"Should I go for lead acid batteries or lithium ion batteries."
Although the initial cost of lithium ion batteries is higher than that of the lead acid equivalent we would recommend lithium ion. The overall lifespan and superior efficiency of lithium ion batteries make the long term cost of lithium ion far less.
Benefits of lithium ion over lead acid batteries
Cost over lifespan makes it cheaper than lead acid counterpart.
Cycle life of lithium ion up to 10 x that of lead acid.
Lead acid - +/- 500 cycles @ 80% Discharge - +/- 800 cycles @ 55% discharge
Lithium ion - +/1 3000 cycles 80% Discharge - +/- 8000 cycles @ 55% discharge
Lead acid batteries will drop voltage during the discharge cycle lithium ion battery will maintain the voltage during discharge.
Lithium ion batteries are safer and have a smaller environmental impact than lead acid.
Lithium ion batteries are lighter and smaller than lead acid batteries.
