Why Batteries are so Important
An old or badly maintained battery set could affect the autonomy time of your uninterruptible power supply and result costly downtime should you get a mains failure.
All lead acid batteries, wet or gel, are prone to natural decay and have a design life of five, ten or twelve years. This is caused by metals and acid sharing the same plastic container.

What does VRLA stand for?
VRLA batteries work on the oxygen recombination principle. However, the recombination process is not 100% efficient. So over time, the internal pressure increases, and a certain amount of gases have to be released to maintain the ideal pressure. This is achieved with the help of one-way, pressure-sensitive valves which open when the internal pressure increases above a certain threshold and allow the excess gases to be vented. That is why these batteries are called VRLA or valve regulated lead acid batteries. Excess gases are also produced if these batteries are overcharged or discharged at rates higher than the recommended rate.
