East Penn Reveals the Deka Intimidator (TM)

East Penn announces the Deka Intimidator (TM), a new high-powered non-spillable Group 34/78 sealed AGM battery.

The Deka Intimidator’s dual purpose capabilities delivers quick starts and plenty of competition-quality accessory power for stereo systems, hydraulic lifts, winches, on-board electronics and many other power demands. Its spillproof and leakproof design enables many installation options while providing added protection for expensive and sensitive electronic equipment.

Designed to resist life-robbing vibration, the Deka Intimidator’s tight-pack plate and separator construction is ideal for tuner cars, off-road vehicles, race cars or any other applications where sealed AGM performance is an advantage. And for a secure fit, with less retrofit, the Deka Intimidator has dual-terminals and a case/cover configuration used by Original Equipment Auto, Van and Truck Manufacturers.

The Deka Intimidator’s flat plate 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, than competing AGM cylinder type batteries, which typically have voids of unused space.

The Deka Intimidator’s technologically superior AGM design lowers resistance, increases power and eliminates acid spills, leaks and terminal corrosion by utilizing highly micro-porous 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 maximum power.
