With ever increasing living costs and a slow economy, you count every cent, there’s no better time for motorcyclists to invest in a lithium-ion battery.
As technology advances, lithium-ion batteries have been designed in such a way they can now be used in motorcycles.
Here are 5 reasons why motorcyclists should consider switching to lithium-ion batteries
1. Save money
Lithium-ion batteries last twice as-long-as lead acid batteries, typically used in motorcycles. Once you get the lithium-ion batteries fitted for your motorcycle and take proper care of it, they can last between 5 and 8 years. This makes battery replacement cheaper in the long run.
2. Environmentally friendly
Of all vehicle batteries, lithium-ion batteries are the most environmentally friendly. They have a low self-discharge rate and are recyclable. And if you take your old motorcycle batteries to your nearest Battery Centre branch, they'll get the recycling done for you in a safe and efficient manner and give you 10% off your next battery.
3. No risk of overcharging
The lithium-ion battery comes with a built-in equalizing charge protection board. This helps the battery to only charge to full capacity. Eliminating the risk of overcharging and harming the life span of your battery.
4. Lower fuel consumption
The efficiency of fuel combustion inside the engine cylinder improves when making the switch from lead acid battery to lithium-ion battery. This means a smoother ride with more power and lower fuel consumption for your motorcycle.
5. Battery can be stored up to a year
If you're not going to use your motorcycle for long periods, it's best to remove the lithium-ion battery and store it separately. If you take proper care of it and keep the battery in a well-ventilated room, the lithium-ion battery will still work perfectly when reconnected to your motorcycle, up to 12 months after proper storage.
