Sonnenschein 12Volt 14Ah Dry fit Motive Power Gel Battery


The A500 Motive Power range are particularly suitable for applications with many cycles, these applications include the leisure and mobility market, with applications including solar/wind systems, electric boats, golf carts, wheelchairs and scooters.


Deep Discharge Resistant
Batteries can survive deep discharges and still recover their capacity. Even after 4 weeks left flat the battery can recover to 80% after 48 hours recharging and to 100% after a few cycles.


Extremely Low Self Discharge
Less than 3% of the rated capacity per month in storage is lost at 20°C. This means batteries can be stored for long periods without recharging.


High Cycle Performance
Special additives relating to electrolyte production make A500C battery well suited to cyclic applications. At 100% rated discharge the battery can perform 400 cycles. Considerably more charge/discharge cycles can be performed at lower partial discharges.

Quality and Safety


  • Each cell is sealed by a valve preventing penetration by airborne oxygen. Excess pressure "from overcharging" is vented and the valve resets. Gas within the battery is recombined to form water. Therefore no water topping up or filling is needed and no acid spill will occur.
  • Batteries comply with Federal Office of road safety Schedule to ACA 94-03 when transported by road and with IMDG paragraph A67 for airfreight.
