Tubular battery vs Flat plate battery | difference between Tubular battery and Flat plate battery

This page compares Tubular battery vs Flat plate battery and mentions difference between Tubular battery and Flat plate battery.

Introduction:
Both are lead acid batteries with different design structures. They have their respective benefits and drawbacks. Let us discuss them individually before we derive difference between them.

Tubular battery

tubular battery

• The figure-1 depicts structure of tubular battery. As shown it uses series of tubes which are placed side by side length wise. Tubular battery grid has comb like structure.
• It uses thicker electrodes. Hence it produces small currents for long time period of usage.
• It is used for various applications which include power backup at home and small offices, solar equipments, electric propulsions etc.

Normal Flat plate battery

flat plate battery

• The figure-2 depicts structure of flat plate battery. Normal battery grid has multiple squares like structure which forms broad mouthed mesh.
• It uses thinner electrodes. Hence it can produce huge amount of currents in very short time period of usage.
