Heavy Duty 12 Volt Battery
Sealed construction of this 12-volt, 26 amp-hour lead acid battery allows trouble-free, safe operation in any position. No special precautions or shipping containers are required due to its leakproof construction. Under normal operating conditions, between 200 and 1000 charge/discharge cycles can be expected depending upon depth of discharge. The high-impact resistant battery case is made of non-conductive ABS plastic. Produced from highest grade materials with a carefully controlled plate-making process, this compact battery provides excellent output per cell resulting in superior power/volume and power/weight ratios.
