If you’re looking for the elb06042 lithonia battery 6v 4ah 20hr, then it’s likely that you have an emergency lighting system that you need to power. This battery has to be strong, as it needs to power all your lighting when the power goes out.
The elb06042 lithonia battery 6v 4ah 20hr is used for Lithonia’s emergency lighting systems and is designed to maintain the lasting light that you’ll need. The battery can be used to power:
- Remote lamps
- LED emergency units
- LED remote lamps
Along with other styles of emergency lighting equipment.
Which Batteries Do I Need?
The elb06042 lithonia battery 6v 4ah 20hr lasts for 20 hours, keeping everything up and running until the electric power is restored. It’s important that you always buy a new battery, as if you don’t, it may not hold its charge for as long as you’d like it to. We always provide new batteries in this style, so you know they will charge and last the full 20 hours.
Along with your emergency lighting system and the Lithonia battery, you need to consider the other batteries that you could need. For instance, AA and AAA batteries are the most common types, and they power everything from remote controls to your emergency radio. Your backup battery can power your lighting, but what’s powering the rest of your home or business?
You can also make sure your smoke detectors continue to work in a blackout by purchasing 9-volt batteries. Remember, when a power outage happens, you may have a surge through your home or business that overcharges and damages electronics and batteries plugged into appliances. Always have a backup on hand.
How To Prepare for a Blackout
Every year, you need to check on your stockpile of batteries and make sure they work properly. We offer a variety of new batteries for times when yours are no longer up to the challenge. It’s best to check your batteries at least twice per year by testing your emergency lighting system, appliances, and accessories.
In a business setting, you may be required to test your emergency systems at least once every 30 days. This falls under your building and fire codes, which are there to make sure your emergency systems work when you need them most. A full test takes only 90 minutes and can point out flaws in your system that you would otherwise not know existed.
Remember to check your emergency lighting paths, markings, and lighting systems. Check your exit signs, flood lighting, and other lighting around the area. If everything is working without a hitch, you’re safe for another 30 days. If not, you may want to look into purchasing new batteries for back up or taking the time to have your lighting system repaired.
If you’re in need of a new Power Sonic battery, we have what you need, whether it’s AA batteries or your emergency lighting system’s backup battery.
