HENDERSON, NV, USA, May 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- K2 Energy Solutions Inc., (“K2”) releases certifications awarded by The U.S. Navy via the Naval Surface Warfare Center. After careful examination and testing, multiple Navy Officials have asserted that several of K2’s cells, batteries, and systems are approved for use on various shipboard, shore-based, and non-fixed wing aircraft.

“The specifics of each certification vary, but K2 takes the approval of each as a strong statement of the quality, safety, and trust placed in K2 by the U.S. Navy. We view this responsibility and partnership with great pride and solemnity” said Sean Campbell, K2 Energy’s CEO and President.

K2’s Business Development Manager George Chesonis commented, “Throughout this certification process, Navy Officials did abuse testing that led to our batteries being shorted or overheated while attempting to force a fire and propagate to other batteries. In every scenario they tested, our system would not catch fire and propagate.” Chesonis continues “The performance of our cells and systems demonstrates the safety of K2 Energy Lithium cells, batteries, and systems.”

The Certifications are summarized as follows:
