The number of cycles of lithium batteries for energy storage is inextricably linked to the service life of the battery and so on. Each completed a cycle number of battery capacity will be reduced a little, relative to the service life of lithium batteries will also be reduced. So how long is the cycle life of lithium storage battery? Now lithium batteries to replace lead-acid batteries, a big reason is because the cycle life of lithium batteries is longer than lead-acid batteries, and do not need maintenance.
Cycle life refers to how many times the battery can withstand charging and discharging before the battery capacity decreases to a specified value under a certain charging and discharging system. The cycle life of lithium batteries represents the number of times a battery can be cycled for charging and discharging before its capacity drops to a certain level. According to the data, lithium batteries for energy storage generally realize a cycle life of more than 5000 times.
Although the purchase price of lithium iron phosphate batteries is two to three times that of lead-acid batteries, the economic benefits are still much higher in the long run. In other words, if the lithium iron phosphate battery cycle life is long enough, even if the initial purchase price is a little higher, but the overall is still cost-effective. In fact, the quality of lithium storage battery mainly depends on its material, in general, the quality of the storage battery life is very long, can effectively reduce the cost of repair and maintenance, but also can reduce the overall investment in the system.
