Technically all batteries are accumulators, but not all accumulators are batteries. Being an essential component in solar panel technology, and with such a range of accumulator batteries available, it is important to do one's research. An accumulator battery, or energy accumulator as it is otherwise known, is able to store electrical energy and can be charged/discharged many times. Of course, it is important to highlight that not all batteries are the same and it is highly advisable to compare the characteristics of different types. All accumulator batteries have labels informing customers of their voltage and power storage capabilities, in addition to information about gel, valve-regulated lead acid batteries (VRLA) or absorbed glass mat technology (AGM).
