Flooded vs. Sealed Rechargeable Batteries

Batteries have been around since the 19th century, when John Daniell invented the wet-cell battery. Daniell would likely be startled by the variety and sophistication of batteries in our day. Rechargeable batteries were one big step forward. The two incarnations therein – flooded and sealed rechargeable batteries – both have their advantages in applications ranging […]

Working Safely In Battery Rooms

Battery room hazards include; electrical, chemical, fire, respiratory, ergonomic, and sheer weight of the battery jars.  Addressing each of these concerns is critical to battery room safety.  In-house maintenance personnel, AC electricians and fly-by-night battery installers often do not have the training, experience, and correct tools to work with these systems according to published battery […]

What is Thermal Runaway?

Thermal Runaway occurs most often in a valve regulated acid (VRLA) battery when the rate of internal heat generation exceeds the rate at which the heat can be expelled. If this condition continues for an extended period, the VRLA battery temperature will increase until the cells dry out and the container softens, breaks and melts. […]

Front Terminal Battery Replacement: A Case Study

When battery manufacturer Power Battery became defunct in 2011, it created a large void in the front terminal battery replacement business.
