Exide Technologies has expanded its Marine & Leisure Equipment Li-Ion range with six new batteries – delivering a product that will complement customers’ active lifestyles.
This new range covers most applications within the marine and leisure market, including boats, caravans and motorhomes, and all offer strong levels of safety, performance and a prolonged lifespan.
Smart heating function for ease-of-use and short recharge times
One of these features is a heating function. Users will no longer need to remove the battery from its original source and store it in a warm location until it’s heated up sufficiently before recharging. Instead, even if the temperature dips as low as -20°C, the battery will heat itself and automatically recharge once the temperature reaches 0°C.
This also keeps the overall recharge time short: from -20°C and with just 10% of power, the battery will take just four hours (one hour of heating) to complete a standard recharge.
Bluetooth function lets customers focus on what’s important
The Bluetooth function runs parallel with Exide’s expanding digitalization strategy.
By downloading the Exide-exclusive ‘M&L Li-Ion Monitor’ app, users will have control of either one or multiple batteries’ key features and performance levels, particularly helpful if batteries are installed in difficult-to-reach places.
In addition, the advanced battery management system (BMS) offers protection against misuse, which further extends life expectancy. BMS alarms are sent to the app and stored, while the user is alerted and can take action immediately.
Exide Senior Product Manager, Guido Scanagatta, said: “We hope this new range inspires our customers as much as the world they’re exploring. Wherever their adventures take them, they can be assured of a powerful, reliable and safe battery, packed with smart technology and user-friendly features.
“From an effective BMS to a convenient heating function, not to mention the capability of accessing their battery data anywhere, anytime, this new range will ensure they can get on with the more enjoyable things in life.”
