Broadband Gel BBG Battery

C&D Broadband Gel (BBG) batteries operate effectively in broad temperature extremes, making them ideally suited for CATV applications. Gelled batteries more effectively dissipate internally generated heat resulting in a lower float current. C&D gel technology products can last significantly longer than other VRLA technologies in remote outdoor applications.

Features & Benefits

  • 12-volt monobloc
  • Gelled electrolyte for superior thermal management – Up to a 5+ year service life
  • BBG Gel Technology extends battery life with superior heat-transfer capability, and has a proven float-life expectancy in extreme temperature environments
  • Up to 220 runtime minutes
  • Operating temperature range: Discharge : -40°F to 160°F; Charge: -10°F to 140°F (with temperature compensation)
  • Separators used in the BBG series are made of polyethylene which aids in maintaining low float current when operating in elevated temperatures
  • Use of permeability plastics and a balanced cell in our BBG batteries significantly help reduce water loss, which contribute to long life at high temperatures and prevent dryout
  • Flame-arresting one-way pressure-relief vent for safety and long life
  • Advanced lead alloys designed to minimize positive grid corrosion and increase service life
  • Proprietary grain refiners extend life
  • Centered lug for improved performance
  • Large grid wires improve life
  • Removable carrying handle
