Solar & Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries
Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries: Are Lithium Batteries Really The Best Deep Cycle Battery for You?
Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries what do you need to know ? “Lithium Ion” batteries refers to a type or “family of batteries”. When talking Lithium Batteries there are many different “Lithium Ion” batteries within this battery type and they all use different internal materials for their cathode and anode construction. So Lithium Batteries all exhibit very different characteristics. Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries are the newest battery technology being offered up for power; apparently -"superior power" when Camping, 4WDing, Caravanning or in Solar and Marine applications. Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries are said to be able to offer the possibility of six times the battery life at less than a third of the weight of lead-acid batteries. However, the technology is still new and when it comes to long term testing in the Australian setting the results on any superiority are unclear. Also there are still some clear dangers being reported about lithium batteries and fires. Yes, Lithium Batteries are lightweight. However, we are yet to see full testing on how Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries can withstand extreme levels of vibrations and the shocks that come with camping in Australia.
- Stability is a key question when it comes to deciding if Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries are best for you. Often lithium battery failure can include punctures, overheating, overcharging, short-circuiting, internal cell failures and manufacturing deficiencies, making them significantly less safe than AGM Batteries.
Aussie Batteries experts believe that presently Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries are just an expensive alternative technology. Especially when compared to the trusted and tested longevity and performance of AGM (absorbed glass mat) Batteries - that are tested in Australian conditions. So yes when it comes to AGM VS LITHIUM customers will get more amp-hour (AH) ratings at a better price using AGM Deep Cycle Batteries.
When Aussie Batteries customers ask what the difference between Lithium Deep Cycle Batteries vs AGM Deep Cycle Batteries is?
We most often answer "at present lithium batteries for their cost won't give returns like an AGM Deep Cycle Battery in terms of the price vs power output." So, like all new technologies, we would rather wait until the customer is getting what they pay for in terms of power that is cost-effective and proven - if that makes sense?
- So why would you pay an extra 400% + to use lithium batteries for the same power output as AGM Batteries?
- Is it just to get in front of new technology?
- If so .....goodluck!!
- Aussie Batteries experts firmly believe that an AGM Deep Cycle Battery at say $299 will give customers in present times a much better return on investment, so you get more power for a better price with AGM Batteries!
