If you’re looking to get more out of your batteries, you need to go lithium. While they do come with a hefty price tag, LiFePO4 batteries beat the good old fashioned lead acid batteries in many ways, here's a few of them:
- Lithium batteries are around half the weight of lead-acid, making them a lot easier to move around if needed.
- With the correct charger, lithium batteries have the potential to fully charge within ONE HOUR!
- Lithium batteries also have up to 60% more usable capacity than lead acid batteries, this means that the battery will keep working past 10.6v all the way until it's nearly flat, unlike the lead acid battery which will more than likely stop powering the application it is on once it drops down to 10.6v.
- Lithium batteries are more compact with greater power density than the traditional lead acid battery.
Please note that lithium batteries must be used with the correct charger, contact us for details on finding the correct charger for your lithium battery.
Still unsure about lithium batteries? Take a look at the graph below
As shown by the graph above, the discharge curve of the Lead Acid battery is different to that of the Lithium one. Most 12v electrical items will stop functioning when the Lead Acid battery drops to 10.6v. The Lithium battery holds the voltage until it is nearly flat giving around 60% more useable power.
