Everything You Need to Know About Lead Acid 6V Batteries

Lead-acid 6V batteries are secondary rechargeable cells. In fact, lead-acid batteries were the first rechargeable batteries ever invented. They consist of 4 x 1.5-volt D-size batteries connected in series.

They are rectangular, with chemistry designed for heavy-duty applications.

You can use them to power other devices that require high capacity and heavy-duty batteries, such as camping lanterns, medical equipment, golf carts, electric-powered vehicles and backup power supply for UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply).

The batteries come in spring-top or screw-top terminals. The spring-top terminal type is for regular everyday use in smaller machines such as lanterns.

While the screw-top terminal battery is used where extra firm connections are required between the battery terminals and the wires like in electric cars.

Some of the more common brands include Fusion, Stryka, Mallory, Panasonic, Powersonic and MI Battery experts. These brands offer a wide range of battery sizes to select for different devices.
