You may hide it under the bonnet, but this AGM’s secret will be short-lived

They say you cannot be all things to all people, but Century Yuasa says no one ever said that about its latest offering: the Multi-Purpose AGM Dual Force+ battery.
Utilising advanced Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Technology, the toughest internal lead components and latest design features along with being competitively priced, Century Yuasa says this offering is made for Australian conditions and is set to be one of the most versatile batteries on the market.
In 13 years with Century Yuasa National Marketing Manager, Andrew Bottoms, has overseen the launch of many batteries, but even he admits this battery offers everything you could want from an AGM.
“Built strong for Australia’s harsh environment and tough operating conditions, the Century Dual Force+ AGM Battery is designed to provide superior deep cycling performance and long-lasting dependable starting power for a diverse range of recreational and commercial applications,” Andrew said.
“From 4x4s, recreational vehicles, golf carts, wheelchairs and mobility scooters to marine systems, dual-battery systems and industrial equipment: this battery has such diverse applications: it really is hard to beat.
“It has the ability to deliver steady power with long cycle life that makes the deep cycle battery an ideal solution for a range of both recreational and industrial applications. Deep cycle batteries provide sustained power over extended periods of time and are designed to be repeatedly discharged and recharged.
“It delivers on everything our customers have asked for. Our customers wanted an AGM with under bonnet capabilities. They wanted batteries that can take a beating whether that is towing your tinny over that corrugated dirt road to get to the beach boat ramp or a caravan being towed off road to a remote National Park – and the Dual Force+ delivers.
“Unlike many competitors AGM’s Century’s Dual Force+ is manufactured using a specialist hardwearing Polypropylene case which makes it ideal for use in under bonnet application where heat, fluids and other contaminants can damage products not built to the same specification.
“In the past it was strongly recommended you avoid fitting Deep Cycle AGM batteries under the bonnet of your vehicle as this could void the warranty due to the fuel, oil and other engine lubricants causing damage to the ABS battery casing materials.
“Our reinforced Polypropylene case is a game changer: It assists with heat dispersion, essential for the under bonnet temperatures Aussie 4WDs can get to, along with providing vibration and impact resistance for extreme off-road conditions.
“The product is supplied with twin terminals, a dual warranty and an array of advanced design features to ensure long lasting dependable power.
“Being AGM Technology it also makes it safe for use in cabins and other hard to reach locations. AGM technology acts as a sponge like material to suspend loose electrolyte within highly porous glass fibre mat separators.
“This eliminates the hazards associated with acid spills or leaks, whilst the sealed maintenance free design avoids the need for regular topping-up of electrolyte.
“The Dual Force+ also serves as a cost effective alternative to selected AGM products available in the market place and in many cases delivers improved performance specifications.”
Century Deep Cycle AGM batteries have low internal resistance and low self-discharge rates, enabling faster recharge and longer shelf life.  When fully charged, they can be stored for extended periods of time and conveniently recharged using a range of AGM compatible chargers.
