H.M. Cragg Co. Offers Special Warranty with Dual Purchase of C&D Technologies Sageon Power System and msEndur Batteries

Warranty Offer Extended 30 Days Following Overwhelming Response at Upper Midwest Telecoms 44th Telecom Operations Conference (TOC) & Showcase.

Fargo, ND, May 18, 2006 --(PR.com)-- Telecom Operations and Conference and Showcase - www.hmcragg.com – H.M. Cragg Co., the leading provider of quality power solutions including Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS); Standby Batteries & Power Electronics; and Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells, today announced they have extended the dual warranty promotion an extra 30 days for C&D Technologies’ Sageon power system and msEndur batteries following its popularity at the TOC Showcase.

When both power systems are purchased, H.M.

     -eliminates unnecessary costs by providing the optimum plant for each application

     -decreases on-site visits due to remote access monitoring and control capabilities 
     -increases system up-time with on-demand battery testing

The msEndur battery appeals to Telecom plants because of advanced materials such as:
Microporous Absorbed Glass Mat Separators, which
     -facilitate ultra-low float current
     -reduce grid corrosion for a long, usable service life

Proprietary calcium alloys, which
     -minimize positive grid corrosion and growth
     -maximize battery life

Robust thermoplastic container, which
     -enhances product quality
     -improves strength over other container materials
     -increases safe operation flammability rating UL-94:5VB

Highly efficient, proprietary plate processing for

“In addition to the dual warranty offer, we are also awarding 20 percent discount coupons to all telecom executives who engage in a PEM Fuel Cell feasibility briefing with an H.M. Cragg Co. representative,” said Paul Heggestad, President of H.M. Cragg Co.  “We are doing this to continue to build awareness of Fuel Cells as an alternative power source which require little maintenance and emit only heat and water as bi-products.”
