ANI  |  Gurugram (Haryana) [India] 

The gel batteries manufactured by Eastman Auto and Power Limited, a leading company in the storage segment and solar solutions, are making a mark in the power backup market and are gradually replacing the conventional batteries.

The highlight of gel batteries is that the electrolyte contained in it does not flow like a liquid ensuring an instant start and long-lasting performance. The minimizes chances of corrosion and making it compatible with sensitive equipment. These batteries have a low rate of discharge as compared to the flooded acid batteries thus minimizing the chances of premature failure. They are environment friendly, safe, secure and do not emit unpleasant fumes.

Gel batteries are preferred over conventional batteries as they are the next generation maintenance-free batteries that last longer and provide back-up power whenever you need it.
