Yamaha Selects Trojan’s New Traveler 8V Long-Life Battery for 2014 Electric Vehicle Models

Yamaha Golf-Car Co. will introduce the Traveler™ 8V long-life battery from Trojan Battery Co. in its 2014 lines of electric fleet golf, personal transport and utility vehicles. Trojan’s Traveler 8V is a newly designed, deep-cycle battery which delivers more than 40 percent longer life than traditional 8-volt batteries on the market today.

“I am excited that Yamaha has once again teamed up with Trojan, the leading battery manufacturer in our industry, to offer the new Traveler 8V battery,” said Tom McDonald, president of Yamaha Golf-Car Co. “This 30,000 amp hour battery will now give us the opportunity to offer a solution to a golf course that has exceptionally high amp hour usage, without worrying about replacing batteries before their lease is up. Or as we like to say, ’Don’t let your lease outlive your batteries!’ We look at this as partnering with our customers to give them options on lowering their total cost of operating their golf car fleet.”

The Traveler 8V design includes Trojan’s patent-pending Internal Battery Protection System which features thicker grids, membrane-wrapped plates, and Trojan’s exclusive T2 Technology™ with Maxguard® T2 multi-rib separators. To further extend overall battery life, Traveler 8V also incorporates a moss guard which insulates and protects the top of the battery plates, and features stronger case walls to increase durability. Enhancing battery maintenance, Traveler 8V is compatible with Trojan’s HydroLink™ single-point watering system that can quickly and easily fill a set of batteries in 30 seconds.

“Yamaha is the first industry-leading golf car manufacturer to recognize the technology benefits incorporated into the Traveler™ 8V, and what these benefits offer its fleet golf car and other electric vehicle customers,” said David Godber, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Trojan Battery. “Trojan Battery’s legacy of excellence in engineering and manufacturing innovation remains the cornerstone of our company’s success in the deep-cycle battery industry. After four years of extensive research and development, the Traveler 8V has been introduced as a truly break-through product. It features even more advanced deep-cycle battery technology and longer battery life than Trojan’s current industry-leading technology and cycle life performance. There is simply no comparable deep-cycle battery on the market today.”
