East Penn Manufacturing Releases New Deka HydraSaver™ Motive Power Batteries

East Penn Manufacturing introduces the new Deka HydraSaver™ line of extended watering interval and reduced maintenance motive power batteries.

The Deka HydraSaver™ extends watering intervals from the typical 1-2 week period to a 9-10 week period, depending on the severity of the application. Unlike other competitive extended water products that rely primarily on the internal rearrangement of components to increase watering space above the plates, the HydraSaver™ uses different lead alloy combinations and separator material that results in less water consumption.

The Deka HydraSaver™ line covers a wide range of applications and is available in 5 through 33 plate cell sizes, 80 and 120 A.H. per positive plate ratings, and carries the same 5 full-year, 1500 cycle warranty as other Deka premium flat plate products.

The Deka HydraSaver™ includes other standard features to significantly reduce maintenance costs including a water level indicator LED that warns when the battery needs to be watered and flip-top Water Miser ™ vent caps that help extend watering intervals while being easy to open and close. The HydraSaver™ also features bolt on positive and negative terminals and cables, simplifying the process of cable replacement and reduces safety hazards associated with the battery repair procedure. The Deka HydraSaver™ is available with optional factory installed or field retrofitted single point watering systems as specified by the user.

Deka motive power batteries are constructed using the finest quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and have a world-class reputation for their high reliability and superior performance. Through the company’s extensive network of agents across the United States and Canada, maintenance programs can be tailored to meet any user’s specific needs to ensure proper battery care and maintenance. This results in maximum battery performance and life, reducing ownership costs.
