Interstate Batteries Introduces AGM Battery for High-Accessory Vehicles

Late-model vehicles are equipped with numerous electrical accessories, and the MT7 AGM battery is ideal for handling the cranking and reserve power demands of these highly accessorized vehicles.

Today’s high-tech world has gone portable with vehicles equipped with more electronics than ever before and the advent of Start/Stop technology. Interstate Batteries has designed a battery for both today and tomorrow. Known as the No. 1 automotive replacement battery in America, Interstate is meeting the power demand and cranking dependability of these on-the-go consumers with its new MT7 absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery, available this fall in group sizes 34, 65 and 78, said the company.

Late-model vehicles are equipped with numerous electrical accessories, and the MT7 AGM battery is ideal for handling the cranking and reserve power demands of these highly accessorized vehicles. Interstate’s newest AGM battery is ideally suited to accommodate the cycling demands for drivers who plug in additional devices, such as cellphones, backup sensors and GPS navigators.

The new battery features Interstate’s Pure Matrix Power, a 99.99 percent pure, non-alloy lead in ultra-thin plates. The combination of pure lead without the common impurities of alloyed lead and increased surface area of the thinner plates results in a battery that performs at an extremely high level in both cranking the engine and powering electrical accessories over and over again.

“Interstate Batteries continues to be a leader in delivering technology that provides excellence in portable power solutions for the automotive market,” Interstate Batteries CEO Carlos Sepulveda said. “This new battery is an example of our marketing and production professionals spending years analyzing the marketplace portable power needs, and then delivering just the right product to meet those demands.”

According to the company, Interstate’s new battery outperforms conventional batteries, delivering twice the life of most absorbed glass mat batteries and three times the life of flooded batteries. And, as an AGM battery, the MT7 AGM has all the typical AGM benefits: leak proof, vibration resistant, maintenance free and installable at any angle (except upside down).

“Most starting batteries don’t typically discharge deeper than a 10 percent depth of discharge,” said Gale Kimbrough, Interstate Batteries technical services manager. “The MT7 AGM delivers 400 cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge while recharging faster and self-discharging slower than typical AGM batteries, and it performs extremely well in cold weather. A starting battery capable of that many extreme deep cycles is unique in the battery industry.”

Conventional alloy-lead AGM technology batteries have been used for years in motorcycles, automobiles, wheelchairs and backup power supplies, but Interstate Batteries’ new pure-lead MT7 AGM battery exceeds the performance of these products. With an expected battery service life three times that of a conventional start, light, ignition (SLI) battery and twice that of conventional alloy-lead AGM batteries, the Interstate MT7 AGM offers the lowest cost per cycle.

The MT7 AGM battery will be featured at Interstate Batteries’ exhibit area (Booth 3471) during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
