UK-based aircraft components-to-energy conglomerate Meggitt has confirmed that the Boeing 787's battery charger, made by one of its US subsidiaries, has passed a series of tests by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

The tests were performed on the battery charger produced by Meggitt subsidiary Securaplane at its Tucson, Ariz. facility in January.

The NTSB said, "The acceptance test procedure of the APU battery charging unit was conducted at Securaplane in Tucson, Ariz., on Jan. 21. The battery charging unit passed all significant tests and no anomalies were detected."
