Sailing and other joys of life: New AGM Batteries | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Finally they are replaced! We had issues with the old batteries last summer, as their charge did not last even 24 hours. And we have basic electricity needs: compressor fridge, heater, pressure water, lights.
eric roberts's insight:

Lucas AGM batteries are one of the best quality batteries and are made by Johnson Controls, the Worlds number one battery maker.

Is energy storage about to go mainstream? | Energy Saving Trust

Is energy storage about to go mainstream? | Energy Saving Trust | All about batteries | Scoop.it
EST spoke with Andy Colthorpe from Solar Media's Energy Storage News - ahead of one of the UK's biggest ever energy storage events taking place on 28 April 2016 - about what's on the horizon for storage in the UK and abroad and how to overcome some...
eric roberts's insight:

Battery storage units, for storing the solar energy gathered by wind turbines and solar panels, is nothing new. There are companies that produce and "giant battery", by joining up  hundreds of AGM batteries, inside a 20 foot storage container.

These are used to store the sun's energy during the daytime and then releasing the stored energy to power the community during the night. At the moment, these systems are used in sunnier climes than the UK. Places such as some of the Caribian islands, such as Hawaii and Puerto Rico,where they have all year round sunshine have succesfuly reduced their reliance on imported electricity from the mainland. 

This would be a different ball game for the UK. But my opinion would be to start with storage systems aligned with electricity sub-stations in local areas. On sunny day's we would save energy by using the stored energy from the giant battery units for night time use. Wind power would still produce energy in winter-time, when sunshine hours were t their lowest strength.

AGM Start-Stop Batteries-BBL - Blog

New blog update now available https://t.co/SbNpGgGQc4
#blog #agm #efb #batteries
eric roberts's insight:

This article is about the use of AGM batteries in the start-stop vehicle market. 

These batteries have more power than the conventional lead-acid batteries. By more power, I mean a much bigger charge-discharge cycle. This helps when the car engine switches off at say a road junction to save energy, it then re-starts when the clutch is pressed.

ZCell developer says its battery for homes is more efficient and recyclable
eric roberts's insight:

This is where the countries with good sunshine will benefit in the future?

battery storage systems have already been successful in different parts of our planet. This includes whole Island communities. The batteries are stored in 20 ft containers and are charged by the sun during the day. The energy stored in the batteries is then released at night, making aa 24-hour cycle.

This system would be ideal for the remoter parts of Australia. And then spread to the outskirts of towns near to the outback. This will relieve the coal and oil powered national grid and become more eco-friendly.

eric roberts's insight:

As a regular walker on the tow paths of our local canals here in Yorkshire,UK, i have been impressed by the number of water vessels that are now using solar panels linked up with a battery bank.

This is what this great article is about, as it is also happening in many other places in the world simultaneously.

The most popular batteries for the storage of power, at the moment are AGM sealed lead acid batteries. I do feel though that Lithium-Ion batteries will be catching them up though in the coming years, when the price drops to a more competeive level.

The boat used in this article is a 4.0 cruise motor, which delivers the thrust of the equivalent of two 9.9 HP regular gas combustion engines. The electric motors are run on pure sunlight giving zero emissions, and can drive the boat for up to 50 miles on a sunny day and then the boat can be switched to battery power.

The boat is fitted with a 5 KW solar panel, charging two battery banks. One bank uses AGM lead acid batteries, and the other bank uses  Torqeedo’s Power 26-104 lithium batteries. It is hoped that data can be collected from both types of batteries to compare their individual performance and cost effectiveness.

These batteries could help create a more sustainable home.
eric roberts's insight:

This idea, of having your own personal battery storage system, is one of the way forward ideas that could be incorporated in new build housing schemes.

They are also affordable by the better off people who want to save themselves some money and at the same time making more use of an energy saving appliance to help make a greener planet. 

This will be going to my blog, so i have to research as to whether or not these storage systems are legal in the UK, or not.

eric roberts's insight:

Lithium-ion vs AGM 

I must confess that I nearly bypassed this article? There are so many of these battery comparison articles. Comparing AGM  batteries against Lithium-Ion batteries, is no old hat. This article is very long a throws loads of figures at the equation.  

The end result is that differences always go in the favour of the Lithium-Ion batteries. They are lighter and more powerful than their AGM battery counterparts. My own opinion is that we will have a mix of technologies and it will depend on the product manufacturers which type of battery that they choose to fit . A good example is that we have just purchased a new cordless vacuum cleaner with a Lithium-Ion battery fitted. I also bought myself a new lawn mower with a battery start( after 12 years of trying to start my old mower with a cord puller), the new mower was fitted with a 12 volts 5 amps Lucas AGM battery.

Which Motorbike battery-Choosing The Right ATV And Motorcycle Batteries

Which Motorbike battery-Choosing The Right ATV And Motorcycle Batteries | All about batteries | Scoop.it
You are aware of the importance of motorcycle and ATV batteries. Now how do you go about purchasing the right one for your vehicle? Do you go conventional or Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM)?Battery Types …
eric roberts's insight:

This is a good article that argues about the need to fit an AGM battery against the normal lead acid battery.

The main factor in my opinion is the cost? The AGM battery (absorbed glass matting) is probably twice the price of the normal regular lead acid bike battery.

The thing is I guess you pay for what you get, like anything else in life.

A good point to look at is that the AGM is a sealed battery and will not spill acid out if you accidentally tip your bike over, or God willing you should have an accident.

The normal lead acid battery will spill out the acid if such an occurrence should ever happen. A good make that I would recommend is the Varta Powersport range of motorcycle batteries. When the battery arrives you just add some special crystals that come with the battery. The acid then sets leaving you with a leak proof battery. Why they can’t do this with all transport and car batteries, I will never know.
