Types of batteries

Lead acid batteries: The accumulator or lead-acid battery, also called acid-lead battery it's a type of battery (wet battery)

very common in conventional vehicles, such as starter battery, although they are also used as a traction battery electric vehicles. It usually provides a voltage of 6 V, 12 V or another multiple of 2, since the voltage supplied by each cell is 2 V. They can supply relatively large current currents, which makes them ideal for  engines starters.

Although its use and best known form is the  car battery, this accumulator has many applications.

Sealed batteries AGM:  The batteries of lead/AGM (AGM  is the abbreviation of Absortion Glass Mat) They are made of absorbent glass fiber, so that when assembling the battery  and introduce the liquid electrolyte, it is absorbed by the fiber AGM  It operates like a sponge.


GEL batteries: Gel batteries are named after the gel cells that power the battery. These cells are filled with a mixture of sulfur and silica that immobilizes the electrolytes.

Gel batteries are more similar to absorbed glass fiber batteries. Both batteries are very deep in their cycles, which means they should not be recharged until their charge is below 50 percent. Silica gel batteries use an additive that increases the rigidity of the gel. These batteries are more sensitive when it comes to overcharging. Gel batteries should always be removed from their charger as soon as they reach 100 percent.


Lithium Batteries: The battery  of lithium, also called battery Li-Ion, is a device designed for the storage of electrical energy that uses an electrolyte salt lithium that obtains the necessary ions for the reversible electrochemical reaction that takes place between the cathode and the anode.
