Running short of 'power' is no more an option!
Lithium batteries are the present and future of energy storage functions and uses. Though quite costly as a product, it guarantees a longer lifespan and hence is a smart investment option from a long term perspective. It also has the capability to deep cycle while still maintaining power. Some of the benefits of Lithium batteries over lead-acid batteries areas listed below:
● Light-weight ● Long shelf life ● Safe to use ● High usable capacity ● Quick charging ● Maintenance-free
● Constant, reliable power output ● Non-hazardous ● Eco friendly ● Temperature tolerant ● PSOC tolerant ● Drop-in replacement possible
The Lithium-ion batteries manufactured by ARB have high energy density as compared to its lead-acid or nickel-metal hydride counterpart. That makes it possible to create Lithium-ion batteries that are small in size but have the same storage capacity as the lead-acid and nickel hydride ones. Thus, we achieve a compact design with power-packed storage.
The average lifespan of a lead-acid battery is around two years, whereas most Lithium batteries last for five years or more. With this large shelf life, they have a depth of discharge of 80% too. The maintenance requirement for the Lithium batteries is also significantly low as compared to lead-acid batteries that require water replacement to prevent structural damage. Without proper maintenance, lead-acid batteries may not even last their usual life span. So, with just a one-time investment, Lithium-ion batteries last longer.
Lithium batteries manufactured by ARB is less than half the weight of a lead-acid one, but the power produced by it is the same or greater than the lead-acid or other batteries having the same chemistry. It gives more flexibility and makes the installation of these batteries easier.
The charge rate for Lithium batteries is very high, which means they charge quickly but discharge slowly. It is the ideal scenario for batteries as fast charging saves time; slow discharge saves power. On the contrary, lead-acid batteries must charge for a longer duration; they also discharge faster than Lithium ones. That shows Lithium-ion batteries are much more versatile and might be the perfect choice in a wide variety of applications, even in peak power demand situations. Lead-acid batteries are also affected by energy depletion and temperature fluctuations. But, these issues hardly affect Lithium-ion batteries, thus signifying their high efficiency.
Which lithium battery should you use?
Li-ion batteries by ARB are typically light-weight, weighing around one third less than traditional battery types like AGM, flooded, or GEL lead-acid ones. They also provide 50% more energy.
Lead-acid batteries lose power relatively easily, whereas Li-ion ones manufactured by ARB are capable of showing efficiency even as high as 99% with minimum loss of energy.
Li-ion batteries can be used up to 100% of their capacity without any issues as compared to lead-acid ones that have a high rate of discharge. Lead-acid battery types also come with a disclaimer to prevent their discharge below 50% of their rated capacity for longer shelf life.
ARB’s rechargeable Li-ion batteries can run for as high as 5000 cycles, even with high rates of discharge. Lead-acid batteries usually run only for 300-500 cycles with a high rate of discharge, leading to a drastic reduction in lifespan.
You must think of buying Li-ion batteries if you have an intention for long-term investment in your energy needs due to its high cost. But, it is a recommended expenditure for a cleaner, long-lasting, and performance-driven energy source. Lead-acid batteries come with high maintenance costs and a shorter life span, thus reducing its other merits.
Below listed are the most viable use-case scenarios for rechargeable lithium batteries– from helping you carry out your mundane activities to facilitating critical support during any emergency.
Rechargeable Li-ion batteries are a great product to be used as a power bank or charger for mobiles and laptops. They are light-weight, charge quickly, are tolerant of temperature fluctuations and movement, compact in size, and are a stable power source.
Many people rely on mobility technology daily in their life. Whether it is a stairlift or an electric wheelchair, rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries are the best choice for such types of equipment. It offers customization support, a long life cycle, fast charging, and a slow self-discharge rate in comparison to lead-acid batteries.
Are you finding it challenging to monitor some locations, vehicles, or sites where a permanent alarm system is absent? We have a solution for you in the form of an alarm or surveillance system powered by our rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Their small size, long life, low selfdischarge rate (almost ten times lower than lead-acid batteries) even when it is not in use, are all ideal parameters for such systems.
Rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries are capable of running efficiently for as long as ten years. They have long-lasting power that is reliable and stable, even for long journeys. They do not lose power speedily and are also light-weight and compact. All these qualities ensure they can be used comfortably in a Recreational Vehicle (RV) or in an electric vehicle than using leadacid batteries with high maintenance and low shelf life.
The combination of electricity and water can be a recipe for a lot of problems, but not with ARB’s rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries. Unlike traditional lead-acid batteries that can cause a lot of issues when used for marine activities, rechargeable Li-ion batteries find usage in the marine motor without any maintenance and safety issues. They are long-lasting, light-weight, and dependable. You can rest assured that you can use your marine motor for many years without any battery problems.
Renewable energy sources like solar energy stare a potential rise in their usage for both commercial and residential purposes. Combine the might of the solar panels harnessing the Sun’s inexhaustible energy with the power of the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and you are all set for success! Li-ion batteries charge quickly and require low resistance charging provided by the solar panels. It is capable of storing solar energy and thus can be a savior in case of any issue with the solar panels. It provides you with continuous, uninterrupted power for a longer duration.
Emergency power backup or UPS supports critical operations in industries, companies, and in places like hospitals and residential buildings. An emergency power set-up backed by rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries ensures almost instant power for the connected equipment. This quick response is what differentiates it from a generator or any such emergency power backup system.
