LiFeP04 BATTERIES SUSTAINABILITY
Lithium batteries are more efficient in taking and holding a charge compared to lead acid and are 60% lighter thus less weight has to be moved around.
There are no gases emitted during the charging of lithium batteries unlike lead acid i.e. hydrogen.
HDK electric vehicles fitted with lithium batteries can travel further on a full charge than when fitted with lead acid
As lithium batteries can last about x3 times longer than lead acid less waste is produced.
Lithium Iron Phosphate Vs Lead Acid Batteries
|Guarantee||3 Times Longer 6 Years||2 Years|
|Weight||50% Lighter||Heavy weight|
|Charging Times||Can charge up to 4 Times Faster||Slow charging|
|Environmental Benefits Less Hazardous Waste||Li-ion Battery Life is at least 3 Times Longer than Lead Batteries, therefore creating less waste and saving on installation costs||You will use at least 3 times more Lead Batteries|
|Efficiency||Li-ion will deliver 95% capacity, Lead will only deliver up to 85%||Less efficiency|
|Maintenance||Li-ion Batteries are Maintenance Free||Not Maintenance Free|
|Run Time||Li-ion Gives Up to 40% more run Time Compared to equivalent capacity Lead Batteries||Less Run Time|
|Safety||No Hazardous Hydrogen Gas Generated during Charging||Hazardous Hydrogen Gas Generated during Charging|
|Space Saving||Up to 40% less space for Same Capacity||Taking More space|
|Cost Benefit over time||50 % Cheaper in Many Applications over the Battery Lifetime||More Expensive over the Battery Lifetime|
