TECHNICAL BULLETIN
Subject: Electrolyte Content of SunXtender® Batteries
January 25, 2013
Number PVX-1
All SunXtender® batteries offered by Concorde Battery Corporation are classified as Valve Regulated
Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries. According to Section 608 of the International Fire Code (2006), spill
containment is not required for VRLA batteries regardless of the size. However, for VRLA battery
systems having an electrolyte capacity of more than 50 gallons, an approved method and material for
neutralization of electrolyte spills must be provided. The method and material must be capable of
neutralizing a spill of 3 percent of the electrolyte capacity of the largest VRLA cell or block in the room
to a pH between 7.0 and 9.0.
The table shown on the second page of this Technical Bulletin provides the electrolyte content
(gallons of electrolyte) of all SunXtender® battery models offered by Concorde Battery. These
numbers may be used to calculate the total electrolyte volume for a given battery installation using
the following formula:
Total Electrolyte Volume = Electrolyte Volume per Battery X No. Batteries
Neutralization materials are available from various sources; see the following links for examples:

Note that there may be different state and local requirements depending on the exact location of the
battery installation. It is the responsibility of the battery system provider to ensure that the battery
installation complies with all applicable codes and regulations.
