Lucas SLA and Mobility Batteries
Lucas produce a wide range of SLA (sealed lead acid) batteries. These are often referred to as mobility batteries, wheelchair batteries, golf batteries or burglar alarm batteries due to their vast usage in these areas.
SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) Batteries and AGM Batteries
Lucas produce a wide range of SLA batteries for many applications such as mobility and golf. SLA batteries are often referred to as VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) or AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries. Many people mistakenly call them gel batteries.
SLA batteries are unlike many lead acid batteries in that they are completely safe to handle and under normal circumstances will never leak acid. This is because the acid is suspended in a glass mat material around the lead plates within the battery, so even if the plastic battery case were broken the acid cannot leak out.
Wheelchair Batteries and Mobility Scooter Batteries
Many Lucas SLA batteries are targeted at the mobility market. This is because AGM batteries offer deep cycling ability so can be discharged and recharged many times before their life is over.
Common sizes of Mobility Batteries are:
- 7Ah Mobility Battery
- 12Ah Mobility Battery
- 18-22Ah Mobility Battery
- 26Ah Mobility Battery
- 34Ah Mobility Battery
- 42Ah Mobility Battery
- 75Ah Mobility Battery
- 85Ah Mobility Battery
- 104Ah Mobility Battery
