Leader Group, a Sri Lankan battery manufacturer, has received the first locally produced high-tech Battery Capacity Tester from the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Modern Technologies (ACCIMT).

This is the first time the ACCIMT has prepared such a cutting-edge tester for a battery manufacturer in Sri Lanka.

The ACCIMT collaborated with the Leader Group to create this battery capacity tester.

This state-of-the-art equipment has set the stage for Leader Battery to not only meet but surpass Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) in various critical parameters, reaffirming its commitment to delivering high-quality batteries to its customers.

Chairman of Leader Group Dr. Shriyanthe Cooray said, “To power the world with tomorrow’s technology is our vision. We are on a mission to produce futuristic batteries for the world.

“This partnership with ACCIMT, under the visionary leadership of Dr. Panawennage, is a step towards making Sri Lanka a high-tech hub. The SilverCell technology in our batteries, coupled with this testing equipment, allows us to confidently say that Leader batteries exceed Japanese Industrial Standards,” he said.

Chief Executive Officer and Director General of ACCIMT, Dr. Sanath Panawennage said, “The success of our economic transformation process hinges on how much of our export volume is genuinely high-tech. Today, we’re discussing a product that not only streamlines high-tech manufacturing processes and supplies state-of-the-art products to global markets but is also versatile enough to be marketed to civilian manufacturers in this region and beyond.”
