Deka Solar Gel Batteries

Deka sealed gel cell batteries for remote area solar PV applications.

Solar Gel

Time-tested Deka Solar gel batteries outlast the others.

The East-Penn Deka line of sealed gel cell batteries are field-proven with tens of thousands of solar installations all over the world. After many reviews, we have found these perform well in cold and hot climates. In cold climates. Their capacity loss is minimized due to low temperatures. In hot weather climates, these outlast traditional AGM batteries due to the Deka gel electrolyte formula.

Perfect for maintenance-free applications

The Deka Solar Battery series of valve-regulated, gel electrolyte batteries are designed to offer reliable, maintenance-free power for solar energy applications where frequent deep cycles are required and minimum maintenance is desirable.

    IMPORTANT CHARGING INSTRUCTIONS: WARRANTY VOID
    IF OPENED OR IMPROPERLY CHARGED. Do not install in a
    sealed container. Constant under or overcharging will damage
    any battery and shorten its life! Use a good constant potential,
    voltage-regulated charger. The open circuit voltage of a fully
    charged 12-volt battery is 12.8V at 68°F (20°C).

    Batteries manufactured in polypropylene cases and covers.
    Batteries manufactured with gray case / gray cover
    unless noted.

    About Gel Batteries

    Gel electrolyte batteries are valve regulated lead-acid. In a gel battery, the electrolyte does not flow like a normal liquid. The electrolyte has the consistency and appearance of petroleum jelly. These are considered "non-spillable".

    The "acid-starved" condition of gel and AGM batteries protects the plates during heavy deep-discharges. The gel battery is more starved than an AGM battery, giving more protection to the plate; therefore, it is better suited for super-deep discharge applications. Deka Solar Batteries fit these conditions. Contact us for more information.
