Alternatives to Li-Ion Batteries - AGM Batteries and TPPL Batteries


    The growth of the electric vehicle market has led to the rapid development of lithium-ion battery technology. Lithium-ion batteries have high charge acceptance and fast charging capabilities. Charging speed, energy efficiency, and battery life are all factors that attract lithium-ion batteries to UPS power applications. The maintenance requirements of these batteries are low due to the built-in diagnostics of the battery management system.​

    The thin-plate pure lead battery is an advanced form of lead-acid battery and has advantages over glass fiber separator batteries. First, thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) batteries have good fast-charging capabilities. Depending on the charging current and voltage parameters used, they can be fully charged in 2 and a half hours.​

    Fiberglass separator (AGM) batteries have a baseline life of 5 to 6 years, while thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) batteries are designed to last more than 12 years. Despite the compactness of thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) battery technology Li-ion batteries, solutions with high energy density are possible. Therefore, it is worth considering alternatives to traditional lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries, such as thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) batteries, which offer similar performance advantages to lithium-ion batteries and offer advantages over traditional fiberglass separators ( AGM) battery for higher energy efficiency.
