Charged by Delta-Q Feature: U.S. Battery Manufacturing


The “Charged by Delta-Q” program was created to build a community for OEMs, battery and BMS manufacturers and facilitate innovation and collaboration among the electric battery, charging and equipment sectors. Partnering with industry-leading battery and battery management systems (BMS) companies will help OEMs reduce the technical risk and time spent researching and testing batteries and chargers to find compatible electric power systems. All battery companies that are part of this program have had their optimized products iteratively tested and validated with Delta-Q chargers. 

We are excited to have U.S. Battery Manufacturing be a part of the launch of our program and bring optimized and compatible solutions to the marketplace alongside Delta-Q. To help our customers and audience learn more about U.S. Battery Manufacturing and their participation in the Charged by Delta-Q program, we interviewed Donald Wallace, Chief Operating Officer.

What makes U.S. Battery Manufacturing stand apart as a battery manufacturer? 

Donald Wallace: Our company has been in business for nearly 100 years in the United States, and from its inception, has worked diligently to deliver the best deep-cycle batteries on the market. Today, industries worldwide choose U.S. Battery products. They provide the most reliable performance and have the highest rated capacity and fastest time to reach full capacity than any other battery on the market. 

What industries does U.S. Battery Manufacturing cater to? 

Donald Wallace: U.S. Battery products are used in various industries worldwide, including golf cars, aerial work platforms, cleaning machines, RV, Marine, access lifts, and cranes. They are also used as renewable energy storage solutions for solar and wind power. 

Why did U.S. Battery join the Charged by Delta-Q program, and what excites you the most about the program? 

Donald Wallace: U.S. Battery and Delta-Q have worked together for many years, helping customers get the most out of their deep-cycle batteries by recommending Delta-Q products and charging algorithms. Over the years, U.S. Battery customers have used Delta-Q chargers with great success. The new “Charged by Delta-Q” program helps to further increase the use of both company’s products to deliver reliable and longer-lasting performance, especially for Original Equipment Manufacturers, as well as rental fleets.

What products are U.S. Battery featuring as part of the “Charged by Delta-Q” program?

Donald Wallace: All U.S. Battery products are optimized for use with Delta-Q’s products, and we are excited to focus on the company’s newest line of AGM deep-cycle batteries for this program. The new AGM batteries feature thicker positive alloy grids, high-density positive active material, advanced glass mat separators, and carbon-enhanced negative active material that improves charge acceptance and cycling performance. As part of the “Charged by Delta-Q program,” this new AGM design will be coupled with the correct charge algorithms and ensure long-lasting and reliable performance for U.S. Battery customers. 

What are the key benefits that OEMs will get by working with U.S. Battery and the “Charged by Delta-Q” program?

Donald Wallace: Original Equipment manufacturers are always looking for the most cost-effective and reliable energy solutions for their products. But even the best batteries will not perform reliably without proper charging and maintenance. Knowing U.S. Battery products are partnered with Delta-Q’s charger will give OEMs the confidence that they’ve selected the best combination of components that will deliver the most reliable power for their vehicles/machinery.

What market trends are U.S. Battery most excited about, and what is the company doing to help OEMs?

Donald Wallace: There is a growing trend of industries re-examining the benefits of lead-acid deep-cycle batteries because of their cost efficiency and as the only sustainable energy source. Because of this, U.S. Battery Manufacturing has found ways to improve the battery efficiency with this chemistry and improve the reliability and cost-effectiveness of its AGM deep-cycle batteries. The trend towards maintenance-free options isn’t new. Still, the company’s redesigned AGM line coupled with Delta-Q products will offer OEMs a unique alternative that is cost-effective, reliable, and can deliver long life with proper charging methods. Combine this with a near 100% recycling rate, and OEMs will also benefit from contributing to a sustainable energy source that is good for the environment.
