VETUS has introduced a new battery specifically for electric boating.
The VEDC110TC is a group 31 deep cycle / semi-traction battery featuring two different connections, one set of conventional tapered posts and one set of threaded connections for cable lugs.
“The battery is perfect for prolonged cruising on an electric vessel,” explained Stephen Baker, VETUS UK general manager. “The battery is compact, powerful and suitable for heavy use over a long period of time, making it the solution for every boat with electric propulsion.
“In addition, it’s also very suitable as a service battery due to its high CCA value.”
The battery incorporates thicker plates inside to allow for deeper discharging - up to 75% - compared to conventional batteries and can be used for cyclic applications.
Other uses for the new battery include engine or generator starting, powering a bow thruster or anchor windlass, or for powering other onboard equipment such as pumps, fridges, air conditioning or lighting.
The VEDC110TC has a 12V, 110Ah capacity.
