NorthStar Automotive Batteries Outperform the Competition in ‘Torture Tests’

February 11, 2013

SPRINGFIELD, Missouri, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

NorthStar Ultra High Performance Batteries
[http://www.northstarbattery.com/northstar/engine/index.php ] proved to be the best of the
best after outperforming the competition through two brutal ‘torture tests’
[http://www.northstarbattery.com/northstar/engine/news.php ].

The ‘Winch’ and ‘Boombox’ tests were conducted by JP Magazine for their March 2013
issue, using Group 34 size batteries from all of the top manufacturers.

In the ‘Winch’ test, the NorthStar G34M Battery pulled a jeep weighing 6,500 lbsa
distance of 471 ft. That’s almost 100 ft further than the closest competitor battery, made
by Odyssey, which could only manage 382 ft. The Die Hard Platinum managed 352 ft and the
Optima Yellow 307 ft.

In the ‘Boombox’ test, the NorthStar Battery had enough power to run a custom-made 40
amp sound and lighting system for an impressive 95 minutes. Again, the Odyssey could only
last for 92 min, the Optima 84 min and the Die Hard Platinum 81 min.

So if you need to winch yourself out of trouble or run a killer sound system, then
NorthStar is clearly the best choice.

NorthStar’s state-of-the-art battery plant in Missouri, USA, uses the latest automated
manufacturing to produce pure lead positive grid plates. These plates can be made thinner,
which means more can be added into each battery to generate greater surface area,
increasing power density. The plates are inserted under high compression, which also
improves performance characteristics, virtually eliminating life-limiting failures in high
vibration applications. This is why NorthStar batteries can deliver exceptional CCA
ratings and reserve capacity cycling ability, with a longer lifetime and virtually no
internal grid growth.

Don’t settle for anything less – if you need the best, you need a NorthStar Ultra High
Performance Battery.

Established in 2000, NorthStar designs and manufactures premium lead-acid batteries
and energy-saving battery cabinets. NorthStar products are specifically developed for
Telecom Power Systems, Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Engine Start applications – to
provide longer battery life and a reduced environmental impact. The company has
state-of-the-art facilities in the USA, Sweden, China and India, and their products are
used in 120 countries worldwide.
