Exide Technologies Launches Two New Batteries

Premium Power Products for Heavy-Duty, Commercial, Marine and Specialty Markets

Designed with original equipment quality, the Exide MegaCycle(TM) AGM-200 is a lead-acid battery for heavy-duty, commercial, marine and specialty commercial applications. Exide's newest products offer increased power and enhancements over conventional, flooded group size 31 products.

The MegaCycle(TM) AGM-200 provides advanced deep cycle or starting power for high energy requirements in larger marine vessels, recreational vehicles and for other specialty applications including low-riders, mobility equipment and sump pumps.

THe battery is completely sealed with individual cell safety pressure valves and both are maintenance-free under normal operating conditions. Available in two power levels -- 925 cold-cranking amps (CCA)/200 minutes reserve capacity (RC) and 700 CCA/200 RC, the MegaCycle(TM) AGM-200 feature a highly efficient, flat plate absorbed glass mat (AGM) configuration. This advanced AGM technology makes them non-spillable under normal operating conditions and capable of being installed in almost any orientation (inverted not recommended). In addition, the batteries offer twice the cycling life, twelve times more vibration resistance, a 40 percent greater charge acceptance than conventional flooded group size 31 offerings. (Claims based on lab testing XMC-31/MegaCycle(TM) vs. conventional flooded 31 product). As soon a these two batteries are available, we will list them.

6 volt batteries connected in series is the preferred method of achieving a 12volt 225AH house bank

avoiding the parallel connection issues.

Using the same foot print as the Trojan T105 and Endurant R220, the Toyama Hybrid is a

direct replacement. Even though it is sealed, the charging voltages are compatible with

the traditional flooded units avoiding any further modifications. The Toyama/ Synergy 6/225 is now

in stock and are proving to be really popular. Read about Hybrids
