Lithium advantages for marine applications
The lithium batteries are built to last for a longer period of time and engineered to be extremely safe. Furthermore, they offer high discharge rates, don’t require active maintenance, are lightweight and are fully charged in no-time.
A lithium-ion battery is a family of rechargeable battery types in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging.
The characteristics of a lithium battery
The advantages of lithium-ion batteries (Li-ion) include their high efficiency, long cycle life, high energy density, and high power density . Because of these characteristics, as well as their ability to discharge quickly, they are ideal for portable electronics.
What are the characteristics of a marine battery?
For slower discharges, marine deep cycle batteries have thicker plates. For long periods of time, deep cycle batteries provide a low charging current. As opposed to regular car batteries, which are designed to provide a high current for a short period of time.
