U.S. Battery Now Offers XC2 Formula in 12-Volt Batteries | Construction News

U.S. Battery Manufacturing, Corona, Calif., has added its exclusive XC2 formulation to its US 24DCXC2, US 27DCXC2, and US 31DCXC2 12-volt heavy-duty batteries. Most commonly used in lift and access, floor machines, RV, and Marine applications, XC2 provides higher initial capacity and higher total energy delivery over the life of a battery. “Most deep-cycle batteries for these applications are designed for light-duty cycling in Marine and RV applications, and not for industrial use,” said Don Wallace, U.S. Battery CMO/executive vice president.

When continually cycled down to 1.75 vpc., U.S. Battery’s 12-volt DC (deep-cycle) battery lasts more than 500 cycles, compared to only 160 cycles on the highest-rated deep-cycle marine battery. “We designed a true deep-cycle product made for heavy cycling, providing optimum performance in industrial applications. Now that we’ve added XC2, the result is an even longer lasting, higher performing battery, that when properly maintained, can save money and operate longer on a full charge,” added Wallace.

 U.S. Battery’s US 24DCXC2, US 27DCXC2, and US 31DCXC2 12-volt heavy-duty batteries also feature extra-heavy-duty connector lugs, a tough polypropylene exterior case, and large carrying handles.

In recent independent testing, U.S. Battery products consistently outperformed competitors’ products in initial capacity, faster cycle-up to rated capacity, exceeding rated capacity, and total energy delivered over a longer life-cycle.  “Third-party testing, conducted without our knowledge, demonstrated that U.S. Battery products with XC2 outperformed our leading competitor in all these categories,” says Wallace.

U.S. Battery's variety of deep-cycle batteries are all manufactured in the U.S.A. and are distributed worldwide.
