Lithium Ion batteries appear to be expensive when
compared to lead acid batteries, until you take a
Normally you wouldn't discharge a standard lead
acid battery below 50% of it capacity. With Victron
Lithium Ion batteries you can safely discharge to
80% DOD. This along with their ability to recharge
much quicker means you can normally reduce Ah
capacity by around half!
The cyclic life of most standard lead acid batteries
would be 300 - 600 cycles, the Victron Lithium Ion
battery could be nearer to 5000 cycles, making them
a cost effective solution in the long term.
