Deka Solar Gel & AGM Battery Features

Both Deka Solar Gel & AGM batteries are built to the same rigorous standards.

 

  • Minimal maintenance, never needs water
  • Shock absorbent thick wall polypropylene cases
  • High purity lead calcium-tin alloy grids (patented)
  • Classified as non-hazardous, non-restricted for surface transport safe for air transportation (IATA A-67)
  • Non-spillable
  • Recombination reaction (recombinant battery) prevents escape of hydrogen and oxygen gases normally lost in flooded lead-acid batteries
  • Great for deep-cycle applications
  • Deka Solar Batteries may be operated in virtually any position (upside-down is not recommended)

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 are manufactured in polypropylene cases and covers.

Deka Solar Sealed Gel & AGM Battery Review

Gel electrolyte and Absorbed Glass Mat 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.

In an AGM battery, highly porous microfiber separators completely absorb and trap the electrolyte. Oxygen formed from the positive plates during charging passes horizontally through the separator pores to the negative plates, where it reacts with hydrogen and changes back to water to replenish the electrolyte.

After many reviews, we have found both Gel and AGM perform well in cold and hot climates. In cold climates AGM capacity loss is minimal and will have a slightly higher voltage at lower temperatures. In hot weather climates, gel batteries tend to outlast AGM batteries due to the nature of the Deka gel electrolyte formula. Both are considered "non-spillable". The "acid-starved" condition of Gel and AGM batteries protects the plates during heavy deep-discharges, giving more protection to the plate. Because of this inherent protection, AGM and Gel batteries are better suited for super-deep discharge applications than traditional lead-acid batteries. Deka Solar Batteries fit these conditions.
