The new Banner Energy Bull was developed as a special battery for the hobby

and leisure sector. The strengths of this product innovation, available from November

2008 are the exceptional cycle resistance, a better operational safety

and a friendliness to maintain. Banner pursues with a broad Energy Bull assortment

his strategy of being a full-line supplier of lead-acid batteries

Banner recognises that in the hobby and leisure segment, special demands are

made on long-term discharge batteries, such as excellent cyclical resistance and

simple charging. In addition, Banner is aware of the fact that users are seeking easy

maintenance, cost efficiency and a particularly high degree of operational security.

Therefore, in order to meet these needs, the company has further developed and improved

its Energy Bull.

The Energy Bull is a special battery for the hobby and leisure sector. It supplies portable

energy for yachts and boats with electric motors, motor caravans/caravans and

camping. In addition, it can be used for signalling systems, solar panels and in electric


The Energy Bull offers up to three times the cycle resistance of standard starter batteries

and this represents the main characteristic of high quality, long-life discharge

batteries. To this end, in its battery design Banner employs robust grid structures,

special mass compositions and bag separators with a glass web covering.

The labyrinth structure in the battery lid and the use of special screws prevent the

uncontrolled escape of battery acid in the case of powerful vibration and impacts. In

addition, integrated backfire protection and central degassing also help to ensure operational


Grid alloys and additives in the separator furnish a general guarantee for low water

consumption and self-discharge. Markings on the transparent battery casing provide

a constant source of information regarding the ideal acid level and thanks to the easily

unwound screws, battery water can be refilled simply.

the further development of the Energy Bull, we are looking to step up our involvement

in the long-life discharge battery area. We have put all our extensive battery manufacturing

experience into this battery with the aim of meeting increased customer requirements

to the full and I believe we have entirely succeeded.”

The new Energy Bull represents a convincing long-term discharge battery for the
