MUMBAI: Relicell, the R&D focused battery manufacturer, has announced the launch of its proprietary gel-based maintenance-free batteries, which are best-suited for storage of solar energy and for home use.
Designed to cope with Indian weather conditions, the batteries have twice the life cycle of regular batteries, perform efficiently in both high and low temperatures, require no maintenance and are designed to work in a partial state of charge and in erratic power supply conditions.
Made using a lead-calcium-tin-silver alloy, the batteries are highly corrosion resistant. A micro porous synthetic separator helps avoid premature capacity loss and reduces depolarization. The addition of phosphoric acid to the electrolyte helps improve the life cycle of the battery. Being gel-based, the batteries are easy to transport and courier since there are no acid spills or fumes.
The batteries are available in the range of 12V, 35 Ah to 12V, 200 Ah options and are designed to meet international specifications. With prices starting from Rs. 5000, the batteries come with a warranty of 3 to 5 years offering a total cost of ownership that is below the price of regular batteries in the market. The product is currently available in three variants: Solar Gel for solar applications, Ultra Gel for home inverters and deep cycle UPS applications. Relicell will soon also offer gel batteries for electric vehicles like e-rickshaws, scooters, golf carts, buggies etc.
Announcing the launch, Founder and Managing Director Biju Bruno said, "The largest adoption of these batteries is likely to be in home inverters and solar energy storage devices. While home users can benefit from no maintenance, absence of fumes and spillages along with longer life cycles, batteries used to store solar energy will be able to operate under very hot conditions and even in a state of partial charge."
Relicell is the brand name of batteries manufactured by Greenvision Technologies, a leading provider of energy storage solutions, headquartered in Bangalore, India. Greenvision specializes in the research, design and manufacture of lead acid batteries for diverse applications as UPS standby power, emergency lighting, solar & wind energy storage, telecommunications power supply, electric vehicles, railway signaling systems, etc. Greenvision's research team has developed many innovative products and filed for several patents. Relicell batteries are tested and certified by leading test laboratories like CPRI (Central Power Research Institute) and ETDC (Electronic Test & Development Centre). Greenvision has obtained ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications. With 11 primary warehousing locations across India, 64 distribution warehouses and service centers and over 3000 dealer outlets, Relicell batteries are well distributed and supported throughout India.
