In Charge® lead crystal battery technology.

Power Up uses In Charge® technology which is specifically designed to control Lead Crystal® batteries. The lead crystal battery technology is the most modern battery technology available today and is now available throughout South Africa. It provides double the daily charge and up to 4 times the lifespan in comparison to the deep cycle battery types, such as lead gel and lead acid, commonly used with standard inverters. The batteries are solid and expel no gasses or heat and can be kept in small apartments and offices.

See how the lead crystal battery operates, how many cycles it can be used for and, comparisons with similar deep cycle battery solutions.
