Why is lithium battery a better replacement for lead-acid battery

Himax - 12V 300Ah Lifepo4 Battery

Traditional lead-acid battery will cause great pollution to the environment after being discarded, and lead vapor will appear. Lead is not easily excreted from the body and can also cause metabolic, reproductive and neurological diseases in the human body. Once the lead content in the human body exceeds the standard, it will cause mental decline, fetal malformations, easily induce malignant tumors in children, and even lead to death.

AGM Replacement Battery

Compared with lead-acid battery, lithium-ion battery has huge advantages in environmental protection. The materials used in lithium-ion battery contain harmful heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, and mercury. No pollutants appear during the processing and use of lithium-ion battery, which protects human health. The problem of contaminating water sources and soil during the recycling process of waste battery is also easily solved.

AGM replacement battery does not contain any heavy metals or rare metals. It is non-toxic and pollution-free in both processing and use. It complies with European RoHS regulations and is a green battery.

In addition, the advantages of lithium-ion battery is large specific energy, long cycle life, low self-discharge rate, and no memory effect. Lithium-ion battery has high storage energy density, currently reaching 460-600Wh/kg, which is about 6-7 times that of lead-acid battery; the service life of lithium iron phosphate battery can reach 6 years or more than 5,000 cycles.

That’s why lithium-ion battery now is a better AGM replacement battery.

Lithium-ion has developed rapidly in the past decade and will continue to expand and occupy the vast majority of the battery industry’s market share in the future.


HIMAX has been engaged in li ion customized battery manufacturing for over 12 years. And we would like to share with our customer about the knowledge of AGM replacement battery and lead-acid battery.
