Exide s StrongPRO battery range is now stronger than ever. A new carbon-based formula of negative active mass enhances the recharge-ability and charge acceptance of StrongPRO EFB+ battery. Additionally, the HVR® (high-vibration-resistant) technology enables StrongPRO EFB+ to pass the extreme vibration tests under the latest European V4 standard.
A more robust and more lasting battery means reduced total service cost for fleet owners and truck drivers, allowing less replacements over vehicle s service life and minimized risk of unexpected and premature battery failure.
The last edition of the European standard was officially released in 2018: Superseding the 2015 edition.
V4 vibration test: A more rigorous test based on 3 axis motion simulates real life conditions. V1-3 tests were based on single axis vibration only.
Endurance test: The current E2 test replaced the previous E4 test for standard lead-acid batteries. This level is more demanding, requiring test batteries to complete at least 150 cycles (at 50% DoD) without any intermediate full recharge.
Exide meets the challenge: Exide s R&D team has worked hard to make the best even better, by developing a completely new HVR® product. Exide was one of the first battery manufacturer to meet the highest V4 standard.
RECOMMENDED TYPE OF VEHICLES / USE CONDITIONS: Long-haul modern/ standard trucks with rear chassis installations and/or «hotel functions», express delivery and city bus.
