Trojan Battery Company says its new TransPower ST1000 is a high-performance AGM 31 heavy-duty starting battery with cranking power of 1000 CCA for trucks, refrigeration units, and buses.
It’s a sealed, maintenance-free battery, with design features that include an advanced paste formulation, a heavy-duty plate design, and polypropylene case.
Delivering high cranking power requires a paste formulation with high porosity characteristics and maximum surface area, Trojan explains. Longer battery life requires higher-density paste characteristics like the ST 1000’s.
The heavy-duty plate is said to be thicker than on standard starting batteries, and with its thick wire grid design, the combination delivers nearly double the battery life of a standard flooded starting battery, Trojan claims. The grid wires are thick and highly resistant to corrosion, and the heavy duty plate design is said to tolerate extreme weather conditions and high under-hood temperatures.
The battery’s thick-walled polypropylene case is rigid to keep the internal components of the battery compressed, a structure that protects the plates from damage caused by shock and vibration, says Trojan. It’s also resilient against engine oil, gasoline and other road chemicals.
The TransPower ST1000 comes with a 36-month warranty in the U.S. and Canada.
