Why Forbatt Batteries are amongst the best on the market

FORBATT Lead Acid Batteries are rated one of the best on the market for a number of reasons. Their AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) and Gel batteries give a high and stable performance, which making it very economical to use.


Their sealed lead-acid battery (SLA) also known as a valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) or maintenance-free battery, are a type of lead-acid rechargeable battery. The SLA battery is widely used in portable electrical devices, telecom systems and power storage applications. The two common types of SLA batteries are AGM (absorbed glass mat) and Gel. Compared with the flooded lead acid battery or wet-cell, AGM and Gel battery can be considered dry-cell. Dry cell means AGM can hold the electrolyte in the glass mats. AGM batteries feature fibreglass mesh between the battery plates which serves to contain the electrolyte.


The Gel battery or gel cell battery is an SLA battery with a gel or jellylike electrolyte. The sulphuric acid is mixed with silica, which makes the electrolyte gel-like and immobile. Unlike a flooded lead-acid battery, Gel batteries do not need to be kept upright, which means better flexibility in unusual installations. (We do, however ideally recommend the upright position.)


AGM and Gel batteries, both reduce electrolyte evaporation, spillage, and corrosion problems common to the wet-cell battery. Gel batteries also have better resistance to shock and vibration.


The SLA battery eliminates the need to fill up with battery water to achieve the maintenance-free convenience. This makes the SLA a much safer shipping battery, ideal for portability and perfect for maintenance-free applications.
