East Penn Introduces the Marine/RV Intimidator® AGM Battery

East Penn Manufacturing has introduced a BCI Group 34 Marine/RV battery to be included in its Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Deka Intimidator® line.

The new Marine/RV Deka Intimidator is specially designed for engine starting and the long deep discharges typical of Marine/RV applications. This completely sealed battery eliminates gas emissions and acid leakage for longer and safer operation. Its leakproof design enables installation next to sensitive electronic equipment.

Designed to resist life-robbing vibration, the Deka Intimidator’s tight-pack plate and separator construction is ideal for the rigors of marine use or extensive RV travel. The Deka Intimidator’s dual-terminals and case/cover configuration provides a secure fit, with less retrofit, to match Original Equipment marine and RV manufacturers.

The Deka Intimidator’s flat place design optimizes efficiency by making full use of the available cube space, which results in more active material and headspace (the space above the cells that retains gasses waiting for recombination). Its complete use of internal cube space ensures a better fit, with less retrofit, while providing maximum power.

The Deka Intimidator’s technologically superior AGM design lowers resistance, increases power and eliminates acid spills, leaks, and terminal corrosion by utilizing highly microporous separators to absorb electrolyte. Eliminating the need to add water, the Deka Intimidator’s flat plate design offers increased efficiency for true maintenance-free performance and intimidating power.
