Lithium or Lead Acid ?

Comparison

Lead acid: consequences for public health and the planet

Lead batteries, also known as acid or AGM, are the most commonly used. They are the cheapest batteries, but their technology is old, very inefficient and excessively polluting. They are destined to disappear because the lead industry poses very serious environmental and health problems.

  • Lead is a dangerous and toxic metal,
  • 85 % de la consommation mondiale de plomb provient de la production des batteries,
  • An abandoned used battery pollutes 1mĀ³ of soil for more than 100 years,
  • The flow of acid contained in the battery electrolyte causes pollution of the soil, groundwater, water….,
  • Used batteries causes lead and acid dust which spill in the air,
  • Lead, in the form of fumes, particles or dust, can be released at all stages of the recycling process
  • The absorption of lead in the body causes diseases, including lead poisoning,
  • Lead is responsible for the loss of 14 million years of life (a measure of the impact of pollution on the population) according to the WTO

Lead acid: An outdated technology

Lead Acid Batteries

Olenergies Batteries

Only 30 to 50% of the energy used is available !

A lead-acid battery discharges at only 30-50% of its overall capacity. Beyond that, there is a sulphation phenomenon

Replaces 2 lead acid batteries advantageously

Our batteries can be discharged almost completely without degrading; 100% useful capacity !

Very short service life: 300-500 cycles

On average, a lead acid battery is replaced every 2 years

Very long service life: 3000-5000 cycles

Our systems are designed for a minimum of 3,000 cycles or many years of use !

Unsecured

Multiple hazards such as potentially explosive gases and corrosive sulphuric acid

100% secured

The cell is intrinsically safe; no risk of fire or explosion

Lead is very heavy

The mass energy density of lead is the lowest of all existing battery technologies

Very light batteries

An Olenergies battery is about 60% lighter than a lead-acid battery for the same capacity !

Mandatory slow charging

Charging must be done slowly to avoid heating the internal chemical elements

Fast charging

It is not necessary to follow a load curve and the chemical elements do not heat up.

No partial load

Lead acid battery must be charged regularly at 100% to avoid shortening its life due to sulphation

Partial charging and discharging; no problem

The service life improves even slightly with partial charging instead of full charging.

High losses if the discharge is fast

Peukert’s Law: the more the lead battery is used, the less energy it will provide

No discharge losses

One of the great advantages of Olenergies batteries is that Peukert’s losses are almost non-existent.

No energy management

Lead batteries work without electronic boards

On-board intelligence

Right to error: our BMS is a “safeguard” that will intervene in the event of an anomaly

High losses during charging

Between 15 and 20% of the charging energy is lost during the charging process

Efficiency close to 100%

All the energy that charges our batteries is stored and not lost

Voltage drop with discharge

The voltage (V) of a lead acid battery decreases with discharge

Equal voltage throughout the discharge

Olenergies batteries provide the same voltage levels throughout the discharge

Eco-Destructive

Lead and acid are dangerous and toxic elements, including during recycling

Eco Friendly

No toxic or dangerous elements, for man or the planet. so no cobalt and never lead-acid

The best money value on the market

All the advantages provided by Olenergies batteries immediately make the initial cost profitable, which is more than offset by a fourfold longer service life, superior reliability, excellent efficiency and a minimum weight and volume reduced by half !

CASE STUDY

At the end of the number of cycles performed, Olenergies batteries still have a nominal capacity greater than 80% of the original capacity; they will continue to operate for a long time !
