A bank of Lithium-Ion Batteries Updated- big enough to supply about 500 U.S.

Great way to use lithium-ion batteries

This is one of the most productive ways I have seen. Hence, to produce battery power from lithium technology. Including, the run of things going wrong with this battery type.

May be coming to an end but only time will tell. Scientists that constructed this giant  bank. As a result, must be confident of its success.Experimenting, by using smaller banks.So before en- barking on this massive 1440 batteries in one system. Also noticing the large amount of fire extinguishers in the image.

lithium-Ion technology is now used on many applications.Therefore, I have just been offered some 22amp golf batteries built with Lithium technology. Of course,I am not sure if they stand the test of time. Thus, regarding the fire problems that they have been only time will tell. Of course,the use of them in battery storage will be strictly controlled by temperature monitoring having on certain aircraft, i suppose devices, so i suppose that the overheating and fire problem will not exist.

To update this post, Lithium-ion batteries are now taking off and are used on a number of applications. These are from portable power drills to golf trolley and mobility vehicles. i still feel though that other technologies will be around in the near future, including our old favorite, lead acid batteries.

Vintage Car Batteries-Delivered to a customer who lives Under the Humber Bridge?

Vintage Car Batteries

Customer wanted 2×421 Vintage car batteries

Vintage Car Batteries

Some of our battery customers leave things right up to the last minute. Most of these are people who are just going of on there holidays in a caravan or motorhome, only to find out that their batteries are flat, just before they set off on there journey.

We manage to get a battery off to them most times but I have admit not all the time,(couriers can be next to useless).

However last week we received a call from a guy who lived in a nice part of the country at the far end of the Humber Bridge, in a little town called Barton on Humber. The weather was lovely and sunny, but when he tried to start his vintage car, the batteries were flat and indeed the old  Car Batteries were completely de-funked.

He needed 2×421 vintage hard rubber Classic Car Batteries and fast. Barton is not too far from Halifax and so I sent him the batteries by express couriers, (namely ME). It was a beautiful sunny day,(for a change) and so I delivered his Vintage Batteries, just to the Lincolnshire end of the Bridge.

Customer received his 2x 6 volt 421 Vintage Car Batteries and was highly delighted with the service.

I was also pleased with my work and enjoyed a wonderful day looking at the wonderfully picturesque Humber Bridge.

017 Tungstone Batteries-and Lucas Car batteries are back again

017 Tungstone Batteries

017 Tungstone Batteries revived again here in the UK

One of trends in the automotive business in the UK .Hence, is the revival of old product brands. Therefore, in the last six years we have seen brands resurrected (a good word at Easter time?) such as the

By the early 1980s 017 Tungstone Batteries were one of the largest battery manufacturers in the country, producing more than 700,000 new ones every year.

The Lucas name was sold off and re-branded by Johnson Controls.

Lucas brand.

There has been an increasing degree of partnership with Japanese corporations. Such as with Sumitomo on car-body systems . Or Yuasa Battery Company. In response to the growing likelihood that Japanese components firms . Therefore, will make inroads into the European market . So as deeply as they already have in the United States. Lucas Automotive have had  success in 1989 in attracting orders. From BMW and Saab-Scania . Thus, for fuel injection systems . Was an indication of its ability . Hence, to compete directly in Europe… http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/lucas-industries-plc-history/

As we can see in this . History of the Lucas company . Then, Lucas were doing cross country deals . In the expanding car component sector. Including, a deal that was struck with Yuasa batteries of Japan. As a result, these batteries went under the Lucas batteries brand name. They were imported with many battery part numbers .Coming into the UK and the USA that were unfamiliar to the British battery manufacturers .

Yuasa batteries actually started producing batteries in the USA in 1979. Producing car and AGM batteries . Hence,In 1996 the great Lucas empire . Merged with the American company Varity Corporation and the UK part of the company.

“Now trading under the name of ‘Lucas Electrical’ . Then the company concentrates on after-market component supply. Rather than as an original equipment supplier to manufacturers. Initially, the Lucas name was used on Elta’s existing products . Automotive light bulbs but has been gradually expanded to cover much the same range as the original Lucas company- light units, batteries, switches and controls, ignition components, re manufactured starter motors and alternators, wiper blades and electrical accessories. Operations and manufacturing take place at several locations in the UK as well as overseas”… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LucasVarity

This is the stage that the Lucas battery label in the famous green and white Lucas colours was sold off to a British Battery company in the Midlands.

