The new Bosch M Li-ion battery
for motorcycles, scooters, quads and jet skis is a real powerhouse. Thanks to
its innovative lithium-ion technology, it features just one third of the weight
of comparable lead-acid batteries. Due to the usually pretty high installation
position of batteries in motorised two-wheelers, the particularly lightweight M
Li-ion battery can even reduce the bikes’ centre of gravity thus optimising its
driveability and handling. In addition, the new battery features a deep-cycle
resistance which is up to ten times higher than in case of conventional
batteries. It is particularly vibration-resistant and can be installed in any
position. Thanks to its low self-discharge rate, the lithium-ion battery
maintains its charge up to four times longer thus allowing it to overcome
extended winter breaks without any problems.
On time for the sales launch,
the Bosch M Li-ion battery is available for all common motorised two-wheelers,
quads and jet skis on the market. Using the innovative lithium-ion technology,
Bosch will continue to expand its range of starter batteries in future.
“Lithium-ion technology is an important and driving technology for
electromobility in general,” said Dr. Uwe Thomas, chairman of the Automotive
Aftermarket business division, adding that “With it, Bosch wants to assume a
leading role also in the trade sector in the area of starter batteries.”
With its broad range of
batteries for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, two-wheelers, leisure and
off-highway applications, Bosch is represented on all markets worldwide.
Specifically for the application in passenger cars equipped with start/stop
systems, the Bosch range includes the particularly high-performance EFB and AGM
battery series. The EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) technology has a much higher
deep-cycle resistance compare to conventional starter batteries. For commercial
vehicles, the Bosch range includes the TE series, which is also equipped with
EFB technology. Starter batteries with AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) technology are
the top-power products within the Bosch battery range. Their
charge/discharge-cycle stability is up to four times higher. With their dynamic
recharging and particularly high short-distance stability, AGM batteries even
meet the requirements of passenger cars equipped with start/stop systems,
regenerative braking and numerous electrical comfort functions.
