Understanding battery technology with Manbat

Manbat Ltd, the founding battery distribution business within the ECOBAT Technologies Group, has an impressive 36 sqm island site in hall 9 at the inaugural Automechanika Birmingham in June.

“We approach the event with great anticipation and look forward to welcoming visitors from across the aftermarket,” commented Marketing Manager, Myles Pemberton. “On our stand (9K21) they will not only be able to see for themselves the depth of our comprehensive range, which naturally includes high quality batteries and their related accessories and installation tools, but also to speak with our team of power storage experts, all of whom have a wealth of knowledge to share.

“Alongside the activity on our stand, we are also taking part in the seminar programme, which will allow us provide more visitors with the important information they need to meet the aftermarket challenges from developing battery technology.

“The presentation will be made from the Aftermarket Theatre on Thursday 9th at 11:20, where Dave Morgan and John Bentley will explain how the developments in battery technology have directly impacted the technician as the days of a five minute battery change have gone.

“Now the correct battery is imperative, the fitting process can take several hours and the battery needs to be ‘introduced’ into the vehicle’s control systems or drivers could be left stranded. Dave and John will lead technicians through the potential minefield and also show them the business opportunities that a battery testing programme can provide.

“We obviously encourage as many members of the trade to attend the presentation and come to our stand, where we will be delighted to provide them with additional information to help them grow their battery business.”
