Gel-Tech 8G40C Sealed Gel Maintenance Free Battery
Gel-Tech represent the benchmark by which all other deep
cycle batteries are judged and the ideal solution for heavy duty deep
Manufactured in the USA to exacting standards, Gel-Tech batteries take
precise engineering to new levels with the world’s most modern computer
aided design process and over 250 quality control checks throughout the
The Gel-Tech range of Deep Cycle batteries feature exclusive tank-formed
plates, calcium copper lead alloys, rugged polypropylene cases and the
very best pressure safety release valves available to deliver truly
astonishing performance in heavy cyclic applications.
A gel battery is a lead-acid electric storage battery that:
is sealed using special pressure valves and should never be opened.
is completely maintenance-free.*
uses thixotropic gelled electrolyte.
uses a recombination reaction to prevent the escape of
hydrogen and oxygen gases normally lost in a flooded
lead-acid battery (particularly in deep cycle applications).
is non-spillable, and therefore can be operated in virtually any position. However, upside-down installation is not recommended.
* Connections must be retorqued and the batteries should be cleaned periodicall
VRLA batteries can be substituted in virtually any flooded lead-acid
battery application (in conjunction with well-regulated charging), as
well as applications where traditional flooded batteries cannot be used.
Because of their unique features and benefits, VRLA batteries are
particularly well suited for:
Deep Cycle, Deep Discharge Applications
Marine & RV House Power
Commercial Deep Cycle Applications
Standby and Emergency Backup Applications
UPS (Uninterrupted Power Systems)
Unusual and Demanding Applications
Marine & RV Starting
Diesel & I.C.E. Starting
