ROAD PRODUCTS Future-proof battery Deltran has announced a new generation of Battery Tender lithium batteries, with a management system that monitors, optimises and protects the battery. The smart system will shut the battery off for protection if it’s over-charged, discharged, short-circuited, overheated or too cold – a one-push reset button then wakes it up. These batteries deliver up to four times the service life of a lead-acid battery at up to 60 per cent lighter, while size is now closer to lead-acid units for easy installation.
