Twin Power 'Shocker' Gel Batteries - "Innovative Design and Affordable Prices"

Twin Power (Tucker Powersports) has introduced new nanogel technology batteries for V-twin and cruiser markets. These new 'Shocker' gel batteries join Twin Power's existing lines of traditional batteries in its 2021 product range.
Twin Power and Biker's Choice Brand Manager James Simonelli says: "Innovative design and an affordable price are what the motorcycle replacement battery market is all about, and these new 'Shocker' nanogel batteries deliver on both."

Also known as VRLA batteries (Valve Regulated Lead Acid), Simonelli explained that "there are numerous advantages to 'Shocker' gel cell batteries - as a design concept they could have been invented especially for motorcycles. The extra thick plates and sealed packaging for the battery cells allow the units to be leak-free, maintenance-free and vibration resistant.
"In addition, riders love the increased cycle life, resistance to sulfation (chemical changes to the battery when it does not receive a full charge), wide operating temperature range and superior cold weather performance. Because of their design, gel cell batteries can be mounted at any angle, which is great for custom bike designers and builders."   
On the inside, the Shocker gel battery's nanogel technology significantly improves performance - increasing the available power from a battery and decreasing the time required to recharge it.
The surface of the electrode is coated nanoparticles. This increases the surface area of the electrode, thereby allowing more current to flow between the electrode and the chemicals inside the battery. This technique increases the efficiency of the battery while reducing the weight.
The shelf life of a battery is increased by using nanomaterials to separate liquids in the battery from the solid electrodes when there is no draw on the battery. This separation prevents the low-level discharge that occurs in a conventional battery.
"On the outside, Twin Power included unique flush-mount battery terminals which provide consistent amperage transfer and eliminate the arcing and corrosion that can affect a traditional-style battery terminal. Shocker batteries feature a robust ABS case with a matte black finish. A unique blue top identifies the gel series batteries."
Twin Power used an independent lab to test the Shocker gel battery line-up for high-rate discharge, ten-hour discharge, vibration, short circuit and cold cranking amps.   
"We've tested the hell out of these batteries in the lab and on the road, and we love their performance," said Simonelli. "This is a true innovation in battery performance for motorcycles and we are really excited to be bringing it to the market. With nanogel technology and an affordable price, the Shocker Gel won't let you down."
Fitments are available in all popular 14, 20 and 32 amp configurations.
