Types of Truck Batteries

Wholesale battery suppliers stock a range of commercial vehicle batteries. The two most prominent types of truck batteries include:

  • Flooded Lead Acid (FLA) batteries (wet cell batteries)use led plates and an electrolyte solution to create charge. They are known to be reliable and last several years with proper maintenance.
  • Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries are sealed and usually of an absorbent glass mat (AGM) design. These are preferred over other truck batteries because they are low maintenance and perform better.

A commercial battery is an energy storage system capable of storing large amounts of electricity. Commercial vehicle batteries are vehicle batteries with the higher Amperage per hour, CCA, and reserve capacity needed for larger vehicles like trucks and buses.

Truck batteries, like other commercial vehicle batteries and car batteries, last around 5 years – they have a limited lifespan. They may last longer if used under ideal conditions, but generally, vehicle batteries should be replaced after five years. Trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles are no exception.

Truck batteries are typically not deep cycle.  These types of batteries usually aren’t used in road vehicles because they supply a low amount of steady electricity, unlike conventional batteries. This makes them better suited to golf carts, boats, and electric vehicles than cars and trucks.
