SLA Battery Storage

Our batteries have a low self-discharge rate which permits storage of a fully charged battery up to a year. However, it is important that a battery be charged within six months after receipt to account for the storage from the date of manufacture to the date of purchase. Otherwise, permanent loss of capacity might occur as a result of sulfation. The rate of self-discharge will vary in accordance with the ambient temperature, the higher the temperature the higher the rate of self-discharge.
