What are the difference between Flat and Tubular battery?

Flat Plate batteries are having lower Initial Cost but short life span.( lower cyclic life). A flat plate battery will typically offer between 200 – 400 cycles at 80% Depth of discharge.

Tubular batteries use a special technology where the active material is encapsulated in tubes that prevent “shedding”. This prolongs the life of battery while undergoing long charges and discharges. Tubular Battery having long life span (Typically tubular batteries give more than 1000 cycles of life at 80% DOD which is 3 – 5 times that of a flat plate.) .It requires less frequency of topping up than flat plate batteries. Battery can be revived even if plates sulphate due to improper maintenance. In the negative side, Tubular Battery are having Initial higher cost and gives slightly lower backup time than flat plate battery of the same AH rating.
