Why Lead Crystal Technology?
To overcome the fundamental flaws of lead-acid, gel and AGM batteries, such as plate sulphation, active material loss, high water loss rate, serious acid pollution, poor low temperature performance, short life cycle, poor transport safety, and other inherent problems, Betta Batteries successfully developed Lead Crystal® batteries. Our Unique proprietary technology has allowed us to develop a battery that doesn’t solve the problems around Lead Acid, gel and AGM batteries, it eliminates them!
Betta Batteries Hong Kong is the Only manufacturing facility of Lead Crystal® batteries worldwide.
With a handful of Patents developed by our clever Chief Scientist, we’re making sure our technology stays unique.
When you begin to analyse a Lead Crystal® Battery, you start to realise that the similarities to traditional Pure Lead batteries stops with the case!
From the image on the right, showing a clear cased Lead Crystal® Battery, you can start to appreciate the thought and development that has gone into making, and keeping, our batteries unique.
Where Lead Crystal® Battery technology is different
Super Absorbent Mat (SAM)
Our Patented SAM soaks up the electrolyte. Unlike AGM (glass is an insulator), our mat combines with the electrolyte, giving a unique low internal resistance.
Pure Lead Plates / Paste
Our Patented Lead Plate design allows for the most effective power flow from positive to negative. With strength added in a special alloy, this is one reason our batteries are at least 10% heavier than regular Lead Acid.
< 5% Sulphuric Acid Electrolyte
Our Patented Electrolyte is almost as secretive as the recipe for Cola or the Colonel’s chicken. With the make up strictly guarded, what we can tell you is that we have succeeded in producing a much safer battery, with a 85%+ reduction in harmful chemicals.
Heavy Duty Busbar
What good is amazing performance if you can’t get the power out of the battery? By using more Lead on the Busbar and a special process to add the high quality connectors, it’s no surprise that we’re able to deliver more power, more smoothly. This leads to much longer ‘run time’.
The best part of all! After the first charge and certainly by the time our batteries reach you, the Electrolyte has crystalized. This means virtually no liquid, which in turn means minimal evaporation, minimal sulphation, no liquid to heat up on charge or discharge, all of which extends battery life!
The unique technology of Lead Crystal® Batteries
To overcome the fundamental flaws of both the lead-acid battery and the gel battery, we have successfully developed five battery patented technological innovations in Lead Crystal® Batteries. Our batteries have pioneered the concept of environmentally friendlier electrolytes so marking the iconic innovation of Lead Crystal® Battery technology. The patented technology found in Lead Crystal® Battery applications uses an advanced formula to replace traditional sulfuric acid solutions which in turn improves the application and safety performance of the battery. It overcomes the disadvantages of plate sulfation in the battery, has good wide temperature, deep-discharge and overcharge performance thus greatly improving product life.
What is a Lead Crystal® battery?
The unique Lead Crystal® battery consists of a number of special features including: a micro porous super absorbent mat (SAM), thick plates cast from 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 safer, high performing and environmentally friendlier battery. The Lead Crystal® battery can be used as a substitute for most battery technologies in the lead category, such as lead acid, lead gel and AGM.
What is the lifespan of a Lead Crystal® battery?
Lead Crystal® has a design life of 18 years. Check our data sheets for specific information.
What is the storage capacity of a Lead Crystal® battery?
The Lead Crystal® has an extremely low self-discharge and can be stored for more than two years without any top-up charging prior to use.
At what temperatures can Lead Crystal® batteries be used?
Lead Crystal® batteries can operate in a wide temperature range from -40°C to +65°C. Lead Crystal® batteries can even be charged below zero degrees C.
Are Lead Crystal® batteries safe?
Lead Crystal® batteries hold less acid, no cadmium, no antimony. Lead Crystal® batteries are up to 99% recyclable and are classified as non-hazardous goods for transport.
Do Lead Crystal® batteries charge faster than lead acid, lead gel or AGM batteries?
Yes, Lead Crystal® batteries can be charged up to 3°C without any impact on their cycle life. This means they can be charged 2-3 faster than other batteries.
Do Lead Crystal® batteries sulphate?
Due to the construction and chemical reaction inside a Lead Crystal® battery, sulfation hardly ever occurs. Lead Crystal® batteries contain less sulphuric acid. They do not contain toxins such as cadmium or antimony either.
Can Lead Crystal® batteries achieve a 100% Depth of Discharge?
Yes, Lead Crystal® batteries can be discharged in full frequently, even to 0 Volt. This makes Lead Crystal® batteries extremely resilient for deep discharging.
Can Lead Crystal® batteries be partially charged?
Yes, Lead Crystal® batteries can be partially charged i.e. you don’t have to charge them fully to be able to use them.
What size Lead Crystal® battery do I need for my application?
Please contact the Sales Department at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will size the correct battery for your application.
How long have Lead Crystal® batteries already been in circulation?
Selcoms-I has been selling Lead Crystal® batteries since 2016. Betta Batteries has been producing and commercialising Lead Crystal® batteries since 2009.
To survive in heat, nature teaches that you have to adapt with unique survival properties that allows you to cope with high temperatures. Plants and animals that fail to adapt, die.
So do old battery technologies that are not really designed for high temperatures. They will survive. For a while. But not for long. And don’t expect high performance. Like a human being that suffers from dehydration, your old battery technology will wither and wilt. Not so with our unique Lead Crystal Battery technology. It contains no liquid to heat up or evaporate and the unique design and technology allows it to breathe easily in the heat. And survive better. Like a camel trekking through the desert. It has survived the heat and humidity of Africa for a decade and we’re now running it in different applications in the UAE through the hot summer, just to verify performance. And our clients are amazed. You will be too. Ask us for a set and test them yourself!
TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
Understanding that the lowest Total Cost of Ownership is the most important thing we can give to our customers, we’ve set about really analysing what TCO means.
We’ve now created tools to allow you to compare the real cost per Ah of not only Lead Crystal® Batteries, but almost any type of battery. Take the graph on the left for example, using our Traction TCO modeller, we can compare to all leading battery technologies in use in Golf Buggies. We input your data – Costs, Usage Profile, Heat Profile, Charging Regime, Warranty, Logistics, Maintenance, Charge Efficiency and Discharge Efficiency as well, to give you an accurate picture of how much each technology is really going to cost you over the usage period you select.
Tell us what’s important to your business and we’ll model that too!
Reduce your footprint!
Did you know? that burning 1 litre of diesel fuel creates 2.68 kg of carbon? Most people don’t. That is because for each carbon molecule of fuel you burn, it binds with 2 molecules of oxygen to create carbon dioxide during the process. Less becomes more when you burn it. Completely counter intuitive!
With Lead Crystal Batteries exceptional charge efficiency & significantly longer run time, we can help your business reduce your fuel consumption and carbon footprint with our unique energy storage technologies. Ask us how!
