Victron Energy - Batteries
Gel and AGM Batteries
VRLA AGM: design life 7-10 years
VRLA GEL: design life 12 years
VRLA GEL 2 Volt cells: design life 20 years
The AGM range has very low internal resistance making them particularly suitable for high current discharge applications such as for inverters, thrusters and winches as well as engine starting.
The GEL model range offer best deep cycle durability and overall longer life. The use of high purity materials and lead calcium grids ensure that for both AGM and GEL products have particulary low self discharge so that they will not go flat during long periods without charge. Both ranges are supplied with M8 drilled, flat copper terminals ensuring best possible connection contact and eliminating the need for battery terminals. The batteries are compliant with both CE and UL specifications in ABS fireproof containers and come with Victron's 2 year world-wide warranty.
Designed for telecom applications; excellent “floor space savers” for marine and vehicle applications.
The deep cycle AGM telecom series has been designed for use in telecom systems. With front access terminals and small footprint, the batteries are ideal for racked systems. Similarly, these batteries can help solve limited floor space and access problems on board boats and vehicles.
AGM stands for Absorbent Glass Mat. In these batteries the electrolyte is absorbed into a glass-fibre mat between the plates by capillary action.
Because of the use of lead calcium grids and high purity materials, Victron VRLA batteries can be stored during long periods of time without recharge. The rate of self-discharge is less than 2% per month at 20°C. The self discharge doubles for every increase in temperature with 10°C.
Low internal resistance.
Accepts very high charge and discharge rates High cyclic life capability More than 500 cycles at 50% depth of discharge.
Long life flooded tubular plate batteries
Design life: >20 years at 20ºC, >10 years at 30ºC, >5 years at 40ºC. Cycling expectancy of up to 1500 cycles at 80% depth of discharge. Manufactured according to DIN 40736, EN 60896 and IEC 896-1. Low maintenance Under normal operating conditions and 20ºC, distilled water has to be added every 2 – 3 years.
Dry-charged or ready for use electrolyte filled.
The batteries are available filled with electrolyte or dry-charged (for long term stocking, container transport or air transport). Dry charged batteries have to be filled with diluted sulphuric acid (density 1,24kg/l @ 20ºC). The electrolyte may be stronger for cold- or weaker for hot climates.
Lithium battery 24V 180Ah
The market for battery systems is developing rapidly. There is a growing demand for efficient batteries with a large energy density. Victron Energy has a suitable response for this demand: the Victron Lithium-ion battery system. This is comprised of a very modern battery with an advanced control- and security system; the so-called Battery Management System (BMS). The BMS controls the charging and discharging, immediately takes action when certain (critical) values are exceeded and safeguards an efficient energy-transfer.
Lithium battery 12,8V
- With integrated cell balancing
- For use without battery management system: CB series
- For use with battery management system: BMS series
- The BMS batteries can be parallel and series connected
Peak Power Pack
The Peak Power Pack is a complete substitute for heavy lead acid batteries in applications where high currents occur for short time. Being primarily meant for caravan movers, it is equipped with a built in charger allowing charging from the car electrical system during the travel with the caravan. This way the pack will be fully charged upon arrival to the camping site. If necessary, the charging is possible using the supplied adapter via a grid outlet. Charging from a solar panel is also possible.
