VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) batteries are heat sealed at the factory leaving it completely sealed and spill proof.  VRLA Maintenance Batteries are designed for people with better things to do than maintaining their battery.

  • Permanently Sealed Spill-Proof Design means no leaks.
  • Advanced Calcium-Calcium Technology increasing cold cranking amps (CCA).
  • Longer Lasting means that SSB PowerSport VRLA Maintenance Free batteries last up to 3 times longer   than conventional types.
  • Sulfation Resistant significantly reducing permanent sulfation which can prematurely end battery life.
  • Added Resistance to Vibration increasing its durability & life.
  • Longer Standby Life means that VRLA Maintenance Free batteries hold charge longer in standby mode   or storage mode and need less charging.
  • Not Limited to Upright Use means that these state-of-the-art sealed batteries can be used in machines   where the battery is installed on an angle without the risk of leaks.

MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS:

Despite this being labeled as a "Maintenance Free" battery there is still some minimal maintenance requirements. The battery industry generally uses the term "Maintenance Free" when you are not required or cannot add acid to the battery because it is sealed. Like all Maintenance Free Batteries (no matter what brand), it is essential to periodically service the battery to ensure maximum life. As a general rule of thumb this should be done each time your vehicle is serviced by your mechanic.

Service requirement include:

  • Check electrical connections to ensure they are clean & tight
  • Do not overcharge battery. Maximum recharging voltage is 14.6 Volts.
  • Keep battery clean & dry. Use only bicarbonate of soda & water to clean. Rinse afterwards with clean water.
  • Ensure that unused battery is charged every 3 months or when voltage is below 12.6 Volts.
  • Failure to follow these instructions will void warranty.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Lead-acid batteries generate explosive gases.

Keep sparks, flames and lighted cigarettes away from battery. Keep metal objects away from terminals. When charging or using in enclosed spaces, provide ventilation. The battery contains sulfuric acid.

Should acid spill from the battery, Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. In event of accident flush with water and call doctor immediately.
