 East Penn Manufacturing Company Inc.s Powr MateTM uses four heavy-duty cycle golf car type batteries, in series, to provide a 24 V unit which has an on board, capacity-matched charger. The battery can be plugged into any 15 Amp, 120 Volt AC outlet to eliminate the need for a remote, centralized charging area. The gelled electrolyte battery is spillproof, leakproof and significantly reduces gassing corrosion.

Recently, East Penn and Banner GmbH of Linz, Austria formed a joint venture company, BannerEast PennBattery Services GmbH to enlarge both companies service in North America and Europe.

 The Genesis NP-GET valve-regulated Lead-acid (VRLA) batteries by Enersys are for DC power back up systems that require frequent cycling at high temperatures. The silica gel which immobilizes the electrolyte inside the battery maximizes cycle life and prolongs life in elevated ambient temperatures. The batteries have a lead-calcium-tin alloy in both the positive and negative plate grids, allowing for efficient recharging.
