|The LC-XC1221P from Panasonic is a world leading ultra high capacity long life battery suitable for continuous cyclic usage such as golf buggies & mobility aids/motorised scooters.
Termination is via M5 bolt & nut terminals (bolt & nut supplied with battery).
The battery has the same dimensions as the LC-RD1217P, LC-X1220P & most other 17-18Ah SLA batteries so offers significantly greater capacity in the same package size whilst being a dedicated cyclic battery.
This VRLA battery is an AGM type. Please ensure the correct charger is used to charge the batteries. To extend overall service life of the battery we recommend the four stage microprocessor controlled Battery Fighter range of chargers. For dedicated cyclic use of the battery we recommend chargers models BFP012 for 12 volt systems & the BFP024 for 24 volt systems (use of two batteries in series).
Use of automotive or gel type chargers may shorten battery life and may not fully charge this battery type. Two or three stage VRLA/AGM chargers are acceptable.
Using non cyclic batteries in cyclic applications will result in a shorter service life compared to cyclic design batteries.
Whilst cyclic batteries are made for continuous use, longer overall service life (number of recharges) will be achieved by recharging before the battery goes flat, even if only a small amount of the batteries charge was used. Leaving a lead type battery flat (voltage is to low to drive equipment) for even as little as 24 hours may reduce run time per charge and the overall service life of the battery.
This battery is not recommended for standby applications. For standby use please use models LC-RD1217P or LC-X1220P.
