Traction Battery

 Battery Applications & Technology

Traction batteries are used to provide motive power for electric or hybrid vehicles. The major emphasis on traction battery design is the necessity of a high capacity to weight and volume ratio, since the vehicle must also carry its power source. Traction batteries are frequently deep cycled and require a fast charging rate for use usually within 24 hours. Typical applications are motive power for fork lifts and electric carts. Traction batteries are usually of the tubular plate design, which performs more favorably during deep cycle operation.
