It’s a recognised industry standard that Lithium-Ion batteries, while their storage temperature ranges from –40°C to 50°C (–40°F to 122°F), and their operating temperature from +10°C to +55°C (50°F to 131°F), charging should take place only at a battery temperature of +5°C to +45°C (+41°F to +113°F). Teviot Technology Inc. is working on a series of ultra-smart LiFeSo4 ( LFP ) battery pack technologies to extend these limitations. For all your lithium battery customisation requirements, please talk to us.
For Lead-Acid batteries, the allowable storage temperature ranges from –40°C to 50°C (–40°F to 122°F), while their charging and operating temperature ranges are from –20°C to 50°C (68°F to 122°F).
To prevent extremely corrosive acid mixture leakage, Lead-Acid batteries, unless of the sealed type, can only be installed in an upright -orientation. However, as Lithium-Ion battery cells are always sealed, orientation is not an issue.
There are a number of chemistries used in Li-Ion batteries. Teviot Technology Inc uses Lithium Iron Phosphate, LiFeSO4 (LFP) cells, known to be the safest and most stable type available. LFP does not exhibit the energetic thermal runaway that metal oxide Lithium-Ion cells experience, which has occasionally led to battery fires.
While Lead-Acid batteries present low fire risks, they are capable of storing large amounts of energy and often utilise a volatile or combustible electrolyte and thus are still somewhat prone to fires and explosions. In addition, at any time dealing with Lead-Acid maintenance, full protection gear has to be used by the technician.
Teviot’s choice of Lithium-Ion battery cell chemistry, LiFeSO4, has become known as one of the most robust and long-lasting battery chemistries available. These batteries last ten years or more, if correctly maintained, with cycle durability ranging from 2,000 to12000 cycles.
