The LC-R1233P from Panasonic is a multi-purpose battery suitable for standby, UPS and for continuous cyclic usage such as golf buggies & mobility aids/motorised scooters.
This VRLA battery is an AGM type. Please ensure the correct charger is used to charge the batteries.
To extend overall service life of the battery we recommend the four stage microprocessor controlled Battery Fighter range of chargers. Use model BFA012 charger for standby applications & maintenance (top-up) charging of batteries in cyclic applications. For dedicated cyclic use of the battery we recommend chargers models BFP012 for 12 volt systems & the BFP024 for 24 volt systems.
Use of automotive or gel type chargers may shorten battery life and may not fully charge this battery type.
Two or three stage VRLA/AGM chargers are acceptable.
Using non cyclic batteries in cyclic applications will result in a shorter service life compared to cyclic design batteries.
Whilst cyclic batteries are made for continuous use, longer overall service life (number of recharges) will be achieved by recharging before the battery goes flat, even if only a small amount of the batteries charge was used. Leaving a lead type battery flat (voltage is too low to drive equipment) for even as little as 24 hours may reduce run time per charge and the overall life of the battery.
