NEW RATING STANDARDS FOR AUTOMOTIVE BATTERIES

The Battery Subcommittee of the SAE Electrical Equipment Committee has developed new standards for rating automotive batteries. The need for the new ratings and their advantages over the former ratings are discussed along with the new "Reserve Capacity", "Cold Cranking, and "Life Test" test procedures. These new standards closely simulate actual operating conditions in today's cars and their adoption will allow the battery suppliers increased design flexibility. /SASI/
