Jason Zerbe at Enersys explains what thin plate pure lead.
The benefits include:
- Thinner the plate, the more energy you can get out of the battery and the faster you can recharge it.
- Pure lead has corrosion resistance and has a longer life as a result.
- 30% higher energy density for the size.
- Longer run times
- Ideal for fast charge
Market for these batteries include
- Light industrial vehicles
- Electric Carts
- Floor Scrubbers

Thin plate has been used for the military and aerospace. The thinner you can make the battery plate, the more energy you can get out of the battery and the faster you can recharge it. Being thin plate, the battery is corrosion resistant. Good for AGV, electric carts, and floor scrubbers.
