Enhanced Battery Assist Lever®
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever significantly improves the speed and efficiency of reloads and clearing stoppages without switching hands, allowing you to maintain constant fire control. This device easily installs onto your existing standard mil-spec forged AR bolt release/catch (paddle) with no weapon disassembly or parts replacement, and allows you to lock the bolt back and release the bolt with just a slight movement of your trigger finger. The Battery Assist Lever was recently redesigned from the ground up with considerable improvements giving rise to the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever.
The threat is still closing, the pressure increasing. Nothing is more important in the next two seconds than seating a new magazine and chambering another round. That is why we made the bolt release button of the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever 48% larger than the original to enable faster indexing and therefore faster reloads particularly important in the heat of battle.
Clear stoppages faster
You know you are not out of ammo but your weapon has stopped firing. Diagnostics indicates you have a situation that requires you to lock the bolt back to clear the stoppage. Simply lift up the Battery Assist Lever with your trigger finger while pulling back on the charging handle with your support hand (without the hassle of switching hands) and your bolt is locked open, whether you have thick arctic gloves on or not that is the beauty of the self-centering finger index groove.
Super tight, rock solid fit
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever easily installs onto your existing standard AR15/M16 mil-spec bolt release in seconds, with no weapon disassembly or parts replacement, and provides a super-tight rock-solid fit thanks to our exclusive Triple Screw Retention System.
Unlike other devices, the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever is designed to avoid making
contact with the upper receiver, and does not wobble and will not come loose even under the harshest of use.
Low drag contour
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever sports a low-drag receiver-hugging contour and rounded corners everywhere, making it snag-free and comfortable to use. With the original Battery Assist Lever, we learned that not all lower receivers are created equally. Some
(i.e. billet receivers)
are wider than others. That is why we designed the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever with a Wide Receiver Relief - to provide a better fit on more lower receivers. Compatible with standard /
mil-spec dimensioned, right-handed,
AR15 / M16
upper and lower receivers, including the HK 416, Sig 516,
; and also the
Cross Machine & Tool
billet upper and lower receivers. Not compatible with the FNH SCAR, S&W MP15-22, S&W MP15 Magpul Edition, Ruger SR-762,
Sig 716 weapons;
and may not be compatible with some 7.62 / .308 models
Easier to index
Unlike other devices that sit low and forward in the trigger well (requiring you to break your grip in order to reach it), the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever sits higher in the trigger well and more centered, making it easier to index (even for those with short fingers) allowing you to maintain constant fire control. T
he Enhanced Battery Assist Lever
does not interfere with the trigger or the magazine release button.
Furthermore, it is ambidextrous and is compatible with the Redi-Mag and the KNS Gen 2 (and Gen 2 Mod 2) Non-Rotating Trigger/Hammer Pins.
Durable Cerakote finish
The Enhanced Battery Assist Lever is precision cast and then coated with an incredibly durable, non-reflective matte Cerakote finish.
vailable in a variety of colors (depending on inventory levels):
Magpul flat dark earth (H-267), Magpul OD green (H-232Q), Magpul foliage green (H-231), Patriort brown (H-226Q), Burnt Bronze (H-148Q), Titanium (H-170Q), RAL8000 (H-8000Q), prison pink (H-141Q), and zombie green (H-168Q). To view more pictures and colors

Product Review from LooseRounds.com
Ever since the magpul BAD lever came out, I loved the concept. It is a great idea. The speed that you gain from manipulating the bolt and being able to lock it back to clear malfunctions or just for administrative was a great thing. But I hate the way
the magpul BAD lever
is made. I know some of the more die hard magpul fans will scream for my blood, but the BAD lever is not well done... That has changed for me, but not with the BAD lever. I still see it as a sub par attempt at a great idea. I am talking about the Tactical Link Enhanced Battery Assist Lever...
Product Review from The Arms Guide
Sometimes it is difficult for me to make up my mind for what accessory I want on my AR-15 over another. However, making the decision on what ambidextrous bolt release lever I wanted to use on my AR-15 (and any future builds) was an easy one. Allow me to introduce the Tactical Link Enhanced Battery Assist Lever (EBAL, or as I like to say it; the ‘e-ball’). The Tactical Link EBAL comes in a variety of colors but the shade I purchased was black. Instead of being an oxide, phosphate or anodized coating, the EBAL is Cerakoted
Two thumbs up!
I have used the Magpul BAD, and while it's a good device, it doesn't compare to the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever. I have this on my M&P15 and will be replacing the Magpul on my Yankee Hill AR immediately. This unit mounts easily and and seems to have a much better lock on the bolt release lever. Get this lever from Tacticallink--you won't regret it!

OK, Not as Advertised
This enhanced battery assist lever is just okay. The original ones may have been "CNC machined from 6061-T6 flat bar stock" per the product video, but mine came in a ripped-open box with a lever that is clearly a die cast part made of some non-ferrous metal that is definitely not aluminum (6061-T6). There is flashing on the edges, mold seams, and plenty of mold ejector pin indents along the entire part.It's heavier than aluminum and it looks cheap with all the ejector pin marks and seam lines. It will not be going on my AR-15. 2-stars because all the parts were in the open (returned?) box.

Best Battery Assist on the market!!!
I originally bought a MagPul BAD for my Sig AR-15 M400 but the MagPul does not fit the M4 platform. I found the Tactical Link Battery Assust Lever and could not be happier. It works great and is by far better in craftsmanship than the MagPul. I'm glad I bought this! Great Product!!! You will not be disappointed.

Great enhancement to my AR. Easy to install and works as designed. Very pleased with this addition. Would be happy to purchase again.

As promised this lever is fantastic. The three screws really help it feel secure not to mention the position of it feels more natural for my index finger to manipulate it. The wider knob on the end is great too, much more grip purchase for your finger. There's no comparison between this and the magpul BAD lever the EBAL is simply better made and it's offered at the same price. Mated perfectly to my SigSauer m400 AR-15

pros and cons
This will not fit an Armalite bolt lever. Great finish and very durable.

I have 2 of these now and one Magpul. The magpul is ho-hum, compared to the Tactical Link. Operation is the same, but the fit & finish of the Tactical Link are outstanding. The additional price paid is worth it in my opinion. Customer service at Tactical Link is great.

Great add on for any shooter!
I picked this up in FDE to match all the furniture on my AR and it looks great. I have both Magpul and Troy's battery assist devices on other AR's and this one is as excellent as they come. It's way above Magpul's design and feels a lot sturdier but I would say is on par with Troy's. I do like the fact that it's contoured better than the other 2. I think the Enhanced Battery Assist Lever is a must have and I plan on picking up more for any future AR's in the wood-works.