Lucas Premium Batteries-Key to Hassle-Free-Car Maintenance from Johnson Controls

Lucas Premium Batteries

Lucas Premium Batteries

Of course, since I wrote this post in 2016, then things in the automotive industry have moved on. Especially, in the battery world. Including Lucas batteries!

Because of new emissions laws then the auto industry have had to develop cleaner and greener engines. Emission laws have become much stricter and car makers have had to develop cleaner engines. Including “Start-Stop “engines. I think we all probably know by now what this is. However judging by the emails that i have to respond to on Ebay ! Then you would not think so.

Customers still want the cheapest car battery possible ?

So, customers with large cars are always trying to cut corners by asking about the cheapest battery for their car. Annoyingly, they are always asking if our small 063 battery will fit their vehicle ! Of course the correct battery is usually ten times bigger and more powerful ! But they would fit the cheapest car battery possible if the could !

So, why this is I will never know ! This brings me on to “Stop-Start” batteries. Because of the constant switching on and off of the car engines that are fitted with stop-start then a stronger battery with a deep cycle capability had to be developed. So, this development came in two forms! The AGM car battery and the EFB car battery.

Consequently, the AGM battery comes out on the larger car models and the EFB car battery on the smaller car models. This is usually the general rule of thumb. So, without getting too technical, your battery will state which type it is. Of course the images on this post clearly show the different types ! AGM of EFB.

Not only are batteries a mode of transportation

Significantly,battery selection can be a reflection of their respective owners. Of course, this relates to the selection of different types of Lucas Premium Batteries and which car drivers buy. So, as I have siad earlier some of our online customers just want the Cheap Car Batteries. Whilst other people prefer to buy a better known brand, such as Lucas Premium Batteries.

If you require a certain type of battery for your vehicle. Say with a different terminal type,such as early Ford vehicles, like say the Ford Cortina or early Ford Escort. Of course, you can look for products on the search engines and type in ” Batteries to fit Ford Cortinas”.

Owning a vehicle has also become supposedly easier

Because there are more options now and the second hand car market is more organized and sophisticated. Of course, thanks to the Internet and e-commerce. However, a lot of people prefer to hold on to their old cars and vans! Because the not-so-recent global economic crisis has decreased their purchasing power. the average family in the UK spends £3000 a year less than before the financial crisis started.

So,for these reasons, it is important to keep your vehicle in tiptop shape for as long as possible. naturally,this could be achieved with proper vehicle maintenance. Apart from the periodic oil changes and tune-ups ! So, it is also crucial that your car be installed with dependable and well-performing  Premium grade Batteries.

Even with the advent od electric cars, the majority of the world’s vehicle owners drive cars run on fossil fuels.

Because of engine development including on-board computers. Specifically,these cars require more a more powerful supply of electric energy ! Without good quality Premium Batteries .Your car will not be able to start !Nor will it be able to have access to electrical power in the event of an alternator failure.

In addition, as I have said, nearly all recent car models have an on-board computer . Which is also powered by electrical charge supplied by the car batteries. Suffice it to say, people must pay as much attention to their car batteries as other aspects of their cars. There are numerous dealers of well-known brands such as ApolloPower batteries, Varta batteries, and of course Lucas batteries. All of which can be found at regular shops or online battery stores. They are best places to go to for information and recommendations for the most suitable Premium Batteries for your particular vehicle. There are certain factors to consider in choosing a Replacement Car Battery ! So be aware of these ! Consequently, by ensuring the longevity of your battery and the overall stress-free maintenance of your vehicle.

Lucas Premium Batteries

The first consideration is which battery is for you.

This can be determined by your old batteries part number ! Also by measuring the dimensions of your existing battery, including the terminal layout ! There are standard group sizes which cover all types of Lucas batteries.

 You can find out the group size of your car battery by checking the owner’s manual or through certain online sources for battery cataloging. Another important factor to consider is what the Amp/Hr rating is for your battery ?

Lucas Premium Batteries

This Lucas Premium Batteries has special bolt on terminals to fit early Ford cars

This is an important element in choosing a good car battery . Because it determines how long the battery can supply the required electrical power. Of course, in case the car’s alternator fails to function. IN my opinion,the best way to make sure that you buy the correct one ! So is to replace it with exactly the same part numbers as the one on the car.

For extra assistance, then you can also telephone your online dealer to help in choosing the correct one for your vehicle. Beware of online companies who are not willing to help you. On the whole, a confident honest company will have all contact details at hand to give you the correct advice. In the event of not giving you there contact details then do not buy from them ? Subsequently, they may not be there in two years time ! To cover you in case your battery should go faulty.

