Enersys has invested in an expensive gift with its acquisition of Alpha Technologies, as we report in the latest issue of BEST Battery Briefing...

Trojan’s incursion behind lithium lines, following Exide’s example in the US earlier, is another smart move to broaden the business base for lead-battery firms, as we also report.
Meanwhile, China and South Korea continue to cosy up to each other, at least in the batteries business, to take on the rest of the world.
