    Preventing Battery Explosions

    There have been a number of battery explosions recently, involving automotive starter batteries fitted to back-up diesel engine systems (generators).

    Fortunately no-one has been injured.  Investigation by WorkSafe has found that larger ""maintenance free"" batteries with no provision for topping up have been the cause.  The fluid is evaporating due to the combination of high ambient temperatures and high float voltages.

    We, along with WorkSafe are recommending to use batteries that have accessible caps to replenish the water.  Alternatively use VRLA (AGM or Gel) batteries but a temperature compensated charger MUST be used.

    If you would like any more information please contact Tony or Chris.

    Rosco McGlashon Aussie Invader 5R

    We recently gave Rosco a few batteries to help him with his next attempt to break the world land speed record.  This time he is attempting to break 1000mph (1600kph).  Rosco is a really nice bloke and we wish him all the best.

    We are pretty chuffed at the though of some of our batteries helping Rosco get the world record.

    Check out his website http://www.aussieinvader.com/ for lots of interesting info.
