We have been in the battery business since 1968 - Forty Nine years. Please give us a call Toll Free 888-826-0939 if you have questions or need any assistance whatsoever.

You really can't make a better choice than these batteries, we use them here at Solar Biz New Mexico to power our offices and our house, they never miss a beat. We're not saying that these are the best batteries in the world, there are certainly equals, but there are none better.

You do have to tend to the care and feeding of these babies, as they are expensive and even unintentional lack of care could ruin them.

HuP Solar-One


The custom made long life battery system for renewable energy users.

Like many other technological breakthroughs, HuP (High Utilization Positive) was created in response to another need.  Patented in 1982, its original objective was to meet tough new environmental standards, and help eliminate lead dust from the battery manufacturing plant.  But it was discovered during initial testing that the HuP exhibited cycling capabilities well in excess of conventional batteries. 

These impressive findings led to HuP being selected for use as "load leveling" at the Southern California Edison Company's Chino power facility in 1987.  Since going on-line, the 10 megawatt HuP battery system has proven to be 100% reliable in meeting daily deep cycle requirements.  This continued enhanced performance led engineers at General Battery/Hertner to develop HUP for yet another application: motive power. 

In 1991, HUP proved its mettle under extreme conditions in Operation Desert Storm, where it was used in materials handling vehicles delivering 10.5 million tons of supplies and equipment.  Now you too can enjoy the benefits of the proven HUP Technology in your Renewable Energy System.



We have been getting a lot of telephone calls lately from our customers here at The Solar Biz about the or some similar name web site supposedly selling the HuP Solar One battery at what looks to be a real discounted price.

We can assure you it is not a REAL HuP Solar One on their site, it is not even made by the same company and, if you look at the specs on this imposter battery you will see that it is not even the same size, what's more it only has a five year pro-rated warranty... why? Because it is just a fork-lift battery. A fork-lift battery! It is not made for solar applications and it surely will not last you 20 years like the REAL HuP Solar One battery.

These guys are trying to pawn off a forklift battery to unsuspecting new battery buyers by using a confusingly similar name to the HuP Solar One because our battery is built like a rock and enjoys the best reputation in the industry.

I had a fellow call me in tears who bought one of these fake batteries in 48 volt and he wanted to put it in his basement but when it arrived it was a solid unit weighing over two tons! He initially had called me to complain that the battery on our web site had removable cells in our picture (see left) but the one he got didn't. I sadly assured him it was a fake and not the real HuP Solar One and it did not come from us.

Don't you get fooled too! You may not get what you pay for!

    Not necessarily. Free shipping means the battery will be shipped from the factory to the nearest business  with a forklift or loading dock (building supply, hardware store etc.), or your nearest truck terminal. In order to efficiently ship the HuP Solar-One the trucking company used by the factory needs to know what to expect on the receiving end. They will not ship residential and they make no exceptions!

Acid Spill Absorber & Neutralizer                                           


This amazing product is way beyond anything else on the market you could use. For years all we had to recommend to folks was to sprinkle baking soda on the floor underneath their battery installation. The result was marginal at best.

Now you can spread our acid spill absorber & neutralizer with confidence that any spill will be contained and neutralized. The formula changes color when acid is present and then changes color again when the acid is neutralized. No guessing that it worked... you see visual proof it has done its job. We sell the 8 pound bottle which should be enough for the life of your batteries.

We recommend spreading the formula on the floor under your protective floor mat and then on top of the mat as well. Then place you batteries directly on the formula. Or in the case of HuP Solar One batteries also sprinkle into the bottom of the cans as well. Any spillage will be quickly absorbed and neutralized.

  • Ultra Polymer Absorber is safe and non hazardous.

  • Sweeps up clean and dry not dusty like kitty litter.

  • Specifically formulated to neutralize Sulfuric Acid

  • Does NOT create asphyxiating Carbon Dioxide Gas

QuickCote+ Protective Compound                                           

QuickCote+ Protective compound for battery terminals and connections.  Special Formula seals terminals and connections against corrosion, moisture, dirt and oil.

Brush on application stays put, won't drip of evaporate. Use on all exposed electrical terminals and connections. Also prevents seizing of fasteners.

8 Ounce Can with Applicator Brush, will coat one HuP Solar One 12 volt battery, for 24 volt order two cans and for 48 volt three cans will do fine.

Floor Protective Battery Mat                                                      

Everybody who sets up a battery system always asks... What should I put under my batteries to protect my floor?

Here's the answer... Our acid absorbing battery mat! We sell it in a convenient 3 foot by 10 foot roll. A perfect size for most battery installations. Can be cut to size.

In anticipation of a battery spill we spread TSB-510130 Acid Spill Absorber and Neutralizer under the batteries (on top of the mat) to neutralize acid and then shop-vac to remove the neutralized spill and reuse mat again. Will last the life of many battery installations. Much cheaper than a truck bed mat, which doesn't absorb anything anyhow.

  • Mat absorbs Acid but won't leak through tough Polypropylene backing.

  • Electrically isolates batteries, preventing parasitic discharge.

  • Use over and over again.

  • Protects floors and equipment from acid corrosion.

Eyewash Station                                                                           

Setting up a renewable energy battery system? Don't forget this most important item! I recommend placing our Eyewash Station where you can easily find it blind, if you get acid in your eyes. Just grab the bottle of sterile eyewash and irrigate your eyes. You can't buy new eyes... This is the most important part of your battery system get one now, don't risk your precious eyes.
