Trojan Battery Co. has posted the first series of videos on its website, focused on expanding battery knowledge, of its Trojan Tips educational video line. The second set of videos in the series will be posted in 2013, the company said.

The Trojan Tips video tutorials are designed to provide in-depth information focusing on a variety of battery topics as well as expand awareness and understanding of deep-cycle battery technology.

“Trojan developed the Trojan Tips video tutorials to educate the public on how to enhance the performance and longevity of deep-cycle batteries that power a variety of electrical equipment,” said Vicki Hall, Trojan’s director of quality and technical services, and host of the Trojan Tips. “Trojan has received such tremendous positive feedback on the initial Trojan Tips series, and we are planning to develop another series of videos in 2013.”
