Li-Ion

Li-Ion

TAB Traction Li-Ion batteries are designed to deliver longer cycle life, reduction of the total ownership costs, higher productivity and faster charging and are completely maintenance free. TAB BMS (Battery Management System) allows you to monitor the status and health of the battery at any time.

Modules and cells that are used in our batteries are designed in accordance with IEC 62133-2:2017. Modules and cells are certified according to UN38.3.

Advantages of Lithium-Ion vs. Lead-Acid Batteries:

  • Compared with lead-acid, a lithium battery does not require any maintenance and produces no toxic emissions.
  • Fast (<2 hours)  and  flexible  charging,  opportunity  charging and two-times longer battery life than lead-acid batteries will increase productivity of your equipment and will take your business to the next level of efficiency.

Lithium-Ion Batteries:
Operating time approx. 21-22 h
Fast/Opportunity charging time approx. 2-3 h

Lead-Acid Batteries:
Operating timeapprox. 8 h
Charging time/rest periods approx. 8 h
