U.S. Battery teamed up with its distributor Energy Products, to donate two US 31DC XC2 deep-cycle batteries to the Veterans of Foreign War Auxiliary Post #1136 in Wyandotte, Michigan. The 1,300 square-foot hall at the VFW is a chore to keep clean after every event, so Senior Vice Commander Orville Beachamp purchased a refurbished battery-powered floor scrubber. He quickly found out, however, that the batteries wouldn’t hold a new charge. “When we bought the floor scrubber, it had a two-year warranty and a set of batteries,” said Commander Beachamp. “We didn’t know the condition of the batteries or how well they’ve been maintained. After some investigation, we found that the cells were damaged.”
Commander Beachamp contacted U.S. Battery and working with its local distributor Energy Products, they decided to donate two US31DC XC2 12-volt batteries for the VFW’s floor scrubber. “We’re happy to help get their floor scrubber back into action and provide them with the resources they need to keep the VFW spotless for weddings and other community events,” said Don Wallace, U.S. Battery CMO/Executive VP Sales and Marketing. “The VFW does so much for veterans in the area, and the hall is used by the community, making it a place where many memories are made for families and friends.”
The batteries were delivered to Commander Beachamp by Bob Bowman at Energy Products. “Energy Products was very excited and eager to help the veterans that have served in the armed forces for our country,” said Matt Cybulski, Energy Products SLI Sales Manager. “It is always a pleasure to be a part of something so great, and working with U.S. Battery is always an outstanding experience.”
U.S. Battery’s US31DC XC2 deep-cycle battery is a 12-volt, BCI Group Size of 31, deep-cycle battery that features a 20-rate at 130 amps. The battery is a good choice for electric utility vehicles such as floor scrubbers, because they are engineered and proven to provide the fastest cycle-up to full rated capacity, and have the highest total energy delivered over the life of the battery.
