Having troubles with your regular flooded batteries? Well, it is time for you to move on to the more advanced technology. The Universal UB121000 Deep Cycle 12v Battery offers long service life, even when deep cycled. It is also lightweight, more energy efficient and provides high currents on demand. It is also service free so you can take that off of your to-do list. All these and many more details make this battery simply the Best AGM Battery out there right now.
Details and Advantages:
- Dimensions: 12.17 x 6.61 x 8.30 in
- Weight: 63.93 lbs; 29kg
- 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 temperatures
- Very low self-discharge
- Less prone to sulfation if not regularly topping charged compared to others in the class
- Model: Universal UB121000 Deep Cycle 12v Battery
Better technology, better results
Since AGM (Absorbent glass mat) technology became popular in the 1980’s as a sealed lead acid battery for the military, the variety of advantages stood out quickly. The sulfuric acid is absorbed by a very fine fiberglass mat, which makes the battery spill-proof.
The AGM battery has also very low internal resistance, therefore is capable of delivering very high currents on demand and offers a long and steady service life, even when deep cycled. As mentioned it is maintenance free and is one of the most reliable batteries out there right now. All that builds up to being amongst the Best batteries for solar energy.
The leading advantages of AGM, though, are a charge that is up to five times faster than the flooded version, and the ability to deep cycle. AGM offers a depth of discharge (DoD) of 80 percent; the flooded, on the other hand, is specified at 50 percent depth of discharge to attain the same cycle life.
Don’t mind the weather
Living in a cold region? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered for that as well. This battery stands up far better than its competition in terms of temperature durability. Low temperatures have never been an issue for this battery.
What makes the Universal UB121000 Deep Cycle 12v Battery stand out significantly is its weight. As soon as you pick it up from the delivery truck you will notice that it is lightweight, even though it competes with the “heavyweights” in the division. Also, while regular lead acid batteries need a topping charge every six months to prevent the buildup of sulfation, AGM batteries are less prone to sulfation and can sit in storage for longer before a charge becomes necessary. So do whatever you want to do, this thing will wait you until you are ready to go.
So if you are looking for a durable, low-discharge, service-free, high discharge battery for your solar panels this battery may be your new best friend as well. It is without a doubt the Best Solar battery on the market. Also, the AGM design offers greater reliability in extreme use applications, therefore don’t be afraid to test its limits, as it may surprise you!
