What is the difference between a gel battery and a lead acid battery?
Lead-acid batteries include two types of gel and liquids. These two types of batteries are used according to geographical division. Gel batteries have strong cold resistance. Below 0 degrees below 15 degrees, their working energy efficiency is far superior to that of liquid batteries. , its insulation performance is very good, if you live in a place where the temperature is very low in winter, you can choose a gel battery
The liquid acid battery also has its own characteristics, and its heat dissipation capability is relatively strong. It is suitable for areas with more than 38 degrees in summer. In this temperature environment, if the colloid is selected, it is easy to cause the battery to become hot when the riding time is long, or even appear the phenomenon of drumming.
So the two types of batteries are not absolutely good or bad, see your fit to choose.
The gel battery is better.
Gel batteries are a developmental classification of lead-acid batteries. The simplest method is to add a gelling agent to the sulfuric acid to make the sulfuric acid electro-hydraulic into a colloidal state. A battery in which electro-hydraulic is colloidal is often referred to as a gel battery.
Broadly speaking, the difference between a colloidal battery and a conventional lead-acid battery is not only that the electro-hydraulic is changed to gelatinous. For example, a non-solidified aqueous colloid is the same gel battery from the electrochemical classification structure and characteristics. Another example is the attachment of polymer materials in the grid, commonly known as ceramic grids, which can also be regarded as the application characteristics of gel batteries. Recently, the laboratory has added a targeting coupling agent to the plate formulation, which greatly improved the reaction utilization rate of the active material of the plate. According to non-public data, the energy ratio of 70 wh/kg can be achieved. Industrial practice at this stage and application examples of colloidal batteries to be industrialized.
The difference between gel batteries and conventional lead-acid batteries is further developed from the initial understanding of electrolyte gelation to the electrochemical properties of electrolyte substrates and their application in grids and active materials. Its most important feature is: with a small industrial cost, along the 150-year-old lead-acid battery industry road to produce a better battery, its discharge curve is straight, the turning point is high, than the energy, especially the specific power Conventional lead-acid batteries are more than 20% larger, and their lifespan is generally about twice as long as conventional lead-acid batteries. The high-temperature and low-temperature characteristics are much better.
