Why use lithium batteries to replace lead-acid batteries

Source: TOPAK POWER Pageview: 56 Release Date: 2023-10-16

In the past, most of our electric tool equipment used lead-acid batteries, but with the development of technology and the updating and iteration of technology, lithium batteries have gradually become the equipment for current electric tool equipment. Even many devices that previously used lead-acid batteries have begun to use lithium batteries instead of lead-acid batteries. Why replace lead-acid batteries with lithium batteries?

This is because current lithium batteries have more obvious advantages compared to traditional lead-acid batteries:

1. Under the same battery capacity specifications, lithium batteries have a smaller volume, approximately 40% smaller than lead-acid batteries. This can reduce the size of the tool, increase the load-bearing capacity of the machine, or increase the amount of battery to increase the storage capacity. Currently, for lithium-ion lead-acid batteries of the same capacity and size, the temporary volume of the cells in the battery box is only about 60%, which means there is still about 40% empty;

2. Under the same storage conditions, the storage life of lithium batteries is longer, about 3-8 times that of lead-acid batteries. Generally, the storage time of new lead-acid batteries is about March, while lithium batteries can be stored for 1-2 years. The storage time of traditional lead-acid batteries is much longer than that of current lithium batteries;

3. Under the same battery capacity specifications, lithium batteries are lighter, about 40% lighter than lead-acid batteries. In this way, electric tools are more lightweight, the self weight of mechanical equipment is reduced, and its power is increased;

4. Under the same battery usage environment, the number of charging and discharging cycles of lithium batteries is about 10 times that of lead-acid batteries. Generally speaking, the cycle times of traditional lead-acid batteries are around 500 to 1000, while the cycle times of lithium batteries can reach around 6000, which means that one lithium battery is equivalent to 10 lead-acid batteries.

Although lithium-ion batteries are slightly more expensive compared to lead-acid batteries in terms of price, there are advantages and reasons why more people will use lithium-ion batteries compared to their advantages. So, if you understand the advantages of lithium batteries over traditional lead-acid batteries, would you use lithium batteries to replace old lead-acid batteries?
