The government has introduced new legislation that makes it illegal for members of the public to purchase motorcycle batteries that come with a separate acid pack.
Only holders of a valid EPP (Explosives, Precursors & Poisons) will be able to purchase acid separately. These changes are due to the reclassification of sulphuric acid which is now classed as a regulated substance. This applies to all packs of acid that have a concentration of 15% or more. The concentration of acid supplied with Motorcycle batteries is typically 38%.
In order for us to continue selling these batteries to members of the public, we are required to fill and seal the batteries before despatching them.
