A fully-charged battery will perform well in cold weather—it’s when the batteries become severely discharged that fleets will start to see problems.
It is well known that cold weather makes it harder to crank a motor. This, added to the extra loads from heaters and other equipment, can strain heavy-duty vehicle batteries.
Purkeys’ Pack Accelerated Charger (PAC™) can help fleets keep batteries at a good state of charge during cold winter months. This 100 amp continuous charger is compatible with both AGM and flooded cell batteries, and can charge up to eight batteries simultaneously without having to remove them from the vehicle.
The PAC also shows how long it will take batteries to charge, based on voltage and number of batteries being charged, and decreases recharge time, which can be especially nice during winter.
The PAC is a tool that every fleet can benefit from because it keeps batteries charged and trucks on the road.
