Which one is the best? Lithium battery or lead-acid battery?

With the development of science, there are all kinds of energy storage batteries everywhere. A complete and healthy battery system can bring sufficient power for your RV, off-grid, home, and yacht, etc.

Currently, lithium batteries and lead-acid batteries are most commonly used. Today, let's talk about the differences between lead-acid batteries and lithium batteries in three aspects: cost, practicability and stability-that everyone is more concerned about.

Cost: Although lithium batteries are more expensive than lead-acid battery, it last longer than Lead-acid battery. As consumers, we should be concerned about whether the price of the goods is worth it. For example, spending 5 dollars to buy a lamp can only be used for 2 years, and spending 10 dollars to buy a lamp but it can be used for 10 years. I think many people will choose the latter.

According to data, the price of lithium batteries of the same specification is about twice that of lead-acid batteries. In addition, considering that lead-acid batteries can be recycled and that the recycling rate of lithium batteries is low, the price of lithium batteries should be three times that of lead-acid batteries.

In theory, a good quality lithium battery can be fully charged and discharged over 2000 times, and a lead-acid battery can be fully charged and discharged 200~500 times. However, due to the relatively slow decay of lithium batteries, they can generally be used for about 10 years, and lead-acid batteries only can be used for 2~3 years. In fact, you only need to spend 2~3 times the price to buy a lithium battery and you can use it for 5 times longer than lead-acid battery, and there is no need for intermediate replacement and maintenance costs. Wouldn't it be a better choice?

Practicality: Practicality usually has two aspects: charging speed and battery weight. Under the same circumstances, the charging speed of lithium batteries is faster than that of lead-acid batteries, and supports fast charging, which means that the charging efficiency of lithium batteries is higher than that of lead-acid batteries.

In terms of weight, because of the higher energy density of lithium batteries, under the same specifications (same voltage and capacity), the weight of lithium batteries is only less than 1/2 of that of lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries is lighter, more applicable, and have longer battery life.

Stability: Regular and qualified batteries, whether they are lead-acid batteries or lithium batteries, are guaranteed in terms of stability. Lead-acid batteries contain harmful elements. If they are leaked, they may cause pollution to the human body or the environment. However, lithium iron phosphate batteries do not contain any heavy metal elements that are harmful to the human body. It is currently the safest electrode material for lithium ion batteries. Lithium iron phosphate batteries has past strict safety tests and will not explode even in a traffic accident.

At last, if you want to upgrade your original lead-acid battery system to a new lithium iron phosphate battery system, Mustart Battery is one of the best choice that can meet all your need. Here is Mustart battery link:


Mustart battery will be available in January, and we will choose some of you to use and test our battery for free. If you are interested in participating, you can leave your name and email address. We will notify the final result by email.
