HBL supports several critical applications across sectors including Aviation, Railways, Defense, Oil & Gas, Power, Telecom & Data Centers.

HBL’s first product was a combat jet aircraft battery, developed just for the Indian Air Force. But our constant commitment to innovation led us to offering the world’s widest range of specialized batteries available today. Our batteries offer unique solutions to the most challenging applications in missiles, aviation, submarine, and UAVs.

Today, HBL is the world’s second-largest Nickel-Cadmium battery manufacturer, India's third-largest telecom battery manufacturer and the only Indian company with Pure Lead battery technology.
