Why businesses turn to lithium ion batteries

Businesses are using lithium ion batteries nowadays almost everywhere. Not only do we see them in commercial uses, but they’re really beginning to rule the proverbial roost in industrial settings. What makes them so appealing?

Well for one, everyone’s always cost conscious and while lithium ion batteries can be a little pricier up front – they end up saving businesses in the long run. Add that in with the fact that they’re just simply a more renewable source of energy and it makes it a no brainer. 

Today, we’re going to talk about the characteristics that really make these batteries stand out though, and why if you’re not – you should consider them for use in your business. Let’s jump right in. 

Low maintenance

Compared to nickel-based counterparts, Lithium-ion based batteries require about a tenth of the overall maintenance. You don’t need priming equipment and you don’t have to ever worry about scheduled cycling. They also have zero memory effect – which is a phenomenon that causes certain batteries to perform at lower capacities after a few discharges. Overall, they’re mostly worry-free which is what business leaders want. 

Performance and longevity

Lithium-on chemistry has always been great for smaller applications but in recent years, it’s become the king of powering high-powered applications as well. They can run more current (up to 3 times as much as nickel) and discharge at less than 2% on average per month – meaning they last almost 45% longer. Especially if you’re an owner who is concerned with efficiency – they’re a no brainer. 


As we mentioned above, lithium-ion batteries can be used to power almost anything now. We’re even starting to see them used in home generators. They can store energy for portable electronic devices, useful in electric cars, heavy commercial use and even in ultra-demanding industrial settings where their dependability is essential to a business running well. If you have an application – a lithium ion battery can be used.
