The characteristics of the Raylite Ultimate battery read like a pedigree for some technological marvel, not for a traditional lead acid battery. The most recycleable product in South Africa; three times the life of other batteries; completely spill- and leak-proof; delivers 30% more current than conventional batteries ...

It is also the only locally manufactured Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery with Absorbent Glass Matt (AGM) technology, which saw it taking Gold for product innovation at Automechanika SA's Innovation Awards.

AGM Technology immobilises the acid in the battery, resulting in no gas emissions during charging and no acid spillage in case of an accident. This makes the battery spillproof and allows you to install it in virtually any position.

The technology has been specially developed for start/stop vehicles, which switch off automatically every time the vehicle stops in traffic to be more fuel-efficient. However, it has also found its way into other leisure activities, such as caravanning or boating. (360 cycles at 50% DOD (40°C). We have therefore assumed up to 720 cycles at 30°C).

Besides playing a major role in enabling a greener environment, this battery is fully recyclable when it has finally reached the end of its long life.
