The Provisions of this Limited Warranty Shall Not Apply to Failure Due to Stated Conditions
1.
The warranty does not apply to batteries used in cycling applications. While the bus is not in use, the TransPower ST1000 battery must
not be used to power electrical devices not related to the vehicle's primary engine/electronics/starting system or the warranty is void.
2.
The warranty does not apply to batteries that have reached their normal end of life due to usage. Conditions such as excessive starts
and extreme heat may accelerate battery life prior to manufacturer’s defect warranty period.
3.
Each battery must be the proper size, design, and capacity for its intended application.
4.
Each battery must be charged, discharged, stored, and serviced in accordance with all printed Trojan Battery’s User Guide instructions.
The limited warranty is invalid if the battery is subject to misuse, abuse, or physical damage.
5.
Prolonged storage of vehicles with electrical devices or parasitic loads that require continuous battery power, outside of typical transit
bus sub-systems.
6.
User agrees that the manufacturer’s representative may request that batteries be returned or shall have access to equipment furnished
hereunder for purposes of inspection at reasonable hours and intervals.
7.
Charging limitations: Batteries must be charged to Trojan Battery User’s Guide instructions in which charging voltage is adjusted based
on operating temperature. The maximum short term temperature exposure is limited to 160°F. The warranty shall also be voided if the
temperature of the battery exceeds 160°F (71°C) and if battery is subjected to overcharging, undercharging, charging or installing in
reverse polarity, improper maintenance, allowing the battery to be deeply discharged or mishandling of the battery such as but not
limited to using the terminals for lifting or carrying the battery.
8.
Voltage regulator to be adjusted to a level to provide 27.8 to 28.0 volts as measured at the battery terminal.
Continued on reverse...
9.
Any battery with an open circuit voltage of less than 10 volts is considered over discharged due to neglect and will not be covered
under warranty. Any batteries not properly maintained during periods of non-use will void the warranty.
10. The warranty will be void if the battery is used for an application that requires higher cranking power or a greater reserve rating than
the battery is designed to deliver, or the battery capacity is less than the battery capacity specified by the bus manufacturer, or the
battery is otherwise used in applications for which it was not designed.
11. The use of any type of oil, organic solvent, alcohol, detergent, strong acids, strong alkalis, petroleum-based solvent or ammonia
solution to clean the jars or covers may cause permanent damage to the battery jar and cover and will void the warranty.
12. The warranty is rendered void if the battery becomes unserviceable due to fire, wreckage, freezing, neglect, abuse, damage, any act of
God, the use of battery additives, or the battery has been serviced by someone other than an authorized Trojan Battery Service Center.
A battery will not be considered defective unless it fails to deliver 60% or less of its published rated capacity (temperature corrected to 80°F)
during the warranty period. The battery must be used in the application for which it was designed.
The battery owner will read warning labels on the battery and exercise due care in working on or around it. The battery is intended to be
serviced by persons with training or experience with batteries.
