Battery Technology for Data Centers: VRLA vs. Li-ion

Cover

Lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries have been used commercially for over 20 years in various applicationsā€”and because prices are now decreasing, they are now becoming a viable option for data center UPS. Why then have they not been commonly adopted as batteries for static2 data center UPSs?

Examine an overview of li-ion batteries as compared to VRLA batteries for static UPS applications. Access this white paper to discover a sensitivity analysis revealing the TCO drivers for li-ion adoption, as well as the effect of temperature on runtime and cooling, and learn the benefits of li-ion over VRLA, including:

  • Fewer battery replacements required over the life of the UPS
  • Four or more times faster charging
  • 3x less weight for the same amount of energy
  • And 2 moreĀ
