Yes, our batteries have flame retardant ABS cases, however, the flooded cells are moulded SAN material.

GEL batteries have been designed to give an operating life as close to flooded batteries as possible. This is achieved by using special alloys, SuperGEL plate technology, thick plate designs, and a gel mix and filling.

No, we only supply a premium range of industrial batteries.

All batteries are dispatched with the required fasteners, links and cables.

Over time, batteries will start to lose capacity reducing the run-time for your applications. A correctly designed system should have approximately 80% of capacity at their end of life.

Yes, however it’s not recommended as the capacity of the bank will perform only as well as the least performing cell in the bank.

There is no need to top-up electrolytes, however, batteries must be kept clean to ensure terminals are clean and tight.

As a box of electrochemical energy with a finite life, the more battery capacity used over a short period of time, the quicker it will fail. Subsequently, reducing the capacity used will lengthen the time it lasts.

Under no circumstances should you open the vent on any sealed lead acid battery. This will void the battery warranty.

You never need to add water or acid, and that’s the advantage!

Yes, GEL batteries can be recycled using a registered battery recycler.

Yes, the more material in the grid structure, the longer it takes to corrode away.

The design life is a method by which battery manufacturers self-rate their batteries, based on the corrosion of the positive plate to failure. This test is usually conducted in a controlled environment with a measured thickness of the battery grid in a known strength of sulphuric acid. It should be noted that batteries can fail due to a number of reasons beside positive grid failure.
