Should you choose old technology and choose a heavy lead-acid motorcycle battery? Or choose the newer lighter lithium-ion battery technology?

They are however more expensive than a lead acid, but the cost may be well worth it. On average a lithium-ion battery costs 30% more than a lead-acid. Lithium-ion batteries are generally much smaller than lead-acid. For this reason, make certain upon purchase that it will fit your motorcycle. Many sellers of lithium-ion batteries will put the battery in a "stock case" for your brand/model motorcycle. That means that they'll make it the same size as your stock lead-acid battery so it will fit perfectly in the battery compartment of your Harley-Davidson as an example. If you choose to buy the smaller size lithium-ion it may bounce around in your large battery compartment. Many come with shims so you can try to wedge the battery in to keep it from moving around. My recommendation is to get a lithium-ion battery with the correct case size for your application. When purchasing a lithium-ion, also be aware of the terminal placement such as side or top to make sure it will work with your application. Again, this is why I bought a direct replacement lithium-ion made for my Harley Street Glide that has everything the same as my lead-acid. Lithium-ion batteries often have more cold cranking amps (CCA) and that means more powerful starts. As an example, the Twin Power Lithium Ion Battery -DLFP30HL-BS-H I bought has 625 CCA, whereas a typical lead-acid for a Harley will have 400-500 CCA. The first possible drawback to a lithium-ion is that if you let it fall to below 11 volts by accidentally leaving your headlight as an example, you may permanently damage the battery. Whereas, a lead-acid in good shape could be charged and likely recover. The second drawback, not really in my opinion, to a lithium-ion motorcycle battery, is that if you leave your motorcycle out in temperatures below freezing for an extended period of time, you'll have to "wake" the battery to get it cycling. This is easily done by turning your headlight on for a short period or bumping the starter a few times. Once awake, you lithium-ion goes to work fast and gives you those cold cranking amps. I tested my lithium-ion battery by placing it in my freezer for a bit over two hours at 12 degrees Fahrenheit. I tested it on my Harley and it fired right up and the battery never went to sleep. That tells me that you'd need to have your bike in the below-freezing temps for some time before it would go to sleep. Again, easily overcome by just bumping your starter or turning your headlight on to wake it. An upside is that Lithium-ion batteries don't really need to be on a battery tender all winter like a lead-acid as they only lose about 10% of their charge a year while sitting. Whereas, a lead-acid battery loses 1% per day. Just remove the negative battery terminal on your lithium-ion battery when storing your motorcycle & you're good to go. Then, just charge it up and top it off before riding season. In contrast, you should keep your lead-acid on a battery tender while you park and/or store your motorcycle for any length of time to greatly increase its lifespan.

Please Subscribe and get updated for more videos! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx-VHhBYAk2FeQaqFMic5Ow MAGNETI MARELLI Ecologiche, potenti, compatte e leggerissime! Fino ad oggi le batterie sono sempre state realizzate con la tecnologia piombo-acido, il litio rappresenta quindi una svolta decisiva nel mondo delle batterie. I vantaggi che rendono la nuova batteria Lithium Ion sono innanzitutto le dimensioni ridotte rispetto alle batterie tradizionali e più leggere mediamente del 50%! La potenza è di circa quattro volte superiore rispetto alle batterie standard: 40CA contro i 10CA delle batterie al piombo. Questo vantaggio si traduce nella possibilità di erogare forti correnti di accensione permettendo così avviamenti sicuri anche alle basse temperature invernali e con i motori bicilindrici di grossa cubatura (Ducati, BMW, ecc.) che richiedono alti valori di corrente di spunto all’avviamento. L'assenza di piombo, di acido e di altri metalli pesanti rende la batteria non inquinante, non esplosiva e non infiammambile. E' quindi l'ideale per viaggiare con energia pulita ed in massima sicurezza. Un ulteriore importante vantaggio è dato dal ridottissimo tempo di ricarica: sono sufficienti 6 minuti per una ricarica al 90%! La durata del ciclo di vita della batteria è stimato in circa 2000 cicli, contro i 150/300 di una batteria standard di qualità, mentre il mantenimento di carica è di circa 1 anno, contro 6 mesi delle batterie tradizionali. CARATTERISTICHE PRINCIPALI: -Ridotto Peso rispetto alle batterie Piombo/Acido – fino a 5 volte più leggere -Alta Corrente di Spunto (CCA) -Indicatore a led per tenerne sotto controllo lo stato -Bassissima Autoscarica – meno del 6% in un anno -Bassa resistenza interna. -Oltre 2000 cicli di carica/scarica – 6 volte superiore alle tradizionali -Nessun rischio di fuoriuscita di acido -Nessun inquinamento in quanto non contengono acidi e metalli pesanti come piombo, cadmio o mercurio. -Ricarica rapida - fino al 90% in 6 minuti fornendo corrente di ricarica 10 volte superiore alla sua capacità. -Prestazioni straordinarie anche ad alte temperature (60-80°C) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Greater durability and higher number of cycles. The lithium battery is maintained for a much longer time (one year about 2/6 months against the traditional batteries). Built without lead, these batteries are also less polluting. From today the new lithium batteries MAGNETI MARELLI replace traditional batteries with lead-acid technology. Their characteristics, clearly above, make it applicable in many areas besides engine, such as scientific research, industrial automation etc. Smaller dimensions and reduced weight (weighing up to 1/4 of conventional batteries!). Much more powerful and with less cooldown-few minutes against traditional battery hours -. Greater opportunity to secure departures even at low temperatures.-POWERFUL-COMPACT ECO-READ MUSIC IN THIS VIDEO IS ROYALTY FREE MUSIC AND PROVIDED BY: "Doobly Doo" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0

