With its leadership position in Deep Cycle Inverter batteries, Line Interactive, Online UPS, among others, hardware solutions provider, Tripplesea Limited, Sole Marketers Blue Gate Products, has setÂ up an automatedÂ product service center in Lagos to offer after salesÂ support services forÂ all models ofÂ Blue Gate range.
Speaking to newsmen last week in Lagos during the re-launch of its various products, the companyâ€™s General Manager, Osita Godson said that the service center is fully equipped with State-of-the-art equipment to deliver high quality service, adding that every Blue Gate product comes with a 12 months warranty. While assuring customers of affordable price, he said that Blue Gate products wereÂ tailored to the needs ofÂ the Nigerian IT and ElectronicsÂ market by focusing on home appliances and office equipment to protect the systems from destruction in event ofÂ power outage .
â€œWe are in partnership with major marketers of Inverters and solar panels by powering their inverters and solar panels with Blue Gate Deep Cycle Batteries to deliver a longer, purer and highly regulated steady power supply to equipment installations all over Nigeria, and even beyond our shores.
Blue Gate Deep Cycle Inverter Batteries, according to him, areÂ designed using the best technology in high-dept discharge battery manufacture.
â€œThey are extremely rugged and can withstand tougher operating environment than all others, including Gelled electrolyte batteries.â€™â€™ he said.
Explaining the ruggedness of the product, he said, â€œBlue Gate AGM deep cycle batteriesÂ have very thick plates. This is so designed because of a factor called “positive grid corrosion”. It ranks among the major reasons for battery failure. The positive (+) plate is what gets eaten away gradually over time, so eventually there is nothing left – it all falls to the bottom as sediment. Thicker plates are directly related to longer life, so other things being equal, the battery with the thickest plates will last the longest. And that is the Blue Gate Deep Cycle batteries
He further assured thatÂ the batteriesÂ â€œare recombinant. Hence oxygen and hydrogen recombine inside the battery using gas phase transfer of oxygen to the negative plates to recombine them back into water while charging.
â€œThis goes to prevent the loss of water through electrolysis; a process that is typically 99 per cent efficient
â€œThe self-discharge rate is as low as from one per cent to three per cent per month, enabling it sit in storage for much longer periods without charging than standard batteries.â€
