Lead Acid Battery Specifications
Superior American batteries feature PFX Technology, a process utilized by Superior Battery Manufacturing and no other battery manufacture. Highly refined lead, continuous paste mixing technology and high performance separators combine to create a competitive battery, in performance and price. Superior Battery Manufacturing has been manufacturing automotive, marine, commercial, and lawn and garden batteries in the United States since 1983.
Cycle Applications: Limit initial current to 20A. Charge until battery voltage (under charge) reaches 14.4 to 14.7 volts at 68°F (20°C). Hold at 14.4 to 14.7 volts until current drops to under 1A. Battery is fully charged under these conditions, and charger should be disconnected or switched to “float” voltage. "Float" or "Stand-By" Service: Hold battery across constant voltage source of 13.5 to 13.8 volts continuously. When held at this voltage, the battery will seek it’s When held at this voltage, the battery will seek its own current level and maintain itself in a fully charged condition.
Expected Life vs. Temperature
Chemical reactions internal to the battery are driven by voltage and temperature. The higher the battery temperature, the faster chemical reactions will occur. While higher temperatures can provide improved discharge performance the increased rate of chemical reactions will result in a corresponding loss of battery life. As a rule of thumb, for every 10°C increase in temperature the reaction rate doubles. Thus, a month of operation at 35°C is equivalent in battery life to two months at 25°C. Heat is an enemy of all lead acid batteries, FLA, AGM and gel alike and even small increases in temperature will have a major influence on battery life.
