GEL-TECH BATTERIES

Among the many features which set Gel-Tech batteries apart from the competition are exclusive tank-formed plates, calcium copper lead alloys, and the use of durable polypropylene cases. Gel-Tech batteries also feature the very best in pressure safety release valves, computer controlled gel mixing, and multi-stage vacuum filing. These features combine to eliminate voids and dead spots from forming on the plates during the manufacturing process which can lead to inconsistent life and reduced performance. They won’t spill even if the battery is tipped upside down or cracked open. The gelled electrolyte helps inhibit wear and tear caused by severe vibrations, and protects the plates in repetitive discharge/recharge situations. They offer excellent charge efficiency and are not current limited on recharge so long as the voltage is regulated. Gel-Tech batteries are also particularly suited to marine or house power applications where safety issues with submersion, venting and external gasses are applicable.

Features Benefits
Exclusive gelled electrolyte formula Gelled electrolyte won’t spill, even if the battery is tipped upside down.. or cracked open. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about messy acid spills or corrosion.
Exclusive computerised gel mixing Proper gel mixing is absolutely critical to battery life and performance. Sophisticated computer controls and unique temperature-controlled processes assure superior gel consistency.
Exclusive multi-staged filling The GEL-TECH multi-stage vacuum filling process completely eliminates power robbing dead spots by vacuuming each cell several times, assuring peak performance of the battery plates.
Exclusive tank formed plates Battery plates are charged or “formed” outside the battery in an exclusive and unique tank formation process to ensure plates are of the highest quality and completely formed.
Exclusive calcium/copper lead allow grids Special lead allow provides the benefits of lower self-discharge, more power-per-pound and superior corrosion resistance for longer battery life.
Exclusive weld seals Sealed intercell welds dramatically reduces self-discharge which extends off-season storage time.
Over 250 quality checks Every single raw material and component that goes into the GEL-TECH battery is the finest made.
