Motolite continues to keep pace with the global advancement in automotive battery technology as it launches the Excel Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) for start-stop vehicles.

Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) – EXCEL

Motolite, a trusted brand that has been giving quality products and services to Filipino motorists since 1919, now offers a better-priced alternative to imported batteries specifically engineered for vehicles with auto start-stop systems.

But aside from start-stop cars, the Excel EFB can also be used to power ordinary vehicles. If installed in ordinary vehicles, the Excel EFB can last up to 70 percent longer than other automotive batteries.

The release of the Excel EFB is part of Motolite’s commitment to providing battery solutions of all types to Filipino motorists.

Aside from the more common lead-acid batteries, Motolite already introduced batteries for diesel-powered vehicles that need long-lasting performance, the Solar Master batteries for solar installations, the Sea Master batteries for marine vessels, as well as Truck Master industrial batteries for heavy-duty vehicles like trucks and buses among many others.

The Motolite Excel EFB is much more affordable than its imported counterparts, but still guarantees motorists of optimum performance with its German technology and engineering suited for Philippine climate and road conditions.

The Excel EFB is designed to have low-type plates that give more headspace for acid and keep the battery temperature lower, allowing a longer battery life.

It also features enveloped positive plates to prevent deep discharges and thick cast positive plate grids for better resistance against corrosion.

The batteries even have glass mat separators for an improved battery cycle and full-bordered negative plate grids that make it less prone to internal short circuits.

For optimal balance between electrical capacity and endurance, it has a reformulated paste and a special electrolyte additive that prevents shorts due to deep discharges and slows down self-discharge.

Motolite also improved other features like the reinforced upper frame to make it more robust against grid growth and corrosion, and rounded edges to avoid instances of sudden internal short circuits.

Another amazing feature of the Excel EFB is the optimized wire design that lowers electrical resistance and improves current distribution.

Aside from that, the EFB has product-specific container ribs for better resistance to vibration and redesigned element rests for effective channeling of plate residues in the course of battery use.

For vehicle safety, it is important to opt for Motolite batteries that have been tried and tested for many years. Their enhanced batteries prevent short circuits, malfunctions, and corrosion.
