U.S. Battery Offers Durable Deep-Cycle Series

July 12, 2013 by · Comments Off on U.S. Battery Offers Durable Deep-Cycle Series 

U.S. Battery Manufacturing’ deep-cycle RV batteries are designed to withstand the extreme charge and discharge cycles when used in RVs, as well as provide higher initial capacity, performance and longer service life, according to a press release.

With many electronic appliances, stereo systems and other accessories that maintain a high parasitic load on RV batteries, discharge and charging cycles can quickly cut the service life of an ordinary battery. U.S. Battery said its deep-cycle batteries are more efficient and last longer, because of the company’s exclusive XC2 formulation and Diamond Plate Technology. This combination of extremely efficient synthetic tetrabasic lead sulfate crystal structures (TTBLS), allow U.S. Battery’s products to reach peak capacity in fewer cycles, provide higher total energy delivery, and extend battery life.

“RV owners can save money by utilizing a high-performance deep-cycle battery that is more efficient and lasts longer,” says Don Wallace, U.S. Battery CMO/executive vice president. “Our exclusive XC2 formulation enhances battery performance by improving charging efficiency with increased initial and overall capacity.

Wallace said that the batteries are more compatible with a wider range of chargers used in various make and model RVs.

U.S. Battery’s RV deep-cycle batteries are available in 12-volt and 6-volt configurations while the RE Series deep cycle batteries also feature extra heavy-duty connector lugs and a tough polypropylene exterior case.

Duracell Introduces New Batteries to RV Market

December 16, 2009 by · Comments Off on Duracell Introduces New Batteries to RV Market 

Duracell batteriesDuracell today (Dec. 16) announced a line of batteries that address the new power needs of automotive, marine and RV vehicles.

With more electronic devices in these vehicles creating a greater drain on batteries, today’s consumer demands power solutions that keep them and their vehicles operating at the highest level. Duracell answers the call with Duracell AGM with Extreme Power, Duracell EHP Advanced Generation and Duracell Marine & RV batteries, the company announced in a news release. 

Duracell offers two automotive batteries to suit different needs of the auto enthusiast – Duracell AGM with Extreme Power and Duracell EHP Advanced Generation batteries.

  • Duracell AGM with Extreme Power batteries features Absorbed Glass Mat Technology (AGM) to deliver two times the durability, dependability and long-lasting high-performance to withstand the demands of multiple accessory loads. With this technology, the battery has no free-flowing acid — special micro-fiber glass mats absorb the acid to prevent spilling or leakage — making the battery even suitable for extreme applications like tuner cars and off-road vehicles.
  • The Duracell EHP Advanced Generation batteries are designed to safeguard against damaging temperatures that can decrease battery life to give the driver confidence to start their vehicle in warm or cold conditions.

Some of the harshest battery conditions occur with marine use or extended travel. Duracell Marine & RV batteries have AGM technology which provides extra protection against wave-pounding vibrations or the most demanding road conditions during RV travel. The batteries also safely power electronic accessories (Livewells, GPS systems, hazard lighting, etc.) and offer passengers peace-of-mind, knowing that their electronics are powered.

“The ability to use electronic devices in vehicles is expected by consumers today,” said Bob Jacobs, Duracell marketing director-North America. “They count on these electronics for added convenience, comfort and safety in their vehicles. Duracell automotive and marine batteries deliver the performance that these vehicles need no matter how rough the roads or seas they travel. These new battery offerings reaffirm Duracell’s commitment to reliability, performance and technological innovation and to keeping consumers connected to the devices they need most at all times.”

These power solutions are available at select Meijer stores in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan and will be available at all stores in the beginning of April. They will also be available at West Marine stores in mid to late February throughout the U.S. and Canada. Visit to learn about the full line of products.

These new batteries are being introduced through Duracell’s business alliance with East Penn Manufacturing Co. Inc., which was announced in May. The world’s largest and most modern single-site, independent battery maker, East Penn Manufacturing makes thousands of different sizes and types of lead-acid batteries, battery accessories and wire and cable products for virtually every application.
