U.S. Battery Manufacturing Donates $2500 To Carting For A Cause

U.S. Battery Manufacturing donated $2500 to Carting For A Cause on May 26th, at the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center in Yorktown, Virginia, right after the charitable organization completed a 3,900 mile golf cart trip across the country. U.S. Battery Manufacturing executives Don Wallace, Executive VP, Sales and Marketing, and Ron Anderson, Executive VP California, met up with members of the Carting For A Cause team to present the check.

The donation from U.S. Battery Manufacturing was made up of employee and corporate donations in hopes it would help Carting For A Cause achieve its goal to raise $50,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. In addition, U.S. Battery Manufacturing was the exclusive battery sponsor, donating eight sets of its US 145 XC-2™ deep-cycle golf-car batteries that powered the Carting For A Cause golf cart during its long coast to coast journey.

“It was an honor to work with a great group of volunteer, retired, and off-duty U.S. Coast Guard members who made up the Carting For A Cause team,” said Wallace. “By supplying them with the industry’s best deep-cycle golf cart batteries, the CFAC team had no problem making their cross country trip, and we’re proud we were able to help make it happen.”

U.S. Battery manufactures a variety of deep-cycle batteries that are all manufactured in the U.S.A. and are distributed worldwide. For more information, contact U.S. Battery Manufacturing, 1675 Sampson Ave. Corona, CA 92879. (800) 695-0945. Visit www.usbattery.com.

U.S. Battery Manufacturing Sponsors The 17th Annual Bulls Only Dorado Fishing Tournament

U.S. Battery is sponsoring the Bulls Only Dorado Fishing Tournament, held in Punta Chivato, Baja California Sur, Mexico, June 21st through the 23rd. Now in its 17th year, the tournament has become extremely popular and brings in contestants from around the world to fish for the biggest Dorado (aka Mahi-Mahi) that is found in the ocean near this scenic town. “One of the reasons we enjoy sponsoring this event, is because most of the residents of Punta Chivato run on solar power and use U.S. Battery products,” says Don Wallace, VP U.S. Battery CMO/ Executive VP, Sales and Marketing. Aside from being one of the most popular areas for Dorado fishing, and host of this popular tournament, Punta Chivato is a small community off the Sea of Cortez that has approximately 125 homes that are all on solar power. “Most all of the homes in this town use U.S. Battery deep-cycle batteries,” says Pamela Oxley, representative for the Bulls Only Dorado Fishing Tournament. “Many of us have been customers of U.S. Battery for more than 20-years, and the company has also been one of our tournament’s most valued sponsors.”

Communities like Punta Chivato utilize U.S. Battery RE Series deep-cycle batteries, because they are designed to take the abuse of grueling deep discharge-recharge cycles every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery RE-Series batteries feature the company’s exclusive Diamond Plate technology that allows the use of highly efficient, synthetic tetrabasic lead sulfate (TTBLS), crystal structures. U.S. Battery’s improvement in plate structure with synthetic TTBLS results in enhanced performance, charging, and life of the battery over any other on the market. “Our Diamond Plate Xtreme Capacity technology provides higher peak capacity, improved watt-hours per liter and watt-hours per kilogram,” says Wallace. “The features we put into our RE series batteries enhance recharge-ability with improved cycle life that solar powered homes like those in Punta Chivato depend on every day.”

In addition to Diamond Plate technology, U.S. Battery’s RE-Series deep-cycle batteries include Defender™ moss shields. These shields effectively prevent the formation of “mossing shorts” caused when positive active material particles dislodge from the plates, collect at the top of the cell elements, and cause a short circuit. In addition, U.S. Battery RE-Series products utilize an Outside Positive (OSP™) battery design, which mitigates the effects of positive plate deterioration and further increases battery life, capacity and stable performance over the life of the battery. With reliable, long-lasting power from U.S. Battery, the town of Punta Chivato is looking forward to another successful fishing tournament. According to Oxley, the tournament raises money to support many charities. Some of these include local boarding schools, a veterinary clinic, a home for the elderly, and a scholarship program for local students.

