The TPBAT12-9 high rate valve regulated sealed lead acid (VRLA) batteries have been developed for long term operation in harsh environments. The small battery uses absorbent glass mat (AGM) technology which provides for unsurpassed reliability over wide temperature ranges. The batteries can be installed in any position without affecting their performance or reliability. The combination of advanced electrode and electrolyte formulations provide higher power output than normal batteries of the same physical size. The TPBAT12-9 has F2 type .25” spade connectors.
