[India], Apr 27 (NewsVoir): The gel batteries manufactured by Eastman Auto and Power Limited, a leading company in the energy storage segment and solar solutions, are making a mark in the power backup market and are gradually replacing the conventional batteries.

The highlight of gel batteries is that the electrolyte contained in it does not flow like a liquid ensuring an instant start and long-lasting performance. The spill-proof technology minimizes chances of corrosion and making it compatible with sensitive equipment. These batteries have a low rate of discharge as compared to the flooded lead acid batteries thus minimizing the chances of premature battery failure. They are environment friendly, safe, secure and do not emit unpleasant fumes.

Gel batteries are preferred over conventional batteries as they are the next generation maintenance-free batteries that last longer and provide back-up power whenever you need it. They are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions. They do not require adding of demineralized water during its entire lifetime. They work well even during cold weather.

Saurabh Srivastava, President, Marketing and Product Strategy, Eastman Auto and Power Limited, quoted: "Due to steady pace of urbanization, there is a growing need for highly reliable and virtually maintenance free power back-up solution that meets the expectations of consumers. Leveraging a cutting edge technology, Eastman's gel batteries have an advantage over traditional batteries due to non-spillage and no requirement of topping with distilled water during its entire life cycle."

Eastman's gel batteries have a higher life span due to antimony - free alloy. In addition, low electrical resistant and high porosity corrugated silica material improves electrical performance.

Currently available in three models - E115G(115Ah), E165G(165Ah) and E225G(225Ah), they have a wide range of applications ranging from emergency lights, communication power supply, office automation equipment, electrical power equipments to solar power plants and water pumps.

Eastman Auto and Power Limited are revolutionizing the battery industry by incorporating the latest technological advances on various industry parameters. The battery division offers four products - Tubular Gel SMF Batteries, Tubular Flooded Batteries, E-Rickshaw Batteries and Solar Batteries. The manufacturing and R&D center for all four types of batteries take place in Nalagarh, Himachal Pradesh at Eastman's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. With the capacity of manufacturing 1 lakh 30 thousand batteries and with various Product Certifications (UL,CE,IEC,MNRE etc). Eastman offers innovative power backup solutions to meet the needs of customers. (NewsVoir)
