FRAMINGHAM, MA, June 23, 2020 – Global Technology Systems, Inc. (GTS) announced that it has developed and introduced a new battery that dramatically increases the run time of the popular, wearable Zebra® WT6000 series Bluetooth® ring scanner devices.

With 6700mAh of capacity compared to only 3350mAh in the standard OEM battery and only 5000mAh in the extended OEM battery, the new GTS battery significantly improves productivity in warehouses and logistics operations.

“The WT6000 2X battery is our latest development in a series of power upgrades for mobile devices by our GTS team,” said Danny Rockett, GTS Vice President of Technology & Manufacturing. “We have also engineered power enhancements for other devices including Zebra® TC70 and TC75. And we are currently supporting our police, fire and first-responder professionals with more powerful batteries including up to 80% more run time for certain Motorola® two-way radios and up to 40% more runtime for some Harris® two-way radios,” added Rockett.

According to Driss Alaoui, GTS Engineering Sales Director, “Longer run times and longer battery life mean increased productivity for mobile device users. Amazon® is doing more than 300 million scans per week, so getting through a full shift, and more, is critical. Our special access to the highest quality cells and components, along with our design creativity, enable GTS to deliver extraordinary performance. The net result is that our customers can cut costs while at the same eliminating costly downtime.”

The new double-capacity battery, GTS part # HWTEXT-LI, is manufactured by GTS in Taiwan and is now available to be ordered. GTS also offers a standard capacity battery that is fully compatible with Zebra® RS6000 and WT6000 series Bluetooth® ring scanner devices. GTS part # HWTRS-LI, with a capacity of 3350mAh, is also manufactured by GTS in Taiwan and is now available to be ordered.
