Honda Recognizes Environmentally Responsible Battery Chargers

    First full line of portable DC battery chargers now available in North

    FERNDALE, Wash., Feb. 24 /CNW/ -- ALTEN Battery Chargers Inc. is pleased
to announce that it has been recognized as an OEM partner with Honda Inc., as
it introduces the first full line of portable DC battery chargers to the North
American market.  Powered by Honda's environmentally responsible, advanced
four-stroke engines, ALTEN's portable battery chargers can save up to four
hours (67%) of time and offer up to 67% savings in fuel over conventional
battery charging methods.
    With over 10,000 battery chargers sold around the world, North America
now has the opportunity to experience the quickest way to bulk charge
    Originally designed for the rugged Australian Outback, by Christie
Engineering, ALTEN's portable battery chargers are used in applications
including mountain-top communication stations, charging batteries in unmanned
lighthouses on the Norwegian coastline, and servicing heavy industrial
equipment with the roughest abuse imaginable.  "As a recognized Honda OEM
partner, you can be assured that clean and reliable DC power supply will be
there when you need it," says ALTEN President Will Huggett.
    Unlike an AC generator paired with a slow plug-in charger, ALTEN Battery
Chargers are a fast and highly efficient way of charging 12, 24 and 48-volt
battery configurations. They can deliver up to 120 Amps per hour of run time
consuming 0.4 gallons of fuel to achieve a 90% bulk charge on a 500 Amp/ Hour
bank of batteries in 2 hours.  Compared to a 3500W AC Generator, running at
full throttle, paired with a 40 Amp plug- in charger, this same charging
scenario would take 6 hours and consume 1.2 gallons of fuel.  As a result
ALTEN's portable battery chargers save fuel (67% savings), save time (four
hours), lower emissions and increase reliability.
    ALTEN, a Pacific Northwest company, offers a range of portable DC powered
battery charger products for the Heavy Industrial, Off-Road, Marine, Security,
and Emergency markets.
