  • Sealed Maintenance Free   Valve regulated, spill proof construction allows trouble free, safe operation . Can be supplied as a standard vertical installation or by special request, for a horizontal installation. The sealed system eliminates electrolyte checking and water addition. The gases generated are recombined internally during normal use.
  • Shelf Life and Storage   Special vents, high purity lead and grid alloys assure a low self-discharge rate and consequently a long shelf life. Lower Storage temperatures enhance shelf life characteristics even further.
  • Very Low Self Discharge Less than 2 % per month
  • Long Standby Service Life   Tubular plate design yields a design life of up to 20 years in standby applications
  • Cyclic Use   1700 cycles in accordance with IEC 896-2 (20°C).The number of charge /discharge cycles depends on the capacity taken from the battery (a function of discharge rate and depth of discharge) operating temperature and charging method.
  • Design Flexibility   Batteries may be used in series and/or parallel to give you choice of voltage and capacity.
  • Compact Design   Power-Sonic Batteries utilise the state of the art design, highest grade materials, and a carefully controlled plate making process to provide excellent output per cell.
  • Designed-in Reliability     Cutting edge, manufacturing and process control combined with strict quality assurance procedures guarantee consistent and dependable performance.
  • Wide Operating Temperature Range Charge: -15 to 50° C   Discharge: -15 to 60° C Storage: -20° to + 50° C (in fully charged condition)

Accurate CAD models coming soon…

August 28, 2012

We are currently creating accurate CAD models of our popular ranges as we speak.

The models will be used to help our customers with their product designs, UPS systems and also getting up close to the products from your office chair!

This little video shows off the detail used in this PS12170 (12V 17Ah) model.

Our vision is to have these models up on our website so you can digitally pick them up and spin them around. In the mean-time if you use a CAD program such as Sketchup you can download models from here.

Powering The Gadget Show

November 9, 2011

The Gadget Show is a popular program from North One TV, aired on Channel 5, that broadcasts the latest tech news and previews/reviews the latest gadgets from around the world. It’s now into its 16th Series and boasts very large viewing figures making The Gadget Show an extremely popular TV series.

Power-Sonic Europe Ltd  have worked with North One Television to assist the Gadget Show team create the “Gadget Bags” seen in Series 16 2011, Episode 12. The segment for the Gadget Bags see’s presenters Suzi Perry & Ortis Deley team up with designers and engineers to produce two types of high-tech bags.

Suzi’s bag is at first sight a conventional record bag but has built-in devices for theft prevention including some ingenious way’s to deter pick pockets and bag snatchers. Ortis’ bag is more like a hard suitcase. This bag has a built-in tablet computer, an iPhone dock/charger, an inflatable pop out bed and a motorised fold out scooter! All powered by our Power-Sonic PS12120.

Our  standard range Sealed Lead Acid batteries are valve regulated, have a spill proof construction which allows trouble-free and safe operation in almost any position*. The sealed system eliminates electrolyte checking and water addition too. Special vents, high purity lead (Pb) and grid alloys assure a low self-discharge rate and consequently a long shelf life. Storing the batteries at lower temperatures can also enhance the shelf life characteristics even further which make our batteries versatile in almost all conditions.
