Discover’s MIXTECH EMX, MIXTECH EFB and MIXTECH EGM batteries combine the latest electrochemical advancements in battery technology with exclusive and patented 360° acid mixing technology to produce the most significant improvement in performance, reliability and life in starting, lighting and ignition batteries in 50 years.
MIXTECH is a patented technology built into every DISCOVER MIXTECH battery. MIXTECH uses a vehicle’s natural movement to continuously mix the electrolyte inside the battery to eliminate ACID STRATIFICATION. Acid stratification, also known as acid build-up, happens in every lead acid battery when heavier acid settles out of the battery’s electrolyte and builds up at the bottom of the cells. (TABLE 1)
EVERY DISCOVER MIXTECH BATTERY DELIVERS UNIFORM ACID DENSITY, HIGHER SUSTAINED PERFORMANCE AND LONGER LIFE AT A LOWER TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP WHEN COMPARED WITH CONVENTIONAL, EFB OR AGM BATTERIES.
ENHANCED GLASS MAT FLOODED BATTERY
EGM batteries combine 360° electrolyte mixing with Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) technology and the high performance and vibration resistance of valve regulated Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries to produce a far superior Enhanced Glass Mat (EGM) battery without the same dry-out and thermal runaway risks associated with AGM batteries:
- Eliminates acid build up
- Increases material utilization, providing superior sustained performance and life
- Decreases thermal gradients and dramatically improves life in extreme temperature operation
- Has the vibration and cycle life enhancements of highly compressed AGM cells
- Offers significantly improved charge acceptance reducing alternator wear and tear
EGM batteries include Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) replacement market models that meet or exceed the original specifications and performance of conventional, EFB or AGM batteries installed as original in Automotive, Commercial Start-Stop and anti-idle vehicles.
Tested and shown to provide greater than 4x the cycle life of comparable conventional batteries, and greater than 2x the life of replacement market EFB or High Cycle batteries according to OEM TEST STANDARD 75073.7.14. EGM batteries maintain dynamic charge acceptance at a rate of 3x higher than conventional batteries without 360° acid mixing.
EGM batteries have been specifically designed to withstand extreme temperatures, to support power-hungry electrical equipment, and the intensive urban or long distance driving needs of people that rely on vehicles to earn their living. EGM batteries deliver greater reliability, and longer life at a much lower Total Cost of Ownership versus other high quality conventional, EFB & AGM batteries.
ENHANCED FLOODED BATTERY
EFB batteries incorporate 360° acid mixing technology with the latest Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) breakthroughs in lead alloys and unique carbon additives to significantly improve dynamic charge acceptance and cycle life. EFB batteries maintain dynamic charge acceptance greater than 2x better than conventional or EFB batteries without 360° acid mixing (Figure 4 & 5). MIXTECH EFB is tested and shown to provide 3x the cycle life of comparable conventional batteries tested according to OEM TEST STANDARD 75073.7.14. EFB batteries support micro-cycling applications that operate at a partial state of charge and that don’t require the deep cycling characteristics of MIXTECH EGM batteries. MIXTECH EFB batteries are replacement market parts that exceed the OEM performance requirements of EFB and AGM batteries in Start-Stop and anti-idle vehicles with regenerative braking and other powerful fuel-saving features.
PREMIUM FLOODED BATTERY
EMX batteries combine 360° acid mixing technology with expanded metal grids and advanced active materials to produce premium batteries for most conventional modern vehicles equipped with standard accessories. The EMX range includes high capacity OEM replacement market models that meet or exceed original specifications and are excellent for extreme temperature environments. EMX batteries are tested and proven to provide dramatically improved active material utilization, delivering 2x the cycle life of comparable conventional batteries and 1.5x the life of replacement market EFB batteries according to OEM TEST STANDARD 75073.7.14. MIXTECH EMX batteries can be used to replace original equipment EFB and AGM batteries.
