NorthStar launches an expanded Reserve Power portfolio with RED and HT RED

As part of the NorthStar philosophy to continuously provide customers with better value and performance, the company has spent the past 2 years pursuing two clearly-defined paths to deliver an enhanced battery portfolio for reliable and unreliable grids.

The first path has focused on cost optimizations without sacrificing performance, while the second has focused on improving the battery’s life expectancy at higher ambient temperatures, while increasing cyclic capabilities.

The NSB RED Battery® is an ideal choice if high temperature is not an issue, but you want long life in the 20⁰ to 35⁰C (68⁰ to 95⁰F) range, regardless of the electric grid quality. It uses NorthStar’s pure lead – long life (TPPL) technology to deliver recharge times of 6 hours from 50% state of charge (SoC) to full charge.

The NSB HT RED Battery® uses NorthStar’s pure lead – high temperature (TPPL-HT) technology to deliver long life of up to 7 years and superior performance at an operating temperature of 40⁰C (104⁰F), regardless of the quality of the electric grid. This is the battery you want for high temperature applications.

For most customers the NSB RED Battery® will still be the preferred choice, providing the optimal balance between performance and price, while the NSB HT RED Battery® will be the battery of choice for more thermally demanding applications.

The NSB BLUE+ Battery® uses NorthStar’s thin plate lead carbon (TPLC) technology that has been optimized for fast recharge and partial state of charge (PSoC) applications. It can be recharged from 50% state of charge to full charge in as little as 3 hours. The NSB Blue+ Battery® design life is 12+ years.

Boasting an exceptional design cycle life of 2,000 cycles to 50% depth of discharge (DoD) at 25ºC (77ºF) with optimum charging, the NSB BLUE+ Battery® is the preferred choice when high cycle life is essential.

All three battery lines will be available to you by the end of Q1 of 2017.
