Can the charger for lithium battery and lead acid battery be universal

- Sep 17, 2019-

No. If the voltage is consistent, the lithium battery can be charged with a lead-acid battery, and the lead-acid battery cannot be charged with lithium, because lithium battery safety requirements are higher.


A lithium battery is a primary battery using a lithium metal or a lithium alloy as a negative electrode material, and a nonaqueous electrolyte solution is used, and a rechargeable lithium ion battery is different from a lithium ion polymer battery. The inventor of the lithium battery is Edison. Due to the very active chemical properties of lithium metal, the processing, storage and use of lithium metal are very demanding on the environment. Therefore, lithium batteries have not been used for a long time. With the development of microelectronics technology at the end of the twentieth century, the number of miniaturized devices has increased, and high requirements have been placed on power supplies. Lithium batteries have entered a large-scale practical stage.


A lead-acid battery (VRLA) is a battery whose electrode is mainly made of lead and its oxide, and the electrolyte is a sulfuric acid solution. When the lead-acid battery is discharged, the main component of the positive electrode is lead dioxide, and the main component of the negative electrode is lead. In the state of charge, the main components of the positive and negative electrodes are lead sulfate.


A single-lead lead-acid battery has a nominal voltage of 2.0V, can be discharged to 1.5V, and can be charged to 2.4V. In applications, 6 single-cell lead-acid batteries are often used in series to form a 12V lead-acid battery. There are also 24V, 36V, 48V and so on.
