Why choose a Lithium battery over any other battery?
Lithium battery meet all your power needs with less than 1/4 the weight and space
The lithium battery has 6 to 8 times longer life than lead acid.
1/2 to 2 hour recharge times (FOUR TIMES FASTER THAN LEAD ACID) .
Saves engine or generator running time and fuel.
3 Times more energy harvested (Replaces: 6.4V, 9.6V, 12.8V, 16V, 24V, 36V, 48V, etc. )
Continues to perform the same and accept fast charging even towards the end of its life, unlike lead-acid batteries in which the performance decreases dramatically in the last 1/3 of battery life.
Continues a consistent voltage output even while battery charge is low, unlike lead-acid batteries.
Higher reliability and less replacement associated costs and delays.
Lithium batteries are clearly a superior technology to any other type of battery both in performance and value. Because they can last 6-10 times more, Lithium is cheaper per charge cycle than lead acid batteries including AGM and it is estimated that you would require about 50% smaller battery bank for any off grid or marine application because lithium batteries can be discharged as low as 10% regularly without any damage to the batteries. Example if you have a 1000 AH battery bank of lead acid you can easily replace it with a 400-500 AH Lithium battery bank and actually result in having a higher capacity and better performance; The reason being that even the best lead acid batteries are damaged and their life span drastically reduced when discharged below 50% regularly and that means that whatever your daily consumption , it must be doubled or tripled to extend the life of the lead acid battery bank. Lithium batteries unlike lead acid batteries do not get damaged if undercharged.
