BS Battery

Small Details Make Big Differences

French battery and charger manufacturer BS Battery is into the second year of its relationship with Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties in the United States.

Building on the company's long-standing success with Parts Europe, its US office is now ramping up the service it provides in support of Drag Specialties sales staff and their dealers, with a Florida based facility headed up by ex-Yamaha USA man Frank Pittman as Chief Representative for the Unites States market.

Seen here with LeMans Chairman Paul Langley and new US marketing coordinator Angèle Linard, Frank told AMD that "as we head into the second year our priority continues to be ensuring that Drag Specialties is fully supported, ensuring that its sales executives have everything they need to help dealers engage with the BS Battery brand.

"We are focussing with dealers on our charging station, with product displays and an assembly kit to mount up to two BK20 Smart Chargers. Our R&D told us that dealers, and riders for that matter, appreciate products that pay attention to the details of real-world use and convenience, and this is especially true with chargers.

"It is the small details that make the big differences. Details such as an adaptable charging algorithm which allows them to keep the battery on charge as long as they want, without damage. Details such as a quick connection system - our chargers are delivered with a clamp set and fused ring terminals, and additional features such as an auto-detect for acid and lithium technology internal overheat protection with spark free connection to eliminate reverse polarity and short circuit."

BS Battery's BK20 (6V & 12V - 2A) has been developed mainly for professionals in authorized dealership and independent custom shop environments (and multi-bike consumers). It offers three channels of charge with different voltages and chemistries simultaneously, including a reconditioning function.

At the top-of-the-range, the ergonomic BS30 (12V - 3A) comes complete with a multi-axis hook. BS Battery provides three models altogether, all with the latest market appropriate certifications and approvals.
