When liquid electrolyte or acid stratifies, the heavier charged ions actually sink
to the bottom of the cell, leaving discharged acid at the top. This allows the top
of the plates to oxidize and corrode reducing performance and shortening life. The
bottoms of the plates also corrode due to the action of the higher strength acid.
This can happen in Stationary applications, such as the solar industry, because
the battery never moves.
Because our electrolyte is a thick-consistency gel, this acid stratification can never happen, so no, it is not necessary to equalize your GEL Batteries.
