Period Look Hard Rubber Batteries

Shield Batteries and our subsidiary, Lincon Batteries, are the last independent manufacturers of batteries left in the UK. The two sites are staffed by craftsmen that still make hard rubber batteries for the classic car market by hand. Virtually every stage of the process, from casting the lead components by hand, to assembling the plates by hand, to fitting and finishing the batteries by hand is a time honoured process and, to our knowledge, not carried out anywhere else.

We can offer a wide range of batteries, both 6 and 12 volt, to suit your classic car and with the open bar finish and hard rubber casing, your pride and joy will have the correct period look in the battery box – albeit with more modern componentry within.
