High capacity batteries
28 July 2008
Yuasa Battery has launched a new series of batteries, designed to meet the modern day demands of cyclic markets such as mobility and electric golf trolleys by offering high capacity and superior performance. The new TEV series batteries feature heavy-duty plates and unique separator systems to deliver double the service of conventional counterparts.
Four batteries are available in the range, all offering 12V output with 18, 21, 26 and 36Ah capacities (20h rate). The TEV series is designed for use in a wide range of mobility applications including wheelchairs, mobility scooters, lawn mowers, golf trolleys and automatic guided vehicles (AGVs). The batteries are also ideal for other cyclic applications such as toy cars, photovoltaics, lighting, sprayers, robots, electric tools, communications equipment, pumps, measuring instruments and magnetic lifts.
TEV series batteries are designed for up to 500 charge/discharge cycles at 75% depth of discharge (DOD), around twice as many cycles as conventional cyclic use batteries. This has been achieved using state-of-the-art plate barrier prevention and unique separator systems to help ensure deep discharge use, considerably prolonging the service life.
Yuasa has also achieved a higher capacity from the same footprint as standard cyclic batteries ensuring superior performance in all cyclic applications. TEV series batteries are valve-regulated and maintenance-free with the battery electrolyte retained solidly in the separator and an innovative gas recombination system allowing minimum gas emissions.
TEV series batteries also feature minimal self-discharge rates - as low as 0.1% per day at 20°C - for extended storage life even after being discharged.
