The Performance Power Magazine is a lithium energy cell power supply system for the X2 CEW.
Note: X2 battery packs will not work with the X3® or X26™ CEWs, and battery packs designed for the X3 or X26 CEWs will not work with the X2 CEW.
Battery packs should be stored in their original packaging, including the desiccant bag, until they are to be used. Do not store the PPM anywhere that the gold contacts on the top of the PPM may touch metal objects. If you cause an electrical short between these contacts, the short will drain the lithium energy cells and may cause the pack itself to become dangerously hot.
The PPM battery has enough power for approximately 500 5-second discharges depending on temperature, environment, use of the fashlight, and other factors. The PPM battery will deplete faster in colder weather than warm weather. Likewise, the battery will deplete faster with the fashlight active.
For more information on installing the PPM, see the Changing the Battery Pack section in this manual.
Note: Other battery pack options are available for the X2 CEW. See the Tactical Performance Power Magazine (TPPM) Battery Pack and APPM (Automatic Shut-Down PPM) Configuration sections in this manual.
