SIP Industrial Products says it has been working hard to broaden its range of heavy-duty battery boosters, starters and chargers, with the intention of providing a battery charging unit for every application. Here, the company outlines what it has to offer.
Back in June, at Automechanika Birmingham, SIP announced an anticipated preliminary pre-show launch of some brand new battery chargers and boosters, all of which are manufactured in Switzerland, and the company garnered a significant response. With some large industrial retailers expressing significant interest, SIP is now rolling out its largest SIP Boosting, Charging and Starting range to date. This now includes glovebox-sized battery chargers suitable for home and light trade use, trade garage and workshop starters and chargers designed for prolonged heavy-duty use, and heavy-duty industrial-grade van and truck boosters, designed to keep vehicle fleets operational.
So, what’s new in the company’s expanded range? Firstly, a number of super heavy-duty battery-less capacitor boosters, housed in rugged plastic casings and built with reverse polarity alarms, safety fuses, and ON/OFF switches, as well as high-quality capacitors.
There is also a number of new models in the SIP Pro Booster line, with the company not only expanding its abilities, but also what vehicles and batteries it is able to cater for, offering boost peak rates from 1,600A through to 6,400A, with all models offering integrated LED indicators, accompanying mains fast chargers, heavy-duty cables and claps, and premium Swiss construction.
Elsewhere, there is a selection of hybrid professional battery boosters, which offer huge boosting power, and hybrid AGM technology, which combines AGM and ultra-capacitors to create a ‘best of both’ system across the board. All of these models feature integrated 12V DC output sockets, and reversible hook-up alarm and indication, as well as offering a two year warranty.
The benefits offered by SIP’s new selection of Pro Chargestar units include dual battery voltages for 6V/12V and 12V/24V, plus heavy-duty water and dustresistant components and outer casings, which are perfect for roadside repair, mobile work and more. As an added bonus, these units can fit into gloveboxes with ease.
Across the range, SIP caters for most battery types, including AGM, GEL, VRLA, wet cell, lead acid, calcium, and more. Moreover, the complete range, including all Chargestar and Startmaster models, is designed and manufactured in Europe – primarily Italy and Switzerland – and is built to cooperate with the highest of EU and UK standards.
