(Newark, N.Y., June 2, 2010) -- Ultralife Corporation (NASDAQ: ULBI) has received an order valued at approximately $2.5 million for its Land Warrior batteries and chargers from the U.S. Defense Department. The contract is for lithium ion rechargeable batteries as well as vehicle, bulk and individual soldier-based chargers. Deliveries are expected to begin this quarter and be completed by the third quarter of 2010.

It is part of the company's SmartCircuit(R) family of products delivering power solutions to customers who require advanced functionality and performance. "As expected, the U.S. military has rolled out the Land Warrior program again this year.
