Long renowned for producing some of the best deep cycle batteries in the world, Fullriver have expanded their range of Sealed Lead Acid batteries to now include a full gel range. As the Australasian/Oceania distributor, R&J Batteries are pleased to be now able to offer this new product throughout Australia.

A gel battery is similar in construction to a traditional AGM battery, but instead of the electrolyte being suspending in a glass mat, silica is added to make it a firmer gel type substance.

Whilst the amp hour rating between like for like sized AMG and gel varies in rating, the advantage of a gel battery over an AGM battery are several including…
Excellent slow discharge rates
Greater efficiency in a very wide temperature ranges, particularly higher ambient temperatures
Longer life span, particularly in harsher cycling applications like mobility
Better recovery, particularly from lower depth of discharge
The Fullriver gel range also shares many features of the features found in their AGM range including
Fully sealed, non-spillable case
Does not give off gas
Calcium lead plates
Designed in accordance with IEC 60254-1
Maintenance free
High cycle life
Rugged construction to be both shock and vibration resistant
