On general basis the energy consumed by a battery to give life to a steady motor is very limited and consumes maximum 30% of the battery power. However, some motors need heavy discharge to roar them into life. Thus instead of going for a more powerful battery, using a battery which enables discharge up to 80% of its capacity is a wiser option.
Deep Cycle Batteries are the batteries capable of discharging as much as their nearest full capacity to start the heavy duty motors that require extra power to initialize. These batteries provide exceptional output and satiate the functionality of a battery with higher strength which will cost much more and be underutilised if used on machines with lower requirements. Some machines need the discharge up to 75% of the battery power while some need even higher levels of output. Igniting a car battery in Cairns consumes barely 20% of the capacity of the battery which is again refilled in the process as the machine operates using alternators and energy restorers.
The batteries capable of high discharge are lead-acid batteries and can be customized to execute a discharge from 20-80% of its capacity as per the needs of the motor in context. These batteries can be small as well big in sizes. The size and capacity of the battery depend on the amperes of power needed by a setup where various machines are used. The use of a deep cycle battery is spread across various sectors and hence the demand for the same is reaching an all time high. Lead Acid Batteries are known to give life to robust of motors and keep the high levels of performance for long periods of time. These batteries comprise more number of active lead plates and the possibility of corrosion is negating through alternating currents i.e. via discharging and charging. The batteries are built to last for long durations of time. The casing of such batteries is ergonomically designed to prevent the battery from the hazardous affects of excessive exposure to heat or proximity to explosive products.
Some of the variants from the heavy discharge capable lead acid batteries consist of water which is essential for the electrolyte power generation which helps generation of current and thus, initiating the machine through passing the current into it. The lead acid batteries are also friendly to the atmosphere and can be reused to create new batteries or allied products. All parts and elements of battery including the protective casement, sulphuric acid, plates etc are all potentially reusable materials. The various added advantages that are tagged along such batteries definitely make these batteries worth owning and using as they are useful till they last and surprisingly they don’t value scrap even after they are rendered useless for the company.
The use of such batteries is vastly seen in the shipping companies, leisure boats for fishing, forklifts in warehouses, traffic signal pillars, giving movement generating power to the automobiles, computerized wheel chairs etc. are few of the areas. The use and utility realization for the need of these batteries is growing with the passage of days. Energy fluctuations cause computers to crash in an instant due to power cuts or voltage fluctuations, this can be prevented by installing UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) which also uses same battery to store the power and deliver the same when needed.
