The Role of the Standby Battery
Standby batteries supply electrical power to critical systems in the event of a power outage. Hospitals, telecommunications systems, emergency lighting systems and many more rely on lead-acid standby batteries to keep us safe without skipping a beat when the lights go out.
Standby batteries are voltage stabilizers that smooth out fluctuations in electrical generation systems. These batteries temporarily hold large electrical loads as electric utilities switch from one generation system to another; as such they can be a lifesaving bridge.
