Discount Lithium-Ion Batteries

December 10th Fact-of-the-Day

Beware of purchasing lithium-ion batteries that are offered at exceptionally low prices. Lithium-ion batteries must be recharged periodically during storage to retain their design runtime performance. It is expensive for dealers and distributors to repeatedly recharge batteries in inventory, so many don't do it. The performance of lithium-ion batteries that have been in stock a considerable time without recharging will be poor. Even where inventory has been recharged periodically, each recharge during storage will have subtracted from the total number recharge cycles that will be available after purchase. It is important to check lithium-ion battery code-dates and insist of freshly manufactured batteries. ©2004 Martek, International. All rights reserved.
