There are many advantages to partnering with Batteries Plus. We offer discount volume pricing on thousands of unique battery solutions, but the savings doesn't stop there. As a business account holder, you'll also be paired with your own dedicated advisor who will actively work with you to find the most efficient solution for your business' needs. Different batteries have different chemistries and oftentimes you can cut your costs just by switching to a better battery. Here are just a few examples of some of the money saving solutions available from Batteries Plus.

What are the Advantages of Changing from Alkaline to Lithium Batteries?

Alkaline batteries are used to power a long list of commercial applications, including everything from two-way radios, to security cameras, touchless faucets and even medical crash carts. Batteries Plus offers a number of ways to save on your disposable battery needs. We offer a wide range of alkaline options, including longer-lasting Duracell Pro and Duracell Pro Intense batteries, which are specifically designed for industrial applications. This cost calculator   illustrates just how much you can save by switching to Procell alkaline batteries.

Did you know that switching to lithium batteries can end up saving you money over time? Due to their higher energy densities, lithium batteries have much longer lifespans than alkaline batteries. That means less time spent replacing them. They also hold their power for much longer in storage and operate better in extreme temperatures.

What are the Advantages of Changing from SLA to Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries?

Businesses rely on SLA batteries to power emergency lighting, UPS backup units, security systems and more. If you're looking to get the best possible ROI on your energy costs, Batteries Plus can help you make the switch to lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries.

A LiFePO4 battery has a typical life cycle of about eight years, which is roughly ten times longer than an equivalent SLA option. They also recharge four times faster and have significantly longer run times between charging cycles. Plus, LiFePO4 batteries are much lighter and operate in a wider range of temperatures, including temperatures as low as 5°F.

What are the Advantages of Using Replacement Battery Cartridge Kits for Your UPS System?

Let's talk UPS backup units. If your business has an office, you undoubtedly have a UPS backup in your facility. Traditionally, these backup units run on SLA batteries, however, Batteries Plus offers replacement battery cartridge kits (AKA RBC kits) as a convenient alternative.

Using an RBC kit greatly simplifies the process of replacing the batteries in a UPS. Instead of having to replace and reconnect the batteries yourself, the RBC comes pre-kitted with all of the batteries already connected. That means all you have to do is simply plug the cartridge into your system and it's ready to go. They also tend to be cheaper than buying the equivalent number of SLA batteries on your own.
