What is the Tactical Welder?

The Tactical Welder is a completely portable welder. Because it is a battery powered welder, you are able transport the welder to remote and hard to reach locations with minimal time setting up.

What kind of power does the Tactical Welder have?

The Tactical Welder is 300 AMPS and has 1/2 KW of power.

How long does it take to set up the Tactical Welder?

The only set up involved with the welder is to turn it on. No generators. No cables. No more wasting hours of time and equipment setting up your weld job.

How much does the Tactical Welder weigh?

The welder weighs less than 25 pounds making it easily portable.

What kind of welding can the Tactical Welder perform?

The Tactical Welder can do MIG and Flux-cored welding.

How is the Tactical Welder powered?

The welder is powered from 8 lithium batteries, each 7ml thick.

How much can I weld on one battery charge?

The Tactical Welder can weld for up to 56 minutes using a 30% duty cycle, or half a 1lb. spool of weld wire on a single charge.

How long does it take the Tactical Welder to charge?

It takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the welder batteries.

How long to the batteries last?

The Tactical Welder batteries will last up to 3500 cycles.

Why isn’t the Tactical Welder a product available from traditional welding manufacturers?

The battery management technology and the safety are really the innovative design concepts (patent pending). The Tactical Welder is just the first of many products to follow delivering compact portable industrial power solutions for use in both industrial and military applications. Simply put, the company that developed the Tactical Welder preferred to “go it alone” vs collaborate with a large welding company where the development process may have bogged down.

What is the Duty Cycle for the Tactical Welder?

The manufacturer’s recommended duty cycle is 30%. You can operate at a higher duty cycle, but it will reduce the charge and time to weld. Excessively long duty cycles can potentially damage the battery cells, and shorten lifespan to prevent this internal safety features will shut the system down, to protect the welder from complete failure this is a soft shut down. The system will reset itself once the system has cooled to a safe level. In the event that the welder is pushed too far and exceeds the safe amperage level, an internal fuse will break severing the connection to the cells to prevent injury to the operator, and damage to property this is a hard shut down. If the internal fuse breaks the units must be returned to the manufacturer for factory reset, full re-inspection and recertification. Hard shut downs caused by improper use of the system are not covered by the standard warranty.
