Tips On Making Proper Comparisons
Between Flooded Lead-Acid Batteries
Corona, CA – Purchasing new batteries for your vehicle fleet is never an easy task. Getting the best value depends on the information you have to make the right comparisons. Since not all battery manufacturers utilize the same testing criteria, it’s important to make sure you’re comparing “apples-to-apples” since the ratings and data advertised for one battery manufacturer may not be the under the same testing conditions as the data for another.
U.S. Battery offers this infographic which explains the most common ways in which flooded lead-acid batteries are compared. Ultimately, the best measure of comparison, even between the same manufacturer's brand batteries, can be done by using the battery's run time ratings. Most of the time this can be found in the manufacturer's literature and website. Knowing the current draw of your vehicle or application makes it much easier to select the right batteries that fit your budget and long-term operation goals.
