GYS launch ‘THE BEAST’
12V/24V booster pack

GYS have recently launched the STARTPACK PRO 12.24 XL, the most powerful booster pack on the market designed for heavy duty commercial use.

The 'Beast' is fitted with 2 x 50Ah Exide Spiral AGM internal batteries that help the machine deliver a powerful starting current, up to 8500A peak, alongside a cranking current of 3000A and a 1600A starting current.

In addition to exceptionally high power, the unit is equipped with a highly sophisticated protection system, that supplies the exact power required by the battery and prevents the operator from jump-starting a vehicle where the battery is either faulty, there is a short-circuit at the clamps or a voltage selection error.

The cutting-edge technology within the Pro 12.24 XL allows compatibility with ALL battery types including AGM, EFB, Stop Start, Silver/Calcium and Liquid/Lead Acid.

GYS offer a wide range of Battery Chargers, Starters & Boosters which can be viewed clicking the link below.
