U.S. Battery is sponsoring an effort to raise $50,000 in support of the Wounded Warrior Project, by supplying its US 145 XC-2™ Deep Cycle batteries for a golf cart that will be driven 3,900 miles across the USA. Ray Rehberg and other off-duty military volunteers will be driving the street-legal cart through 13 states at an average speed of 25 miles per hour.

The electric golf cart uses a 48-volt system that requires the use of eight deep cycle 6-volt batteries. “We’re happy and honored to be involved with this unique project,” says Don Wallace, U.S. Battery Executive VP, Sales and Marketing. “Because our US 145 XC-2™ batteries are made for extreme power, extreme longevity, and carry maximum amperage for longer periods of time, it will help the team reach their miles per day goal, which could end up being nearly 200 miles on occasion”.

To accomplish this, U.S. Battery will supply six sets of batteries that will be recharged using multiple QuiQ™ industrial battery chargers donated by Delta-Q Technologies. The QuiQ™ Charger’s reliable on-board design and customized charge algorithm for U.S. Battery make it a good solution to take the power from a portable generator and rapidly put energy into the battery pack.” “With our involvement, the Carting for a Cause team will always have a fresh set of batteries to maximize their travel time,” says Wallace.

The event, scheduled for May 2013, will begin in Petaluma, California. “It’s never been done before,” Rehberg says. “Nobody has ever driven an electric golf cart across America from coast to coast.” Their mission to raise funds, awareness, and support for injured service members will also include stopping at various Veterans of Foreign Wars posts, Disabled American Veterans chapters, American Legions, Veteran’s Hospitals, and other military areas to visit with as many veterans as possible from all military branches.

U.S. Battery’s 145 XC-2™ was chosen because it delivers the highest charge efficiency and the highest percentage of cycle life, (total energy delivery) than standard deep cycle batteries used in golf carts. The batteries measure 10-1/4″L x 7-1/8″W x 11-7/8″H and each delivers 251 amp hours at a 20 hour delivery rate. For more information, contact U.S. Battery 1675 Sampson Ave. Corona, CA 92879.
