Lithium Ion Technologies® Lithium-ion batteries maintain their voltage throughout the entire discharge cycle. This allows for greater and longer-lasting efficiency of electrical components. Lead acid voltage drops consistently throughout the discharge cycle.
Lithium-ion batteries are one-third the weight of lead acid batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries are nearly 100% efficient in both charge and discharge, allowing for the same amp hours both in and out. Lead acid batteries’ inefficiency leads to a loss of 15 amps while charging and rapid discharging drops voltage quickly and reduces the batteries’ capacity.
Lithium-ion batteries are discharged 100% versus less than 80% for lead acid. Most lead acid batteries do not recommend more than 50% depth of discharge.
Lithium-ion batteries cycle 5000 times or more compared to just 400-500 cycles in lead acid. Cycle life is greatly affected by higher levels of discharge in lead acid, versus only slightly affected in lithium-ion batteries.
Despite the higher upfront cost of lithium-ion batteries, the true cost of ownership is far less than lead acid when considering life span, performance and energy saving.
Lithium-ion batteries are a much cleaner technology and are safer for the environment.
LiT Lithium batteries create less waste than lead acid alternatives because they last 10 times as long. As an added bonus, our batteries are easily recyclable.
