Considering Battery Safety

In order to power Sony's handheld video recorder, the company initially marketed lithium-ion batteries in 1991. The International Space Station, electric vehicles, smartphones, and everything else you see today are all powered by batteries, making improved battery...

Refining and Mining Effect For Battery

According to the study, mining and refining have some of the worst long-term effects on the environment for batteries. Many batteries depend on metals like cobalt and nickel to conduct power, but their removal from the ground creates waste that may leak dangerous...

What distinguishes lithium batteries from conventional lead-acid and gel mobility batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries typically have an energy density ten times higher than that of a lead acid battery. This indicates a higher potential energy density. Essentially, it means that for the same amount of power production, it will last longer and weigh less (around one third of a lead acid battery’s weight). The lithium-ion mobility battery is maintenance-free and rechargeable, just like the lead acid and gel mobility batteries. Lithium-ion batteries have only recently entered the market compared to lead acid and gel mobility batteries, but they are constantly evolving and getting better. There are still many myths regarding the uses and advantages of lithium-ion batteries, though, as they are still very new.

The belief that lithium batteries are exclusively suitable for supplying power to laptops and phones is a widely held one. This is false because lithium batteries are available for electric vehicles, solar power, backup UPS systems, portable electricity, golf carts, mobility scooters, military vehicles, boats, autos, and RVs. A comparable lithium-ion battery that is lighter and more robust is available on the market if a vehicle can be powered by a lead acid battery.

Unlike lead acid, AGM, or gel mobility batteries, lithium batteries drain uniformly over the course of their cycle. Your scooter or powerchair will not only have at least 40% more range, but it won’t slow down or struggle over hills either. Your scooter or powerchair’s speed won’t change because of the lithium-ion battery; it will merely be smoother and more constant.

Another misconception is that lithium batteries can catch fire. Again, this is untrue; using our lithium-ion batteries is entirely safe. Our lithium battery’s cells have been tried and true for the past 15 years. Additionally, the Battery Management Systems (PCB) were created after years of expertise. The production procedures incorporate a number of fire safety measures. For instance, the battery cell has safety features to avoid overheating and a device to stop power surges.

Considering recharging our lithium battery Do you require a unique Li-ion charger? Conveniently, the majority of mobility chargers are lithium-ion compatible. To ensure that your battery lasts as long as possible, we do advise using a lithium battery charger. Since the charging algorithm for lithium batteries is fairly similar to those for absorbent glass mat (AGM) and gel mobility batteries, most mobility chargers will only need to make a little adjustment to properly charge the lithium battery. Each lithium battery has an on-board battery management mechanism that makes sure your existing charger continues to function properly with your current battery. However, to make the most of the lithium battery, we once more advise that you utilize a lithium battery charger.

Another fallacy is the idea that lead acid or gel mobility batteries and lithium-ion batteries have similar life spans. The lifespan of a single lithium battery is ten times greater than that of a lead acid battery. How many times a battery can be discharged and recharged before needing to be replaced is how long it will last. Around 500 cycles at 80% DOD (depth of drain) are available from AGM mobility batteries, 800 cycles at 80% DOD are available from gel mobility batteries, and 5000 cycles at 80% DOD are available from lithium batteries. The lithium battery in a mobility scooter or powerchair would last more than 13 years if used and recharged once a day, as opposed to fewer than two years for an AGM or Gel mobility battery.

Lithium’s initial price is reasonable given its long-term value. Our lithium-ion batteries are all covered by a 5-year warranty.

This brings us to our next myth, according to which lithium-ion batteries are too expensive to be useful. Lithium-ion batteries do have a higher initial cost than AGM or Gel mobility batteries, but they also last 10 times longer. Multiply the cost of replacing your AGM or Gel mobility battery by 10 before comparing it to the cost of an identical Lithium-ion battery. Which is now more expensive?

Will a lithium-ion battery suit my power chair or scooter? Definitely, yes! Our lithium-ion battery has the same case size as an AGM or Gel mobility battery, making straight replacement installation simple.

The ideal environmentally friendly replacement for lead acid batteries is lithium. In addition to having a longer lifespan than lead acid batteries, which are routinely bought and discarded, lithium batteries also have recyclable parts.
