Exide launches new battery innovations

Exide Technologies, a leading global provider of stored electrical energy solutions, has launched an all-new truck battery, which features a next-generation HVR (high vibration resistance) design, and comes with Carbon Boost, Exide’s smart solution for reduced acid stratification, faster recharge, and increased cycling.

Since AdBlue tanks have been introduced to assist diesel trucks in achieving Euro 6 emissions regulation requirements, many truck makers have moved the battery to the rear chassis, where increased vibrations can cause early battery failures.

Exide’s unique HVR technology is engineered to prevent this, and enabled StrongPRO to pass the extreme V4 vibration tests under the new European EN 50342-1(2015) standard – one of the first batteries on the market to do so. With more starting reliability and longer lifespan, StrongPRO provides the optimal total cost of ownership for your fleet.

Meanwhile, Exide has launched its new motorbike and sport range. This includes new Li-Ion (lithium-ion) batteries, which are ultra-lightweight for faster acceleration and a better riding experience.

These batteries are ideal for seasonal use, come with high cranking capability and target passionate bikers seeking extra battery performance. Exide has experience manufacturing industrial lithium-ion batteries for materials handling, which was vital in bringing Exide Li-Ion to market.

The motorbike and sport range features brand new packaging with a sleek, user-centered design. Product benefits and features are described on the box, and a QR code takes you to a special website with detailed product information – providing a range of benefits for installers and retailers. In addition to Li-Ion, the range includes high-performance GEL, AGM Ready, AGM and Conventional batteries.
