Advantages Of Lithium Deep Cycle Battery

When it comes to deep-cycle batteries, lithium deep-cycle batteries might just be the future. They are faster at charging than conventional batteries, require minimal maintenance, and can be depleted more thoroughly without reducing their lifespan.

Their popularity has not increased as quickly as you might think because of the higher upfront cost. Since they survive so much longer than lead-acid batteries, their price may eventually become comparable to or even lower than lead-acid batteries. Additionally, they outperform their lead-acid predecessors in many other ways.

  • LESS WEIGHT

Comparable lead-acid batteries weigh up to 75% more than lithium-ion batteries. Because of the significant weight reduction, your car will be lighter and more efficient, giving you improved gas mileage and many other performance advantages. Additionally, it makes installation considerably simpler and makes moving the lithium deep cycle battery around much easier. 

  • MUCH MORE USEABLE ENERGY

Due to the fact that lithium can be totally discharged but lead/acid cannot, lithium deep cycle battery have TWICE the energy. When compared to a 100Ah Lead/Acid Deep Cycle Battery, the Lithium version of the battery will provide between 30 and 40% more useful energy. Despite the fact that each battery is rated for 100 amp hours, this is possible because Lead/Acid batteries can only be safely discharged to 50% to 80% of their rated capacity, or they will be damaged by over-discharge and have a significantly shorter lifespan. 

  • RECHARGING QUICKER AND MORE EFFICIENT

Your battery or battery bank must be recharged after being discharged. Using the same charging current, the lithium deep cycle battery can recharge up to 4 times faster than a lead/acid battery. This is because lithium is more effective at absorbing energy and that a lithium battery does not need to go through the absorption phase to get 100% charge like a lead/acid battery does. This lithium battery efficiency also translates when utilising solar panels: charging a lithium battery will be significantly faster and more efficient than charging a lead-acid battery with the same solar panels and incoming charging energy. A lithium battery will absorb more of the charge from solar panels.

  • EXTENDED LIFE

The main advantage of lithium deep-cycle batteries is their longer life. Compared to Lead/Acid batteries, which have an average lifespan of 500–1000 cycles, Antigravity Batteries use the highest-quality Lithium Ion cells, rated for 400–5000 cycles. Please be aware that a cycle consists of a complete battery depletion and recharge. As a result, we may compare these “rated cycles” figures because, under ideal conditions, they represent the battery’s lifespan. Additionally, higher heats do not have the same impact on lithium as lead or acid, which can significantly reduce their lifespan. The lithium batteries also have the huge advantage of being equipped with a smart BMS, which keeps it in the safest, best functioning range and guards it against unintentional damage.

Conclusion

Compared to lead/acid batteries, lithium deep-cycle batteries have a substantially lower self-discharge rate. When a battery discharges by itself without being attached to anything, this is known as self-discharge. This may be a crucial consideration for some people who keep their cars in long-term storage. A lithium battery can keep a charge much longer than a lead-acid battery, even when disconnected, due to its significantly lower self-discharge rate.
