A high quality and reliable rechargeable battery is essential for powering any mobility scooter or electric wheelchair. Gel batteries are widely used in mobility aids as opposed to AGM batteries. Over the years, many of our customers have asked us why this is the case.
VMS signs, radar signs, arrow boards and portable traffic lights all rely on some form of a battery system, whether the battery is an AGM, Gel or Lithium battery. Often these battery systems are charged by solar panels, and in some cases, the charging only happens when the sign is back at base.
Phone towers, radio repeaters, base stations - they all rely on some form of battery system, whether it's an AGM battery or a Gel battery for energy storage and back-up power.
Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery suppliers will always tell you that Gel batteries should be installed in solar systems. But why? What's the advantages of Gel batteries for solar systems? Why can't I install an AGM battery in a solar system? The team at Valen are here to support you with information as to why you should be installing.
