Flooded Lead Acid Batteries

Flooded Lead Acid Batteries

Flooded Lead acid batteries are known to be one of the first rechargeable battery options on the market. This type of battery is still very common, even though technology has advanced. These batteries have a low energy to weight and energy to volume ratio, which makes them better for stationary applications, including renewable energy systems and start engines. It is determined that this type of battery will always have a place in the market, as it efficiently supplies power for off grid needs.

Unlike other types of batteries, these require maintenance. They will need water to be added to them on a routine basis, because they lose electrolytes through the vents. Lead plates are known to deteriorate if they are touched by another surface. If lead acid batteries are not properly maintained, they will corrode and die. However, flooded batteries have the longest life, as well as the least cost per amp-hour. To properly maintain a flooded lead acid battery, you need to replenish electrolytes by adding water, balance out cells by charging, and clean the top and terminals to deter corrosion.
