The Trojan Advantage

Our engineers work continuously to improve our products and develop advanced battery technology. Innovative advancements—such as Trojan’s Smart Carbon™, T2 Technology™, proprietary Alpha Plus® Paste, and our exclusive Maxguard® separator—all help to deliver exceptional battery performance.

As energy needs evolve, so do Trojan batteries. Learn all about our battery types and technologies.


Trojan Grid Technology

Reduced downtime and lower maintenance costs

Trojan’s grid technology is a lead antimony alloy grid mixture formulated specifically for use with Trojan’s Alpha Plus® Paste with T2 Technology™.

The grid formulation provides exceptional structural adhesion between the Alpha Plus Paste and the grid frame. Thick grids reinforce the strength of the frame and reduce corrosion.

The overall grid configuration is optimized to enhance current flow through the grid network providing exceptional battery performance, reducing downtime and lowering maintenance costs.

Smart Carbon™

Trojan’s Intelligent Solution for Partial State of Charge

At Trojan, we understand the importance of powering your essential needs. That’s why we’re proud to introduce Smart Carbon™, a reliable, intelligent solution for partial state-of-charge (PSoC) applications.

Deep cycle batteries used in off-grid and unstable grid applications are heavily cycled at PSoC. Operating at PSoCon a regular basis can quickly diminish the overall life of a battery, which results in frequent and costly battery replacements. After years of research and development, Trojan’s engineering team developed Smart Carbon™. This proprietary formula provides improved performance when the batteries operate in PSoC, enhancing overall battery life in applications where the batteries are undercharged on a regular basis. Smart Carbon builds on Trojan’s commitment to provide deep cycle batteries that offer long cycle life, durable design and consistent power day in and day out.

To address the impact of PSoC on deep cycle batteries in renewable energy (RE), inverter, and telecom backup applications, Smart Carbon™ is a standard feature in our Solar Premium flooded battery lines.


Alpha Plus® Paste with T2 Technology™

Maximum operation performance

Trojan’s Alpha Plus® Paste is a proprietary, high-density paste formulation precisely engineered to deliver outstanding battery performance. This high-density paste optimizes porosity development in the active material utilizing the active material more effectively, resulting in sustained battery performance over a longer period of time.

Trojan’s T2 Technology introduces a patent-pending T2 metal agent into our Alpha Plus® Paste, further strengthening its electrochemical processing capabilities.

Together, Alpha Plus Paste with T2 Technology increase both sustained capacity and total overall ampere-hours, resulting in more operating power for your application. It’s a key reason why Trojan batteries consistently outperform the competition.

Maxguard® T2 Separator

Longer battery life

Exclusively available in Trojan batteries is our Maxguard T2 advanced separator. Trojan’s Maxguard T2 separator features a multi-rib geometry which keeps acid channels open longer, enhancing electrochemical processing while reducing the risk of stratification.

Maxguard’s proprietary rubber-based material inhibits antimony transfer between the positive grids and negative plates; a protection not available in many other competitor batteries. A newly fortified, thick back web provides even greater separator strength resulting in a more robust battery, with increased protection against failures caused by separator degradation.

Trojan’s Maxguard T2 advanced separator sustains performance, providing exceptionally longer battery life and significantly lowering your operating costs.
