I haven't seen these before, are they a new product?
Where did you read 50% cycles? I just had a discussion with trojan about what they consider a cycle....their version of a cycle is different than my master volt battery monitor
In the trojan world a cycle is a discharge by ANY amount and then brought back to full charge.
So of you pull 1 amp out of that battery
and then bring it back up to full charge , you have used one cycle. This is true for any trojan battery. Cycle count depends on battery temperature. The higher overall battery temp, each cycle counts more.
In the end you really only end up with 300 or so real 50% to 100% cycles.
