Product Details

Yuasa YUCEL Series Lead Acid Batteries

The Yuasa YUCEL series is specially designed for general purpose applications requiring a high rate discharge. This high-quality, rechargeable sealed lead acid battery ensures that no electrolyte leakages occur from the case or terminals.

Why would you buy a YUCEL rechargeable battery?

YUCEL batteries are almost entirely maintenance-free with perfectly sealed construction and the recombination of gases within the cell. The YUCEL batteries use a unique electrolyte suspension system incorporating a microfine glass mat (AGM) to retain the maximum amount of electrolyte in the cells. The electrolyte is retained in the separator material and there is no free electrolyte to escape from the cells.

What are lead-acid rechargeable batteries used for?
Lead-acid batteries are widely used if surge current is critical, even if other designs could provide higher energy densities. Large-format lead-acid designs are widely used in settings like hospitals, and in stand-alone power systems. Their surge current properties make them attractive for use in motor vehicles to provide the high current required by starter motors.

Are Lead Acid Rechargeable Batteries Harmful?
Lead-acid batteries contain chemicals that have the potential to be harmful to both your health and the environment. They contain lead which is a highly toxic metal and sulfuric acid which is a corrosive electrolyte solution. Proper handling procedures must be followed at all times.

How to dispose of Lead Acid Batteries?
These batteries do contain hazardous chemicals so recycling is the only way to dispose of them.
Recycle responsibly. A wide range of schemes are available.
