Yuasa YTZ batteries offer unmatched performance from minimum space and weight, with up to 30% more CCA than standard AGM batteries, despite being lighter and more compact. Unlike others, they can also be mounted at extreme angles.
Their secret lies in their use of AGM (Absorbed Glass Matt) separators and superior grid and component design, resulting in improved charge recovery capability from a deeply discharged condition. Additionally, Yuasa YTZ batteries have a longer shelf life, improved life cycle performance, and resistance to extreme vibration. The factory-activated batteries are charged, acid filled, sealed, and activated during manufacture, ensuring a hassle-free installation process.
