Sealed (VRLA) GEL Batteries The GEL model range offers best deep cycle durability and overall longer life. Here the electrolyte is immobilized as gel. Gel batteries in general have a longer service life and better cycle capacity than AGM batteries.
VRLA technology VRLA stands for Valve Regulated Lead Acid, which means that the batteries are sealed. Gas will escape through the safety valves only in case of overcharging or cell failure. VRLA batteries are maintenance free for life.
Low Self-Discharge Because of the use of lead calcium grids and high purity materials, Victron VRLA batteries can be stored during long periods of time without recharge. The rate of self-discharge is less than 2% per month at 20°C. The self-discharge doubles for every increase in temperature by 10°C. Victron VRLA batteries can therefore be stored for up to a year without recharging, if kept under cool conditions. The AGM Battery range has very low internal resistance making them particularly suitable for high current discharge applications such as for inverters, thrusters and winches.
Exceptional Deep Discharge Recovery Victron VRLA batteries have exceptional discharge recovery, even after deep or prolonged discharge. Nevertheless repeatedly deep and prolonged discharge has a very negative effect on the service life of all lead acid batteries, Victron batteries are no exception.
Technology:tubular plate GEL Terminals:copper Rated capacity:10 hr. discharge at 25°C Float design life:20 years at 20°C Cycle design life: 1500 cycles at 80% discharge; 2500 cycles at 50% discharge; 4500 cycles at 30% discharge.
The use of high purity materials and lead calcium grids ensure that for AGM and GEL batteries have particularly low self-discharge so that they will not go flat during long periods without charge. The batteries are supplied with M8 drilled, flat copper terminals ensuring best possible connection contact and eliminating the need for battery terminals. The batteries are compliant with both CE and UL specifications in ABS fireproof containers and come with Victron's 2 year world-wide warranty.
