| Sealed Lead Acid - SLA |
Sealed Lead Acid or AGM batteries are one of the oldest types of rechargeable batteries. They offer sealed construction preventing electrolyte leakage in any orientation. This provides for safe and efficient operation. SLA batteries are usually classified as "non-spillable" meaning they will meet all requirements of the International Air Transport Association (I.A.T.A. Dangerous Goods Regulations).
AGM batteries are typically sold as 6 volt or 12 volt batteries, and are most commonly used for UPS (uninterruptable power supplies), alarm systems, medical equipment, and emergency lighting. They offer maintenance free operation, meaning there is no need to add water.
