Lithium batteries for various EVs are the wave trend of the future
The lithium batteries can at least last up to 2000+ cycles? It’s no wonder that more people are replacing lead-acid batteries with lithium batteries. They also have quite a few advantages over lead acid such as charge efficiency and longer life span…etc. Their low maintenance and longer life make them a perfect investment for Ev’s battery power.
Approx. 30% weight compared to the lead-acid battery with a ‘drop in’ replacement.
Longer cycle lifespan
Offers up to 10 times longer cycle life and five times longer float/calendar life than a lead-acid battery, helping to minimize replacement cost and total cost of ownership.
Better Discharge Rate
Lithium batteries can be discharged down to nearly 98% charge or less, unlike lead acid which is around just 50%.
Better charge and discharge speed
Lithium batteries can be charged and discharged continuously at a high-rate current without damage. Lead acid batteries aren’t able to handle a high charge/discharge current. Those high currents reduce their life cycle and vent hydrogen gas in large amounts which will put the battery at high risk of fire.
Less Maintenance time/cost
Lithium batteries don’t have to be periodically checked like lead-acid batteries. They don’t have liquid electrolytes that need to be checked or terminals that corrode.
No Venting Needed
Lithium batteries don’t vent which means you can store them anywhere in your EV. If you’re installing a whole solar system this is very convenient because you have more options of where to store your EVs without a fire worry like lead acid.
Lead acid batteries vent toxic, acidic vapors when they’re discharged and charged. This means they have to be in a place where the steam can escape and go outside.
