With the unparalleled quality of batteries, we’ve spread our wings in the Industrial battery. We strive proudly that our lithium batteries are Optimizely used in – forklifts, Lifts, Cranes, Robots, Electric street sweepers and so on.
Lead-acid batteries are the traditional choice for industrial machine and electric forklift. While lithium-ion batteries have been around for roughly 5 years. Fortunately, Li-ion batteries come with a lot of advantages over lead-acid batteries.
If you’re trying to learn more about the advantages of lithium-ion batteries, look no further. Below we’ll tell you why you should consider using lithium-ion batteries-
One of the biggest advantages of using lithium-ion batteries that they will allow for higher cycle life and longer runtimes. Compared to using traditional lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries will last up to 2-3 times longer.
There is no voltage drop through the whole discharge cycle with lithium-ion, so the performance of forklift or industrial machine will be similar at the end of the shift as if they just started. Lead-acid batteries experience a voltage drop and typically lose around 20% of their power during the shift.
A lithium-ion battery can be charged from ZERO to FULL in just under 2 hours. Lead-acid batteries can experience heavy degradation if they are being charged too often. However, lithium-ion batteries will stay in great shape regardless of how often they’re charged.
Lead-acid batteries require the installation of a battery room, where they will be stored and charged when not in use. While charging, these batteries will emit dangerous hydrogen / sulfuric gas fumes (gassing), so the room will need to be well-ventilated and kept cool which adds significantly to operating costs.
When using lithium-ion batteries, on the other hand, you’ll only need one battery per machine or Forklift. Since there is no gassing problem, and charging can be done almost anywhere, there is no need for an expensive ventilated and air-conditioned battery room.
lead-acid batteries are that they require quite a bit of maintenance. Watering will be required and acid spills will happen. Lead-acid batteries typically increase labour costs since it can take time and energy to keep them maintained.
On the other hand, lithium-ion batteries required zero maintenance.
