Today join @Margot in a new video about lithium !
The success of lithium in batteries has three main benefits:
Firstly, the volume density, meaning the energy stored in lithium-based batteries is much higher.
This is especially important for solar applications where the goal is to capture and store the maximum amount of energy from the solar panels. 20% of captured energy is lost when stored in a lead acid battery.
In addition, these lithium batteries have a much longer life than lead. A lithium battery makes about 5 times more complete cycles than lead batteries. To be clearer, for the same number of cycle, a lead battery is replaced every 2 years while an Olenergies battery can be kept up to 10 years.
Finally, lithium is a much lighter metal than lead. Lithium batteries are therefore 3 times less heavy than lead batteries for the same energy. This is called the Mass Density
These three advantages - mass density, volume density and life span - have largely contributed to the rapid deployment of lithium
That’s why buying an Olenergies battery is buying a number of benefits that immediately pay back the initial cost, in other words: the best quality/price ratio on the market.
