What's the Advantage of Gel Batteries in a Solar System?

Advantage of Gel in Solar

Stand-Alone Solar Systems place cyclic pressure on the batteries storage systems due to regular use and factors such as solar drought. The Valen Gel and ENDUROGEL batteries have been designed and manufactured using genuine thixotropic gel which allows them to offer true cyclic capabilities required for Solar applications. For smaller solar systems, the Valen Gel range is recommended along with the advanced Valen ENDUROGEL VRLA battery range for the larger, heavier cyclic applications.

So what makes these Gel batteries the ideal battery for a Solar application?

Valen Gel

  • Ability to recover after heavy cyclic discharge
  • Genuine Thixotropic Gel Electrolyte means true Gel cyclic performance
  • Can be discharged even when full recharge has not been achieved, without the loss of battery capacity
  • Outstanding tolerance to higher temperature applications
  • Thicker plates reducing grid corrosion and increased cycle life

The Valen Gel has two unique batteries;

  • Valen Gel 12V21Ah battery is the smallest Gel battery available on the Australian market! Its compact size makes it the ideal battery of choice for dimension critical cyclic or solar sites. Ideal for use in portable equipment, road signage and small mobility scooters.
  • Valen Gel 12V26Ah battery is upright compared to other 12V26Ah batteries which are squat. This means there is less likelihood of any acid leakage and sets the 12 VG 26 apart, allowing clients to take advantage of a safer battery option! Perfect for mobility and portable equipment.


  • Catalyst Life Extender prevents battery dryout making the Valen ENDUROGEL the battery of choice for harsher critical applications
  • Ability to recover after heavy cyclic discharge
  • Genuine Thixotropic Gel electrolyte means true Gel cyclic performance
  • Excellent tolerance to higher temperature applications
  • Low self-discharge

Having the Catalyst assists the Valen ENDUROGEL battery in withstanding battery dryout - a major killer of VRLA battery technology. When the battery is subject to high temperatures and cyclic pressure, the battery is caused to vent. The Catalyst acts as a recombination unit, recombining up to 80% of these essential gasses which would have escaped otherwise and shortened the battery's life.
