New Trojan battery to ‘slash’ users’ total cost of ownership
By Leila Steed03 February 2023
Manufacturer Trojan Battery Company is to reveal its latest AES Battery model at the 2023 ARA Rental Show, which will take place later this month in Florida, US.
Available in 6, 8 and 12-volt variations, the new AES Battery is a maintenance-free battery that is suitable for use in floor-cleaning machines, aerial work platforms, material handling units and other equipment types.
It incorporates AGM (absorbent glass mat) technology and offers around 2,500 charging cycles, with no loss of performance even when units are partially charged.
According to the manufacturer, this is double the 1,200 cycles offered by traditional AGM units and means users will be able to “maximize productivity and slash their total cost of ownership”.
Trojan says, “Some traditional AGM batteries must be fully recharged after each cycle to prevent damaging partial state of charge (PSoC) operation.
“That doesn’t always happen, causing sulfation and corrosion, reducing battery life, and requiring frequent replacements.
“The Trojan AES Battery is optimized for PSoC operation with a proprietary additive and Deep-Cycle Series Technology, featuring paste formulations that can withstand daily repeated discharges and operate in PS0C without damage.”
Also featuring a durable design, the AES Battery can be used in temperatures ranging from as low as -40°F (-40°C) to 160°F (71°C). It also offers plug-and-play compatibility with chargers using AGM profiles.
Trojan will showcase the new battery on its ARA stand at Booth 1481, alongside its full range of deep-cycle flooded lead-acid, AGM, gel, lithium-ion and AES batteries.
