CAB supply battery packs for a wide range of industries. Selecting the most suitable products and manufacturers available to enable us to build bespoke top quality products that you our customer can rely on.

ARTS ENERGY (SAFT) have been supplying CAB Special Batteries Ltd for the past 15 years. The products that ARTS (SAFT) produce have always been considered as the benchmark for quality and reliability in the Emergency Lighting Industry.

ARTS Energy was created on June 1st, 2013, following a financial  buyout from the Saft group. Happily the vast majority of the staff have remained with the new company thus ensuring that the same high quality product continued seamlessly. ARTS Energy is now under licence from SAFT.

In 2014 the Nersac site celebrates its 40th year! Production started in 1974 and the company now has over 330 employees who are required for the production of  Nickel Metal Hydride or Nickel Cadmium compact, rechargeable cylindrical batteries.

Nickel Metal hydride:

CAB are  stockist of Arts Energy  Ni-MH rechargeable cells.

These cells have an enviable reputation for quality and long life in many types of applications: mobility, backup, photovoltaic, medical, emergency lighting units, to name a few…ARTS Energy have recently designed the 4Ah 7/5ths Sub C  Ni-Mh cell as a direct replacement of a NiCd D cell but with a smaller foot print to suit the new LED applications. The cell was designed to be very robust and operate in very demanding temperatures for -40 to +85 degrees Centigrade. This cell holds the certificate of registration to ICEL 1010 NiMh E55.

Nickel Cadmium:

As with Ni-Mh, Arts Energy designs and manufactures its own Ni-Cd rechargeable cells. These components have very high reliability, exceptional durability and are manufactured on automatic lines providing optimum protection for our employees.

The following cell hold the certificate of registration to ICEL 1010 NiCd E55:


 ARTS Energy is certified to ISO9001 and ISO14001.ARTS Energy ensures the quality of its components and the quality of its production through its chemical, mechanical, electrical and electronic laboratories, bringing together in one place, all the human and material skills to provide you with the highest quality batteries.

VARTA Micro Battery is a leading global manufacturer of retail and OEM batteries with over 125 years of experience. 

In 1887 Adolf Muller founded the company in Hagen and named it Bushes and Muller. Today they employ over 2000 workers and are represented in over 100 countries worldwide. 


The story of Duracell began in the early 1920's with an inventive scientist by the name of Samuel Ruben and Philip Rogers Mallory, a manufacturer of tungsten filament wire. Ruben came to the P.R. Mallory Company looking for a piece of equipment he needed for an experiment. Together Ruben and Mallory saw an opportunity: uniting Ruben's inventive genius with the company's manufacturing muscle. Their partnership, which would last until Mallory's death in 1975, was the bedrock of Duracell International.

Over this period Ruben's inventions revolutionised battery technology. During World War II, for instance, he devised the mercury cell, which packed more capacity in less space. It was also durable enough to withstand the harsh climates of wartime theatres like North Africa and the South Pacific. Ordinary zinc carbon batteries used in flashlights, mine detectors, and walkie-talkies couldn't. Because of this technological superiority, Mallory produced millions of mercury cells for the war effort. The Mallory Battery Company was formed shortly thereafter.

In the 1950s, Samuel Ruben went on to improve the alkaline manganese battery, making it more compact, durable, and longer lasting than anything before it. This was around the same time that Eastman Kodak introduced cameras. The built-in flash units required more power than zinc carbon cells could provide. They also needed smaller batteries. Mallory therefore developed alkaline manganese cells in a new size – the AAA. The technology was also licensed to others because the company, at that time, had no consumer distribution. The growing demand for photographic power put alkaline cells on the map – and in 1964 the DURACELL brand was born. Soon, the consumer market for DURACELL batteries rocketed and supplies had to be rationed in the 1970s as manufacturing capacity caught up.

Today, Duracell is one of the world's leading manufacturer and marketer of high-performance alkaline batteries. The tradition of innovation started by Ruben and Mallory is still evident in new DURACELL batteries such as DURACELL ULTRA POWER. Duracell also produces and markets primary lithium, silver oxide and zinc air batteries throughout the world, primarily under the DURACELL®.

With headquarters in Bethel, Connecticut, USA, the company now operates 10 battery-manufacturing facilities worldwide.
