Ultralife makes battery for beacon eyed in 787 probe: source

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Ultralife Corp makes the lithium-manganese battery that powers the emergency transmitter that is being investigated as a possible cause of last week's fire on a Boeing 787 in London, a source familiar with the investigation said on Monday.

As reported earlier, the emergency locator transmitter, or ELT, is made by Honeywell International Inc .

Ultralife, based in Newark, New York, was not immediately available for comment.

Honeywell says it has produced over 3,000 of the emergency beacons, equipped with the lithium-manganese batteries, since 2005, and there have been no safety incidents.
