Lithium Ion Batteries

AGM Batteries

Lithium Ion batteries have a high

energy density, offering savings of

up to 70 % in volume and weight

compared to traditional lead-acid

batteries. They are perfect for cyclic

applications, making over 2000 cycles

with very deep (80 %) discharges,

effectively storing 5 times as much

energy over its lifespan compared to

lead-acid.

The Mastervolt MLI range is top of the

line. It offers large capacity batteries

designed for extreme duty cycling, with

all possible features such as integrated

Battery Management System (BMS) and

MasterBus/CAN communication.

In AGM batteries, the electrolyte

(mixture of water and sulphuric acid)

is largely absorbed in glass fibre. This

type of battery is entirely maintenance-

free and there is no gas formation

with normal use. Not requiring any

ventilation, these batteries can be

installed almost anywhere.

Their construction gives a very fast

discharge at very high currents so

AGM batteries are ideal for systems

that require high currents (for instance

when starting an engine). The battery

poles can be unscrewed and this type

of battery can be combined with every

standard battery terminal.

Gel Batteries

Traction Batteries

In Gel batteries, the electrolyte is

absorbed by a Gel. This type of battery

is entirely maintenance-free and has no

gas formation with normal use. As no

extra ventilation is required, Gel batteries

can be installed anywhere. They are ideal

as service battery and for cyclical use,

and can be charged very quickly.

This robust Gel battery is designed for

regular and deep discharging (> 1000

full cycles), and is ideal for large systems

that require intensive use and a very

long lifespan.

The MLS (small Lithium Ion) range

offers the possibility of benefiting

from the advantages of Lithium

Ion technology where the need for

capacity or heavy duty is less. These

small batteries are the ideal choice

for substantially reducing weight and

volume and increasing lifetime in

standard applications.
