UPS Lithium-ion Batteries
While the initial cost of lithium-ion batteries is more than traditional valve-regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries, their many long-term benefits make them a smart choice for data centers and critical facilities of all sizes.
The most common benefit CEG's customers cite for making the switch to lithium-ion is their longer service life. IT professionals can easily deploy lithium-ion UPSs without the maintenance and refresh challenges typically associated with traditional lead acid batteries. The extended battery life enables users to align their UPS refresh cycles with the rest of IT stack, saving the time and money that would be spent on labor and battery replacement. This “set it and forget it” value proposition is especially appealing to edge environments or anywhere operations are critical yet IT resources are constrained.
