Use AGM not GEL. I personally could go with a Flooded Acid rather than using Dry batteries as my first Solar batteries.

AGS and Exide they say are better these days.

Use 2 batteries 24V system, it is way more efficient then single battery 12V system.

if you don't maintain your batteries properly, even AGM will die within 2 months.

did you set proper charge setting, did you water those Flooded batteries properly ?

Yes both dry and Flooded acid batteries can last for a long period of time, if they are used properly and are designed for the application you are using those in.

You can't expect a battery a motorcycle battery to last years in UPS application

Volta advertizes the following brands of VRLA batteries on their website.

6 FMX Series (12V) Front Access VRLA Battery

6 GFM Series (12V) VRLA Battery

GFM Series (2V)

I wondered where did they come up with names like 6 FMX since most Pakistani private sector people have little or no capacity for such sophistication. So I just googled these names. Lo and behold here are the results.

It turns out that 6 FMX and 6 GFM series are all China Shoto brands (www.chinashoto.com) batteries being manufactured by Volta. The link to datasheet for the 6 FMX series is given below. The GFM series datasheets must also be available but I could not download these because problem with my Net connection or with chinashoto website.

I called VOLTA to find out details about their tubular batteries. I was referred to their website which of course has very little detail. VOLTA however told me that these batteries are displayed in all METRO supermarkets. So if anyone visits METRO do visit VOLTA’s display and note down prices and Model Nos. of the tubular batteries.

every battery need proper charging. There can be few reasons for such early demise of your batteries including

  • Overcharging, the charging rate was too high
  • Undercharging the batteries were not being charged properly
  • Water was not added when required.
  • Batteries were not properly for your loads
My previous flooded battery lasted more than 2 years with Desi UPS and no Solar. While my current battery is already 1.5 years old and still going strong with Solar and Desi UPS.

A 100Ah Dry Battery = 100Ah Flooded Battery, if labelled properly.

You should read http://www.solar-electric.com/deep-cycle-battery-faq.html

Compare that with

Anyway,if you prefer Dry batteries, I will recommended, PowerSonic PG series or if you want to use Chinese Dry batteries, ScaredSun.

You will need to check with the reseller/distributors.

IIRC, http://www.jks-int.com/ had power sonic pg series in stock. you can contact them.

What was the charging current on your previous UPS ?
