  • Do you like fiddling with hydrometers and corrosive acid?     
  • Do you like having to add distilled water regularly to batteries you cannot access easily?  
  • Do you like the smell of lead acid fumes while charging your batteries?   
  • Do you like batteries that self discharge over 30% per month?    
  • Do you like throwing your money away on batteries that you have to replace every 2-3 years?    
  • Do you like batteries that are wasting you expensive solar power, or are you having to run your generator for long periods because they require 115-125+ Amp/Hours charging for every 100 Amp/Hours that you use?

GENERAL INFORMATION



 
     General Description
 
     These current technology sealed batteries are designed to provide the best performance in deep cycle applications.
     These batteries provide these benefits with none of the disadvantages of liquid acid batteries

  • DO NOT require maintenance (i.e. no water addition!)
  • DO NOT discharge corrosive gases in significant quantities
  • DO NOT self-discharge at the same rate as other batteries
  • WILL last three to five times as long as older technology liquid acid batteries   


     Gas Generation
 
     During charging, over 99% of gases generated are recombined inside the battery. This means almost no corrosive gases
     are discharged. This benefits the user as these batteries can be stored anywhere - even inside! NO corrosion of terminal
     and interconnecting hardware, and NO requirement to add water or perform maintenance testing



     Operation in ANY Position
 
     With the advance sealed and leak-proof construction, these batteries are able to be used in any position. This makes
     installation easy with more options on size and the reduction of installation costs



     Low Self-Discharge
 
     With the innovative technology incorporated in the design and manufacture of these batteries, a self-discharge rate of
     2% per month, or less, will be achieved at normal operating temperatures. Compare this with liquid acid technology
     batteries, which will self-discharge at 5% per week or greater! The AA Champion AGM batteries therefore give greater
     efficiency for the end user, providing such benefits as reduced generator fuel consumption, and better usage of
     expensive solar charging resources



     Long Service Life
 
     AA Champion AGM batteries are designed and manufactured to provide the longest possible service life. In a
     Deep-Cycle application, the UCH2 series (2 volt cells) can charge/discharge more than 2100 times to a 50% discharge
     level. In float applications (such as stand-by power supplies) the NP series (6 and 12 volt) batteries will achieve 3 to 5
     year service life, and the UCH2 series batteries 10 to 15 years. In typical* Remote Area Power Supply, Motorhome, and
     Deep-Cycle Marine applications.
    
*The above service life expectancies are based on a 20% capacity loss and 80% capacity remaining at the end of the stated service life



     Highest Efficiency

     AA Champion AGM batteries offer some of the very best efficiencies in the marketplace. Typically efficiencies achieved
     are 95% or better. The benefits to the Motorhome/Remote Area Power Supply user are distinct and economic. An
     efficiency of 95% means that for every 100 A/Hrs put into the batteries 95 A/Hrs can be taken out. Liquid acid
     technologies typically only achieve 85% efficiencies, meaning that for 100 A/Hrs put in, only 85 A/Hrs can be taken out.
     Economic benefits to the end-user are:

  • Reduced generator fuel usage
  • Shorter generator run-times
  • Greater efficiency of solar investments


     Lowest Installation Cost
 
     As stated earlier, these batteries can be installed in places and positions not possible with liquid acid batteries. The fact
     they do not discharge corrosive gases means they can be placed in closer proximity to inverters (and other such
     sensitive equipment) without harmful effects, thus reducing battery cable lengths and lowering installation costs. In
     addition, the UCH2 (2 volt) series come with a high quality set of copper tinned interconnecting links



     Lowest Possible Maintenance Costs
 
     These batteries are sealed and do not discharge corrosive gases and therefore do not require topping up with
     expensive battery water, or the laborious and somewhat dangerous procedure of hydrometer testing. The absence of
     corrosive gas discharge means that battery terminal fixing hardware does not corrode or require maintenance



     Best Possible Warranty
 
     AA Champion AGM batteries are backed by what we believe to be the best warranty in the market. They are warranted
     for 5 years (NP 6 Volt and 12 Volt series) and 10 years (UCH2 - 2 Volt series) service life, the first year being at replacement
     value and the remaining years pro-rata. As stated above, we believe end-users in typical Morhome/Remote Power
     applications will achieve service lives of fifteen to twenty years for the UCH2 series,and 5 to 8 years for the NP series



     Lowest Life Cycle Costs
 
     Studying the benefits of AA Champion AGM batteries will show that they provide the lowest life-cycle costs when
     compared with other lead acid based battery technologies. We believe that considering their longer and lower                      maintenance, these batteries show approximately half the cost of ownership as a similar capacity liquid acid
     installation.



     Deep Discharge Recovery
 
     Improved design features enable the battery to provide a better recovery after repeated deep discharges. This
     contributes to the extended life expectancies and is important in Remote Area Power Supply applications



     No Memory Effect
 
     AA Champion AGM batteries provide no memory effect after repetitious usage or recharge. This contributes to long 
     service life and is a very important feature
