Reasons behind the Massive Popularity of Solar Batteries

In general, solar batteries are categorized into two different types: automatic, deep-cycle, and marine. Before availing a battery, it is necessary to know the purpose who which it is required. Also, it is necessary to know the composition of the cell.

Deepcycle batteries are the most preferred choice to be used for installation purpose. They may run down quite fast but at the same time, they have the capability to get recharged in a quicker way. The most common applications for this type of cells include solar PV, RV/boat, and also as an effective backup power option. The deep cycle batteries are available in three different types: Flood (wet), gelled, and AGM.

Gelled Batteries are valve regulated cells. These cells contain a certain type of acid in gelled format (by using silica gel). These cells work most efficiently and for a longer time in areas where there is suitable ventilation facility is available. But, it is necessary to know that these cells have a slow charging rate. But, this characteristic also helps in protecting the longevity of the cells. Most of the inverters can be used with these cells.

AGM cell are similar to gelled ones but they are less prone to spilling of gels. AGM stands for Absorbed Glass Mat. These batteries feature for a mat (made from fiberglass) that is placed in between the batter plates. After the placing part concludes, they are filled totally with gelled silica.
Flood cells are the most popular and commonly used batteries available in the market. They are of standard size and features removable caps. In fact, such cells are totally free from maintenance.
Presently, the demand for solar batteries has grown up by a massive amount. They help in keeping the environment clean and green. Moreover, they can be reused over and over again.
