Yuasa, the UK market leader for vehicle and industrial batteries has announced the launch of its brand new YBX Active® range specially designed for leisure, marine, specialist and garden applications. The new range will be available from 1 April.
Featuring the very latest technology and a host of advanced safety features, every battery in Yuasa’s new YBX Active range is specially designed for Leisure, Marine or Specialist and Garden applications. The range is larger than Yuasa’s previous offer with the introduction of new high-performance types including Enhanced Flooded (EFB) and Absorbed Glass Matt (AGM) technology models for Leisure and Marine.
All batteries in the range have a new, eye-catching label design which is colour coded to their application. Green for Leisure and Marine, blue for Marine and red for Specialist and Garden. Leisure and Marine models also feature the battery’s Watt Hour rating, number of cycles and Marine Cranking Amps as part of the specification information to make it easier for a customer to select the right battery based on their individual requirements.
All YBX Active Leisure and Marine batteries are fully tested and verified by the National Caravan Council (NCC) as part of its Verified Leisure Battery Scheme. The scheme ensures caravan and motorhome users can easily identify which batteries on the market are quoting accurate, verified specifications, and which are not. All NCC verified YBX Active batteries have undergone stringent testing, so users can be confident of high quality, performance and reliability throughout their long service life.
James Hylton, Commercial Director at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd said: “We are excited to launch our new YBX Active range of Leisure and Marine, Marine, and Specialist and Garden batteries.
