Sealed maintenance-free GEL with extra compressed plate packs | electrolyte immobilized by gel-additive

intAct Bike-Power GEL HVT-HDExtremely vibration-resistant power package


Low self-discharge and particularly high currents make this battery the perfect choice for Harleys and other high-capacity bikes with lots of extra equipment.

Our recommendation for motorcycles with a lot of consuming equipment and powerful engines.

Features

  • Extremely vibration-resistant design

    With plate packs compressed and precisely fitted into the battery housing and the electrolyte immobilized by gel-additive, the grids of the battery are extremely well protected against mechanical damage, for example by the vibrations of large capacity machines.

    Your advantage: The performance remains almost constantly high over the service life.

  • Highest cold start currents

    Motorcycles with many additional consumers, e.g. with seat and grip heating or connected navigation system, require significantly more current. GEL batteries withstand this cycling, i.e. a consuming load, if necessary with recharging with a charger, well. Our intAct Bike-Power GEL HVT-HD brings a high reaction density due to the tightly packed plate packs and thus an untypically high starting power for GEL batteries.

    Your advantage: Even if your bike needs a lot of starting power, you don't have to constantly recharge this battery.

  • Low self-discharge

    The gel-like immobilized electrolyte ensures a lower self-discharge than with flooded or AGM batteries. Great for vehicales in occasional or seasonal use.

    Your advantage: You can leave your bike standing longer without having to charge in between than with an AGM or flooded battery.

Characteristics

  • Perfect for Harleys and other bikes with high-capacity 2-cylinder engines.
  • Highest cold cranking aper: For two-wheelers with high energy requirements, e.g. due to ABS safety technology.
  • Extremely vibration-resistant. Plate packs compressed and precisely fitted into the battery box.
  • Robust housing made of impact-resistant plastic.** For heavy mechanical stress.
  • Leak-proof. Can be installed at an angle because the electrolyte is immobilized by gel-additive.
  • Sealed maintenance-free.
  • Wet charged.
  • Withstands the most severe shocks.
  • Grids safely kept thanks to gel-like immobilized electrolyte.
Recycling efficiency 95 %
Shake proof
mounting angle 90º

What is a motorcycle battery?

A battery that primarily starts the motorcycle. For this, the starter motor needs a lot of power for a short time. Important for this is the cold start power (CCA) that the battery provides, but also the characteristics. A battery with a high current reserve will start the motorcycle even partially charged, for example.
In addition, the motorcycle battery supplies the electrical consumers, since it is the only battery in the motorcycle. The more consumers are installed, especially retrofitted safety or entertainment features, the more capacity is needed so that the consumers are also supplied at idle or when the engine is off or the machine still starts after the consumers have been used.

 

Commissioning

A battery that is not fully charged when installed will not reach its full capacity in the future and will have a significantly shortened service life.

Even factory-filled and charged batteries can lose charge during storage. We recommend that you also fully charge them before installation.

You can find out how to do this in our step-by-step guide to charging your battery.

Maintenance and Care

Absolutely maintenance-free batteries are valve-regulated lead-acid batteries or VRLA batteries (VRLA = Valve Regulated Lead-Acid) that are sealed at the factory. Here, significantly less gas is produced than in wet batteries. The gas produced remains in the circuit of the battery due to gas recombination. As a result, these batteries lose significantly less liquid. They do not need to be topped up, and it is not even possible to do so, as they cannot be opened again without damage.
