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 …
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 …
What do discoloured plugs mean?
A brown-reddish discoloration of the plugs indicates an overcharging of the battery and a fault in the charging system. Tip: Your workshop can check whether your charge controller is working properly. Tip: Check the function and characteristics of your …
What waterproof brings
Ideally, batteries should be kept dry. Even slight moisture can promote leakage currents. If you've noticed condensation on your battery frequently in the past, such as with temperature fluctuations, or water can get to your battery, it's worth considering …
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 …
Avoid corrosion
The plates in a battery will corrode if they are not completely covered by battery water. Reasons for corrosion Sealing damaged before filling in dry pre-charged batteries Closed, low-maintenance batteries such as the intAct Bike-Power Classic are dry …
What is a solar battery?
Utility batteries, which can be used as temporary storage for photovoltaic (PV) or small wind systems, are highly cycle resistant, meaning they can withstand different charging cycles well. In the renewable energy sector, charging cannot be done with …
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 …
Supply batteries with armoured plates
Wet deep-cycle batteries in armoured plate or tubular plate technology are designed for the most severe loads. Due to their structure, the tubular plates used provide a larger surface area compared to grid plates and thus more active mass for the chemical …
What is short circuit and how do I prevent it?
Short-circuiting occurs when the two terminals or plates of a battery are accidentally connected together. This can happen if the separator between the plates is damaged by vibration, for example, or if excessive battery sludge builds up, closing the …

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.
