Depending on the requirements and where you want to use your electric vehicle e.g., electric patrol car, shuttle bus, or motorcycle, you can choose between three different batteries: lead-acid, lead-gel, lithium-ion. Each technology has distinct benefits, but it’s important to choose the one that’s most appropriate for your use case. Below you will find the most important advantages of the three battery types.
Why A Lithium?
With this type of battery, it is possible to double the distance with the electric vehicle.
Compared to other batteries, these batteries have a significantly longer service life of approx. 2,000 cycles.
A 100% charge is possible in 1.5 hours and 80% in 1 hour. In addition, partial charges are also feasible, making these batteries ideal for special operations, 24/24 h.
Larger Loading Capacity:
As this battery is much lighter than comparable to other batteries, the vehicle has a higher payload, which is particularly noticeable in off-road use where there are no registration restrictions on weight.
Why A Lithium Lead-Acid Battery?
Of the various types of batteries, the lead-acid battery is the most economical. This battery is most commonly used in areas where the vehicle speed is not a major concern.
The lead-acid batteries can be used in numerous fields and for different purposes because they do not require excessive maintenance. For example, they are ideal for use on campsites, in holiday villages, and for general work.
Why should you choose a lead gel battery?
This may be necessary for certain areas when you need reassurance that no liquid will spill.
With this type of battery, it is not necessary to add water, but unlike the other batteries, it is more sensitive to the charging specifications.
Use In Closed Rooms:
These fully sealed batteries are typically chosen when the vehicle will be used (almost) exclusively indoors.
Main Areas Of Application:
When you need a maintenance-free and totally sealed battery: hospitals, airport buildings, museums, etc.
