U.S. Battery redesigns US 8VGCE XC2

10 August 2016

U.S. Battery has redesigned its popular US 8VGCE XC2 8-volt deep-cycle battery with more amp-hour performance and improved longevity, to provide greater power and reliability.

U.S. Battery’s US 8VGCE XC2 is one of the company’s Group GC8 line of performance 8-volt batteries. "Although the US 8VGCE XC2 was built for economy, it doesn’t lack in performance," the company said. It now offers 110 minutes of runtime at a 56 amp draw, (155 amp-hours at a 20-hour rate) and weighs 60 pounds (27kg).

The US 8VGCE XC2 comes in a durable black polypropylene heat-sealed case with a black top, and features standard bayonet vent caps. It is also available with the company’s SpeedCap= as an added option, and can be ordered with a variety of terminals to match a wide range of wiring options. Built with U.S. Battery's exclusive XC2 Formula and Diamond Plate Technology, "this redesigned 8-volt battery can also reach higher initial rated capacity, and faster cycle up time to full-rated capacity than any other battery in its price range," the company said.

U.S. Battery’s line of 8-volt batteries also includes the US 8VGC XC2 (170 Ah at 20-hr rate, 64-lbs/29-kg), the US 8VGHC XC2 (183 Ah at 20-hr rate, 67-lbs/30-kg) and the company’s 8VGCHATB all-terrain battery (205 Ah at 20-hr rate, 73.2-lbs/33.23-kg).
