Wet Cell Batteries
Flooded wet cell deep cycle batteries are one of the
best storage solutions for the average off grid system,
and are the most common type of deep cycle battery
today. iSustain Australia sells a range of flooded batteries,
we also offer free delivery to most regional
Wet cell deep cycle batteries can be
forgiving to a point and are not as delicate as the Gel
and AGM's when it comes to an overcharge situation. The
cost and life cycle is certainly lower than the alternatives.
Wet cell deep cycle batteries have thick lead plates that
are alloyed with antimony, and are flooded with an electrolyte
and water mix.
The electrolyte levels must be checked monthly and topped
off with distilled water. Wet cell batteries can be ruined
by not maintaining proper electrolyte levels. Wet cell
batteries should never be installed in living areas, and
should be stored in a compartment with ventilation. This
is due to the gas that is given off as a natural result
of charging. High quality deep-cycle wet cell batteries
will offer good performance and are available in many
dimensional sizes and Ah capacities.
