Your Energy Storage Solution

If you need power you can rely on for your domestic or commercial applications, don’t look past BAE solar batteries to provide you with uninterrupted operations and the maximum service life available.

In Australia, BAE has earned a reputation for supplying quality German built and engineered batteries for a diverse array of needs. These include RAPS, UPS, Emergency back-up, renewable energy storage for stand-alone and hybrid grid-connected systems. This is backed up by proven performance in the harshest environments around the globe.

R&J Batteries are proud to be the national distributor for the BAE tubular positive GEL range of products. BAE PVV and OPzV cells are available in amp hour sizes from 121Ah(C10) to 4710Ah(C100). We can also offer wet and flat plate BAE cells if required.

The BAE Secura OPZV PVV Solar range in V0 rated cell cases are compliant AS/NZS 5139:2019 - Electrical Installations – Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment

BAE Secura OPzV PVV Solar Battery

70 Ah – 4940 Ah

BAE Solar Secura PVV batteries don’t need to be refilled with water during their service life. Making this battery type is a maintenance free battery. This also eliminates checking of electrolyte level. The batteries are used to store electric energy in medium and large solar photovoltaic installations. Due to the robust tubular plate design, BAE PVV Batteries are excellently suited for highest requirements regarding cycling ability and long lifetime.

BAE Secura OPzS PVS Solar Battery

70 Ah – 4940 Ah

BAE solar Secura PVS batteries need only low maintenance and are used to store electrical energy in smaller solar photovoltaic installations. Their robust tubular plate design makes BAE PVS batteries suitable for the highest requirements regarding cycling ability and long lifetime.

BAE from Sunset to Sunrise

The sun generates energy of 1012 GWh per year. Innovative technology enables BAE Batteries to enhance the use of this tremendous potential. Solar photovoltaic systems gain in importance for off-grid energy supply. During the time in which no sun is available, a reliable energy storage is essential.

Construction of the BAE Panzerpol

The Panzerpol allows 16mm of post sliding whilst maintaining a 100% tight fit. This is brought about through the labyrinth post which is a great base for the plastic connection. A primer is used between the pole and the plastic is injection moulded onto the pole. The plastic coating gives tight contact between rubber rings which prevents acid creeping and allows easy sliding of the post up to 16mm. Positive plate growth is a natural effect of high charge rates and heavy cycling. This prevents the top cracking which causes premature failure of the cell.

Construction of the BAE Panzerpol

  • Labyrinth at the lead post

  • Primer at the labyrinth avoids creeping acid

  • Sliding pole: plastic coated lead post provides perfect connection to the  rubber ring and enables easy and tight sliding of up to 16mm

  • Clean corrosion free post slides through the bushing of rubber ring and  plastic coating while keeping absolutely tight and leakage free

  • Polarity coloured covers

  • Service Ring for measurements from all sides

  • While keeping IP25 – protection

  • Brass or Copper inlay for low internal resistance

BAE Tubular Plate Design

The tubular plate design of BAE solar batteries offers reliable safe and steady performance with stable capacity over the life of the cell. Designed for long cycle life with deep cycling. The BAE tubular grid casting uses antimony-free, lead-calcium-tin alloy which has very low corrosion characteristics and excellent endurance.The dry-filling process with ‘red’ lead gives low plate deviations in tolerances and uniform filling of all the tubes which guarantees low mass shedding and positive active mass which has extensive contact with the conductive lead spines. The large internal surface area also gives stable capacity and high cycle life thus giving you years of reliable energy output.

Red Lead

  • Stable capacity
  • High purity
  • Dry filling per shaking
  • Consistent porosity
  • Constant quality checks
  • Very short weight tolerances
  • Lower acid density necessary
  • Large internal surface – high capacity
  • Consistent high-quality level

Woven Gauntlet

  • Strong repelling force
  • Edge protection
  • High cyclic behaviour
  • Stable capacity


  • Strong, thick, centred
  • Lead-calcium alloy
  • High cyclic behaviour
  • Low corrosion
