Helping save batteries during lock-down

As Australia continues its battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, ANBI Switch sales have reportedly surged as motorists recognise the benefits of installing a battery isolator to protect against flat batteries.
“During the pandemic, the RACV has reported a spike in call-outs to jump-start cars and replace batteries across Victoria,” said Theo Brown, the designer and general manager of Digital Pulse Systems and the inventor of the ANBI Switch.
The combination of the cold weather and the reduced use of vehicles during travel restrictions is thought to be behind the surge.
“The RACV recorded a 17 percent increase in demand for battery relates services in May, on the same period last year,” Theo said.
“But fitting and installing an ANBI Switch can help your customers avoid a flat battery.”
Designed and manufactured in Australia to international automotive specifications and standards, the ANBI negative battery isolator switch eliminates drainage of stored power by isolating the battery from power-hungry components like clocks, and general energy leakage.
“The ANBI Switch is suitable for a broad range of applications including automotive, marine, caravans, motorcycles, agricultural and industrial equipment,” Theo said.
“Installation is quick and easy and can be completed in less than 15 minutes.”

Theo says the ANBI Switch also provides automotive workshops, tyre dealers and automotive electricians with an additional source of revenue that will improve profitability and increase customer satisfaction.
For workshops looking to increase customer spend at the counter, the ANBI Switch is a great impulse buy, which Theo says is helping many workshops drive profitability.
“Many workshops set a conservative target to sell six Multi-Purpose ANBI Switches per week,” Theo said.
“Based on that they stand to increase nett profit by $5,148 annually.
“The ANBI Switch is a great addition to any workshop and keeping the ANBI Switch in stock and recommending it to customers who have vehicles sitting idle for extended periods, is a fantastic way to increase the profitability of your business.”
