Trojan Battery Co., Santa Fe Springs, Calif., has added the Plus Series to its deep-cycle battery line-up. This new battery series is made up of the T-105 Plus, the T-125 Plus and T-145 Plus models. It is available through Trojan's master distributor network.
“Properly maintaining your battery means achieving maximum performance and long life,” said Christine Johnson, senior marketing manager. “We designed the Plus Series so it's easier for our users to maintain properly for maximum performance.”
The Plus Series includes the SureVent flip-top vent cap system; “max-level” water level indicators in the vent filling wells; and die-cast embedded terminals, which address user needs for easier maintenance and durability in the aerial work platform market. Other features include Trojan's proprietary Maxguard Advanced Design Separator and the exclusive AlphaPlus paste formulation.
The patent-pending SureVent flip-top vent cap system makes opening and closing the vents easy. Unlike the common screw-top caps, SureVent caps flip open and stay attached to the battery cover, preventing users from misplacing or getting dirt on the caps during watering.
Because proper watering helps maximize battery life, Trojan designed the “max-level” water indicator, a built-in “lip” within each vent well. This visible indicator allows precise watering and helps prevent over-watering.
The terminal for the Plus Series is embedded in the hard plastic cover. Die-cast embedded terminals better withstand the heat and stress of the most demanding applications and eliminate terminal breakage.
“We feel that the Plus Series is another example of Trojan's commitment to providing market-leading innovation and solutions to the deep-cycle markets that we serve,” said Dave Godber, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “We spent a lot of time listening to the users of our products, and we are excited that this product line addresses many of their needs and concerns.”
