ST1000 starting battery
Jan 17, 2011 7:00 AM
Trojan Battery Company has introduced its new TransPower ST1000, an AGM 31 heavy-duty starting battery. Providing power of 1,000 cold cranking amps, Trojan’s TransPower ST1000 is built specifically for demanding heavy-duty starting applications.
The TransPower ST1000 is a sealed, maintenance-free AGM 31 starting battery engineered for durability, outstanding cranking power, and long battery life. Design features include an advanced paste formulation, a heavy-duty plate design, and polypropylene case.
Battery performance and longevity are influenced by the physical structure of the active material. High cranking power requires a paste formulation with high-porosity characteristics and maximum surface area. Longer battery life requires higher-density paste characteristics. The TransPower ST1000 features a high-density paste formulation that optimizes density, porosity, and surface area, achieving the right balance of power and longevity.
The battery is constructed using a plate design that is thicker than standard starting battery plates. Engineered with a combination of high-density paste and a thick wire grid design, the plate construction delivers nearly double the battery life of a standard flooded starting battery. Within the plate design is a grid network constructed with thick wires arranged in a sunburst array architecture. Grid wires are thick and highly resistant to corrosion, which is a typical failure mode in batteries. The sunburst array guides the battery’s power to a focal point of charge, and the plate design tolerates extreme weather conditions and high under-hood temperatures.
The TransPower ST1000 is packaged in a thick-walled, durable polypropylene case that is rigid to keep the internal components of the battery compressed. This case structure effectively protects the plates from damage caused by shock and vibration. The polypropylene case is resilient against engine oil, gasoline, and road chemicals.
This battery comes with a 36-month warranty in the United States and Canada and is supported through Trojan’s global network of master distributors.
