One of the most successful traction batteries available. Flooded/wet lead-acid battery. A lot of other companies copy this battery, beware of cheaper imitations.
Engineered to provide rugged durability and outstanding performance, this deep cycle battery is well suited for use in renewable energy systems where lowest life-cycle cost is the key consideration. This battery is part of Trojan’s Signature Line.

CHARGING TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
To the Voltage Reading: Subtract 0.005 volt per cell (VPC) for every 1°C above 25°C or add 0.005 volt per cell for every 1°C below 25°C.
EXPECTED LIFE VS. TEMPERATURE
Chemical reactions internal to the battery are driven by voltage and temperature. The higher the battery temperature, the faster chemical reactions will occur. While higher temperatures can provide improved discharge performance the increased rate of chemical reactions will result in a corresponding loss of battery life. As a rule of thumb, for every 10°C increase in temperature the reaction rate doubles. Thus, a month of operation at 35°C is equivalent in battery life to two months at 25°C. Heat is an enemy of all lead acid batteries, FLA, AGM and gel alike and even small increases in temperature will have a major influence on battery life.
A. The amount of amp-hours (AH) a battery can deliver when discharged at a constant rate at 77°F (25°C) and maintain a voltage above 1.75 V/cell. Capacities are based on peak performance.
B. Dimensions are based on nominal size. Dimensions may vary depending on type of handle or terminal.
C. Dimensions taken from bottom of the battery to the highest point on the battery. Heights may vary depending on type of terminal.
** Additional terminals available.
Trojan’s battery testing procedures adhere to both BCI and IEC test standards.
