Sealed Lead-Acid Battery
A sealed lead-acid battery (SLA) is a valve regulated, spill proof battery that’s extremely safe to use. All of the gases produced during a normal usage are reused or “recombined” so there is never a need to add electrolyte. Because of this type of construction this type of battery is leak-proof and can be installed in any position, even upside down. Under normal usage you can expect 4 or 5 years of dependable service.
There are two specific applications for these types of batteries: Primary Power and Standby Power. The power pack you use to jump start your car would be a good example of primary power. Inside your unit is a sealed lead-acid battery providing the needed power. Medical apparatus, electric wheelchairs and kids ride on toys are other examples of the primary power the SLA battery provides.
Standby power applications for the SLA battery would include UPS systems, emergency lighting units, fire & burglar alarms and telecommunication equipment. The SLA battery is used anywhere there is a need for memory protection.
