Gen5 TB60

Advanced Lithium-ion Battery

The TB60 Advanced Lithium-ion Battery addresses the challenges of lead-acid and NiCad battery technology. Offering on-condition maintenance, the TB60 eliminates expensive battery maintenance, frequent capacity checks and low-voltage operational delays. Its intelligent battery system delivers reliable and accurate state-of-charge and state-of-health data. The TB60 weighs up to 60% less, and delivers more amps per pound, than any other battery. This translates into more power for engine starts, more energy for emergency and back-up power, ultra-fast recharge and much longer life. View all Lithium-ion Batteries Request Pricing
