In the Heat of Summer - Trial 2, Abras
When summer arrives in the U.A.E, it brings with it some unique business challenges to the Hospitality market. Running tours/ service on battery operated equipment in 48°C heat is just one such challenge, but keeping the batteries in operation and safely charging is another. There are a few options for different types of batteries on the market - with Lithium-Ion accepted as one of the best 'new comers', but they come with potential fire risk and the possibility of battery explosion under charge/ discharge when operated in extreme heat as serious considerations.
Lead Crystal® Batteries use the same form factor, chargers and controllers as existing VRLA/ GEL/ AGM batteries and give the added benefit of extreme heat resilience, longer life and longer run time.
In trials we have conducted through summer, we replaced 16 X Trojan T1275 (120Ah) batteries with just 12 x Lead Crystal® Batteries 6-EVFJ-150 (150Ah) Light Traction batteries. The results were stunning. From a charge time of 6- 8hrs and a run time of 6-7hrs per charge, we're now seeing charge time of 5hrs, run time of 15-17hrs, and we're able to give a 3 year unlimited Ah warranty! Lowest TCO guaranteed!

Installing Lead Crystal® Batteries
In the Heat of Summer - Trial 1, Solar Lighting at Masdar City
One of the biggest advantages of Lead Crystal® Batteries is how they handle heat. Where better to put the heat tolerance properties to the test than in one of the hottest places on earth, the U.A.E during the heat of summer.
With loss of life attributed to heat of only 13% for every 10°C above 25°C, compared to VRLA/AGM/GEL loss of life of around 50% for every 7-8°C, Lead Crystal® Batteries last longer, much longer, in difficult environments.
With more than double the number of cycles/ life of the best of Pure Lead batteries at 25°C, it's easy to understand how we can be confident in giving our 3 year unlimited Ah warranty to 80% DOD
The trial is based on 2 X 12V (6-CNFJ-100Ah) batteries, working to 20% DOD per cycle and with autonomy of 3 days should there not be enough sun to charge.Expected battery life 8yrs

In the Heat of Summer! - Lead Crystal® Battery news
9th June 2017 - Augusta Golf Cars announce LC TEC
Lead Crystal Technology originally developed in the 50's by the US military has been commercialised by Betta Batteries with 5 exclusive patented technological innovations. Lead Crystal batteries were developed to overcome the fundamental flaws of Lead Acid, Gel and AGM batteries such as plate sulfation, active material loss, high water loss, acid pollution, short life cycle and poor transport safety.
Augusta Golf Cars and Betta Batteries International have partnered to provide a battery pack and a LCBM (Lead Crystal Battery Monitor) in order to circumvent the issues encountered when using Lead Acid batteries. Many hours of testing have proven the batteries to be robust, high performance, extremely efficient and able to deliver high capacities without performance degradation.The batteries are constructed from 99.97% pure lead and use a unique electrolyte that is crystallised offering an extremely safe, non-hazardous sealed battery that requires zero maintenance, has extremely low sulfation and plate loss.
Due to the chemistry of the battery they have extremely low self-discharge parameters resulting in a long shelf life and simplified logistics, have a very wide operating temperature range, are 99% recyclable and come with a standard 3 year warranty with an additional 2 years offered if used in the Fleet environment with a LCMB.The LCBM is a state of the art device capable of monitoring a number of parameters which are uploaded to the cloud. This information is available to the user via a web based application where the state of the vehicles battery voltage and current consumption, charge history, and the number of rounds played can be viewed. Any parameters that fall outside of pre-set criteria will trigger an email message to any number of recipients who can respond accordingly. The concept of repairing vehicles before they break now becomes a reality.
LC tec series RXV's have proven to be 20% more efficient than competitor vehicles, require zero maintenance, come with a 5 Year unlimited amp hour warranty, are ecofriendly and provide consistent performance.
