Over the years, Exide batteries have become the driving force in principal economic sectors globally. In many critical sectors batteries are essential to start electrically operated equipment and keep them running in absence of main power. Forklift Trucks in Material Handling applications, Mining Locomotives, Golf Cart, Electric Vehicles, Naval applications - all depend on Exide to fulfil their needs for start-up and motive power.

Exide Traction Batteries are supplied to one of the world's leading OEM Electric Truck Manufacturer in Germany, the country which is Exide's main Traction market after India.

Opportunity Rapid Charge Battery (ORC)

An opportunity rapid charge battery enables the user to charge the battery in between breaks at a high current in order to receive more energy throughput before the battery is put on full charge. The major difference between opportunity rapid charging and opportunity charging is that in case of ORC (opportunity rapid charge), the charging current is considerably higher (maximum of 40% of rated Ah). This allows the user to pump in more energy in a PSOC battery in a short time thus getting a higher energy throughput after every charge while compared to a normal opportunity charged battery.


  • Standard PzS design with round tube positives manufactured with a more robust process.
  • ORC batteries are equipped with more robust negatives which enables the batteries to take full advantage of fast opportunity and normal opportunity charging capabilities.
  • Our ORC is air agitation equipped to maintain cooler battery & better charging capabilities.
  • Comes in bolted connection with thicker flexible cable connectors.
  • Special TPE twin molded post seal to avoid leakage and accommodate all connectors.

Advantages over Conventional Batteries

  • Opportunity Rapid Charge ORC Traction Batteries enables up to two work-shift operation with a single ORC battery.
  • Opportunity charging refers to the new ORC battery system being able to receive partial ‘top-up’ charges several times during a work cycle, if required.
  • ORC battery cells may be recharged intermittently for short periods (15 - 60 minutes) during the operating shifts, at normal current or high current (up to 0.4C Amps), followed by a full normal recharge at end of shift.
  • Replace regular lead-acid traction batteries in same tray size, without adding any ballast.
  • Existing battery charger can be used or a higher rated one up to 0.4C Amps (40A per 100AH) for rapid opportunity charging (15-60 minutes).
  • Extended operating time using a single battery with intermittent opportunity rapid chargers.


Flooded HSP Classic Range Flooded Gen-X Range

Flooded HSP Classic Range

The very popular and ever dependent HSP range has been powering various makes of forklifts for more than two decades. The HSP range is available in BS and DIN range from 58Ah to 841 Ah in BS and 120Ah to 1400Ah in DIN. Available in both British and Continental standards, the HSP range can fit into all the makes of forklifts.

Flooded Gen-X Range

The Exide Gen-X range comes with 15% additional capacity in the same dimensions of the HSP range. The higher diameter of the gauntlet tubes increases the annular volume resulting in increased power. The advance formula of Red lead and Grey oxide used in the positive active material ensures increased power and long life. The Exide Gen-X range of batteries is at the highest technology level and has very high efficiency.

EIL Traction Gel batteries are valve regulated, maintenance free batteries, unlike conventional batteries with liquid electrolyte they have immobilized electrolyte (Gelled sulphuric acid). Instead of a vent plug, a valve is used to regulate the internal gas pressure, preventing the ingress of oxygen from the air and allowing the escape of excess charging gasses. When operating valveregulated leadacid batteries the same safety requirements as for vented cells apply, to protect against hazards from electric current, from explosion of electrolytic gas and - with some limitations - from the corrosive electrolyte. Battery valves should never be removed.

These batteries do not require topping up with distilled or demineralized water.

Bolt-On Connectors

Bolt-On Terminals mark a significant advance over weld-on terminals in all respects. The multiple benefits

  • Imported Bolt-On Terminals with Brass inserts provide better electrical performance.
  • Replacement of connectors, Taken-off or other accessories associated with the battery is easier, less messy and can be accomplished quicker.
  • Bolt-On technology prevents wear and tear of the terminals which was unavoidable in weld-on terminals.
  • Bolt-On pillars are used with imported Technology Grommets which are designed to arrest acid seepage, prevent terminal corrosion and also nullify the effect of plate growth.

Auto fill

Accurate and timely topping up with no Under-watering. Water is lost from the electrolyte primarily through evaporation and electrolysis (gassing) during charging. Due to this water loss, there is a chance of the plate being exposed to air, which over a period of time can lead to hard Sulphate formation on the plate thereby reducing life and capacity.

Auto Fill
Proper topping-up of batteries is essential for maintaining them in perfect health. So far, manual topping-up was the norm. The Auto Fill system changes the parameters, principally Auto Fill ensures -

  • Accurate topping-up with no 'Over-watering' When a battery is over-filled, there is both electrolyte loss because of overflow as well as electrolyte dilution which may develop a leakage path between connectors and ground and messy battery top.
  • 100 % absence of manual labour eliminates human error
  • No chance of contamination 20 % increase in battery life.
  • Automatic topping
    Epoxy Coating Epoxy properties
  • Prevention from leakage current
  • Tough & semi flexible coating (tolerant to substrate expansion and contraction)
  • Highly Resistant, Glossy & Stable
  • Highly resistant even at 200 micron thickness
  • No flaking or cracking
  • Reduced flammability because of thermoset plastic
  • Highly insulated even at 100 micron thickness
  • Cheaper than polyolefin and plastic coating
