Lead-acid batteries tout longer life

Las Vegas, Nev. – EHM’s new heavy duty, sealed lead-acid batteries have grids made from a lead-calcium alloy that enables a battery float life of 15 to 20 years. The 6-volt, 12 A-h gel batteries, which rely on what the company says is a unique low-cost gas recombination system to convert generated gas to water, are thus suited to very long-life applications, including emergency lighting, fire and security and traffic monitoring, uninterruptible power supplies, telecommunications, and power tools.
