Powering Energy Storage: Does Your Next Product Need Lithium Batteries?

2,027 Published by BSLBATT Apr 30,2021

Solar power is already a major force in Global. energy generation, and with the advent of even more available options for lithium-ion batteries, the two are quickly becoming the must-have combination for all your energy needs.

But this powerful partnership is more than just a passing trend or fad – it’s the future of off-the-grid energy.

What makes the combined strength of solar panels and lithium power so future-oriented? How Lithium-ion Powers Energy Storage

1) Lithium Is Long-Lasting

Most lithium-ion batteries last five years or longer. For context, the average lead acid battery only makes it to two years due to chemical degradation. Lead acid batteries also need to be maintained, requiring water replacement to avoid structural damage; if they aren’t maintained properly, their life span is shortened even further. Because lithium batteries require no active maintenance, a one-time purchase guarantees longevity (assuming you’re using a properly fitted battery and following usage guidelines).

2) Customization Lithium Battery

Your invention is unique. Don’t compromise your design by building around a battery. Lithium batteries are customizable, helping to maintain your product’s integrity.

3) Cost Savings Over Time

Traditional lead acid batteries aren’t as expensive as lithium-ion solutions. But once you factor in the cost of frequent replacement, lead acid batteries are easily the most expensive batteries on the market. This doesn’t even take into account the investments of time and effort or any installer costs, which may be even higher with frequent replacement.

Lithium batteries, on the other hand, save you time and money throughout their life span. While initially more expensive, their return on investment in energy savings, ease of use, length of life cycle and streamlined replacement all translate into higher cost savings in the long run. Once you combine these savings with free solar power, the best investment choice is clear.

4) Low-Resistance Charging

Lithium-ion batteries are a perfect match for solar energy. This is because lithium batteries require low-resistance charging, which is precisely the power that solar panels provide. As a result, very little energy is wasted in the charging process.

In addition, lithium batteries charge faster in general, making solar panel arrays a better choice for charging since their use is limited to daylight hours.

5) Virtually Maintenance Free

Unlike other battery solutions, lithium-ion batteries don’t require you to check or increase water levels every three months. Also, lithium batteries are much more portable than lead acid batteries, making them easier to move or change when needed.

Furthermore, lithium power is clean, reducing your maintenance worries. Unlike lead acid batteries, which may create harmful gases when stored in poorly ventilated areas, there’s no need to worry about gaseous toxic buildup from lithium power solutions.

The power generated from your solar arrays is just as clean as lithium power and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, unlike traditional power sources that may have a larger carbon footprint.

6) Lithium Is Efficient

Lithium’s efficiency is unparalleled, especially under high-stress situations. Unlike lead acid, lithium’s power delivery is barely affected by temperature fluctuations and energy depletion. If you plan on exhausting your battery or setting up your application in extreme weather, lithium is the only logical choice.

7) Lithium Is Light

Certain applications require careful consideration be made regarding battery weight and balance. Compared to lead acid, lithium provides the same or greater power at less than half the weight and size, giving you a more flexible approach to installation (and also making installation considerably easier).

8) Lithium Is Safe And Green

Finally, don’t overlook lithium’s environmental and personal safety record. Because lithium batteries are made from light metals, recycling and redistribution is easy and cost-effective, reducing the financial and operational burdens associated with recycling lead acid. Lithium batteries also contain no toxic chemicals that cause structural decay, further improving their environmental profile. BSLBATT lithium batteries have built in safety features that reduces fire and explosion risk.

The combination of solar power with lithium batteries is the best energy solution for today and for tomorrow. From low-resistance charging to greater time and cost savings, the solar/lithium partnership puts your energy worries to rest.

As with any major purchase decision, research your options diligently and make the most informed decision possible. However, chances are if you’ve invested a considerable amount of time and money into a new application, it’s worth investing in a lithium power solution, too. If you’re not sure how to assess your battery needs and discover the optimal approach, consider working with an experienced provider to get a detailed analysis and recommendation.
