Sealed Lead Acid Batteries

These are usually smaller case sizes with flag type terminals, sealed cases, acid starved, and capacities of up to 30Ah. They can be mounted in any direction and are safer for use indoors and in healthcare facilities.

These batteries are ideal for small UPS, emergency lighting, and wheelchairs.

Due to its dependable service and low maintenance, SLA battery types remain the preferred choice in healthcare facilities. The larger VRLA is frequently used as power backup for cell towers, data centers, banks, airports, and more.

Stay on the road with trusted power from Continental Battery Systems.  Our most popular products for automotive and commercial use are often FLA batteries.



Next Generation batteries for traditional power applications

The elctrolyte in an AGM Battery is absorbed into sponges (Glass Mat Separators) making it non spillable. The sponges and the plates are tightly packed together inside a durable case. This results in a battery that is capable of withstanding shock and vibration better than its FLA counterparts. The separators also help to prevent sulfation and maximizes the surface area of the elctrolyte which provides a boost in overall power and performance.
