Lithium-Ion Vs Lead Acid Batteries
There are several reasons a company would opt to convert to lithium-ion power from their lead acid energy source.
Increased Efficiencies: Thanks to technological advances, like BMS and opportunity charging, lithium-ion-powered equipment can help improve a facility’s efficiencies and reduce downtime due to needing to recharge battery-powered equipment.
Boosted Productivity: Operators can worry less about charging their equipment and focus more on the task at hand. Lithium-ion battery technology also empowers companies to invest in automation and robotic solutions to bypass the need for human labor.
Easier Charging & Storage Protocols: Lithium-ion batteries can be opportunity charged - and thrive on it! That means you can charge when it is convenient for you.
Lithium-ion batteries also don’t need their own charging/storage space since they don’t come with the same hazardous/environmental risks that lead acid batteries do.
No Required Maintenance: Unlike lead acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries do not require tedious watering and maintenance.
Improve Operational Safety: Lithium-ion batteries improve a facility’s operational safety in several ways.
1. They do not need to be removed as often since they can be opportunity charged.
2. Lithium-ion batteries are also environmentally safer because there is less risk of overheating, exploding, or discharging hazardous and toxic fumes or liquids.
