Philadelphia Scientific’s GUN-X battery watering gun eliminates post shut-off drip, delivers a precise flow rate and provides an inexpensive, faster and safer alternative to manual battery watering. The non-electric automatic shutoff facilitates low-cost watering at an even faster fill rate (1.7 GPM) than previous models, resulting in a quick return on investment and less time required to get the job done. When compared to hand watering, the manufacturer says GUN-X reduces labor costs up to $150 a year for each 18-cell battery.
The GUN-X is ergonomically designed, with a rugged, easy-squeeze handle and a 45-degree-bend nozzle. The new design is more rugged than previous versions due to the elimination of weak points such as the external pressure regulator. It is also lightweight, compact and easy to operate, and it requires less bending over to fill the battery. An integrated flow indicator shows when filling has stopped and a flow diffuser converts the rapid flow to a gentle spray.
