A Gel Battery is also known as a Gel Cell and this is basically to reduce electrolyte evaporation and spillage. This technology has been proven and used for many years. Gel batteries have a great resistance to extreme temperatures, shock and vibration.
A Gel Battery is quite similar to AGM Battery because their electrolyte is suspended.
Chemically they are the same as wet cell batteries, only the lead plates are inclusive of calcium and a gel electrolyte is used to avoid gassing.
These gel batteries are used for industrial, marine, recreational vehicles, small engines and farm equipment.
Advantages of Gel Batteries
In a gel battery silicone is used to turn the sulphuric acid to a gel like substance. This gel like substance gives batteries some advantages.Advantages:
- They won’t spill acid when turned on their side and even if the battery breaks, making them safer to work with and decreasing the risk of getting sulphuric acid burns.
- Require less maintenance and do not need to check water levels
- Because they do not give off hydrogen fumes, they can be recharged even in places with poor ventilation.
