Lead-acid vs lithium, why LiFePO4?

Light on Weight; Heavy on Power

Lithium batteries typically weigh one-third less and provide up to 50% more energy than traditional flooded, AGM, or GEL lead-acid batteries, and they provide more power.

Highly Efficient

Lithium batteries offer super-low resistance (and 99% efficiency), allowing much faster charging, with minimal losses. Lead-acid batteries lose power quickly during discharge.

Higher Depth Of Discharge

Super B lithium batteries have a higher depth of discharge than lead-acid batteries: 100% vs 50%. This results in a higher usable capacity.

Long Life Time Lower Cost

Lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4) operate ten times longer than lead-acid, resulting in fewer costs per kilowatt-hour. For example, Super B lithium batteries can reach 5000 cycles or more. Lead-acid batteries deliver only up to 500 cycles, as higher levels of discharge reduce their cycle life.
