NorthStar’s new 8D battery uses “Thin Plate Pure Lead” construction that allows for a larger reserve capacity, better cranking (with more cold cranking amps), and four times the charging cycle than a typical flooded lead-acid battery. The battery’s low internal resistance helps prevent the plates from sulfating. Also, thanks to the AGM construction, there are no water levels to check or terminals to clean, and the battery can be installed upright or on its side.
