EnerSys has introduced a new battery that provides 25% greater power output, or 5 Ah, in the same footprint as industry standard 4 Ah batteries. The rechargeable NP5-12 is a sealed lead-acid battery with a high energy density of 1.54 WH/cubic inch at the 2- hour rate and a nominal voltage of 12 V. Available rated capacities for the NP5-12 range from 0.25 A to 10.5 V, 5.0 Ah at the 20 hour rate and from 3.00 A to 9.60 V, 3.0 Ah at the 1 hour rate.
Weighing less than 5 pounds and housed in ABS Resin, the NP5-12 has a life expectancy of up to five years in standby use and up to 1,200 cycles in cyclic use. The battery also features quick disconnect terminals for easy connections.
Because of its sealed construction, the NP5-12 can be operated in any position without the chance of leakage. An optional flame retardant container and cover are available for the NP5-12 to further ensure safety.
