The Difference Between Lithium And Lead-acid Batteries


01 Main Ingredients

The main components of lead-acid battery are lead and acid, and a large amount of mixture of heavy metal lead and acid will be produced in the process of use, and improper storage will lead to environmental pollution. Lithium-ion batteries, which consist mainly of lithium and other light metals, are better for environmental reasons alone.

02 Energy density

Lithium batteries have an energy density of about 160WH/KG, while lead-acid batteries have an energy density of only 40WH/KG. If you fill the lead-acid battery compartment of an electric tricycle with lithium batteries, the range will be doubled while weighing only 2/3 of the lead acid battery.

03 Life Comparison

Lithium batteries are undisputed in terms of power and range.  As anyone who has ever used a lead-acid battery knows, after a year of use, the capacity of a lead-acid battery is reduced by about half, and power and battery life are greatly reduced.  The average life of a lithium-ion battery is about three years, which is much more durable.

04 Security Features

The higher the energy density of lithium batteries, the less stable they will be.

With the development of lithium industry, different brands of lithium technology and quality are uneven.  Some poor quality lithium batteries are prone to fire or even explode in high temperature environments.  Therefore, when choosing lithium battery products, we must choose regular manufacturers, because safety is fundamental.
