Manbat & NOCO, It’s Genius
Always intent on providing GROUPAUTO G-Truck members with products that allow them to compete as proactively as possible and across as many fronts as they are willing to consider, Manbat is delighted to introduce a brilliant new range of chargers under the highly respected NOCO brand name.
“We are delighted to have agreed a distribution arrangement with NOCO for a range of high quality chargers and battery boosters,” said marketing manager, Myles Pemberton. “NOCO is the premium brand in the US, where their products are the benchmark for performance, reliability and design.
“The charger range consists of several models of various capacities, all naturally with smart charging technology, which means they can remain permanently connected, as once they’ve charged the battery, they are designed to maintain it to ensure it remains in the best possible condition, whatever and wherever the application.
“When it come to those suitable for heavy duty commercial vehicle batteries, it’s the three biggest chargers that will be the most appropriate and these start with the G7200UK, which at 7.2-amps, provides the power required for batteries up to 230Ah in either 12 or 24-volt form. In addition to its immense charge capacity, it also incorporates several specialist charging modes designed to recover severely discharged batteries that will no longer accept a ‘normal’ charge. Next is the G15000UK at 15-amps and finally, comes the GS26000UK at 26-amps, both of which can deal with batteries of up to 500Ah capacity.
“Among their many outstanding features, it’s worth mentioning that these chargers have the ability to remember their last selected operational mode, apply a high-voltage pulse charge when low-voltage, sulphation or lost capacity is detected and are protected against reverse polarity, sparks, overcharging, overcurrent, open-circuits, short-circuits and overheating.
“In addition, they self-adjust the charge based on the ambient temperature, are able to charge the CANBUS system and are suitable for lead-acid, Gel, EFB/AGM and lithium-ion batteries.”
Alongside these new chargers, stands a ‘game changing’ booster pack that rewrites the rulebook when it comes to portable jump starters/power units.
“The NOCO GB30 Genius BOOST sets new standards when it comes to portable power,” Pemberton continues, “and makes it entirely practical for the average motorist to carry a ‘pocket-sized’ jump starter in case of emergency, because incredibly, the GB30, which contains a high density lithium-ion battery, is capable of starting a petrol vehicle with up to a 6.0-litre engine or a 3.0-litre diesel for as many as 20 times on one charge!
“What’s more, it also features spark-proof technology, is reverse polarity protected, holds its charge for a year and fits into the smallest glove box or the seat pocket. Also, as it uses a USB connection, it can charge or be charged from virtually any device: laptop, smartphone, tablet etc. If all this wasn’t enough, it also incorporates an ultra-bright, dual LED flashlight with seven modes including SOS and emergency strobe.”
Manbat currently supplies members with VARTA®, Lucas and Numax batteries for automotive, CV, motorcycle and leisure applications, which makes the addition of the NOCO range a natural fit for members who supply power storage products to both their trade and retail customers.
