370AH, 6V
Large L-16 Wet Cell Solar Storage Battery $315.00
For larger systems or for upgrading from 'golf-cart'
batteries, these L-16s have long been the
workhorse of the alternative energy industry.  The
larger cell sizes offer increased ampacity and
lower maintenance due to larger water reserves.  
Treated and sized well, L-16s typically last from
seven to ten years.  2-year warranty.  Made in
Wet Cell Solar Storage Battery
True deep-cycle batteries that will tolerate many
80% cycles without suffering.  Even with all the
millions spent on battery research, conventional
wisdom still indicates that these lead-acid batteries
are the most cost-effective solution to battery
storage.  Because of the relatively low cost they
are hard to beat for small to medium sized
systems.  Typical life expectancy is approximately
three to five years.  1 Year warranty.  USA

  • Each cell will feature a grid of lead plates along
    with an electrolyte based on sulphuric acid.
    Since the grid is not supported except at the
    edges, flooded lead-acid batteries are
    mechanically the weakest batteries.  

  • Typically, the cells can be accessed via small
    ~1/2" holes in the top casing of the battery.
    The plastic container used for flooded cells will
    have one or more cells molded into it.

  • Since the container is not sealed, great care
    has to be taken to ensure that the electrolyte
    does not come into contact with you or
    seawater (chlorine gas).

  • The water needs of flooded cells can be
    reduced via the use of Hydrocaps, which
    facilitate the recombination of Oxygen and
    Hydrogen during the charging process.

  • Flooded cells have to be bought locally or
    delivered by surface transport.

  • Deep-Cycle Flooded cell battery
    manufacturers recommend a 4 to 1 ratio
    between battery bank size and the largest load
    encountered on board.

  • Flooded cells lose up to 1% per day due to self-
  • Wet Cells or Flooded are the most common lead-acid battery-type in use today.  
  • High quality deep-cycle wet cell batteries will offer good performance and offer the most design
    options, dimensional sizes and Ah capacities.
  • Deep-cycle Wet Cell batteries have thick lead plates that are alloyed with antimony, and are
    flooded with an electrolyte and water mix.  They usually are not sealed so the electrolyte can be
