You certainly have high expectations from the batteries of the equipment you use. These must be a day-to-day performance for extended or multiple work shifts. By switching to lithium-ion, you get more material available, and you can use the battery longer than you used to, compared to the acid version.
However, you can also go for constant industrial battery testing to make sure that your battery is always in check. These are some points you should put into consideration, and they are;
- Low Energy consumption With a Longer Service Life
latest lithium-ion technology has 30% higher energy efficiency than acid batteries. Also, lithium-ion batteries have three times more charge cycles than those with acid, leading to a longer life.
- Accessibility of Battery Equipment
li-ion is also considerably increased as the battery charging time is reduced. Since the battery charge of 6-8 hours with acid battery is now sufficient 1-3 hours per day, depending on the ratio between battery and charger. This means that you save big on your electricity consumption.
- Higher Productivity Due to Short Loads
to the short charging time, lithium-ion equipment can be considerably more efficient during a business day. It also offers smooth performance, whether the battery is fully charged or at 20% capacity.
Lithium-ion equipment works at full size until the battery is fully discharged, and when this happens, the machine suddenly stops. This means that the operator will have to pay attention to the battery level display to ensure that the device is fully loaded on time. We recommend that you stop using the equipment when the battery reaches 20% and charge it.
The case of the acid battery, the smaller its remaining capacity, the less efficient it becomes, and the machine loses its performance.
- More Space When You Do Not Have a Loading Room
lithium-ion batteries are completely closed and do not emit any gas. This means that there are no requirements for individual ventilated cargo rooms, and charging can take place anywhere on the premises. Battery charging places to be made near coffee and lunch spaces to facilitate short-term load.
