SLI Battery Application

Battery Application & Technology

SLI batteries are used by most people every day and are produced in greater numbers than any other type of lead-acid storage battery. These are used to start automobiles and most other kinds of internal combustion engines. They are not suitable for deep discharge applications, but excel for uses needing a high current for a brief time. They are usually charged in a "partial float" manner, meaning that the battery only receives a float charge while the vehicle is running. A cutaway view of a typical SLI battery is shown in below. SLI batteries are usually of the flat pasted plate design.
