This paper describes how to write a meaningful lead-acid battery specification. Three sections that should be included are: 1. Definitions of the application - A description of environmental conditions, duty cycle, recharge method, and maintenance issues. 2. Customer preferences - Customer options based on preference, such as VLA vs. VRLA, single cell vs. multicell, single string vs. parallel. 3. Specified requirements - Items specified by the customer for a proper application, such as construction materials, design features, dimensions, and warranty. If followed, the battery proposals will match the application, can be compared to each other, and allow for a battery manufacturer to offer an improved option for a price premium. This allows the customer to truly evaluate and compare the various offerings to make the best selection possible.
