The TS835 Series Emergency Power Supply is the aviation industry's first lithium EPS to be FAA TSO-approved.

Mid-Continent Instrument Co., Inc. signed a distribution and supply agreement with A123 Systems Inc. by which Mid-Continent will offer A123's advanced Nanophosphate lithium-ion battery technology for aviation applications. Mid-Continent’s True Blue Power division, which was announced in March 2011, initially began by offering two inverters and the TS835 Emergency Power Supply (EPS), the industry's first FAA TSO-approved EPS to feature A123 technology. Under the agreement with A123, True Blue Power will provide Li-ion cells, modules, and custom power solutions to the aviation community. Mid-Continent's True Blue Power division will work with customers to develop custom power solutions using A123's Li-ion chemistry for a range of aviation-related applications. A123's Nanophosphate technology offers advantages over lead-acid products, including faster charging and consistent power over a wide state-of-charge range, translating into smaller, lighter products. The True Blue Power TS835 Emergency Power Supply with Li-ion batteries from A123 is more than 66% lighter than its competition.