Fires and explosions from the hoverboard primarily occurred from the lithium-ion batteries, so UL adopted a coordinated safety strategy and reviewed materials and components by looking at the product’s electrical system as a whole. Electrical tests such as the overcharge and overdischarge tests assess the electrical system safety. The Li-ion battery is relatively safe but, with the billions of batteries used around the world on a daily basis, it is inevitable that some failures will occur. UL’s work is aimed at helping to reduce the number of those failures.

With new technology rolling out, it is becoming safer to begin adopting this techonology and reap the significant benefits in the form of larger cranking amps and significantly less weight. It has become safe to the point that oem industries such as Ducati and Honda started adopting and selling motorcycles equipped with lithium batteries at the dealership. If you go on to forums and ask which lithium battery brand to buy, I can bet you the majority would said Shorai. While Shorai has been around for almost as early as lithium batteries became available for motorcycles, there are several reasons why they are no longer the best choice and why OEM industries such as Ducati and Honda did not sign a contract with them to supply higher end model bikes with their lithium batteries. For a disposable commodity such as a motorcycle battery, you do not get the best value (and technology) with Shorai per dollar spent. Instead, Ducati and Honda have adopted lithium technology from Skyrich batteries which is owned by the parent company HangZhou HaiJu Holding Ltd. and the makers of other big name battery brands such as Deltran Battery, WPS, Shido, Magneti Marelli etc. All of these newer batteries incorporate an intergrated circuit and battery monitoring system (BMS) on board the battery so charge/discharge is monitored safely and ensures the cells are balanced. Shorai, on the other hand, still required a dedicated balance charger. With that said, however, all lithium batteries are still less robust to abuse and misuse compared to lead acid. Extra care must always be taken when using lithium phosphate batteries.

Load testing a 6S12P (22.2V 18Ah) custom made ebike battery. Constructed of 72 pcs of 18650 Lithium Manganese cells, Samsumg INR18650-15M. I test them first at 24A (1.34C) and 45A (2.5C) to monitor the voltage drop and get an idea of their operating capabilities. Each series cell group consists of 12 parallel cells that were matched for capacity and internal resistance. Each individual cell put out 5.5A +/- 0.1mah and held 3.7V for 15 minutes during the initial testing. So assuming that performance remains constant the battery pack should be able to pump 65A for 15 minutes before hitting a low voltage cutoff of 3.1V.

Want to include a small Lithium Ion or Lithium Ion Polymer battery into your next project? It's easy! Dave gives you the low down on how they work and how to charge them and select a suitable charging IC. NOTE: For safety you should always use circuit protected cells as per the larger cell I was holding up. It protects against over-discharge, over-voltage, shorts etc. (BTW, the reference to Lithium Ion Polymer being the same as Lithium Ion is in terms of charging, if that was not clear. The Ion Polymer type have polymer anode material and hence a different construction that allows the small pouch type cells shown in the video, and other thin odd shapes shown toward the end)

