Gel Batteries

Lead-Crystal-Gel-BatteryECOBAT stocks a full range of 6V and 12V gel batteries to suit all requirements.

With Gel technology, the liquid electrolyte is suspended in a fumed silica gelling agent, which causes it to partially solidify, enhancing its durability with very little in the way of maintenance requirement.

When you need a maintenance free gel battery for a truly deep cycle application, the Sonnenschein battery range is at the top of the list when it comes to durability and length of service life.

If you have the availability of a 12-hour (overnight) recharge time, the endurance of the Sonnenschein M, with its 1000 cycle life, is probably the best value for money compared to a standard gel battery.

The GF12 76H battery provides 1000 cycles at 70% depth of discharge, with zero maintenance and is ideal for floor care applications, whereas most standard VRLA batteries allow from 300-450 cycles.

Lead Crystal® Gel Batteries

If, however, recharge time is limited, then ECOBAT’s Lead Crystal® batteries are the preferred choice as these have recharge times from as low as 3-4 hrs with no detriment to the battery, which is exceptional for gel batteries. They can achieve 1500 cycles at 80% depth of discharge, which is considerably more than the average!

The lead crystal battery is 99.97% recyclable making it a truly viable option to lithium, at a significantly lower price.

  • Maintenance free
  • Non-hazardous
  • Low self-discharge
  • Low gassing
  • Clean and recyclable

Batteries can be shipped via a standard carrier without the need for any special provisions.

Choosing the right Gel Battery

There are many Gel (AGM) battery brands on the market, but making the right choice depends on the demands of the machine and the recharge requirements for the application and these need to be fully met to fulfil expectations. Our team of experts are more than able to provide all the information and advice that you need to make the right choice regarding your gel battery solution. Please be advised that it might not be as simple as swapping from one type to another as a different type of battery charger may be required.
