The GEL-EV series is a high quality collection of general purpose deep-cycle batteries from Leoch, one of the largest multi-range battery manufacturers in the world. All batteries in this range are entirely maintenance-free and come with a 12-month warranty, offering reliability and peace of mind with each and every purchase. A variety of batteries are available in the GEL-EV series, with power options from 20Ah to 80Ah.
All batteries in the GEL-EV series utilise the latest in gel technology, bringing a level of performance and reliability that often exceeds a standard AGM-type battery. Inside a battery of Gel technology, the electrolyte is suspended in a thick silica-type paste that allows electrons to flow between plates. This design brings many advantages such as being entirely maintenance-free, having an exceptionally low rate of self-discharge and being more resistant to accidental abuse or misuse than a traditional flooded battery. Like AGMs, Gel batteries can be mounted in any orientation without the risk of leakage. An important point to note is that due to the sensitivity of the technology, Gel batteries require either close attention to charging settings or their own specialised charger.