In this episode, we’ll be diving into this data and seeing how it translates to owners. Back in April, I shared data on Tesla battery degradation. Since then, Tesla owners have been measuring and sharing their battery degradation data – and the results have been surprising. Tesla owners who contributed to this data first drained their EV batteries down to 0%, then charged fully them to 100%. This is to get a consistent measurement on how much energy a battery can hold. Despite the data, many people wonder why lithium-ion batteries in phones and laptops can barely hold a charge after a few years, while lithium-ion EV batteries don’t suffer the same fate. Well, according to lithium-ion battery cells studies, after 500-800 charging cycles and 100,000 to 150.000 miles a battery’s charging capacity drops to around 70%. However, most EV owners don’t typical drain their batteries to 0% or 100%. This increases the battery life significantly. Based on study estimates, owners who practice partial charging generally see degradation after 1,200-1,500 charging cycles and 350,000 miles of life. Because study data on EV battery life is limited, the data provided by real owners, as mentioned above, is much more valuable. It is important to note, charging habits are not the only contribution factors to battery life as factors like temperature and usage patterns also play a role. As stated, most owners don’t typically run their batteries to 0%, and by default a Tesla battery stops charging at 80%. This is to reduce battery strain.To even further reduce battery strain, Tesla may limit Fast Charging speeds. All of these factors combined are Tesla’s safeguard to help protect your vehicle, ensure you have a great experience with your luxury EV as well as allow for an expansive lifespan (unlike phone and laptop batteries). In running some regression analysis on the user-provide data, I found that there was some high volatility. This is likely due to the factor that the data is user-reported, and it is not being measured in a controlled environment. When Eindhoven University of Technology Systems and Control Professor, Maarten Steinbuch, looked at this data, he found that "on average the batteries have 92% remaining at 240.000 km. If the linear behavior would continue, then the ‘lifetime’ (still 80% capacity left) can be calculated as follows: 92-80 = 12% times 45,000 km = 540,000 km.” I also looked at another studied from YouTuber and battery aficionado Jehu Garcia. He tested some early Tesla batteries and found that without use, batteries degraded at about .35% per year. Which means, after about 285 years, these batteries will be almost completely dead. Working with the figure that batteries will retain more than 80% of their capacities for up 310,000 miles and considering that the average US drives about 13,5000 miles, on average, a Tesla battery does not need replacing for around 23 years. The point is, by the time your Tesla battery wears out, we’ll be in a totally new world - and likely won’t even be driving ourselves anymore. In fact, Elon Musk recently stated that he thinks in 20 years we won’t even have steering wheels in cars. So, when it comes to the lifespan of your Tesla battery, rest easy. It will likely outlast the rest of your car. I compiled my data using the following sources: https://steinbuch.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/tesla-model-s-battery-degradation-data/ https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/onh00/bar8.htm As always, for the latest Tesla news, visit us at Teslanomics.co – and sign-up for our email updates!

In this video, I show you how I recycled my old Lithium ion battery pack and reused the cell balancing circuit board. The original pack used standard 18650 Li-ion cells and had a capacity of 10 AH at 29.4 V. Since this pack did not conveniently allow me to change broken 18650 cells with new ones, I decided to build my own design. This pack is going to have about 37 AH at 29.2 V and can get me on my electric bike more than 80 Km of range. All the 84 cells which I am going to use can be checked and replace in less than ten minutes. I first started this project with some cheap cells from China which were labeled to hold up to 4600 mah. However, as it turned out, it was no more than a terrible scam. They had no more than 1200 mah. I only managed to get 34 km of range out of them. Therefor I went back to the dealer and complained. Luckily, he wanted to get rid of me as quietly as possible and kindly helped me to get the original Panasonic 18650 3100 mah cells from Japan. Since I designed the positive connectors for nipples, the Panasonic 18650 cells are flat on the top. I had to redesign the pack a little. After that, charging the battery pack went just fine and my first trip was very impressive. First 16 km each cell discharged 0.17 V, the second 17 km they discharged 0.14 V each. Maximum charge for each cell is 4.2 Volts, whereas I do charge them to 4.17 V. The minimum cutoff on my setup is at 3.42 Volts. On 0.14 V of discharge I can go an average of 16 km. 4.17 V maximum charge - 3.42 minimum charge, leaves my with 0.75 V. After going five times 16 Km, there is still 0.05 V per cell left. Recharging the battery pack takes about 8 hours. The charger goes perfectly through all three different charging speeds. It stays in the fastest for up to 4 hours than goes into the second for another 1.5 hours and stays in the slowest till the cells are full. It then turns off. All cells are charged this way at a maximum of 650 mah, which is good. The Panasonic lab tests promise 500 life cycles. This however are lab conditions. I am very optimistic that my setup will meet these conditions now most of the time, and therefor provide me with the promised 500 charging cycles. This should leave me with 40 000 Km and about 3.5 years before the pack goes down to 80 to 90% of it's original capacity. I know the positive connection is a little sub optimal. I should have made the top Plexiglas 0.5 centimeters thinner and have 7 separate tops like the ones I use now, but with the copper plates and nipples. Now I have to use two copper-plates cause I haven't thought it all the way through. I will change this when I have time. For now, everything works very perfectly. This is a good weekend project.
