What is a AGM battery?
The newer type of sealed Non-spillable maintenance free valve regulated battery uses "Absorbed Glass Mats", or AGM separators between the plates. This is a very fine fiber Boron-Silicate glass mat. These type of batteries have all the advantages of gelled
What is a Gel battery?
A gel battery design is typically a modification of the standard lead acid automotive or marine battery. A gelling agent is added to the electrolyte to reduce movement inside the battery case. Many gel batteries also use one way valves in place of open ve
What is the advantages and disadvantages of lead-acid batteries?
Advantage: low price: the price of lead acid batteries is just 1/4~1/6 of that of other types of batteries with a lower investment which most users could bear. Disadvantage: heavy and bulk, low specific energy, strict on charging and discharging.
What is the storage life of VRLA battery?
All sealed lead acid batteries self-discharge. If the capacity loss due to self-discharge is not compensated for by recharging, the battery
capacity may become unrecoverable. Temperature also plays a role in determining the shelf life of a battery. Batte
The reasons of battery heating.
During the battery charging process, electrical energy transforms into chemical energy, heat energy and other energy. It is normal
phenomenon for that battery is heating during charging. But at high temperature, battery should be timely check whether cha
What is the harm of battery heating?
The battery in the charging and discharging process, will release certain heat. But a lot of heats is very harmful to the battery. Heating will make electrolyte water evaporation and dried up at first, and then gradually reduce the charging efficiency, de
How to keep the consistency of the battery pack？
Though there is a strict battery selection procedure, after a certain period usage, the non-homogeneity will appear more and more obviously. Meanwhile, charging equipment can’t choose and recongnize the weak battery out, so it is user who can take control
What is the difference between float and cycle applications?
A float application requires the battery to be on constant charge with an occasional discharge. Cycle applications charge and discharge the battery on a regular basis.
What is discharge efficiency？
discharge conditions. It is mainly affected by factors such as discharge rate, environmental temperature, internal resistance. Generally, the higher the rate of discharge is, the lower the discharge efficiency will be; the lower the temperature is, the lo
Are lead acid batteries recyclable?
Lead acid batteries are 100% recyclable. Lead is the most recycled metal in the world today. The plastic containers and covers of old batteries are neutralized, reground and used to the manufacture of new battery cases. The electrolyte can be processed fo
