Sealed Lead Acid
Affordability of high power.
If you’re looking for a reliable and durable power solution for your specialized application, a lead acid battery is your best bet.
Sealed lead acid batteries are commonly used in the highly specialized automotive industry. This is because they are robust enough to endure a wide variety of stressful applications, and are markedly low cost compared to alternative power options. People find it easy to look past the big size and bulk, and focus instead on the affordability of high power. These monsters can produce extremely high currents, and are available in various sizes, making them just as good in a submarine as in an electric wheelchair. They can also be used as an emergency power source, lighting, and UPS back-up. Because these batteries are composed of lead-oxide and sulphuric acid – extremely harmful metals – they cannot be disposed of with your household waste. There are usually dedicated recycling points, and you may find a battery store that will take your dead battery and dispose of it correctly for you.
