Know your rights! And other battery information relating to AGM mobility batteries.

Know your rights!

Know your rights; At the mobility battery store, we understand the importance of helping! So if you have any questions regarding your rights as a person with a disability, please take a look at the following site!

There are millions of our citizens that have had their lives improved, since buying a mobility scooter or wheelchair. There is no doubt that the sheer choice of these machines has created a better and more mobile world. Furthermore, mobility scooters have helped this part of our society to be more independent and given a chance for a better life. Most of these scooters and wheelchairs are powered by “sealed lead acid batteries”. These are mainly AGM batteries. Here at Mobilitybatterystore.co.uk we offer a wide range of such products at a competitive price online with a next working day delivery to most UK postcodes.

About the batteries.

The sealed batteries are possible, because of the different plate materials that are used. The plates used, contain lead-calcium and lead-strontium. These materials help the battery to reduce any fluid loss and so van be sealed. This type of battery also has valve regulated vents in case of extreme overheating. If overheating occurs then, the valves will release the pressure from inside the battery, averting an explosion.

This type of battery, as I have said is used mainly in the automotive sector and should not be left to discharge below 25% for a longer battery life.

The most common used batteries that are in large battery backup systems are the AGM type. These batteries are completely sealed and can be used in any position including upside down. These batteries are also valve regulated and completely sealed. The AGM batteries are therefore more stable and suitable to be used indoors on such installations as UPS battery backup systems.

When lead-acid batteries are kept in storage they lose charge at about 5% of their capacity per month. Stored batteries should if possible be kept in a cool place. The warmer it gets, the more the battery will self-discharge.

If a lead-acid battery is not used and left in a discharged state then it will start to what we call “sulphate” This sulphation is caused by a chemical action as the Sulphur that is present in the acid combines with the lead plates, and forms “lead-sulphate”
