How are the Permobil batteries different from typical gel batteries?

Permobil’s innovative valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries feature a gelled electrolyte with an absorbed glass mat (AGM) separator. Gel batteries support a higher number of charger cycles, which is important for daily power wheelchair usage. The AGM separator, combined with a unique battery plate design, enables Permobil batteries to better resist vibrations and grid corrosion. Combined, these battery technologies provide users with increased driving distance and improved battery life.
