There are three types of batteries in the automotive market - lead-acid batteries, AGM batteries and gel batteries. The first type, although probably the most popular, is also the most vulnerable to leakage of sulfuric acid. The last two types do not require controlling the composition and amount of electrolyte inside. We divide batteries into starter batteries, deep discharge batteries and stationary batteries. Below we present gel batteries.
Gel batteries with a power of 12V
In gel batteries, the liquid electrolyte in the form of sulfuric acid has been replaced by a gel electrolyte (a mixture of sulfuric acid and silica). This type of electrolyte is more stable, thanks to its tightness reduces the risk of leakage and allows you to work with the battery in any position. In addition, gel batteries are characterized by high self-discharge resistance when they remain idle for a long time (they work even after 12 years of non-use) and do not lose their special properties when repeatedly charged and discharged. 12V gel batteries, due to their low power, are not suitable for starting passenger cars, but they perfectly fulfill their function in the case of buffer systems (as an emergency power supply).

12V gel batteries do not work as starter batteries, which does not mean that it is difficult to find another use for them. Medical equipment, radio systems, two-wheelers and quads, alarm and fire protection systems, power supply for caravans - these are just some of the applications for which 12V gel batteries from a well-known manufacturer can be used VIPs . Gel batteries are shock and vibration resistant and easy to transport (due to the fact that the risk of electrolyte leakage is virtually minimized). They can stand for up to twelve months without recharging, and this does not negatively affect their energy transfer capacity. The emission of harmful fumes during the use of gel batteries is completely reduced.
