Exide Technologies Conquers Cold Storage with New Motive Power Battery

Exide Technologies announced today at ProMAT 2019 the launch of its GNB Marathon Subzero battery designed to meet the specific demands of cold-storage applications. GNB Marathon Subzero batteries are durable and outperform conventional batteries in both runtime and lifespan in cold environments (39°F/4°C and below).

“Our customers using GNB Marathon Subzero batteries are experiencing increased runtimes by up to 53 percent, at a temperature of nine degrees Fahrenheit, compared to conventional batteries,” said Ted Becker, President, Exide Americas. “The result of fewer battery changes translates to a higher volume of materials moved per hour, which in turn raises productivity and lowers the total cost of ownership.”

GNB Marathon Subzero is a military-grade engineered battery that was initially designed to withstand the rigors of deep-sea work and to handle the most severe applications in the harshest conditions. Its unique use of Tensor® technology to incorporate copper for negative grid materials, replacing the lead used in conventional batteries, equips Marathon Subzero with enhanced conductivity. This benefit of low-resistance allows for both fast and opportunity charging, making this battery the optimal choice for customers’ cold-storage material handling needs.

GNB Marathon Subzero batteries are currently available in the following popular sizes.

  • 18-125-17 – 990 Ah and 38.31”L x 19.88”W x 30.5”H
  • 12-85-13 – 500 Ah and 30.44”L x 12.96”W x 25.25”H
  • 12-10-13 – 640 Ah and 30.44”L x 12.69”W x 30.75”H
