Leoch AGM Batteries
New in June, 2013
We found a new inexpensive sealed lead acid battery with a high cycle rate that makes it ideal for renewable energy applications like hydro or solar power.
The battery is made by Leoch® and is a valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery with absorbed glass mat (AGM) separators. It is therefore classified as non-spillable and maintenance free. Additional battery trays are not required for AGM batteries.
The deep cycle battery is part of Leoch's "Scrubber Sweeper" line and comes as a 6 Volt battery in the well known L-16 shape. The L-16 shape features a low 'footprint' suitable for smaller enclosures. Dimensions are (in mm) 295(L) x 180(W) x 428(H).
The capacity at the 20 hour rate (C20) is 390 Amp-hours, and the life expectancy at 20% depth of discharge (meaning your battery remains 80% full) is in excess of 3000 cycles.
All our solar batteries are offered as a 12 Volt set, which means you will get two of these beauties. Buy them online.
Also, soon we shall have more Leoch batteries in different sizes and capacities. Stay tuned for further announcements.
Despite the weakening Aussie dollar we managed to cut the retail prices for many of our other solar batteries; the sealed AGM batteries from Ritar were reduced by 15% and the German made gel batteries from BAE have come down even more.
