Theft of batteries can be detrimental to areas in the world where power is on an unstable grid. C&D rose to the challenge of one customer, by engineering our first anti-theft solution for a partial state of charge operation. Leveraging our AES product line with advanced C&D Nano-Carbon and DCS technology, C&D created an 8V VRLA AGM GC2 size battery with a hardened steel anti-theft bus bar and unique installation method. The non-standard size and voltage, string pattern, and busbar is a triple threat to deter theft.
