US Battery XC2 REALLY beats Trojan!

You could use any battery in your Golf Car, ScissorLift, RV, or Electric Vehicle.
Will you read this article and ignore the results?

The benefits of US Battery XC2™ include:

  • Highest initial capacity
  • Fastest cycle up to full rated capacity
  • Greatest total energy delivered over the life of the battery
  • Ultimate compatibility with the wide range of chargers currently used
  • in the field
  • High charge efficiency designed to meet the new California Energy
  • Commission regulation for combined charger/battery charge efficiency


122 minutes @ 75 AMP draw 115 minutes @ 75 AMP draw More Reserve CAPACITY!How? (READ ON!)
63 lb. Weight Only 60.1 lb Weight MORE LEAD = more capacity
19 plates per cell Only 17 plates per cell Easier to water, more margin for error in getting the water level correct.
5% Antinium Alloy Blend 4% Antimony Trojan Alloy Antinium™ has no grain boundary, minimizes grid corrosion, extends plate life. More efficient charging due to improved gassing performance.
NEW Diamond Plate Xtreme Capacity™ Technology Paste Trojan still uses a standard TTBLS paste US Battery Proprietary formula uses synthetic(TeTraBasicLeadSulfate): ensures uniform chrystal size, higher conversion efficiency and capacity, PLUS:

  • Higher peak capacity, improved cycle life
  • Improved energy density (watt-hours/Liter), and specific energy (watt-hrs/Kilo)
  • Enhanced recharge-ability; costs less to charge, more receptive to charge in cold temperatures.
  • Fortified plate construction improved; stronger crystal network, decreased shedding of positive plate
Chrystalock™ plate curing Alpha Plus plate curing Optimized crystalline structure of synthetic TTBLS paste for extra life, tribasic lead sulphate for capacity. Trojan’s alpha lead dioxide is formed with high temperature or high pH, neither of which results in any advantage.

The results are clear… US Battery outperforms, outruns, outlasts, and out-classes Trojan!
You could buy a cheaper battery than a US… But then, you’d be buying a cheaper battery wouldn’t you?

    Do you have any information on the life cycle for the US2200 (no. of cycles vs DOD)? The Trojan T-105 claims 1600 cycles at 50% DOD.
    So far, I haven’t been able to find life cycle data on the US2200.

    Two Questions.

    1. how does th US 2000 compare to Lifline Batteries, warrenty,etc. and does US have AGM as Lifeline?

    2. While RV in storage is a tickle charger okay. Wither it be AGM or water. Can it be attached six months or longer?

    Apprecitate response to above email address, thanks.

    Your question, Joe, is a lot like asking me to compare Sugar Free Chocolate Chips to Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips to Milk Chocolate chips… They’re all delicious. But depending upon your desired result, each could be wrong for your particular recipe.

    First question first: US Flooded Batteries to Lifeline Batteries – They are both the Rolls-Royce of their markets. But their markets are different.
    First, the US2000 is a FLOODED 6 volt Deep Cycle Battery with only 216 Ah. The Lifeline GPL-4CT is close to it at 220Ah but thats where the similarities stop.
    The US2000 requires periodic maintenance and watering where the Lifeline doesn’t. The Lifeline comes with an industry-leading 5 year Warranty while the US2000 carries only a 6 month warranty.

    US Battery does carry and AGM 6 volt (USAGM2000) but it is made offshore (Asia), while all Lifeline’s are manufactured in the U.S.A.
    How the US would compare is in the maintenance and ultimate life of the battery. One may be acceptable given its relative low-cost versus higher cost; or One may be better because it’s rated for 1000 cycles (Lifeline) at 50% Depth of Discharge vs. 500-750 (US2000)
    I can’t tell you which is better for YOU – but they’re both stellar batteries in the right application for each.

    As for your trickle charger question: Trickle chargers are always “okay” but never for extended periods of time.

  4. I have qty (16) US 2200 batteries in my solar system. My first set lasted 9 years. Ultimately I had some dead cells and just replaced with exactly the same batteries. My battery supplier was stunned I got this kind of life as he usually recommended the Trojans. I can not comment in cycles as it depends on how deeply you draw the batteries down and how quickly you recharge and equalize. This solar system is used everyday. So 9 years times 365 days is the cycle life when charged at the end of each use with a 15.4 volt equalization charge once a month.
