Benefits of Gel Cell Batteries

The main benefits of having sealed Gel cell batteries is the reduced maintenance costs, which are kept to the minimum as the batteries are sealed in construction, so no water topping up is required through their entire life time. The electrolyte is in Gel form, so there is no danger or acid leakage or of corrosion or contamination. Gel cell batteries also have very low gas emissions and ventilation requirements and therefore can be charged around the warehouse, without the need for big charging areas.

Gel cells have the flexibility to be interchangeable, they have the corresponding weights and dimensions according to DIN and BS standards, which means that it is very safe to change from standard wet lead acid cells (PzS type) to gel (PzV type)

Gel cell batteries are of tubular plate design giving high performance cycling and capacity, with operational safety and long-lifespan.
