The GFP series is a collection of heavy-duty Gel Monobloc batteries manufactured by Leoch, one of the largest multi-range battery manufacturers in the world.
The Powabloc GFPs are part of a wider Powabloc series, which features flooded, AGM & Gel batteries to suit a variety of applications & usage patterns.
The Powabloc GFP series features a range of Gel Flat Plate lead-acid batteries, designed specifically for traction and cyclic applications. The batteries within this range are Monoblocs, so-called due to their internal construction of 2V ‘blocs’ which are wired in a series. Monoblocs are ideally suited for deep cycling, and the batteries in the GFP series are more resilient to greater depths of discharge than their regular Gel counterparts.
The Powabloc GFP series utilises the latest in Gel technology, bringing a level of performance and reliability that routinely outperforms other lead acid technologies.
Inside a battery of Gel technology, the electrolyte is suspended in a thick silica-type paste that allows electrons to flow between plates. This design brings many advantages such as being entirely maintenance-free, having an exceptionally low rate of self-discharge and being more resistant to accidental abuse or misuse than a traditional flooded battery.
Like AGMs, Gel batteries can be mounted in any orientation without the risk of leakage. They also don’t require maintenance – particularly useful for machines that are utilised by a number of different people. An important point to note is that due to the sensitivity of the technology, Gel batteries require either close attention to charging settings or their own specialised charger.
