Tubular gel technology

In some regions of the world, certain applications require high capacity backup solutions in unstable or off-grid environments, where frequent power outages put a heavy demand on batteries.

NorthStar OPzV tubular gel batteries deliver high capacity reserve power and deep cycle performance. A long service life of 20 years at 20ºC (68ºF) can reduce your maintenance fees and operating costs, and the high capacities give you more options to meet your energy needs. 


"NorthStar OPzV tubular gel batteries deliver high capacity reserve power and deep cycle performance."


NorthStar Battery and Eternity Technologies have joined forces to produce this tubular 2V OPzV battery range with capacities from 300-3000 Ah, to be sold exclusively by NorthStar for the telecom market. The new OPzV range will be built in the UAE based on collaborative designs between the NorthStar and Eternity engineering teams.
