Inside Facts
It's what's inside your battery that makes it
live long or wear out quickly.
Inferior insulation weprs out before the
plates do, and reinsulnticn is n cessary.
. Threaded Rubber Insulation c'iminates the
need of reinsulation, maAfcs a battery 4 last much
longer under equal coi.dit itsos, and reduces
' the liability to any other kind of repairs.
It's the one biggest battery improvement in m
ten years—demonstrated nöw by four years of
use.
\
You can't afford not to know about it, for
Mne day you'll need a new battery. ,
Call and let us tell you all about it.
