Regular generators and inverter generators are very similar devices that convert the chemical energy of the fossil fuel into mechanical energy (rotation of the internal combustion engine and electric generator) and mechanical energy into electric energy.
However, although their operation is very similar, internally there are several, very important differences...
BCI Group GC2 and Group GC2H batteries are heavy-duty, deep cycle batteries commonly used in golf carts and other automotive applications. Also, they are often used as deep cycle batteries in marine applications, off-the-grid applications, for powering medical and security systems, and similar.
Although they are by definition 3-cell 6V batteries, GC2 and GC2H batteries are sometimes offered as 12V batteries (mostly lithium 4-cell batteries) for building 24V, 36V, and 48V battery packs with fewer batteries.
48V lithium golf cart batteries offer many benefits including some serious weight savings, more efficient battery chemistry, a larger number of charging/discharging cycles, faster charging, longer range, etc.
However, the price of 48V lithium golf cart batteries is higher than the price of the 48V lead-acid golf cart battery pack - at least in the beginning. In the long run, 48V lithium batteries save both money and time ...
The car battery provides energy not only for cranking the engine, but it also powers a broad range of devices that may be turned on when the engine is off, even when the car is locked, like GPS units, alarms, and other security systems, multimedia devices, lights, etc.
While car batteries feature a nominal voltage of 12 volts, in real life, this voltage can be anywhere from just a few volts (or even 0 volts!) to almost or even slightly over 15 volts. The exact battery voltage depends on the engine being turned On or Off and the battery's charge condition, age, load, temperature, etc.
YTX20L-BS and YTX20HL-BS batteries are very similar starting batteries commonly used as a PowerSport battery, motorcycle battery, and for all applications that require a relatively compact battery that is able to crank small to medium size gas and diesel engines.
YTX20L-BS and YTX20HL-BS share many features and are, in most cases, interchangeable. But, it is good to know their performances and differences.
Electric golf carts are powered by onboard battery packs which must be replaced from time to time. Commonly, electric golf carts use 36 volts and 48 volts electric systems, although 72 volts electric golf carts are becoming more and more popular.
Electric golf cart battery packs are based on 6V, 8V, and 12V lead-acid batteries, although in recent times, 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V golf cart lithium batteries are also being manufactured. So, how many batteries are in a 48-volt golf cart?
BCI Group 49 or Group H8 are very popular car/truck batteries, commonly used not only as starting/cranking batteries but also as dual-purpose batteries, used for powering various loads while the main engine is turned off, like various winches, pumps, multimedia devices, etc.
While BCI Group 49 and Group H8 (or Group L5 or Group 88L5) are considered interchangeable, there are few important differences one has to know before buying any of these batteries.
Conversion between Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) and Amp Hours (Ah) is not a direct one, for one very simple reason: Cold Cranking Amps describe the ability of the battery to provide strong currents required for starting/cranking of internal combustion engines, usually for 30 seconds, while Amp Hours (Ah) describes the capacity of the battery and its ability to provide certain current for, usually, 20 hours.
Basically, Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) and Amp Hours (Ah) both describe the capacity of the battery and its ability to provide current for some time - they are just two extremes of the battery usage.
YTX30L-BS batteries are very popular starting batteries often used not only in high-end motorcycles and smaller cars but also in lawn tractors, ATVs, smaller boats, and similar.
YTX30L-BS batteries are manufactured by many brands and are available at many online and hardware stores and getting a new one should not be a problem. However, before getting a new one, it is good to learn a thing or two about these batteries...
Lawn mower, tractor, and garden starting batteries are used for starting/cranking internal combustion engines and sometimes for powering other electric loads, including lights, smaller winches, various pumps, and similar devices.
When looking for a new battery, one must pay attention to several details in order to get the right battery that will serve well for years ahead.
394 Battery Equivalents and Replacements: LR936, SR936, SR936W, SR936SW, AG9, SG9, LR45, SR45 Batteries
394, LR936, SR936, SR936W, SR936SW, AG9, SG9, LR45, SR45, etc. batteries are small and compact button/coin-cell batteries commonly used in toys, micro-flashlights, watches, wearable electronics, remote controls, and similar.
These very popular batteries come in alkaline and silver-oxide chemistry, often sharing the same labels, leading to certain confusion among the users. But, with the most reputable brands producing excellent silver-oxide models, end-users should not have issues in getting the new 394 battery replacements.
