American firm EnerSys’ range of DataSafe XE batteries will outperform lithium-ion’s charging temperature range by using ‘Thin Plate Pure’ lead technology, enabling it to work from -40°C to 50°C.

EcoVolt's EcoSmart SLI

EcoVolt Power, lead-acid battery manufacturer, has made the first commercial delivery of its EcoSmart SLI batteries to Energy Battery Group, a distributer in Atlanta, Georgia.

The batteries use patented bridge-and-pier technology to continuously circulate electrolyte around the lead plates, a technique that the company claims will reduce acid stratification and plate degradation, thus lengthening battery life to twice the life of comparable automotive batteries.

Rick Hallock, President and CEO, of Energy Battery Group, said: "While a great deal of attention has been focused on rare earth battery technology, lead-acid batteries will continue to dominate sales of starter batteries for many years to come."
