With ever increasing living costs and a slow economy, you count every cent, so 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 that they can now be used in motorcycles.
Here are 5 reasons why motorcyclists should consider switching to lithium-ion batteries
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
