Deltran Solar Battery Tender Application

by on Aug.18, 2011, under Battery Tenders, Solar

Thought a discussion of some typical battery “Group Codes” would be helpful…

Common battery size codes, i.e.,”Group” sizes, are based upon the physical size and terminal placement – NOT a measure of battery capacity.

Some typical Battery Group codes are: U1, 24, 27, and 31

Group U1    34-40 Amp hours 12 volts    (powersport, motorcycle, atv, jet ski, lawn equipment)

Charge maintained with Deltran 5W Solar Charger – 270 mA

Example solar application batteries of the U1 Group code:

Deka/MK 8GU1-DEKA Gel, 12 volt 31.6 AH

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-340T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle Battery 34 AH

Group 24    70-85 Amp hours 12 volts

Charge maintained with Deltran 10W Solar Charger – 540 mA

Example solar application batteries of the Group 24 code:

Deka/MK Battery 8G24 Gel RV Battery (Group 24 – 12V, 84 AH)

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-690T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle 69 AH

Group 27     85-105 Amp hours 12 volts    (automotive engine start batteries)

Charge maintained with Deltran 10W Solar Charger – 540 mA

Example solar application batteries of Group 27 code:

Deka/MK Battery 8G27-DEKA Sealed Gel Battery, 12 volt 88 AH

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-1040T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle 104 AH

  Group 31    95-125 Amp hours Deep Cycle and Marine batteries

Charge maintained with Deltran 15W Solar Charger – 830 mA

Example solar application batteries of Group 31 code:

Deka/MK 8G31-DEKA Gel, 12 volt 97.6 AH

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-1080T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle 108 AH

Deltran Battery Tender Plus “Programmed for Gel Batteries”

by on Nov.19, 2009, under Battery Tenders

battery-tender-plusIn 1999, Deltran began offering the Battery Tender Plus – reason being…many more “AGM” type lead acid batteries being used in power sports engine start applications.

“AGM” (Absorbent Glass Mat) is a class of VRLA battery in which the electrolyte is absorbed into a mat of fine glass fibers.

“VRLA” stands for valve regulated lead acid and is the designation for low maintenance lead acid rechargeable batteries.  “VRLA” batteries do not require the addition of water to cells.  “VRLA” batteries are commonly further referred to as an “absorbent glass mat” battery or “gel” battery.

Bohemian Biker LLC now offers the Deltran Battery Tender Plus unit which is “Optimized for True Gel Cell Batteries”.  This 12 volt, 1.25 amp,  Deltran Battery Tender Plus unit is designated Deltran P/N 012-0156.

Understand…this version of the Battery Tender Plus is labeled “Programmed for Gel Batteries” (right on the unit), and is now available, as well as the previously supplied Plus unit lacking this labeling…and per Deltran…not programmed as such.

The 12 Volt , 1.25 Amp, Deltran Battery Tender Plus – P/N 021-0128 (replaced p/n 021-0069) is for use with “Flooded” or “AGM” batteries according to Deltran Corporation.
