NEW YUASA RANGE FROM BBL BATTERIES

NEW YUASA RANGE FROM BBL BATTERIES

BBL delivers new YUASA YBX Super Heavy Duty battery range for commercial vehicles…

GS Yuasa Battery Europe Ltd have launched their all new Yuasa YBX Super Heavy Duty battery range for commercial vehicles. The four-tiered range is available now and provides one of the most comprehensive and highest specification offers on the market.

Based on the battery manufacturer’s market leading YBX automotive ranges, Yuasa’s new Super Heavy Duty range replaces Yuasa’s Cargo ranges. It features three levels of conventional flooded types, plus Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) options.

Yuasa’s commercial vehicle batteries are already trusted by leading commercial vehicle manufacturers who demand the best and fit GS Yuasa batteries as standard. The new YBX Super Heavy Duty range has been developed to meet the increasing specifications of these top vehicle brands.

Featuring the very latest technology and a host of advanced safety features, all batteries in the range are of Original Equipment (OE) quality and performance. Their advanced construction and unparalleled innovation make them the most reliable commercial vehicle batteries Yuasa has ever produced.

The batteries are among the first in the UK and Ireland to carry EN50342-1/6 European Standard performance markings which were recently introduced. Every battery in the range has undergone extensive performance testing and having passed stringent requirements, has earned a classification number for Water Loss (W1 – W5), Charge Retention (C1 – C2), Vibration Level (V1-V4), Endurance (E1 – E4) or Micro – Cycle performance (M1 – M3).

Batteries in the YBX7000 EFB and YBX5000 ranges feature Yuasa’s XVR Extreme Vibration Resistance. This means that they have a vibration resistance of over eight times V4. V4 is the highest level rating that European standard EN50342 requires. Batteries in these ranges, plus all YBX3000 DIN types, are suitable for rear chassis location fitting.

YBX7000 EFB Series

YBX7000 EFB are the premium choice for high power demands, end of chassis location and are also suitable for vehicles with Start – Stop. Built with EFB technology, they feature an electrolyte mixing device to extend battery life and are ideal for frequent overnight stays where hotel loads are applied. Batteries in the range are sealed maintenance free (SMF) with a sealed lid, have XVR and offer an M1 micro-cycle endurance rating.

YBX5000 Series

YBX5000 batteries are designed for high performance vehicles with high power demands and for regular overnight stays with hotel loads. They have an M1 micro-cycle endurance rating, XVR and are SMF. They are also suitable for end of chassis location.

YBX3000 Series

YBX3000 types are the ideal choice for vehicles with standard power demands and occasional overnight stops. These SMF types have an E2 endurance rating. They also have a superior vibration resistance rating of V3 with DIN types being V4 and suitable for end of chassis location.

YBX1000 Series

YBX1000 types are maintenance free with easy access lid plugs. Designed for vehicles with basic power demands, they have high vibration resistance of V2 and an E2 endurance rating.

For further information on the YUASA YBX Super Heavy Duty Range, please call your local BBL branch…

Solving a customers Camper Van issue and offering some expert advice!

Thank you Mr Winter for your feedback….

“Having visited Bristol branch today at 10:45 I was served by Chris. I gave Chris the details of my issue with my Camper Van and he talked me through the options to resolve the problem. He even gave me a contact of an outside repair company should the problem still remain. I purchase a replacement Battery being a 685 Avon Leisure 12 Volt battery as mine was on its last legs. Chris was very helpful and clearly knowledgeable. BBL batteries should be proud of Chris as a member of the Bristol team. He is a great asset to BBL Batteries. Will use BBL again because of Chris”

Lethal Dangers of Button Batteries

Lethal Dangers of Button Batteries

The small, round, lithium batteries, which are used to power many of the novelty toys and decorative items used over the Christmas & New Year period, can be fatal if swallowed. Parents also need to be aware that as batteries run out, the risks increase when they are replaced, as seemingly dead batteries can be just as dangerous.

One nursery-aged child from the Fylde Coast died last year just hours after swallowing one of the batteries, which can be easily mistaken for a small sweet and only needs to be swallowed, not bitten or damaged in any way, to cause severe harm.

Dr Nicky Bamford, designated doctor for safeguarding at NHS East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group, has urged parents to be extremely careful so their children cannot get hold of the danger devices. She said: “When the battery gets stuck anywhere in the gut it sets up an electrical current while in contact with the lining of the gut”.

“A build-up of caustic soda then burns through the chest and the child begins to bleed. It’s not always easy to spot but it needs to be removed within the first two hours otherwise the damage could be too severe, so it is best to simply make sure children cannot get hold of them in the first place.”

Doctors advise that if a child swallows a button battery, do not wait for symptoms to develop and take them straight to the nearest A&E or dial 999 for an ambulance. Do not let them eat or drink and do not try to make them sick.

Button batteries are found in many household items, such as; small remote controls, watches, hearing aids, novelty toys, thermometers and many other everyday objects.

To help keep children safe:

• Always try to buy toys from reputable retailers
• Educate older children on the dangers and keeping them away from younger siblings
• Keep spare batteries out of reach, preferably in a locked cupboard
• If the battery compartment isn’t secure with a screw, then keep out of reach of children
