III. Complete use of capacity
Kon-TEC lithium-ion batteries provide usage of 100% nominal capacity regardless of their discharge current. In contrast lead-acid batteries provide much less usable energy with higher loads. They are usually also limited to only 50% of their nominal capacity to prevent shortening of their lifetime.
IV. Very high lifetime
The service lifetime of Kon-TEC lithium-ion batteries is about 3,000 cycles (full charge and discharge) or more. It depends on the state of battery discharge. In comparison lead-acid battery at the same state of charge usually lasts only 200-300 cycles. The more discharged the battery, the shorter its lifetime.
V. Efficiency gains
Costs of lithium-ion batteries may seem high in advance. However, investment outlays purchased, give enormous long-term savings. Kon-TEC lithium-ion batteries provide much higher efficiency and lifetime than traditional lead-acid batteries. Eventually this means significantly lower operating costs and minimizing downtime.
