Lithium Power

DISCOVER THE MANY ADVANTAGES OF LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES

  • More power with less weight
  • Up to 40% more compact and 50% lighter than conventional cordless garden tools
  • No self-discharge and memory effect, so they are always ready to use
  • Short charge times in comparison to conventional batteries

What is Lithium Ion and why is it a BETTER BATTERY?

A combination of infusing Lithium – the lightest known metal (soft, silvery elements) with Ions – electrically charged atoms into "cells" gives the best power/weight/density ratio (within a reasonable cost) hence their relatively light weight is ideal for batteries to power a range of cordless lawn & garden tools.

Will cold storage over winter affect the self discharging?

lithium_life.jpgLithium Ion Batteries are better stored in a cool place than if the battery was stored at room temperature. Lithium Ion batteries will discharge at about 1% per month (1% per day for NiCad) in the cold, whilst they lose about 5% per month at room temperature.

 
This warmer storage will shorten the life of the battery too. So remember, the higher the temperature, the more "life" is used up hence cooling is essential. Storage in a hot garden shed will be worse for the battery than if left in a cool dark location. The absolute ideal storage conditions would be c.40% charged at around 5°C. However, storing a discharged battery for a long period below freezing point is not recommended.
