Exide SuperGel1500 (150AH) Description
Exide SuperGEL1500 150AH is a flat plate / GEL based inverter battery from Exide. With this battery, Exide has come up with a unique Gel technology; another pioneering technology in batteries and is first of its kind in this category. Exide SuperGEL1500 battery not only prevents spillage but also is fume free and utilizes space while being stored and lasts longer.
A valve-regulated lead-acid battery (VRLA battery) utilizes a one way, pressure-relief valve system and Gelled (immobilized) electrolyte to achieve a recombinant technology. Gelled Electrolyte is formed by addition of silicon dioxide (SiO2) to diluted Sulphuric acid (H2SO4). Fused gelled electrolyte not only acts as electrolytic medium for ion movement but also provides infinite small crevices necessary for recombination reaction. Oxygen normally produced on the positive plate is transported to negative plates through crevices formed in fused gel and it is then absorbed by negative plates. This surpasses the production of hydrogen at the negative plates. Water (H2O) is produced instead, retaining the moisture within the battery. It never needs watering, and should never be opened as this would expose the battery to excess oxygen from air.
High Quality Silica Gel: Excellent recovery from deep discharge leading to high reliability and a longer life.
No Spillage: Since there is no liquid type electrolyte, battery will not leak even if it’s tipped on its side.
Special Plate Design: Increases ability to withstand arduous service conditions.
High Pressure Venting System: This system leads to high oxygen recombination efficiency.
Maintenance-free: Premium maintenance-free design requires no electrolyte maintenance unlike deep cycle flooded batteries that require frequent checking an adjustment of electrolyte level.
Low Self-discharging Rate: Extends the shelf life of the battery.
One-way Pressure Relief Valve: Consistent opening and closing of pressure ensures better maintenance-free characteristics.
Efficient Heat Dissipation: Leads to the prevention of Thermal runaway
