Battery Technical Guide

In recent years, the electrical loads on trucks and buses have increased sharply. Evidence shows that this is leading to a rise in vehicle breakdowns, as batteries are unable to handle the heavier demand, and dissatisfaction from fleet owners and operators, who are seeking to source better-performing batteries as a result. This technical guide is based on an interview with Dr Thomas Verghese, Technical Manager at EnerSys®, in which he explains why this problem is increasing, and describes how a new solution based on advanced Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) battery technology is now available to solve it.
