Batteries meet tough demands

PLATINUM has launched a range of batteries designed specifically to meet the demands of plant, agricultural and commercial vehicle applications.

The Xtreme range incorporates a number of design features which can withstand tough operating conditions, says Platinum. These include a thick internal plate design, which increases reserve capacity and improve cyclablity.

Use of Lead Antimony and Calcium Hybrid Alloys also allows the battery to cope with heavy discharges. Another feature includes a Plate-Lock system which reduces vibration and, as a result, extend the service life of the battery (01827-288555 www.platinumbatteries.com).
