5. These ‘gassing’ reactions occur when there is no more lead sulfate on the electrodes to give up or accept the electrons. They thus occur when the battery is fully or nearly fully charged. 4) involve changing the concentration of the electrolyte of the cells. 6 Graph showing how the open-circuit voltage of a sealed lead acid battery changes with state of charge discharges. 6. For modern sealed batteries the change is linear to quite a good approximation. It should be noted that this battery voltage cannot normally be used to give an indication of the state of charge of the battery.

However, this unit is inconveniently small. Instead the amphour is used – 1 A flowing for 1 hour. The capacity of a battery might be, say, ‘10 Ah’. This means that it can provide 1 A for 10 hours, or 2 A for 5 hours, or, in theory, 10 A for 1 hour. However, in practice, it does not work out like this for most batteries. It is usually the case that while a battery may be able to provide 1 A for 10 hours, if 10 A is drawn from it, it will last less than 10 hours. It is most important to understand this.

This feature is a safety requirement and leads to the name ‘valve-regulated sealed lead acid’ (VRLA) for this modern type of battery. 5, which occur on overcharge, proceed too fast. This will happen if the charging voltage is too high. Clearly this must not be allowed to happen, or the battery will be damaged. On the positive side, it means that such batteries are essentially ‘maintenance free’. However, this does not mean that the batteries will last for ever. Even if there is no water loss, lead acid batteries are subject to many effects that shorten their life.
