Emergency Lights, Cold Weather, Buy America Compliant (BAA), 12 Volt, 6 Volt, Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) Products (3 items)
Emergency Lights | Buy UL listed emergency lighting
An emergency light is a lighting device with a battery backup that switches on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. Emergency lights are standard in commercial and high occupancy residential buildings, such as college dormitories. Most building codes require emergency lighting be installed in older buildings as well.
Cold Weather emergency lights & exit signs
Batteries placed in cold environments can eventually fail or rupture. If your emergency lights or exit signs will be installed in temperatures below 20° F (-6° C), you may want to consider a cold weather option. Cold weather lights include a thermostatic battery heater which maintains the battery strength and lifespan in temperatures between -4° F (-20° C) and -40° F (-40° C) depending on the model you choose.
Assembled In America exit signs & emergency lights
Products displaying an 'Assembled in the USA' label will contain a percentage of imported components but will be physically assembled in America and are compliant with the Buy American Act (BAA). The FTC states that Assembled in America products must have undergone a significant transformation on American soil.
Rechargeable batteries are batteries that can be recharged and reused multiple times. They are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than disposable batteries. One of the most common types of rechargeable batteries is the 12 volt battery, which is often used in backup power supplies, LED lights, CCTV cameras, and other devices that require a steady and reliable power source.
12 volt rechargeable batteries come in different sizes, capacities, and chemistries. Some of the most popular chemistries are sealed lead acid (SLA), lithium ion (Li-ion), and lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4). Each chemistry has its own advantages and disadvantages, such as weight, lifespan, performance, and safety. For example, SLA batteries are heavy and have a short cycle life, but they are cheap and easy to maintain. Li-ion batteries are light and have a high energy density, but they are expensive and prone to overheating. LiFePO4 batteries are stable and have a long cycle life, but they are costly and have a lower voltage than other lithium batteries.
6 Volt Battery
6 volt rechargeable batteries are a type of battery that can be recharged and used multiple times. They are commonly used for devices that require a low voltage and a high current, such as game feeders, lanterns, emergency lights, and electric signs. 6 volt rechargeable batteries have several advantages over disposable batteries, such as saving money, reducing waste, and preventing short-circuiting.
There are different types of 6 volt rechargeable batteries, such as Sealed Lead Acid (SLA)
, lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4), nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and Nickel-Cadmium (NiCD)
. Each type has its own characteristics, such as capacity, cycle life, weight, and price. For example, SLA batteries are cheap and durable, but heavy and bulky. LiFePO4 batteries are lightweight and long-lasting, but expensive and sensitive to overcharging. NiMH batteries are eco-friendly and high-performance, but prone to self-discharge and memory effect. Depending on the application and preference, users can choose the best type of 6 volt rechargeable battery for their needs.
The nickel–cadmium battery is a type of rechargeable battery using nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. The abbreviation NiCd is derived from the chemical symbols of nickel and cadmium. NiCd batteries have a longer shelf life of around 10 years. The NiCd batteries sold on this site are High Temperature NiCds batteries with outstanding charge/discharge characteristics at both room temperature and high temperature up to 70°C (158°F).
Warning: Batteries, battery terminals, and related accessories can expose you to chemicals including Cadmium and Cadmium compounds, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov
