Ensure All Your Tools and Devices Have the Power They Need With a New Rechargeable 12V Lithium-Ion Battery

Lithium-ion batteries are a huge step forward in both storage capacity and utilisation capacity as lithium batteries can sometimes use up to 100% of the actual power stored. Excellent storage stability, large power storage capacity and the ability to recharge make 12V lithium-ion batteries a safe, economical choice. You can find a wide range of these rechargeable batteries on eBay at affordable prices.

What does the AH measurement represent on lithium-ion batteries?

All batteries utilise the power they store at a different rate and a different efficiency and that utilisation is measured by amps-per-hour or AH. This is an important statistic to consider because the higher that rating, the more electrical output the device can generate, based on the energy needs of the device you are powering. So a battery that is 100ah rated can produce 100 amps in 1 hour before becoming completely discharged or 200 amps in a half hour. Assuming your device does not require that much energy, you can figure out how long the battery will last based on the energy needs of your device (that is, if it requires less amperage, the battery's charge will last longer).

What is the benefit of rechargeable lithium batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries represent several steps forward across multiple parameters in battery technology, namely storage capacity, efficiency and stability. Most notably, the benefits of lithium batteries are:

  • Stability - Lithium batteries are very stable. They can also be stored for long periods without discharging.
  • Efficiency - As batteries discharge energy to devices, they also lose some energy to leeching in the process. Lithium batteries do not lose much charge to leeching, if any, when powering devices. This means you will typically be able to utilise 100% of the stored power within a lithium battery.
  • Storage capacity - Lithium batteries are capable of storing energy equivalent to roughly 100ah. Therefore, depending on the type of device you are powering, these batteries can provide power for hours.

What is the expected lifespan of a new lithium-ion battery?

There are many factors which go into the life expectancy of batteries but lithium-ion batteries are typically good for roughly 500 charge/discharges. Storing them in hot or cold temperatures, leaving them plugged in when they've hit maximum charge or allowing them to sit while depleted of charge for long periods are all things that will negatively impact your battery's lifespan.
