Higher Cell Voltage– Lithium Ion = 3.2 V vs. Lead Acid = 2.0 V – Fewer cells enhances reliability
Considerably Lighter in Weight– Saving transportation cost especially if a helicopter is required.
Much Smaller Footprint– Uses only a fraction of the space required by Lead Acid. – Reduces enclosure and site land cost.
Tolerates Higher Temperatures– Saves energy and equipment costs by eliminating air conditioning requirement.
Faster Recharge Time with Higher Charging Efficiency– Reduces solar array size and generator fuel consumption.
Twice the Discharge Cycle Life– Reducing Operating Costs.
Deeper Discharge Tolerance in Cycling– 70% of the amp hour rating for Lithium Ion vs. 20% for Lead Acid.
State of Health and State of Charge is Monitored– For improved reliability.
Longer Service Life– Li-Ion 6-8 years vs. Lead Acid 2-4 years.
