Lithium ion UPS batteries can be a significant game changer for businesses when managing their server rooms. While traditional batteries can provide a number of advantages in and of themselves – Lithium ion UPS batteries can really help take things to the next level.
Today, we’re going to talk about just that: how they can make a significant difference for your business. Let’s jump right in.
Longer lasting, less maintenance
The facts here are simple: Lithium-Ion batteries last twice as long as traditional server room power supplies. Whereas your more traditional UPS supplies last about 3 to 5 years, Lithium ion batteries can last as long as 10 (or more). In addition, they provide three times as many cycles – so in the event of the worst happening to your business, you can rest assured that your UPS supply will be there when you need it most.
Lower decline in performance
When it comes to UPS batteries – you need to be careful in how you manage the temperature of server rooms. For every 15 degrees of temperature increase, you UPS batteries can lose up to half their life expectancy, if you can believe it. With lithium-ion UPS batteries, they can survive in temperatures as high as 104 degrees without experiencing any kind of actual performance degradation.
Smaller, more flexible
In addition to adding more life and a higher standard of performance, lithium-ion UPS batteries also weigh significantly less and take up less space. In fact, they both weigh and are about 40% of the size of a more traditional UPS battery. This means a lot when it comes to designing a server room, especially in places where space is at a higher premium.
On average – a more traditional UPS battery takes about 10-12 hours to get to full capacity depending on the age, make and model of the battery. Lithium Ion Batteries only need about 4 hours – which is a significantly faster turnaround than their traditional counterparts. This significantly reduces the risks you might take on for not being protected from consecutive outages.
As you can see, there are significant advantages to investing in a lithium-ion UPS power supply over more traditional methods.