U.S. Battery Manufacturing Expands Its Manufacturing And Distribution Plant In Augusta, Georgia

U.S. Battery is currently expanding its manufacturing and distribution plant in Augusta, Georgia, due to increased growth for deep-cycle batteries within the region. As the leading deep-cycle battery manufacturer, the expansion will help the company meet higher production needs and faster delivery times necessary to maintain the superior customer service levels its extensive customer base currently enjoys. “We have increased this plant’s floor space by 35 percent,” says Terry Agrelius, President and CEO of U.S. Battery Manufacturing Company. “The added capacity in production and warehousing were necessary to meet the growing demands for U.S. Battery products within our varied worldwide marketplaces.”

According to Agrelius, U.S. Battery has experienced a 30 percent growth in the golf car, sweeper scrubber, renewable energy, AWP, and recreational markets. Much of the success is attributed to the fact that U.S. Battery products consistently exceed performance expectations, especially when compared to other battery manufacturers.  “Our worldwide customer base continues to grow at a rapid rate despite the economic challenges currently experienced within the global market,” says Agrelius. “U.S. Battery customers have come to rely upon the history of consistently high quality products and long standing integrity, which began with the company’s founder John E. Anderson. Our current management team has kept up with Anderson’s philosophy, and it remains at the forefront of all our business decisions.”

The plant expansion has also brought with it a 38 percent growth in the employee base. “Making sure our products are custom made in the U.S.A is an important part of our business,” says Don Wallace, U.S. Battery CMO/ Executive VP, Sales and Marketing. “This expansion not only increases production and distribution, but also helps provide additional jobs for the local economy.” U.S. Battery manufactures a variety of deep-cycle batteries that are all manufactured in the U.S.A. and are distributed worldwide.

Carting For A Cause Team Sets Off On A Historic Cross Country Golf Cart Ride

Dwayne Porter and Ron Anderson of U.S. Battery Manufacturing (far left) meet up with the Carting For A Cause team in Petaluma, California.

The Carting For A Cause crew set out for it’s first leg of a cross country trip in a golf cart powered and sponsored by U.S. Battery. Ron Anderson and Dwayne Porter from U.S. Battery, met up with the crew at the starting point in Petaluma, California. Carting For A Cause is a group of veteran and off-duty U.S. Coast Guard members who are raising money and to bring awareness to The Wounded Warriors Project. “It was an honor to meet up with them,” says Dwayne Porter, Marketing Manager for U.S. Battery Manufacturing. “They are a great group of people who we are proud to be working with and sponsoring. We plan on meeting up with the team at various stopping points across the country, and make sure they have everything they need to keep moving forward.”

The team began their 4,000 mile journey on April 29th, with a great send-off, and sped off to their first scheduled stop at the VA Hospital in Reno, Nevada. On the second day, however, the team experienced motor failure when climbing the 7,000 foot elevation assent up the Sierra Nevada mountains. Fortunately, the folks at CartBarn in Reno helped get the team a new higher-output motor that will provide better climbing power and lower heat during run times. “We made lots of calls to our network of distributors and dealers to help get them a new motor,” says Porter. “Everyone we spoke with was willing to help and immediately put a great effort in getting the team back on the road as soon as possible.”  Cart Barn installed the new motor and allowed the team to get back on schedule to their next stops at the VFW in Ely, Nevada, through Utah and on to the VFW in Grand Junction, Colorado on May 8th.

The Carting For A Cause golf cart is powered by U.S. Battery US145 XC-2™ deep-cycle batteries. These provide the highest initial capacity and cycle life than any other deep-cycle battery on the market. “This is one of the reasons why Carting For A Cause chose our batteries,” says Porter. “Our 6-volt golf-car, deep-cycle batteries will also allow the team to reach their nearly 200 mile-per-day goal.”

Additional photos of the first day launch can be seen on the U.S. Battery Facebook Page.
