Lead carbon and lithium batteries for the cleaning market

Battery Supplies, a company based in Belgium, offers a number of solutions to meet the needs of the cleaning sector.

Lead carbon
A perfect alternative for GEL and AGM batteries, Battery Supplies’ states that its lead carbon range offers a battery lifetime that will almost double that of a GEL battery and more than triple that of an AGM battery.

The negative plates of these batteries are made from lead and carbon and thus combine the advantages of ordinary lead-acid batteries with those of a super-capacitor. The addition of carbon ensures that these batteries have a higher charge acceptance and therefore have to be charged less frequently than regular lead-acid batteries. In addition, they supply more power, are more resistant to (extremely) low temperatures and guarantee a longer life. On top of that, this latest technology suppresses sulfation better than any other technology.

  • Maintenance free alternative for AGM and Gel.
  • Better cycle life: > 1300 cycles (70% DoD) and up to 1000 cycles with 80% DoD.
  • Excellent performance in (extreme) low temperatures.
  • Price-friendly.
  • Charging time: Charging time is shorter than normal AGM.
  • Lead carbon batteries can be used effectively without being charged 100%.


Battery Supplies also has a renewed range of lithium batteries, starting with its lithium cells and packs:

  • Li-NMC-O2 or LiFePO4.
  • Cylindrical or pouch cells.
  • Voltage <48V.
  • Different C-rates.
  • Built-in protective PCB, cell balancing.
  • Custom dimension.
  • Soft PVC or aluminum housing.
  • Capacity up to 40Ah.

Drop-in replacement
The company’s lithium ion drop-in replacement batteries can directly replace current SLA batteries in many applications. They have an excellent lifespan of up to 2000 cycles. These maintenance-free batteries have the same dimensions as SLA batteries but are much lighter (up to 70% lighter) and have, according to Battery Supplies, much better performance and economic life. The drop-in replacement batteries are extremely safe: they can charge quickly without overheating and gasification, they are also protected against overload and full dis¬charge thanks to the built-in BMS.

Also from an ecological point of view, there are only advantages: these batteries contain no acid, no lead and no other toxic substances.

M+ Modules

Alongside the lithium ion drop-in replacement batteries are the M+ Modules. With the M-series serial circuits can be made and the M+ series can be made with both serial and parallel circuits. Each block is separately controlled by a built-in BMS, and the entire group is also controlled by an external BMU.

  • LiFePO4.
  • Modular.
  • Serial and parallel connection.
  • Easy installation.
  • Flexible.

Traction and custom made batteries
If the standard batteries don’t fit for your application, then the company can as¬semble a custom made DYNO Europe lithium battery, based on your specifications, with an innovative BMS.

  • Quick and opportunity charging.
  • Maintenance free.
  • Cost-effectiveness.
  • Zero emission.
  • Long cycle life: 4000 cycles @ 80 %DOD.
  • Innovative BMS with the unique and patented dynamic balancing system.
