This Interstate battery is constructed with the best materials, and utilises the latest absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology which increases durability, prevents it from spilling and allows it to perform the same at any angle. According to the Interstate Batteries company this wheelchair battery is manufactured in accordance with strict ISO standards.
The lead acid battery was invented more than 150 years ago by the French physician Gaston Planté and was the first rechargeable battery for commercial use. Despite its advanced age, the lead chemistry continues to be in wide use today. The first sealed, or maintenance-free, lead acid (SLA) emerged in the mid-1970s. Unlike the flooded batteries, the SLA battery is designed with a low overvoltage potential to prohibit the battery from reaching its gas-generating potential during charge.
The absorbent glass mat (AGM) lead acid is one of a number of SLA batteries. The gel cell contains a silica type gel that suspends the electrolyte in a paste in a specially designed glass mat.
Advantages of the AGM design of the 12V34A interstate Lead Acid Battery:
- Spill-proof through acid encapsulation in matting technology
- High specific power, low internal resistance, responsive to load
- Up to 5 times faster charge than with flooded technology
- Better cycle life than with flooded systems
- Water retention (oxygen and hydrogen combine to produce water)
- Vibration resistance due to sandwich construction
- Stands up well to cold temperature
- Less prone to sulfation if not regularly topping charged
Other advantage of this 12v battery is the long shelf-life. The low self-discharge rate allows for storage of fully charged batteries for longer periods of time before charging is required. Lower storage temperatures will further extend shelf life. It is also characterized by wide operating temperature range – may be discharged over a temperature range of -40°C to +60°C, and charged at temperatures ranging from -20°C to +50°C. The case materials of the Interstate batteries impart great resistance to shock, vibration, chemicals and heat. This 12v battery, like every mobility Interstate battery, is guaranteed to perform under pressure. Higher capacity, lower internal resistance and the ability to maintain high-level voltage during discharge give the battery longer life and quicker response times.
This awesome wheelchair battery offers the best options in mobility power. It is also backed by a one-year free replacement warranty. Each Interstate battery features Department of Transportation/International Air Transport Association symbol, ensuring you can take the mobility batteries over land, sea or air without removal from the chair. You can be sure your 12V55A interstate Lead Acid Battery will pass all travel requirements for pressure, vibration and crack/rupture standards.
So if you are looking for a really high quality maintenance-free wheelchair battery, the 12V55A Sealed Lead Acid Wheelchair Battery should be your preferred choice.
