Exceeding rated capacity. What does it mean for you and your customers?
A battery manufacturer publishes the performance capability in Amp Hours based on the peak reserve capacity, rated in minutes of useable runtime reached during cycle testing. The rated capacity usually is the peak capacity reached by the battery, but not anymore with the introduction of XC2™!
What are you looking at? Energy is being produced above and beyond the rated capacity, but what does that mean for your customer?
- Depth of discharge is reduced, for a given usage pattern, which increases cycle life
- Recharging is now easier.
- Increased cycle life is less cost per charge cycle.
The Trojan produces very little energy over their rated capacity. Which would you rather have?
USB delivers more energy during the time when your customer, whether he knows it or not, wants less depth of discharge during the "prime time" of performance. Less depth of discharge results in longer life. U.S. Battery provides you the best of both worlds, quick cycle up to rated capacity and longer run time in the "Peak Capacity" zone!
