Advantages Of Li-Ion Batteries Over Lead Acid Batteries

- Jun 21, 2018-

  • Weight: Li-Ion batteries are one-third the weight of lead-acid batteries.

  • Efficiency: Li-Ion batteries are nearly 100% efficient in both charge and discharge.

  • Discharge: You can discharge 100% of a Li-Ion battery  versus less than 80% for lead acid.

  • Cycle Life: Rechargeable Li-Ion batteries cycle 5000 times or more compared to just 400-500 cycles in lead acid.

  • Voltage: Li-Ion batteries maintain their voltage throughout the entire discharge cycle. Lead-acid voltage drops throughout the discharge cycle.

  • Cost: Despite the higher upfront cost of Li-Ion batteries, due to the longer lifespan the true cost of ownership is significantly lower.
