Important information for choosing the right hardware.

Voltage - The most important aspect when upgrading to a Lithium Battery is ensuring the voltage is compatible. As an example, if you have a 36V Lead-Acid application, your Lithium battery should match the voltage as close as possible. A small variance in voltage (around 6%) is acceptable however using a 48V battery in a 36V application will cause damage. Common voltages for electrical equipment is 24V, 36V, 48V. Think of the voltage as the horse power in your application.

Capacity (Amp Hours) - A higher capacity (more amp hours) battery will give you a longer run time before requiring charging. The downside is that larger capacity batteries cost more money and are larger. When selecting a capacity, you should consider the way the equipment is used to ensure your expectations are met.

Installation - We always recommend a professional install for Lithium batteries. Inexperienced installers risk damaging equipment during the installation process. This can include damaging other expensive electrical components such as the electric motors and controllers as well as the battery and charger.
