Lead Crystal® Batteries

Betta Batteries are the sole supplier of the patented Lead Crystal® batteries, which offers a high performing alternative to conventional lead acid, lead gel and SAM batteries

The Lead Crystal® technology consists of a number of special features including: a unique micro-porous super absorbent mat (SAM), thick plates cast from a high purity lead calcium selenium alloy (which ensures an extended life), and a SiO2 based electrolyte solution. During the charge / discharge cycles the electrolyte solidifies and forms a white crystalline powder. This eventually results in a safe, high performance and environmentally friendlier battery


Customers & Distribution network

The robust and resilient characteristics of Lead Crystal® batteries make them suitable for any application where lead acid, lead gel batteries or SAM batteries are used today.

Betta Batteries has a network of highly trained and experienced distributors worldwide. This enables Betta Batteries to offer clients unparalleled local service, including pre-purchase technical advice, tailor-made solutions and after-sales support.
