Deep Cycle Batteries

deep-cycle-gel-batteryECOBAT’s Industrial Division offers a wide variety of 6, 8 and 12-volt deep cycle batteries, all available from stock.

A true deep cycle battery offers a higher energy density, longer cycle life and higher capacity. When specifying bloc batteries, it is important to understand the required duty of the application, many of which in today’s environment are arduous and therefore require a higher capacity capability.

The most common deep cycle battery is the wet lead acid battery, which is very robust and has an available discharge capacity of up to 80% of the 5hr rate. However, this type of battery requires regular maintenance, such a topping with distilled water every week or so. These batteries are mainly used in the Access and Floor Care sectors, along with Electric Golf Buggies.

Ease of Deep Cycle Battery Maintenance

For ease of maintenance, a Deep Cycle Gel battery is increasingly being used, but this is where specifying the correct type of Gel product is vital. ECOBAT offers a full range of Traction Batteries, which have tubular plate design and give greater capacity and design life. These must not however be confused with standard leisure AGM batteries, as these have a lower cycle life and reduced capacity.

The cycle life of a standard AGM product is approximately 300-400 cycles, whereas a traction type deep cycle battery would expect to deliver 700-800 cycles to a depth of 60% of the rated 5hr capacity.

Lead Deep Cycle Batteries

deep-cycle-lead-crystal-batteryAlthough most lead acid batteries do not react well to ‘opportunity charging’, with the introduction of new technology ECOBAT is able to offer a pure lead battery solution, which is maintenance free and provides a higher than normal cycle life extended to 1200-1500 cycles. This technology is called Lead Crystal and it allows for greater flexibility when in use. The light traction range of Lead Crystal batteries are specifically designed to cater for ‘opportunity charging’ giving users the flexibility of using the machine for short periods and immediately putting it back on charge ready for the next use, which make it ideal for the Floor Care sector and standby operations.

With its extensive branch network and high stock holding, ECOBAT offer a full range of deep cycle batteries for next day delivery.
