Gel Needs

Gel means that the battery acid has a gelatinous consistency and never needs to be filled or fluid level controlled. Gel batteries have very high resistance to deep loads and vibrations. Used in vehicles with demanding electrical equipment.

EQUIPMENT GEL are batteries developed for modern leisure with a lot of electrical equipment and high energy requirements. Their construction allows for a flexible assembly because they can be mounted in passenger spaces and placed lying. In addition, thanks to its high energy density, they are volume-saving, with up to 30% less volume requirements. They are spill and leak proof and the need for acid level controls and water refills are completely eliminated while the storage life is superior to other technologies. The batteries are also manufactured in a robust design that can withstand vigorous vibrations.

 

How to choose the correct leisure battery:

Step 1Understand the conditions of use of the battery

At Installation

Exide Gas

Battery location

Most batteries need ventilation as well as isolation when installed in the vehicle, since during use they will give off a mix of hydrogen and oxygen gasses. By using batteries with internal gas recombination features, minimal gas emissions are regulated by the valve (VRLA), so special ventilation or isolation is not required. VRLA batteries can also be installed for locations like inside the passenger room or under the driver seat.

Exide Inclination

Mounting Position

Often a vehicle’s layout will restrict where batteries can be installed. By selecting a battery with our high inclination feature, it can be positioned at a steep angle. This offers maximum flexibility when working around space constraints

 

During Service Life

Exide Maintenance

Maintenance

Traditionally, batteries require periodic inspections for water topping up, cleaning and recharge. This is sometimes arduous due to access difficulties, lack of time or inexperience. By using batteries with “maintenance free” features, time dedicated to maintenance will be drastically reduced because there is no need to inspect electrolyte levels or to clean spillages. Self-discharge is also extremely low during resting periods, reducing the frequency for recharges.

Exide Charging

Rechargeability

The engine alternator usually recharges the battery during driving time. Nevertheless, to keep batteries at a full state of charge, you can undertake complementary recharges by using chargers plugged into the mains during parking time. By using batteries with “faster recharge” features (together with efficient chargers), you can reduce the time needed to complete a full recharge by up to 50%. Also, recharge from the alternator will become more efficient.

 

For Vehicle Upgrade

Exide Energy

Energy Reserve

Batteries fitted to motorhomes or caravans have the capacity to provide the total amount of energy (Watt x hour) required for a trip. So when new equipment is installed or longer trips are foreseen, extra capacity will be needed to supply enough power. However, room for extra batteries is usually limited, so extension is not feasible. By using batteries with our “High energy density” feature, room dedicated to batteries can be optimised, as either more energy will be stored in the same volume, or the same amount of energy will require less volume, providing a space saving of up to 30%.
