The Benefits of Lithium Batteries
At Hy-Brid Lifts, we continue to innovate to find new solutions to make our scissor lifts as maintenance-free as possible. This includes providing a better, maintenance-free battery option that helps increase your ROI. From slow charge time to yearly battery changes lead acid batteries are just not worth the hassle. Lithium provides a maintenance-free, better return on investment, and more efficient battery solution. Keep reading to find out more about why lithium batteries are the best battery option for your scissor lift.
With lead acid batteries, you have to maintain them to keep optimal performance. Over time, Lead acid batteries will lose water reducing performance and forcing a battery water check, these would have to be done 1-2 times a month. Along with water checks, these batteries only have about 300 charge cycles forcing you to replace the battery every 1-2 years.
Over the span of 10 years, you will have to replace 14 lead acid batteries and check the battery water over 120 times. While that sounds like a lot, the cost of doing so will be even more.
Lithium batteries are designed to be as maintenance-free as possible. There are no water checks or replacing your battery every 1-2 years. Lithium batteries will easily last you for over 10 years without any extra maintenance. Lithium performs well in cold and hot temperatures.
