New generation of batteries

In 2016, the GP Batteries Company introduces on the market a new generation of rechargeable batteries under the brand names of ReCyko+ and ReCyko+Pro. All these batteries make use of the most up-to-date production technologies and represent a continuation of successful lines of award-winning rechargeable batteries.

The new types provide much better features than the older ones. For example, the EnergyLock technology with a low level of self-discharging, typical for non-rechargeable batteries. Even after being stored for several years, batteries keep enough energy to be immediately used.

The improved class of batteries now has a life-time of 1,500 charging cycles. Even in heavy-duty professional use, these batteries will work properly for several years.
