here in Brevard County, Florida using skilled labor from the area, once more demonstrating our commitment to bring manufacturing jobs back to Florida’s Space Coast.”
