Panasonic MSE Battery Delivers VRLA Batteries

October 09, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Panasonic USA's (Secaucus, NJ) new Panasonic MSE Battery business unit is now delivering valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries that are guaranteed by the company to provide high-quality back-up power for telecom communications systems worldwide.

The Panasonic MSE Battery unit offers products with a long 13- to 15-year life span, that simplify installation for network operators and require little to no maintenance. Panasonic also guarantees its products by offering a 10-year full warranty – the first of its kind in the industry.

"When it comes to the life span of VRLA batteries, industry players have over-promised and under-delivered, quoting unrealistic life spans while often delivering batteries that didn’t even work on arrival," said Keith Jungerman, Panasonic’s MSE Battery business unit manager. "While other companies promise 10-year to 20-year life spans for their batteries, but only back this claim up with a two-year full warranty, Panasonic stands by the quality of its batteries by delivering a 10-year full warranty with our MSE products."
