LEAD-ACID SOLAR BATTERY V/S LITHIUM-ION SOLAR BATTERY

LIFE-CYCLE

A single charge cycle is when a battery is charged back fully after discharge due to usage in home appliances and such. A battery’s life-cycle depends on the number of charge cycles they can survive before they die. It is just like mileage measured for cars where mileage holds more importance than the manufacturing year of the vehicle. Hence it gives a clearer picture of the car’s longevity.

Lead-acid batteries have a small number of charge cycles as compared to LiFePo4 ones. Thus they die easily, whereas Li-ion batteries run much longer efficiently.

DEPTH OF DISCHARGE

Lead-acid batteries usually come with a disclaimer that their depth of discharge should not exceed 50%, else their lifespan might get affected adversely. Li-ion batteries are far from such issues and can handle a depth of discharge even as high as 80% without any performance or longevity problems. They also charge relatively faster than the lead-acid batteries, thus requiring minimum solar panels and a small backup generator for this purpose.

The depth of discharge is a measure of the amount of the battery’s total capacity used before recharging. If a fourth of the battery’s capacity gets used for some work, then the depth of discharge shall be 25%.

CHARGE RATE

Lead-acid batteries, on the other hand, are incapable of handling higher charging current due to overheating problems. The charge rate also decreases as one reaches closer to full capacity.

The charge rate is the rate at which the battery gets charged or discharged based on its capacity. Li-ion batteries enjoy a higher charge rate and thus charge very quickly. They are capable of handling higher power from the charger.

EFFICIENCY

The efficiency of Li-ion batteries is much better than lead-acid ones. If around 100 watts of solar energy gets stored in a lead-acid battery, then only approximately 80-85 watts of power is available for use. Thus they are only up to 85% efficient. In a Li-ion battery, the same 100watts of power gets utilized up to over 95 watts, signaling efficiency of 95% or higher.

ENERGY DENSITY



The energy density of Li-ion batteries is a lot higher than lead-acid ones. It implies more storage in less space.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

A lot of raw materials implies a larger carbon footprint. The whole process from the time of manufacturing to the usage of lead-acid batteries is capable of releasing a high amount of toxic waste into the environment, contributing to environmental damage. Li-ion batteries are free of such negative impacts. The raw materials required for the manufacturing of each Lithium battery are very less, thus reducing adverse environmental impact.

Industries manufacturing lead-acid batteries are highly energy-intensive. The quantity of raw materials needed by these batteries to store solar energy is significantly higher as compared to their Li-ion counterparts.

The Perfect Choice for Solar Street Lights


Solar Street Lights (SSL), like the name suggests, are lights that use solar energy to illuminate outdoor areas like streets, parks, roads, and highways, etc. The SSLs do not depend on power grids for their daily requirements and are stand-alone models that run exclusively with the power of sunlight. Hence, they must be in an area with abundant sunlight and one that is free from shadows.


Previously SMF (Sealed Maintenance Free) batteries or lead-acid batteries were widely used for SSL projects. But, with the myriad advantages and popularity of Lithium-ion batteries, these quickly replaced the earlier batteries. Li-ion batteries store power for a longer duration and discharges very slowly, ensuring a greater lifespan. They come in all shapes and sizes as per your requirement, along with being an eco-friendly product. ARB’s premium Lithium-ion batteries have fuss-free maintenance, are long-lasting, and of high-quality. They are, thus, a natural and top choice by clients for Solar Street Light projects.
