Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA): Gelled Electrolyte (gel) and Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Batteries:

Gel Batteries

    Lead-acid electric storage battery that:

  • is sealed using special pressure valves and should never be opened
  • is completely maintenance-free
  • uses thixotropic gelled electrolyte
  • uses a recombination reaction to prevent the escape of hydrogen and oxygen gases normally lost in a flooded lead-acid battery (particularly deep-cycle applications)
  • is non-spillable, and therefore can be operated in virtually any poisition. However, upside-down installation is not recomended.
  • is more "acid-starved", therefore it is more suited for super-deep discharge applications

AGM Batteries

   Lead-acid electric storage battery that: 

  • is sealed using special pressure valves and should never be opened
  • is completely maintenance-free
  • has all of its electrolyte absorbed in separators consisting of a sponge-like mass of matted glass fibers
  • uses a recombination reaction to prevent the escape of hydrogen and oxygen gases normally lost in a flooded lead-acid battery (particularly deep-cycle applications)
  • is non-spillable, and therefore can be operated in virtually any poisition. However, upside-down installation is not recomended.
  • EXCELS for high current, high power application and in extremely cold environments
