Let’s Talk Batteries.

Comparing batteries is not always an easy task.  Each battery category has different characteristics and generally allow for different Depths of Discharge (DoD) under their respective manufacturer warranties. You should be asking, “How much of that battery is useable, under what conditions, and for how long?”

  Strength Weakness Typical Useable AH (Depth of Discharge)
Lead-Acid Good cold resistance, cheap ~1 year warranty, short service life, off-gassing, heavy, requires maintenance

25%

AGM No off-gasing, no maintenance, good cold resistance ~2 year warranty, moderate service life, heavy

20%

PLC Advanced AGM No off-gasing, no maintenance, excellent cold resistance, 5 year warranty, Pure Lead Carbon (PLC) tech means more available power Heavy

50%

Lithium Long lasting, great warranty, light weight, fast charge/discharge Cannot charge below 32F without damage, high upfront cost

80%

Heated Lithium Long lasting, great warranty, light weight, fast charge/discharge, operation below 32F w/ integrated heater, Bluetooth App High upfront cost
