Monoblock Solar Batteries
The most economical Monoblock deep discharge solar batteries on the market. Low maintenance and discharge. They offer a long service life are batteries composed of several 2V cells forming a single block with two connection terminals, one positive and one negative. The output voltages of monoblock batteries are usually 6v and 12v.

Open Lead Batteries or Acid Lead Batteries
Evolution of Open Lead Batteries
The Monoblock Open Lead battery was first built by Gastón Planté in 1860, without much success in society. A short time later, when electricity became more accessible to everyone, its inventor explained its operation again and the Open Acid Lead battery began to be mass-produced. Since then, improvements for the 12v and open lead-acid battery have been going on throughout history, and new prototypes such as GEL batteries or AGM batteries are still being researched and manufactured. There are only 12V, 6V or 2V lead acid batteries, there are no 24V or 48V open lead batteries, since the latter are achieved by joining 12V, 6V or 2V lead batteries in series, that is, adding their voltage.
Characteristics of Open Acid Lead Batteries
Open lead lead batteries consist of a series of plates submerged in a sulfuric acid solution, hence the name lead acid battery. These plates are electrodes that are positively or negatively polarized, and alternated inside the battery. When buying Open Lead batteries, these have the positive plates usually coated by lead dioxide (PbO2) and the negative plates are formed by spongy lead. The Open Lead battery, like the rest of the batteries, follows the principle of the so-called "electrochemical batteries", due to the tendency of these plates to accept or donate electrons, a spontaneous electric current occurs between them.
Common uses of Open Lead batteries
Open Lead batteries are present in many daily areas, especially in the automotive industry, they act as starter batteries, since they can provide a lot of electricity in a short period of time, or as traction batteries, which support high cycling. Open Lead batteries can also act as stationary batteries, giving small discharges over a long period of time. Undoubtedly, currently Open Lead batteries are indispensable in everyday life, especially in automotive, and today we are still investigating them to obtain increasingly superior products.
Open lead-acid batteries are also present in the photovoltaic field, which can store the energy captured by solar panels and emitted by the sun.
Type of Open Lead Batteries
Open Lead Batteries in PlusEnergy can be differentiated into:
- 12V Open Lead Batteries: these are medium quality batteries recommended for specific uses.
- Other Acid Lead Batteries: these are high-end batteries recommended for regular use.
Open Lead Battery Warranty
PlusEnergy Open Lead Batteries have a one-year manufacturer's warranty, provided their use has been correct. It is recommended for all types of connection, either serial or parallel, in Open Acid Lead Batteries, place a battery equalizer.
Installation of Open Lead Batteries
Open Lead Batteries are generally simple to install, but if you have any questions about your installation after purchase, you can take into account the recommendations for the correct installation of batteries, call us or send us an email and our professionals will assist you Until the set-up.
When should we equalize open lead acid batteries and how is it done?
In the wide battery market there are models that require some maintenance, one of them is equalization or equalization of charge. The application of this charge should be done after 20 cycles or every two weeks to make all cells at similar levels of charge and density, this is achieved by increasing the voltage to 2.6 V / cell at 25 ° C.
The regularity of use defines the periodicity of necessary equalizations. To be able to perform the equalization process correctly, you should try to have the minimum consumption in the house or warehouse to correctly carry out the load.
Equalization and sulfation of open lead acid batteries
The equalization process is nothing more than forcedly overloading the batteries to eliminate possible sulfation that may have been formed during the time that they could have been in low load conditions.
For example, if we have glasses of an OPzS battery at 1.20 g / l density and others at 1.22 g / l this would be an ideal time to perform equalization. There is no stipulated time, but for equalizations every two months we could be talking about 2 hours, but it is best to measure the density as we carry out the load to stop when the density no longer rises. Once we reach this density we will not get any improvement and continue loading it produces corrosion that must be avoided. Another important element is the fact that the battery should not reach more than 45º C, if it reaches this point we must stop the equalization. And you also have to monitor water levels as this process consumes at a faster rate than usual.
We have to keep in mind that AGM, GEL and lithium batteries should not be equalized since they do not have the possibility to quickly evacuate the gases that may form. The equalization process should only be done with other batteries, such as: open lead acid batteries, OPzS stationary batteries, TOPzS stationary batteries, monoblock, etc.

Ask us for more information about the features and customization of solar kits or open lead acid batteries.
Configuration of the charging stages of the different battery models (Lead-Acid, AGM and GEL)
Charging voltages, we can find them in the technical data sheets depending on the manufacturer and the battery technology, it is always advisable to check these charging voltages to ensure proper operation. Charging batteries with incorrect voltages leads to a rapid loss of life, it is very important to reach 100% charge and never overcharge the battery, for this we must make the adjustment of the different charging stages depending on the type of technology (lead acid, AGM or GEL).
Maintenance of Open Lead Batteries
Open lead acid batteries require periodic maintenance, since it must be checked that their acid levels are between the minimum and maximum that are marked on the package, so that in those cases where their levels are lower, the batteries of Open lead acids are filled with distilled water.
When it is necessary to fill the open lead batteries with distilled water, special care must be taken that the terminals are not sulfated.
In addition, it is recommended that open lead acid batteries not be overturned or lying down and that their location be in any case with the terminals facing up, both during transport and during installation and, of course, during operation.
