By Euan Youdale16 March 2021

U.S. Battery Manufacturing has launched its new and improved line of AGM Deep Cycle batteries specifically designed to provide increased deep cycling performance. “Our advanced line of AGM Deep-Cycle batteries have features that improve cycling performance and longevity, which makes them a better choice for customers wanting maintenance-free reliable operation,” said Zachary Cox, U.S. Battery vice president of operations.

Updated US Battery AGM Deep Cycle line

The new AGM Deep Cycle batteries will be available from 22 March, with updated features such as the use of thick positive alloy grids for high levels of corrosion resistance, high-density positive active material, and advanced glass mat separators. These components work together to maintain the battery cell structure during deep-cycling, limit acid stratification, and inhibit internal shorts, said the company. 

The batteries also feature a carbon-enhanced negative active material that improves charge acceptance and cycling performance. In addition to being resistant to vibration, fully sealed, and maintenance-free, the new line will also have a new look, featuring a new case and graphics on redesigned labels.

On top of the current 6V, 8V, and 12V models, the product line is also expanding to include new 6V and 12V options. “More of our customers are asking for high-performance deep-cycle batteries that are maintenance-free and cost-effective alternatives to lithium,” said Don Wallace, COO, U.S. Battery. “We’re responding with engineering that delivers the superior performance and reliability needed for modern battery-powered equipment and vehicles.”
