Legacy High Performance Battery

The advantages of premium quality materials and engineering know-how are built into every Legacy High Performance battery to give you the most effective capacity and voltage for the long run.

The positive plate of a Legacy High Performance battery features the industry’s most conductive grid structure. That means there’s less resistance to flow of current – and more power produced within the grid. The positive active material is “locked” to the grid for increased performance at all levels, especially at high current discharges. With this higher capacity over the life of the plate, you’ll notice more power to the load, cooler battery operation and lower maintenance costs.

Benefits
• Long life
• Extended life and durability
• Reliable performance

Key Features
• Heavy, thick plates resist corrosion
• Low maintenance lead alloy reduces gassing and decreases water loss
• Full 5-year limited warranty
• Flip-top vent caps for easy watering

Compatible Chargers

Legacy Opportunity Charge Battery

The Legacy® Opportunity Charge Battery is designed for opportunity charging applications where the battery is charged at any given down time or “opportunity” throughout the day. Opportunity charging is not recommended for standard batteries as it can reduce the overall life of the battery. It requires a battery built to withstand higher charge rates and increased daily ampere hours (Ah) throughput.

Legacy Opportunity Charge batteries are designed to accept charge rates up to 25% of the battery’s rated capacity.

Benefits
• Designed for rigorous demands of opportunity charging

Key Features
• Improved thick straps made with special tin alloy
• Patented high performance positive plates
• Extra thick intercell connectors
• Douglas ToughCoat tray coating withstands corrosion

Compatible Chargers
• LegaC2 Opportunity Charger
• Complements a 22-25 amps per 100AH start rate charger

Rapid charging pushes a battery to its design limits, requiring three times the standard charging rates and up to double the normal daily ampere hour (Ah) throughput. The Legacy® Rapid Charge battery is built to withstand these demands. It includes high performance positive plates, double intercell connectors and premium Douglas tray coating.

The Legacy Rapid Charge battery is designed to endure charge rates up to 40-60% of the battery’s rated capacity.

Benefits
• Designed for rigorous demands of rapid charging

Key Features
• Patented high performance positive plates
• Extra thick intercell connectors
• Double cables and charge connectors
• Douglas ToughCoat tray coating
• Available in vented or standard tray depending on application

Compatible Chargers
• Complements a 40-60 amps per 100AH start rate charger
• Contact a Douglas Battery representative to ensure proper sizing of the charger.

Legacy Low Maintenance Battery

The Legacy® Low Maintenance battery delivers the power and cycle life associated with a standard flooded battery, but with lower maintenance costs. Our proprietary hybrid grid alloys allow extended watering intervals up to 90 days apart, and our separators and internal construction reduce gassing associated with water loss. And less watering means less maintenance downtime.

We engineered the Legacy Low Maintenance Battery without compromising the internal structure of the cell. And the Legacy Low Maintenance Battery can be charged by many standard charger technologies, including ferroresonant.

Benefits
• Less gassing for extended watering intervals
• Less maintenance downtime
• Lower maintenance costs
• Uncompromised internal structure for reliable performance

Key Features
• Patented plate design provides reliable performance through retention of active material
• Special lead alloy with the addition of a unique formulated separator reduces gassing during the charging cycle
• Douglas ToughCoat tray coating withstands corrosion
• Full 5-year limited warranty
• Flip-top vent caps for easy watering

Compatible Chargers
• Legacy HF Charger
• Legacy Series Charger
• Legacy Platinum Charger

Legacy Platinum Battery

The Legacy® Platinum Battery offers the ultimate in maintenance free power. For optimum power and performance, it should be charged with our Legacy Platinum Charger.

The Legacy Platinum battery is a VRLA (valve-regulated lead acid) battery which means it is sealed and never needs watering. The VRLA design eliminates watering, corrosion cleanup, and leakage associated with traditional flooded batteries to save you time and money. Our design also includes a sleeved positive plate separator with a unique back-rib design that eliminates shorts and potential misalignments common with leaf separators. And, a positive plate with thicker grid design increases contact with the active material for more power and extended battery life.

Benefits
• Maintenance free battery power saves time and money
• VRLA (sealed) battery design eliminates watering, corrosion, and prevents spillage

Key Features
• VRLA battery construction and gas-recombinant technology eliminate watering, corrosion cleanup and leakage
• Sleeved positive plate separator with back-rib design eliminates shorts and potential misalignments
• Unique back-rib design increases electrolyte flow and maximizes contact with negative plate
• Positive plate with thicker grid design increases contact with active material for more power and extended battery life
• Negative plate designed with staggered grid pattern provides greatest amount of active material
