For Professionals - by Bryan Veldboom - updated on 4/14/2023

Three X2Power Lithium SLA batteries

At Batteries Plus, we strive to provide businesses with the most efficient battery solutions. In that spirit, we're proud to announce the launch of our exclusive X2Power lithium iron phosphate batteries. These lithium batteries offer a lighter, safer, more efficient alternative to traditional SLA batteries. Keep reading for details on why your business should consider switching to lithium batteries.

What are Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries?

Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are a type of lithium-ion battery that can be used to power most of the applications that traditionally rely on sealed lead acid batteries. As you can see from the bullet points below, LiFePO4 batteries outperform lead acid batteries in nearly every category:

  • Longer lifespans - LiFePO4 batteries provide up to 10 times more cycles than a traditional lead acid battery
  • Faster charging - LiFePO4 batteries charge up to 4X faster than SLA batteries
  • Constant power throughout the battery's discharge - an LiFePO4 battery provides the same power at the end of its charging cycle as it does at the beginning
  • Low self-discharge rate - an LiFePO4 battery holds its charge for much longer in storage than an SLA battery
  • Lightweight - LiFePO4 batteries are 50% lighter than equivalent SLA batteries
  • Safer - LiFePO4 batteries have excellent chemical stability which prevents thermal runaway
  • Battery Management System - controls the battery's parameters to protect against overcharging and over-discharging

What is the Cost of a Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery?

A lithium iron phosphate battery does cost more upfront than an SLA option. However, due to their much longer lifespans, lithium batteries typically save money in the long run, since they don't need to be replaced as often.

An LiFePO4 battery can also be discharged down to 90% before it requires recharging, providing significantly longer run times between charging cycles. This saves you maintenance time, since you'll be swapping out batteries less frequently.

What are Lithium Batteries Used for?

LiFePO4 batteries can be used for a number of common medical, manufacturing and industrial applications, including:

  • Backup UPS systems
  • Medical carts
  • Forklifts & scissor lifts
  • Emergency lighting
  • Fire & securing lighting
  • Floor scrubbers & sweepers
  • Lawn & garden equipment
  • Backup sump pumps
  • Generators
  • Wheelchairs & mobility scooters

What Lithium Batteries Does Batteries Plus Offer?

We are currently offering three different LiFePO4 batteries from X2Power:
