Solar GEL/AGM Deep Cycle Battery in Dubai
Battery is reservoir of charge just like a storage tank in water pumping systems. Charge storage capacity of battery is mentioned in terms if Ah (Ampere hours). Generally speaking, there are 3 major types of batteries that are used in solar systems viz. Flooded, Gelled and AGM types. All these types have one feature in common; they all are deep cycle types.
Gel Cell batteries contain a silica type gel that the battery electrolyte is suspended in, this thick paste like material allows electrons to flow between plates and this liquid does make it spill -proof so it will not leak from the battery if the case is broken like AGM batteries, but the gel is fragile, and can be easily burned if used in high amperage situations.
Things like quick charging, high discharge, or other intense situations are all likely to cause serious damage to a gel battery, making it fail even if it's barely used.
AGM (absorbed glass mat) is a special design glass mat designed to wick the battery electrolyte between the battery plates. AGM batteries contain only enough liquid to keep the mat wet with the electrolyte and if the battery is broken no free liquid is available and the precision assembly creates a uniform book of plates that are tightly compressed in each cell and held under pressure in the rigid battery case.That's why this battery has a resistance vibration, recharges fast, cycles more and last longer in demanding of applications.
