Trojan Battery Company has introduced the TransPower ST1000 high-performance AGM 31 heavy duty starting battery.
Providing exceptional cranking power of 1000 C.C.A., Trojan's TransPower ST1000 is built specifically for demanding heavy-duty starting applications demanded by the heavy truck market.

The Trojan TransPower ST1000 is a sealed, maintenance-free AGM 31 starting battery engineered for rugged durability, outstanding cranking power and long battery life. Design features that contribute to the TransPower's overall performance and durability include an advanced paste formulation, a heavy-duty plate design and polypropylene case.

"We are excited to be able to offer the heavy duty trucking market this powerful and extremely rugged starting battery. Trojan's TransPower ST1000 is designed precisely to meet the high demands of heavy duty starting applications. Trucks, refrigeration units and commercial vehicles that depend on batteries with superior cranking power will find the TransPower ST1000 to be the highest quality AGM starting truck battery available in the industry today," said Elke Hirschman, vice president of marketing for Trojan Battery.

Advanced Paste Formulation

Battery performance and longevity are influenced by the physical structure of the active material. Delivering high cranking power requires a paste formulation with high porosity characteristics and maximum surface area. Longer battery life requires higher density paste characteristics. The Trojan TransPower ST 1,000 features a high-density paste formulation, which optimizes both density, porosity and surface area achieving the right balance of power and longevity.

Heavy Duty Plate Design

The Trojan TransPower ST1000 is constructed using a heavy-duty 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, Trojan claims. Within the plate design is a grid network constructed with thick wires arranged in a sunburst array architecture. The grid wires are thick wires 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 resulting in 1,000 cold cranking amps. The heavy duty plate design tolerates extreme weather conditions and high under-hood temperatures.

Rugged Polypropylene Case

Trojan's TransPower ST100 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 that is caused by shock and vibration. The polypropylene case is resilient against engine oil, gasoline and other road chemicals.

Adding the TransPower ST1000 to its product portfolio for the heavy duty trucking market, Trojan now offers buyers the convenience of one-stop battery shopping for their heavy duty application needs. The TransPower ST1000 comes with a 36-month warranty in the United States and Canada and is supported through Trojan's global network of master distributors.
