Lithium-ion battery technology has been a frequent discussion point in the UPS industry lately, and we at QPS have had many inquiries about the technology from our clients and prospects. Some questions we have been asked include: What is the battery chemistry like? What applications is the technology best suited for? What are the maintenance requirements like? Is it a safe technology?
Join us on March 12th in Brookfield, Wisconsin as we explore the answer to these questions and more. QPS is hosting a seminar on Lithium-Ion battery technology, with speaker AJ Savant from Toshiba to discuss the chemistry, evolution, and applications for this technology in the critical power industry. This will be an in-depth exploration of this technology and should not be missed! We hope to see all of you there!

Why? Just what is so exciting about Lithium-Ion battery technology? Lithium technology boasts very high cycle rates, prolonging the life of the battery. Lithium-ion technology can also be installed in harsh, high temperature environments, while still performing better than traditional lead-acid batteries, giving them a wider range of uses. In addition, Lithium-ion system has different maintenance requirements than traditional lead acid batteries. Faster recharge rates and a more linear discharge curve make lithium an attractive option to traditional battery systems.
