Those of you who’ve shopped online for batteries before, are probably familiar with AGM, Gel and small-cell batteries. But you may not have come across Lead Crystal Batteries as possible power solutions.
But what exactly are lead crystal batteries, and what makes them worth considering for your application?
There are a number of great benefits to these power sources, which make them an excellent choice in a number of situations. As a result, they’re commonly used today in telecommunications, wind and solar power, healthcare, manufacturing and electric vehicles.
Firstly, they can be charged faster than most conventional batteries and be safely discharged to 0 volts without being put under stress. They can also be discharged more often and will comfortably operate between extreme temperatures of -40 to 65 C (making them great for regular use in harsh environments.) And incredibly, they require no extra ventilation or cooling to operate under these conditions.
They’re also much safer than many other battery types in both their day-to-day use and in the long term. As they use less acid and no cadmium or antimony, this reduces the risk of harmful leakage, and they’re up to 99% recyclable depending on the make and model.
This reduced risk even results in lead crystal batteries being classified as non-hazardous for transport, reducing potential issues that might arise when travelling internationally.
The batteries’ overall resilience means they boast a float service life of up to 18 years and can be stored for up to two years without needing to be refreshed or recharged.
