Stowaway Marine Range

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Get ready for Summer with our Stowaway Marine Range of Starting, Dual Purpose & Cycling batteries

  • Stowaway Marine Cycling


    This range of AGM batteries are different from traditional flooded lead acid batteries because the acid (electrolyte) is held in sponge-like separators. The separators a woven into mat to increase the active surface area and hold the electrolyte on the cells. This allows the battery to operate in any position and can last substantially longer than convential cycling. Suitable for powering additional accessories such as auto-pilot, electric winch/anchor, trim tabs, fridge etc.
  • Stowaway Marine Dual Purpose


    A sealed dual purpose range designed to supply power for boats with one battery bank used for both starting & cycling accommodating additional accessories. Constructed using thicker calcium plates, glass matt separators and a different active material to balance starting ability with cycling to provide adequate dual purpose power.
  • Stowaway Marine Starting

It was Jane and Glenn McGrath’s experience with breast cancer led to the formation of what has become one of Australia’s most respected and recognised charities, the McGrath Foundation.

Because of their experience came the belief that every Australian family experiencing breast cancer should have access to the support of a breast care nurse.

In the last four years, McGrath Foundation has supported over 16,000 Australian families with 77 McGrath Breast Care Nurses nationally, with a McGrath Breast Care Nurse in every state and territory. The Foundation believes 150 McGrath Breast Care Nurses are needed to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer has access to the support of a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.
