Sonnenschein Dryfit Range

Dryfit technology was developed by Sonnenschein and to this day, no other comparable product on the world market has been able to match the performance of original dryfit batteries.

The batteries in the dryfit range are compact, versatile and can be used in a wide variety of applications. Dryfit technology consists of closed-system batteries in which the electrolyte is fixed in a gel. This means that no maintenance whatsoever is required throughout the entire service life of the battery. The special advantage of the Sonnenschein dryfit battery lies in the batteries’ suitability for extreme operating conditions and the highest demands on reliability.

The Sonnenschein Dryfit range is ideal for high cyclic and critical applications such as golf buggies, wheelchairs, railway crossings, hospitals and solar power.
