Duracell today announced a line of batteries that address the new power needs of automotive, marine and RV vehicles.
With more electronic devices in these vehicles creating a greater drain
on batteries, today’s consumer demands power solutions that keep them
and their vehicles operating at the highest level. Duracell answers the
call with Duracell AGM with Extreme Power, Duracell EHP Advanced
Generation and Duracell Marine & RV batteries, the company announced
in a news release.
Duracell offers two automotive batteries to suit different needs of
the auto enthusiast – Duracell AGM with Extreme Power and Duracell EHP
Advanced Generation batteries.
Duracell AGM with Extreme Power batteries features Absorbed Glass
Mat Technology (AGM) to deliver two times the durability, dependability
and long-lasting high-performance to withstand the demands of multiple
accessory loads. With this technology, the battery has no free-flowing
acid – special micro-fiber glass mats absorb the acid to prevent
spilling or leakage – making the battery even suitable for extreme
applications like tuner cars and off-road vehicles.
The Duracell EHP Advanced Generation batteries are designed to
safeguard against damaging temperatures that can decrease battery life
to give the driver confidence to start their vehicle in warm or cold
Some of the harshest battery conditions occur with marine use or
extended travel. Duracell Marine & RV batteries have AGM technology
which provides extra protection against wave-pounding vibrations or the
most demanding road conditions during RV travel. The batteries also
safely power electronic accessories (Livewells, GPS systems, hazard
lighting, etc.) and offer passengers peace-of-mind, knowing that their
electronics are powered.
“The ability to use electronic devices in vehicles is expected by
consumers today,” said Bob Jacobs, Duracell marketing director-North
America. “They count on these electronics for added convenience, comfort
and safety in their vehicles. Duracell automotive and marine batteries
deliver the performance that these vehicles need no matter how rough the
roads or seas they travel. These new battery offerings reaffirm
Duracell’s commitment to reliability, performance and technological
innovation and to keeping consumers connected to the devices they need
most at all times.”
These power solutions are available at select Meijer stores in
Illinois, Indiana and Michigan and will be available at all stores in
the beginning of April. They will also be available at West Marine
stores in mid to late February throughout the U.S. and Canada. Visit www.driveduracell.com to learn about the full line of products.
These new batteries are being introduced through Duracell’s
business alliance with East Penn Manufacturing Co. Inc., which was
announced in May. The world’s largest and most modern single-site,
independent battery maker, East Penn Manufacturing makes thousands of
different sizes and types of lead-acid batteries, battery accessories
and wire and cable products for virtually every application.
