Exide Technologies says its Exide RoadForce AGM-200 — a lead-acid battery for heavy-duty and commercial starting applications — offers increased power and enhancements over conventional, flooded group size 31 products. The RoadForce AGM-200 is completely sealed with individual cell safety pressure valves and also is maintenance-free under normal operating conditions, according to the company; the battery provides advanced starting power for high-energy requirements in vehicles, including heavy-duty trucks, buses and farm and construction equipment.
Available in two power levels — 925 cold-cranking amps (CCA)/200 minutes reserve capacity (RC) and 700 CCA/200 RC — the Exide RoadForce is designed with a highly efficient, flat plate absorbed glass mat configuration to make the battery nonspillable under normal operating conditions and capable of being installed in almost any orientation (inverted not recommended). In addition, lab testing has shown that the Exide RoadForce offers twice the cycling life, 12 times more vibration resistance, and a 40 percent greater charge acceptance than conventional flooded group size 31 offerings, according to the company.
Exide says the RoadForce incorporates a number of other features that contribute to the battery’s performance:
The battery — which can be charged by most standard battery chargers and alternators — is made with recycled lead and plastic, and can be recycled at the end of its service life, according to the company. For more information, go to www.exide.com.
