Units feature a dual smart battery system, with both batteries having a charge circuit and “gas gauge” to monitor battery condition during charging and discharging.

With its rugged design, extended battery life and customized keyboard, the Hydrus is ideally suited for a range of outdoor applications in vertical markets where durability, operational longevity as well as flexible operations are mandatory including law enforcement (meter reading/traffic), agriculture, environmental (water testing), security (crowd control), fleet management and even the hospitality sectors.
