Dragonfly Energy Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: DFLI), an industry leader in energy storage, announces the expansion of its Wakespeed® product line with two innovative additions: the Wakespeed 500 Pro Bluetooth Alternator Regulator (WS500 Pro) and the Wakespeed 48V/12V Bi-Directional DC-DC Converter (WS48-12x). These new products are designed to empower truckers to maximize their on-board power and optimize charging efficiency.

Paired with the Wakespeed mobile app, WS500 Pro users can now wirelessly configure, update, and monitor their alternator charging directly from their smartphones. This newly integrated communication technology and intuitive app, available for both iPhone and Android, unlocks the potential for future features, ensuring the Wakespeed 500 Pro remains at the forefront of power management innovation.

The WS48-12x simplifies installation and streamlines power distribution within mobile applications utilizing both 12v and 48v DC systems. This truly bi-directional intelligent DC-DC Converter manages power between 12v and 48v, sending power from where it is available to where it is needed while respecting the needs and capabilities of both the 12v and 48v systems. Whether using the existing chassis alternator to charge the 48v battery or supporting legacy 12v loads from the 48v battery, the WS48-12x offers a high level of efficiency. Designed to work exclusively in combination with the WS500 and WS500 Pro, with or without a high output 48v alternator, this powerful converter unlocks full charging potential while greatly simplifying system installation. By seamlessly converting power bidirectionally from 48 to 12 volts, this innovative device empowers original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) and system integrators to manage energy sourced from alternators efficiently, ensuring optimal performance and reliability across diverse applications.

“Everyone agrees that platforms are going to 48v,” said Wade Seaburg, chief revenue officer of Dragonfly Energy. “These products allow heavy-duty trucks to leverage existing alternators to charge 48v battery systems faster while still maintaining a reliable and efficient power supply.”

The Wakespeed product line is designed to work seamlessly with Dragonfly Energy's Battle Born Batteries®, a trusted brand for deep-cycle lithium batteries known for their durability and long lifespan. Wakespeed products are a trusted choice across various industries, with a strong presence in marine, overland, and commercial applications, particularly for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), further solidifying Dragonfly Energy's commitment to diverse power management solutions.

The WS500 Pro will be available soon, with shipments expected to begin in late summer 2024. The WS48-12x is currently available for purchase and shipping.
