The difference between low maintenance, maintenance free and absolutely maintenance free.
Low-maintenance, flooded lead-acid batteries lose fluid during normal use. They must be maintained, i.e. the fluid level should be checked regularly and the fluid loss compensated with distilled water if necessary. These batteries usually have vent caps …
What is wear and what can you do about it?
With a worn battery, the active material has degraded due to excessive load. Modern vehicles with many consumers constantly place higher demands on the battery. The capacity of the installed batteries is often not designed for this. Prevention The choice …
Time for recovery
Before the winter or summer break, it is best to remove the battery or at least disconnect it and store it in a cool (ideally at 10 to 15 °C) and dry place. Charge every 4 to 6 weeks for 24 to 48 hours with a suitable charger. Check the state of charge …
What types of supply batteries are there?
In order to withstand the stress of cyclic operation for a long time without an excessive drop in performance, the active material in supply batteries is particularly well protected. Depending on the technology used, this is done in different ways: In …
First the format, then the capacity
A battery must of course fit in your vehicle, machine or device. Check the dimensions of your old battery or the available space where you want to install the battery. Check that the terminals are easily accessible, that you can reach them easily with …
What does absolutely maintenance-free mean?
Absolutely maintenance-free batteries are valve-regulated lead-acid batteries or VRLA batteries (VRLA = Valve Regulated Lead-Acid) that are sealed at the factory. Here, significantly less gas is produced than in wet batteries. The gas produced remains …
Round cell supply batteries
Similar to the tank cell, the surface area is increased by "winding" the grids, resulting in a larger amount of active mass. The box size is relatively compact, so you get the benefits of a utility battery in a small space, along with good starting …
Removing the starter battery or motorcycle battery
If you want to remove a start-stop battery: inform the vehicle system before removal. First disconnect the negative cable (usually black), also called ground or earth, from the negative terminal of the battery. Then remove the positive cable (usually red) from the positive terminal of the battery.
What does damage to the battery box indicate?
Damaged battery box If the housing is leaking, cracked or chafed, this indicates destruction by external influences. Tip: Look for a robust design in your next battery. Deformed battery case If the housing is deformed by heat, this indicates a defective …
Chargers for supply batteries
In order to supply the connected consumers permanently, supply batteries usually have a larger capacity than starter batteries, which are intended to deliver a lot of power, especially in the short term. Chargers designed for starter batteries reach their …

What is a Supply Battery?

Supply batteries must provide power for as long as possible for consumers that are not connected to the regular power grid or the starter battery. Either in mobile applications, e.g. camping or in island installations such as mountain huts, or in safety applications when the normal power grid fails or to compensate for so-called mains wipers. Depending on the application, they are charged with a charger from the mains or via smaller photovoltaic or wind power systems.

So not only do they have to supply power for a long time and then take it up again well, but they also have to cope well with changing current levels and voltages.

Supply batteries are cyclic batteries, i.e. they are designed to continuously deliver current up to a maximum depth of discharge of 80% when supplying electrical consumers and then to be fully recharged again. In contrast, a starter battery delivers a short, strong current surge for starting the engine and is recharged by the alternator while driving.
