Some Key Difference Between Dry and Wet Cell Battery

Options are everywhere for car parts. For tyres? Accelera alone has a variety of tyre options to meet your different needs. Starting from daily cars, racing, to off-road.

In addition to tyres, batteries often also offer choices for consumers. In general, there are 2 types of batteries, dry cell batteries and wet cell batteries.

What are the differences and which ones do you need to choose? Check out the discussion:

1. Maintenance

Dry cell batteries do not require special maintenance, just make sure it still has enough power. While wet cell batteries sometimes need simple maintenance such as checking the contents of the liquid, filling it, and making sure the power is enough. Wet cell batteries also often experience dangerous liquid spills and can cause rust.

2. Weight

Dry batteries have a relatively lighter weight compared to wet batteries although they are not significant, the difference is usually very little. However, this goes back to the size of the battery and the type of battery used.

3. Price

The price factor is probably the main determinant of battery selection. Because of the advantages given, the price of dry cell batteries tends to be more expensive than wet cell batteries. However, as technology is advancing, the price of dry batteries is now also increasingly competitive and the difference is very slim.

So which one to choose? Both are good. This goes back to your preferences and budget when choosing a battery.
