Gel Batteries - Tubular Gel Solar Batteries - Gel Deep Cycle Batteries

Gel Batteries - Tubular Gel Batteries - Gel Solar Batteries - Gel Deep Cycle Batteries with Australia Wide Delivery!

A Gel Battery (also known as a “gel cell”) is a sealed, deep cycle battery that uses a gel electrolyte. Our Gel Deep Cycle Batteries range is built tough and completely maintenance free. Our range of Tubular Gel Solar Batteries are all designed to perform and give lasting power to off grid solar systems. They can also handle more challenging applications like Grid Connected storage and can be a great value battery for residential hybrid solar battery systems. Tubular Gel Batteries will achieve a very long life in many off grid and standalone power applications.

Our range of Tubular Gel Batteries come with a 20 year designed service life and 5500 cyclic life rating (30% DOD). These tubular gel batteries are devised in every aspect to go the distance. Each tubular gel battery is a single 2V cell, in comparison to other types of batteries which contain multiple 2V cells within them (a 12V battery contains 6x 2V cells).

Gel BatteriesThis feature of a Tubular Gel Battery provides greater reliability by removing the possibility of a higher voltage battery dropping a cell and needing complete replacement. Due to their single cell nature, tubular gel batteries are also available in substantially larger sizes than combined cell batteries.

Gel Deep Cycle Batteries are one of the most used batteries when getting off-grid solar and wind power in Australia. They are different to a car battery, as they are designed to be discharged to a greater depth. The most common type of battery for deep cycle applications are AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) Batteries, Tubular Gel and Flooded Deep Cycle Batteries.

Why you should not use a Gel AGM Battery under the Bonnet: Oil, fuel and other engine lubricants may cause damage to battery casing materials. We strongly recommended that you avoid fitting Deep Cycle Gel batteries under the bonnet of your vehicle as this will void the warranty the best for under the bonnet are sealed lead acid batteries such as an Exide Batteries we can supply these in our store located in Warana, QLD. We do not ship lead-acid car batteries due to their volatility.

Gel batteries are also often called a 'Solar Battery' and are valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries that do not release corrosive gas. Presently, Gel batteries have the highest cycle rate of all our deep cycle batteries, and this makes them perfect for many solar power systems.

  • The term "valve regulated" means that VRLA batteries recombine the (O) oxygen produced at the positive plates with the (H) hydrogen from the negative plates. This reaction creates water and consequently prevents water loss and oxidation within the battery.

Gel Batteries as we previously described keep the electrolyte suspended in a gel-like fixative. Similar to AGM batteries, Gels do not need a battery tray as they are considered non-spillable. Hence, the name ‘sealed gel battery’ often used to describe them. However, we still recommend an upright position to get the best from your batteries.Gel batteries can also recover remarkably well from deep discharges. However, to get the most out of gel batteries, it is still best to charge them up as soon as possible.

  • The advantages of using a sealed gel battery are that the cycle life of Gel batteries massively exceeds that of Flooded or AGM batteries if properly maintained. Remember, gel batteries must be charged at a lower voltage than AGM or Flooded batteries (therefore gels can't be directly hooked up to a vehicle's alternator).

The above condition is not restrictive when Gels are used by a solar system with battery chargers and regulators as they have specific settings for gel type batteries. Gel batteries are often called a 'Solar Battery' because they are long lasting rechargeable batteries that are ideal for use in solar power systems, predominantly where low maintenance is desired/required. Remember the extra costs will pay off over the lifespan of the batteries.

A common question we get asked is "What is the difference between Deep Cycle AGM (Absorbed Glass Matt) Gel Batteries and Tubular Gel Batteries ?"

In Tubular Gel Batteries the electrolyte is mixed into a paste, which gives similar advantages to AGM Batteries (e.g. makes them non-spillable with lower internal resistance leading to better performance than traditional Lead Acid). We sell both these types of Gel Batteries, and it depends on the application, you want the battery to fulfil.

More information about Tubular Gel Batteries

Gel batteries are valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries that do not release corrosive gas. Depending on yoru application Gel batteries can have some of the highest cycle ratea of all the deep cycle batteries which makes them attractive for solar power systems. The term "valve regulated" is somewhat misleading. VRLA batteries recombine the oxygen (O) produced at the positive plates with the hydrogen (H) from the negative plates - creating water, and therefore preventing water loss and oxidation.

Gel batteries keep the electrolyte suspended in a gel-like paste. Like AGM batteries, Gels do not require a battery tray as they are considered non-spillable. We still recommend an upright position for best results!

Gel batteries also recover exceptionally well from deep discharges. To get the most out of Deep Cycle Gel Batteries it is still best to charge them up as soon as possible. The cycle life of Gel batteries by far exceeds that of Flooded or AGM batteries if properly treated. Gel batteries must be charged at a lower voltage than Flooded or AGM batteries (and therefore Gels cannot be directly hooked up to a vehicle's alternator). The above proviso is not limiting when Gels are used in solar systems with battery chargers and regulators that have settings for gel type batteries (check if your chargers/regulators do).

To conclude, Gel batteries are long lasting rechargeable batteries ideal for use in solar power systems, particularly where low maintenance is desired or required. The extra investment will pay off over the lifespan of the battery.
