Ratings and Types

Cold Cranking Amps (CCA):

Cold-cranking amps refer to a rating system that defines a battery's ability to start or crank an engine in cold temperatures. A CCA rating will, more than anything, inform you as to how many amps are needed to make sure cold weather does not inhibit your ability to start your engine. To enable buyers the ability to make the optimal battery selection, the CCA rating lets you know the number of amps that are produced by a charged battery during a 30-second period while maintaining at least 7.2 volts at a temperature of 0°F (-18°C).

Reserve Capacity (RC): 

Reserve capacity is simply the time in minutes that a 12V lead-acid battery can sustain a 25 amp load and remain above 10.5 volts. At a high-level reserve, capacity is a more accurate measurement of how long a lead-acid battery will last under a sustained load than its amp-hour rating.

  1. Foldable Handles for ease of handling and installation.
  2. Hydroeye TM indicates state of charge.
  3. Porex Technology, an advance breather system to help prevent pressure build-up inside the battery and helps minimise the risk of explosion from externally generated sparks.
  4. Liquid Gas Separator Design allows recirculation of acid back into the battery reducing the risk of acid starvation.
  5. Advanced Polypropylene Casing, computer controlled heat injected, light weight plastic resin, moulded to improve impact resistance.
  6. Polyethylene Envelope Separators provide enhanced cranking power through minimised electrical resistance and longer life through better puncture and tear resistance.
  7. Proprietary Paste Formulation, developed and designed to deliver more cranking and reserve capacity per gram of active material using controlled processes ensuring longer lasting and consistent high quality plates. For our GoldPlus range we added SNT technology to optimise plate performance through a special mix of Lead-Calcium-Tin alloy and paste additive that helps deliver even more consistent, reliable capacity.
  8. Expanded Lead-Calcium-Tin Grids
    • High density grids to provide superior performance against corrosion and overcharging.
    • Interlocking grid design to provide exceptional active paste material adhesion.
    • Calcium (Ca) alloy to provide very low self-discharge and prevent excessive gassing and thermal runaway plus Tin (Sn) alloy to improve charging capability.
    • For our GoldPlus range, SNT also works with our existing EXG high quality grids to improve corrosion and creep resistance to extend the life of the battery.
