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


    Start first time every time with Exide's Marine Starting Batteries. Built rugged to resist impact and rough water vibration - a leading cause of failure in marine batteries. No-Vibe anchor bonded plates in polyethylene envelopes provide superior vibration resistance for an extra long life and reliability. Designed to provide high starting power for outboard & inboard motors with sealed maintenance free Calcium/Calcium technology, with 12 months nationwide warranty.
