Discover® Sealed Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries

Discover® Sealed Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries batteries:

  • Can be substituted into virtually any flooded lead-acid battery application
  • Excel in applications where traditional flooded batteries are prohibited
  • Excel in applications where levels of service or service intervals cannot be guaranteed
  • Excel in applications where the "cost to service" makes the use of flooded batteries impractical

Because of their unique features and benefits, Discover® 700 Series, Dry Cell Traction and Deep Cycle AGM batteries are particularly well suited for:

Deep Cycle, Deep Discharge Applications:

  • Marine Trolling
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Portable Power
  • Personnel Carriers
  • Electronics
  • Wheelchairs
  • Floor Scrubbers
  • Materials Handling
  • Aerial Lifts
  • Marine & RV House Power
  • Sailboats
  • Golf Cars
  • Commercial deep cycle application
  • Renewable Energy
  • Mobile Work Vehicle Power Blocks
  • DC Powered Air Conditioning
  • Creature comfort units for Class 8 highway vehicles (See key-off legislation)
