We've all seen the news articles saying Lithium batteries aren't safe for transport, Lithium batteries are dangerous.
High quality, reliable rechargeable batteries are essential for powering any mobility scooter or electric wheelchair.
When installing any type of deep cycle battery, it’s important to ensure you use a battery charger suited to the specific battery technology being used. Lithium Phosphate batteries function very differently to VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) batteries and therefore have different charging requirements.
A common question we get asked about in relation to Lithium batteries is how to best connect multiple batteries together to achieve correct voltage or capacity for a specific system. At Valen, we don’t recommend series connecting Lithium batteries. However, Lithium batteries can be placed in parallel if required and done correctly.
As most solar powered pedestals for flume gates and pen stocks in the irrigation industry are used in remote applications, there are a number of challenging factors that need to be overcome in relation to the systems’ batteries. These factors include heat, battery gassing, weight and longevity. Well-designed and high quality Lithium batteries.
VMS signs, radar signs, arrow boards and portable traffic lights all rely on some form of a battery system, whether the battery is an AGM, Gel or Lithium battery. Often these battery systems are charged by solar panels, and in some cases, the charging only happens when the sign is back at base.
A common issue for those working on mission-critical, remote communications projects is choosing the right battery technology to ensure Service Level Agreements (SLA's) are met across different sites. Guaranteeing uptime and arranging maintenance can be particularly difficult for solar-powered remote locations. Thankfully, Lithium batteries.
