Geneq inc. announces a redesigned, ultra-efficient battery for the SXblue receivers product line

Montreal, Canada (March 29, 2019) – SXblue is pleased to announce a battery upgrade for its receivers. For the last couple of years we have been collecting our clients’ feedback and working on a new, state-of-the-art battery design.


The new battery is equipped with 4 Li-ion rechargeable cells that boost its capacity from 3900 mAh to 6000 mAh. It boosts the receiver’s autonomy by up to 50%, greatly increasing its field work efficiency. When fully charged, the battery can last up to 16 hours depending on the SXblue model and bluetooth connectivity.


The colored LEDs for the battery charge indicator have been enhanced for a better contrast even when working under sunny conditions. Like previous versions, the new battery is field replaceable and can be charged separately or while it is connected to the receiver.
With only 6mm increase in thickness and the same weight as previous models, the user
will not notice any change in handiness and ergonomy.


The new battery is compatible with all past SXblue II and III models and current iSXblue II+ GPS, SXblue II+ GPS, iSXblue II+ GNSS, SXblue II+ GNSS and SXblue Platinum.

The GPS week is about to be reset. Will your positioning products be ready?


The GPS week will undergo a rollover on 6th April, 2019 due to a 10-bit representation of the week number in the navigation message. At this date, the number will reach 1024, the highest value resulting in a rollover to 0 week number broadcasted by GPS satellites.

All SXblue products as well as G10, F90 and Net20 PRO receivers are already having a correcting firmware that implements and will account the week number continuously. All our products can be used normally on 6th April 2019 and after without any issue.
