Summary of Marine Battery Range
The Shield Powerstation LM Marine range is for use in caravans, motor homes and boats. A varied choice of ampere hour ratings of non-sealed batteries all with convenient carrying handles provides great value for money and impressive deep cycling capability making them ideal for a multitude of leisure applications.
The Shield Powerstation MF Marine range is designed to supply a much lower current over a longer period of time to enable lighting, water pumps and even televisions to operate. The battery has the ability to constantly discharge and recharge to a greater degree, compared to the starter battery during its normal life. This is known as deep cycling. The MF range is Maintenance Free for “fit and forget” ease.
Advanced semi-traction technology • Convenient carrying handles • Featuring a magic eye, enabling easy battery condition check • Manufactured with robust polypropylene case • Standard post & threaded stud terminals • MF Marine - sealed & maintenenance free • Vibration resistant.
The Shield Powerstation ST Semi-Traction battery is uncompromising in its quality and is ideally suited to a diversity of applications. These include utilisation as a portable source for yachts, motorboats and general marine applications.

The batteries in the Sonnenschein dryfit range are compact, versatile and can be used in a wide variety of applications. Dryfit technology consists of closed-system batteries in which the electrolyte is fixed in a gel. This means that no maintenance whatsoever is required throughout the entire service life of the battery. The special advantage of the Sonnenschein dryfit battery lies in the batteries’ suitability for extreme operating conditions and the highest demands on reliability.
The quality Cells we supply are manufactured in world-class factories, all are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Shield Batteries Ltd has facilities to assemble, acid fill and charge batteries at our UK factories. Our dedicated and well-trained workforce work professionally to deliver the highest quality product and workmanship, supplying replacement forklift batteries, fork lift batteries for solar power, forklift battery chargers and more.
The Sterling H, HP and HPX Series are the perfect replacements for many applications including: stand-by power, emergency lighting, phone systems as well as many others. These series utilise Sterling's unique electrolyte suspension system incorporating a microfiber glass mat to retain the maximum amount of electrolyte in the cells. The electrolyte is retained in the separator material and there is no free electrolyte to escape from the cells. The design of this series battery incorporates the very latest oxygen recombination technology to effectively control the generation of gas during normal use. Sterling's unique construction and sealing technique ensures no electrolyte leakage from case or terminals. The batteries are equipped with a simple, safe low pressure venting system which releases gas and automatically reseals should there be a build up of gas within the battery due to severe overcharge.
A revolutionary new battery type, specifically designed for motorcycles, cars, jet-skis, snowmobiles, ATV's, Quads and Micro-light flying. This new battery replaces the existing lead/acid battery, and is based on lithium technology with a minimum 5 years life time expectancy.

Why a Marine battery?
A starter battery is designed to provide a large amount of power in a short space of time to enable starting the engine, and then being quickly recharged. A marine battery on the other hand is designed to store power and release it over a much longer period of time.
Undoubtedly you can use a starter battery for some marine applications but it is unlikely to work very well in the wrong application & will almost certainly fail prematurely.
The Shield Marine range inclued are high quality starter, dual purpose & deep cycle batteries designed for use on the water. A varied choice of ampere hour ratings of sealed & non-sealed batteries all with convenient carrying handles provides great value for money and impressive performance capability making them ideal for a multitude of marine applications.
