When it comes to wheelchair applications, sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries have been the dominant rechargeable option mainly because of their low upfront costs. Now that lithium-ion (Li-ion) has emerged as a safe, energy-dense, reliable alternative, SLA batteries are starting to transition away from being the de-facto power source for electric wheelchairs. Because SLA power sources present several challenges to users of electric wheelchairs, the transition to Li-ion comes as an opportunity to provide a better experience with a lower overall cost of ownership.
In our latest case study, you'll learn about:
- End user challenges with Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries in electric wheelchair applications
- Advantages of switching to Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries as power source
- How Inventus Power's new U1LiFePRO batteries present electric wheelchair OEMs with an opportunity to upgrade their power source and improve the user experience
