Are Inspired Energy Batteries CE Compliant?
Yes, you can download a CE declaration on the product page for each battery model.

Can Inspired Energy Batteries be customised?
Yes, choosing an existing standard smart battery design means that there are no original design costs, plastics tooling or qualification expenses and the process from concept to production can be measured in weeks rather than months. Simply choose your mechanical platform, select your voltage and capacity then let us do the rest. You can find out more details by clicking here.
I am designing a new piece of equipment and I am concerned that an Inspired Energy battery may become obsolete. What is the obsolescence policy?
Inspired Energy have been manufacturing standard smart batteries for many years and have a large number of models available. Their policy is that they will continue to manufacture all models while there is a demand. Some parts of the design may evolve (such as electronics and cells) but functionality will be maintained or improved wherever possible. If you are concerned about future evolution then you can opt for a customised standard smart battery where the battery will be fitted with a bespoke label featuring your artwork. This can be accompanied with a written 'no change agreement' which means no changes without your approval.
I am trying to understand the Inspired Energy battery numbering system - can you help?
