BUYERS BEWARE: There are solar/battery web sites selling Batteries with Apparent High Amp Hour capacities advertised at the 100 hour rate (i.e. C/100) We don't believe the 100 hour rate is a practical listing for battery buyers. It just a way to make a battery look larger and better than it actually is (higher Amp Hour number)

All of our battery Amp Hour ratings are honestly listed at the industry standard 20 hour rate (a lower Amp Hour number) Our low pricing is always the best... if somebody else's pricing looks to be better BEWARE of the 'ole amp hour rate switcheroo. We have been in the battery business since 1969 - Thirty-eight years. We haven't been in business this long by fooling our customers. Please give us a call toll free 888-826-0939 if you have questions or need any assistance whatsoever.


Lifeline Battery has been a leader in research, development and production of sealed lead acid batteries for the US Navy and US Air Force. Their current LIFELINE Battery series is designed for marine, RV (Recreational Vehicles), UPS, inverter stand-by and photovoltaic applications in order to correct many of the shortcomings of the sealed gel (GEL-CELL) batteries.

LIFELINE AGM BATTERY construction maintains the sealed aspects of gel batteries while reducing their chronic recharge sensitivity. In addition, LIFELINE AGM BATTERY technology increases Amp-Hrs., Cranking Performance, Reserve Capacity, Depth of Cycle and Cycle Life over gel technology.

 NEW AGM TECHNOLOGY SEALED MAINTENANCE FREE BATTERIES WITH TWICE THE CYCLE LIFE OF GEL BATTERIES & FASTER RECHARGE

This increased performance has made LIFELINE Batteries original equipment on many high quality commercial ships and pleasure craft including Island Packet, Pacific Seacraft, Samuel Morris, Elco Electric Boats, Washington Water Bus, Alden Yachts, Hinkley Yachts, Santa Cruz Yachts, Whitecat Marine, Equitable Ship Builders, and Broward Marine.

LIFELINE Batteries are original equipment on Fleetwood, Vantare, Marathon, Paramount, Vision and Royal motor coaches and recreational vehicles where inverters such as OutBack, Magnum, Xantrex and other manufacturers apply heavy loads to batteries.

Their efficient charge acceptance and low internal discharge also make them ideal for photovoltaic and UPS applications where sealed batteries are desired.

LIFELINE BATTERIES EXCEED SAFE BATTERY TESTS

LIFELINE BATTERY HAS SUBMITTED ALL OF THEIR MARINE, RV, UPS, TELECOM, MOBILITY (EV) AND SOLAR VALVE REGULATED SEALED LEAD ACID (VRSLA) BATTERIES TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY FOR TESTING TO MILITARY SPECIFICATION #MIL-B-8565J (HYDROGEN GAS EMISSION).

TESTING HAS BEEN PERFORMED BY UNDERWRITERS LABORATORIES ON THE LIFELINE BATTERIES AND THEY HAVE BEEN FOUND IN COMPLIANCE WITH UL924 AND UL1989. LIFELINE AGM BATTERIES ARE A UL RECOGNIZED SYSTEM COMPONENT.

AGM TECHNOLOGY - THE DIFFERENCE

Read our article  Battery Comparison Between AGM and Other Types

Some of the main differences between the old vented lead acid batteries and the LIFELINE AGM valve regulated sealed lead acid batteries are:

The electrolyte is absorbed in a glass mat (AGM) separator in the LIFELINE and it is spillable in the flooded or vented type.

The cells have pressure relief valves in the LIFELINE that are designed to keep positive pressure in each cell. The older vented or flooded type battery cells are open to atmosphere through the vent cap holes (should the vented battery be tilted or inverted, the result can be electrolyte (sulfuric acid/water mixture) spilled all over your equipment, a highly corrosive and potentially dangerous condition).

The cell groups in the old vented type batteries are loosely packed and thus have high plate separation. In contract, the LIFELINE AGM marine battery has every square inch of positive and negative plate material tightly packed and compressed with the AGM and supported by the walls of each cell. With this type of construction, LIFELINE offers much lower internal resistance ... greater starting power (particularly in cold temperature) ... and a much higher degree of protection against shock and vibration than the old flooded type.

TRUCK FREIGHT

All the Lifeline batteries up to 70 lbs are UPS shippable. The larger size Lifeline battery and quantities of four Lifeline batteries or more are shipped truck freight, which will save you money over UPS.

The best and cheapest rate for truck freight shipping is for you to pick your Lifeline batteries up at a local freight terminal. They usually will help you load your truck.

The second best rate is a commercial drop point. A fork-lift or loading dock should be available.

A residential delivery, if possible, is usually $45 to $95 more than a commercial business delivery.  Most residences are not capable of handling a 40' semi and most don't have the fork-lift capability to quickly unload.

A lift gate, not always available, (which drops the batteries off at ground level), is usually an additional $80 to $100 in extra fees.
