Deep Cycle Lead Acid Batteries

Power storage batteries are essential to a renewable energy system. Alternative energy sources don’t always produce power exactly when you need it. A properly sized storage battery bank will collect power when your system is producing more than you need, so you have electricity available at all times.

We carry the newest sealed lead acid (SLA) deep cycle batteries from Vision, for low maintenance power storage, as well as traditional industrial and RV batteries from Trojan and East Penn-Deka. While a large battery bank seems like a major investment, quality storage batteries will provide years of reliable power storage.

Battery banks can be configured in many ways to meet your needs. For example two 6 volt batteries can be connected in series to produce 12V power, two 12 volt sets can be configured in series to produce 24V power. Any series set (or single battery) can be connected in parallel to increase the battery bank amp hour capacity. So two 1500 amp hour 12 volt batteries in parallel would produce 3000 amp hours of 12 volt current, while two 1500 amp hour batteries connected in series would produce 1500 amp hours of 24V power. All of our batteries can be cabled in a configuration that fits your power system.

Home Power System Storage BatteriesProtect your power storage investment with battery pulse conditioners. Proper battery maintenance and conditioning will add years to the life of your lead acid batteries. We carry Pulse Tech’s patented pulse conditioners and charging systems.

Even if you power your home with an engine generator, having a battery bank can be a good idea. With a generator battery charger (also known as an AC to DC converter or an AC to DC power source) you can charge your storage batteries when the generator’s noise isn’t a bother, and then enjoy quiet power during the evening and night time.

We can help you determine how much power storage your electrical system needs, and what kind of battery care accessories will best meet your needs. Feel free to contact us with any storage battery questions you may have.

Our power storage batteries will be shipped to your location from the nearest available factory outlet, to minimize shipping costs.
