Commercial Battery FAQs
Commercial batteries are used for vehicles like trucks, buses, tractors, earth moving and mining equipment. They are primarily used in the transport, agricultural, mining or earthmoving industries to power large, heavy-duty equipment that needs a whole lot more starting power than a regular automobile.
At R&J Batteries, we refer to commercial batteries as any battery used in a heavy-duty vehicle such as a truck or bus. Most heavy-duty vehicles require one commercial starting battery to crank the engine and power accessories, however some vehicles with refrigeration or lift gates will require a dual battery system with an auxiliary deep cycle battery. Commercial starting batteries are larger, with a higher level of cranking power compared to automotive batteries, and are designed to handle the higher vibrations and harsh elements required by heavy duty applications.
A commercial battery will last as long as its technology is designed for, assuming it is fitted in a suitable application, is maintained properly and is not misused. R&J Batteries supply commercial batteries from world leading brands that have been sourced due to their reliability and excellent battery life. These brands include ACDelco, Delkor, Hardcore, Optima, Fullriver and Predator. R&J Batteries offer a 12 month warranty on most commercial batteries.
Commercial batteries are best stored indoors in a cool, dry location with a recommended temperature of less than 20oC. Fully charge your commercial battery before placing it into storage and check state of charge after around 6-9 months. Call your local R&J Batteries branch to learn more about the best way to store your commercial battery.
