What Makes NorthStar Unique?
NorthStar products are designed to be ultra-high performance and premium quality, with a much longer lifetime than standard products. This reduces the impact on the environment, as well as reducing the total cost of operation, due to less downtime, lower battery replacement and fewer maintenance visits.
Pure Lead Technology
Pure Lead Technology is the latest breakthrough in battery performance technology. Our NSB Red Battery™ range uses pure lead positive plates to provide exceptionally long battery lifetime on stable power grids - typically more than 15 years, compared with less than 12 years from standard batteries.
Thin Plate Technology
NorthStar thin plate technology gives our batteries a huge advantage over the competition. Using thin plate construction inside the battery means greater surface area, typically delivering 10-15% better performance.
NorthStar is an industry leaders when it comes to battery cooling technology. Battery performance is strongly affected by environment temperatures: every 10°C increase from the ideal operating temperature of 20°C halves the life of a battery. So at 40°C, a battery that should last 10 years can last only 2.5 years. This drives up replacement costs and severely increases the impact on the environment. Our innovative SiteStar™ Cabinet can keep your batteries at optimal operating temperatures, with energy usage equivalent to a single light bulb. This means electricity savings of up to 95% compared to air-conditioned cabinets, while extending battery lifetime.
