NorthStar is a global leader in designing, manufacturing and deploying an innovative range of batteries and power solutions. The company was established in 2000 by a group of experts in the lead-acid battery industry, who together hold more than 100 years of experience. NorthStar products are so reliable and cost effective they are used in more than 120 countries.

NorthStar uses innovative Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) thin plate technology to deliver superior performance. AGM batteries differ from flooded lead acid batteries in that the electrolyte is absorbed in glass mats, as opposed to freely flooding the plates.

Very thin glass fibers are woven into a mat to increase surface area enough to hold sufficient electrolyte on the cells for their lifetime. This increased surface area an increased electrolyte are part of why NorthStar AGM batteries have such high energy density. This design also means NorthStar AGM Batteries can be recharged much faster than flooded lead-acid batteries.

NorthStar AGM batteries have a longer expected float life of 12+ years, with high stable voltage delivery. They also have the widest operating temperature range, delivering superior performance at lower temperatures.


No matter what vehicle you drive – from long haul truck to a high speed boat – NorthStar can exceed your expectations.

With the increase in onboard electronics, the battery is playing a more crucial role than ever. We saw that coming when we started out in 2000, which is why we chose to us pure lead in their batteries. Today their innovative AGM thin plate pure lead technology ensures you get the most power out of every battery.

Conventional lead acid batteries use lead alloys with additives which increase the strength so they can withstand handling during the battery making process. The downside of using these alloys and additives is that the batteries suffer from faster corrosion and component aging. Their advanced manufacturing process eliminates the need for these alloys and additives – their pure lead plates can be made thinner and larger, which means more surface area for active material reactions, which increases power density.

This is why NorthStar batteries deliver superior cranking, unrivalled cycling, faster recharge, high vibration resistance, longer life with minimal maintenance and virtually no internal grid growth. Unlike conventional batteries, NorthStar batteries never experience catastrophic failures.

All of their batteries are proudly made in the USA, using the latest automated manufacturing processes and setting a high standard in environmental responsibility. Don’t settle for anything less than the best.

When getting started is critical.

For first responders such as paramedics, police and firefighters, having a dependable engine start battery can save lives. NorthStar First Responder Batteries deliver more starting power and increased reserve capacity to power all on-board electronics.

Built tough. Built to last.

When you drive a heavy duty vehicle, you need a heavy duty battery. Whether it’s a bus, bulldozer, long haul truck, or refrigeration unit, you need a battery that can take the punishment.

NorthStar Heavy Duty Batteries deliver more starting power and increased reserve capacity, with some of the highest CCA ratings in the industry and unrivalled vibration resistance.

Don’t sweat the new anti-idling laws – NorthStar batteries are ideally suited for new vehicles that use Stop Start technology. Don’t take any risks by using other batteries – if you need the best, you need a NorthStar Ultra High Performance battery.

Reduce your total cost of ownership.

NorthStar AGM thin plate pure lead batteries deliver superior cranking, unrivalled cycling, faster recharge and longer lifetime with minimal maintenance.

The NSB AGM 31 delivers 1150 CCA/220 minute reserve and the NSB 8DK delivers 2250 CCA/500 minute reserve with innovative patented design that allows one-person installation.

Their batteries are designed to deliver superior performance, while exceeding conventional battery life expectancies, reducing the overall cost of ownership.

All these world records can’t be wrong.

NorthStar Batteries powered five new world records in the car audio competition circuit last year. That’s got to count for something.Your vehicle is your pride and joy – with all the time and effort you put into it, why would you use an inferior battery?

You want the best. NorthStar AGM thin plate pure lead batteries deliver more starting power and increased reserve capacity to power all on-board electronics.
