C&D Technologies Introduces the EM-LINE(TM) Easy Maintenance Battery for Motive Power Applications

Blue Bell, PA - May 12, 2005 - C&D Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: CHP), Motive Power Division (MPD), a leading North American producer and marketer of batteries, chargers and monitoring systems for electric industrial vehicles, today announced the introduction of the EM-LINE(TM) battery; a reduced maintenance design, engineered to increase time between watering intervals, even in rigorous industrial lift truck applications. The EM-LINE means simply: Easy Maintenance.

With its increased water storage capacity, the EM-LINE battery can deliver power for three months or longer without watering. Compared to a conventional flooded battery requiring weekly or bi-weekly watering, the EM-line reduces the watering interval from 52 times per year to 4 times, reducing watering and associated maintenance costs.

The EM-LINE battery is designed using proven technology. The principal benefits include:
o Reduce water intervals from weekly/bi-weekly to over 12 weeks
o Reduce maintenance costs >70%
o Reduce labor and decrease the possibility of watering errors
o Utilizes alloys, oxides and other components in common with time-tested C&D flooded batteries
o No special charger required - Ferroresonant or SCR chargers acceptable
o Meets the same footprint and application requirements as conventional 85 and 125 AH batteries
o 5 year warranty

The EM-LINE battery ranges from 12 through 48 Volt in 80 and 120 AH sizes - ideal for replacement of original battery equipment as well as new applications.
