MUTLUs mission is to always follow up on the new technology; and use machinery that are designed according to the same principal. MUTLU is producing a Calcium- Silver type battery. This chemical increases the quality by keeping the battery’s life much longer:
- It blocks the decrease of the water inside the battery so the acid remains on the required level for a longer period.
- It prolongs the life of the battery for almost 50% or more because it slows down the internal discharging process.
- The silver reduces the corrosion as well as it improves the performance of the battery in the hot weather.
If the charge indicator of the MUTLU’s battery turns yellow or white this indicates that distilled water should be added and it will extend the life of the battery, unlike other batteries - If the charge indicator appears yellow or white it means that the battery is finished.
