Transit Batteries

Everyone knows a starting battery will get you going, but transit busses need deep cycle batteries to keep them going. A deep cycle battery bank will power key-off draws like the fare box, signboard, interior lighting, GPS and more. Putting less pressure on your starting battery, eliminating the need for jump-starts due to dead batteries and increasing efficiency. We know reliability and efficiency are important to you, so make sure you’re installing Canada Proof Batteries. 


Heavy Duty Cycle Life

The BULL® has more than four times the Industry Standard for cycling at extreme temperatures. The BULL® exceeds 400 cycles when subjected to rigorous discharge-charge cycles (SAE J2185).

Extreme Cold Cranking Compliance

Designed to start in cold temperatures at low voltage. Complies with Off-Road Machine cold cranking requirements (SAE J930).

Re-Chargeability Performance

Ensures that when the BULL® is left in a discharged state for extended period of time, it will recover acceptance of over 25 amps within 60 minutes.

Vibration Tested

The BULL® will withstand vibration greater than 3.5g at a frequency of 32hz for 6 times longer than standard commercial starting batteries.

Industry-Leading Warranty

Up to 36 Month Free Replacement Warranty.

Battery Equalizers and converters maintain battery balance or "equalization" in predominately 24V systems that require 12 V power. These units can deliver up to 100 amps of continuous 12V current for practically any 12V load ranging from fare boxes, destination boards, two way radios, and transmission controls to engine controls, lighting, heating and air conditioning.

Did you know

The DC power requirements for transit bus applications today are very different than they were only 10 years ago so we must reevaluate and change how we power these vehicles. Transit batteries were originally designed to only start the engine while todays buses are burdened with 12V loads that in many cases continue to operate while the engine is off, this means engine starting batteries are now being cycled while supplying power to these off key loads and traditional starting batteries are failing under this type of use. This requires traditional starting batteries to be upgraded to hybrid or deep cycle batteries that will withstand continuous cycling and in some cases the addition of auxiliary battery banks that will supply the off key loads while ensuring the main batteries are preserved to start the engine.
