Battery has secret of longer life

INCREASED recharge capability and longer service life are claimed for a replacement battery from German firm Varta.

The Blue Dynamic range is built using a new alloy which increases recharge capability after long periods of inactivity, says Varta. Longer service life is achieved by protecting the positive plates with microporous envelope separators. According to Varta, this reduces the risk of premature short circuiting.

Flush-fitting carrying handles are incorporated to aid installation, and battery prices start from £41 (01895-838999).
