  • The third group of digits (90RC) indicates the time in minutes in which the battery voltage falls to 10.5 volts in the case of a 25 amp load and an ambient temperature of 22C.

DIN Labelling

  • The first group of letters (WF) indicates that the battery is maintenance-free
  • he first digit (5) indicates that the battery is 12 volts.

The second and third digits (58) indicates the battery capacity is 58 Ah, which means it could power a 58 amp load for 1 hour.
