The XBK 1900 brings next-generation 5G cellular, 802.11ax Wi-fi 6 wireless gigabit-class networking technology performance to the XBK product family. XBK 1900s can be ordered three different ways, one variant using commercial off the shelf battery/power supply technology that is Airline/TSA safe, and two variants that leverage either the military BB2590 or PRC148/152 twist lock battery technologies. The latter offer substantially longer run times and use traditional military inventory batteries that are readily available through military supply chains. Each of these three variants are packaged within the amazingly small Pelican Vault 200 IP67 rated carry case.

The XBK 1900 is very affordable price in comparison to other offerings in the industry. The XBK 1900 kit uses field- proven AC/DC power UPS logic battery charging technology, paired up with commercially available, military-style 2590 battery and/or PRC 148/152 batteries.
