Renewable Energy Batteries

First National Battery manufactures and distributes a range of solar power cells specifically designed for solar power installations. These cells store solar energy for long periods of time. They offer higher cycle life and a lower discharge rate than cells in conventional applications. The First National Battery solar batteries are also exported to Australia.

Solar power batteries can be used for:

  • Microwave stations
  • Radio repeaters
  • Remote or hard to reach installation
  • Renewable energy installation

RR Solar Battery Specifications

Recharging the Leisure Battery
The batteries are charged at a current equivalent to 0.1 times the capacity expressed in Ampere hours (Ah) for a maximum of 15 hours. (12 - 13 hours would normally be sufficient with a constant current charger, but 15 hours may be necessary with a taper charger.)

The duration of the recharge will depend on the extent of the discharge that the battery has experienced. As an example the 50 Ah type RR1 battery that has been utilised for 3 hours for lighting a 100W lamp would have consumed 24.9 Ah and therefore must be charged at 5 Ampere for approximately 6 hours.
