High Rate, UPS SLA AGM Batteries
High Rate/UPS SLA AGM Batteries are much different than General Purpose, Deep Cycle or Gel batteries. These batteries are designed for critical power, emergency back-up applications to provide a much faster power delivery.
High Rate batteries deliver higher watts per cell than traditional batteries, have a longer life, require minimal maintenance, and typically have longer warranties than other SLA battery types. High Rate/UPS batteries should never be used in an application where the battery is the primary source of power being used every day, and therefore should never be used in place of deep cycle or gel SLA batteries.
It's also important to note that there are High Rate batteries specifically designed for use in UPS applications and in Telecom applications. High Rate batteries for these applications are not interchangeable. Operating temperature, depth of discharge, and mounting orientation should be considered when selecting replacement high rate SLA batteries.
