Choosing Your Battery : Gel Batteries vs. AGM Batteries

Each battery has its advantages and disadvantages, it is therefore important to choose the right battery for your application.

Advantages of Gel batteries:

  • Full recovery from deep discharge even when the battery is not recharged immediately
  • Ideal for repeat cycling daily use 
  • Excellent performance over long discharges 
  • Good tolerance to high temperature applications 
  • Suitable where mains power is unstable 
  • Zero stratification due to immobilised electrolyte 
  • No equalization charge necessary 
  • Reduced self-discharge 
  • Limiting design protects the positive plates to greatly improve cycle life 
  • Thicker plates for reduced grid corrosion and increased cycle life 
  • Improved charge acceptance due to low internal resistance 
  • High resistance to water loss with the right charging set up 
  • Ultra stable polymer separator with glass mat for increased performance 
  • High resistance to shorting due to superior mechanical strength of the polymer separator 
  • Increased tolerance to poor charging parameters 
  • Can be discharged even when full recharge has not been achieved, without loss of battery capacity


Advantages of AGM batteries:

  • Lower initial cost when compared to equivalent power gel
  • Ideal for starting and stationery applications
  • Superior performance for shorter durations/higher current discharges
  • Smaller size battery can be used for higher rate discharges


Mobility Scooter Battery – Other Applications

General cyclic use in :

  • Golf Caddies
  • Golf Buggies
  • RVs
  • Wheelchairs
  • Floor Cleaning machines
  • Remote lifts
  • Electric Scooters and Bikes


Batteries have terminal options to meet the multitude of connection requirements. Haze Ev are all SLA - VRLA Industrial Monobloc units, eliminating the need for maintenance and the possibility of acid spills.
