Victron Deep Cycle GEL Batteries
Victrons GEL Deep Cycle battery model range offers best deep cycle durability and overall longer life with a design life of 12 years.
The use of high purity materials and lead calcium grids ensure that Victrons GEL batteries have particularly low self-discharge so that they will not go flat during long periods without charge. They 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.
GEL Battery Features:
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.
Sealed (VRLA) Gel Batteries - Here the electrolyte is immobilised as gel. Gel batteries in general have a longer service life and better cycle capacity than AGM batteries.
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.
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
Battery Discharging Characteristics - The rated capacity of Victron Gel Deep Cycle batteries refers to 20 hour discharge, in other words: a discharge current of 0.05 C.
The effective capacity decreases with increasing discharge current. Please note that the capacity reduction will be even faster in case of a constant power load, such as an inverter.
Victrons AGM or GEL Batteries?
Victrons AGM deep cycle batteries have excellent high current performance and are therefore recommended for more high current applications such as engine starting. Due to their construction, Gel batteries have a lower effective capacity at high discharge currents. On the other hand, Gel batteries have a longer service life, both under float and cycling conditions.
