Upgrading to Li-ion from Lead Acid

Both the Lithium-ion (Li-ion) and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery markets are expected to grow over the next several years. Applications with high voltage and capacity requirements are adopting Li-ion technology because of its many advantages- especially the high energy density, small size and low weight that this technology provides. Historically, SLA batteries have had a few superior technical traits, in addition to their extremely low cost, that have kept them leading the majority of the overall battery market. However, recent innovations in Li-ion chemistry has made it extremely competitive in markets that are weight sensitive and inconvenienced by SLA's need for frequent maintenance. Many devices have required batteries for power back-up and these are primed for direct Li-ion replacement of SLA. In the medical market alone, these applications include infusion pumps, ventilators, wheelchairs and workstation carts. This paper will outline the technical and business considerations involved in converting an existing product from SLA to Li-ion.