What is Cold cranking amps ?

Cold cranking amps or CCA refers to your power rating in terms of its ability to start your vehicle . Supplying electrical power even during extremely cold weather. Naturally, you will can indeed choose a new battery with a rating CCA higher than or equal to car’s original one. This will ensure that your car will continue to operate smoothly even in the harshest winters. Last but not least is the quality of the brand of the car battery that you can buy .

As I have reiterated before, there are many brands to choose from ! But only a handful are reliable and of good quality. In the UK, you can easily find Lucas Premium Batteries for any type of vehicle. Along with other makes and types, this is one of the most cost-effective brands known for its long life and stability.

Excellent Morgan sports car is owned by a Greek Guy (dont know his name) (but I know his battery size) 038 Morgan Battery?

 The owner of this Morgan is from Greece but now lives in the Halifax area. Here in the UK. For this reason, I am overwhelmed by the number of classic cars and sporty cars that we supply batteries to .Hence, this is proof that we are rapidly becoming one of the top battery centres here in Yorkshire. Therefore, we supply cheap batteries . Also, the more expensive batteries . Thus, like the start and stop batteries that are now supply on the new BMWs and Audis.

038 Morgan Battery

Beautiful Morgan calls in for a new 038 Morgan Battery fitting

 

 

Of course, the battery that was fitted to this Morgan was an 038 part number. Consequently, the 038 is one of the oldest modern type car battery. That we now sell . Subsequently, this battery was originally fitted to the old type BLMC Minis and Triumph Spitfires .Along with a host of other car models.

 We can supply these batteries in different size

Along with the 037 which was fitted to the early Fords, such as the Escort Mk1s and the Cortinas. We offer the 038 Morgan Battery and the 037 in both Lucas batteries and Tungstone Car Batteries.

Morgan Motor Company have been making sports car at the pretty market town of Malvern in Worcestershire. As well of being the home of the Morgan Motor Company, Malvern is a well-known tourist centre and is well worth a visit for more information … http://www.visitthemalverns.org/home

A factory tour of this famous car maker can be organised through the Malvern tourist office, where you can even hire one of the Morgan cars for the weekend. These cars are a mixture of racing cars and touring cars and no two cars are the same they all have the same quality craftsmanship, combined with materials, they one that we had call in for a 038 Morgan Battery was owned by a Greek guy who had four or five similar cars in a collection, should I say “wealthy” Greek  guy.

The strangers were Star readers, who spotted my column on Christmas Eve and were moved by Daigle’s Dickensian predicament.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

We  also gave a gift of two Free gift mobility Batteries ?

Just before Christmas. I was delivering a car battery to a customer in Dingle Lancashire the UK. Subsequently, I happened to take the the wrong turning into the neighbors drive. Soon, I realised that I was at the wrong delivery address. Because all that was there was a small wooden stable and a horse.

Consequently, I got out of the van. Soon, I was approached by a lady in her late fifties. To my surprise, she had lost her legs below her knees.As a result, she was walking on her knee stumps. The lady was stood up but only came up to my chest in height. My delivery van is covered with large pictures of mobility batteries for advertising. I noticed that the lady spotted this.

She asked me the price of batteries for her mobility scooter. Unfortunately, she said that she could not afford to buy any new batteries. As her present 12 Volt Battery was old and running down. For this reason, I felt very sad for lady.Hence, and continued to next door to deliver the car battery. Eileen is severely disabled after having both legs amputated.In a motorcycle accident. For this reason, her only means of getting about was on her mobility scooter. Which is battery powered. She does not have any prosthetic limbs for whatever reason. Eileen, relies totally on her mobility scooter. It was very strange to see her mount the scooter.Because she has developed a special knack for lifting herself up. Using, her now very strong arms.

Free gift mobility Batteries

The guy next door told me that Eileen could not afford to buy any new scooter batteries. Especially as how she was practically house bound. This pulled at my heartstrings. Therefore, being a good Christian i decided to give her two Free gift mobility Batteries. I returned to my stores in Halifax, Yorkshire UK and collected the two Free gift mobility Batteries to give to Eileen. I would have been choked to give her the  Free gift mobility Batteries direct and so i called into Eileen’s

neighbour who had bought the original battery.

The guy in and when i told him what i was doing he had a tear in his eye. I gave him the Free gift mobility Batteries, to give to Eileen, when i had gone back to Yorkshire. He telephoned me the next day to say that she could not believe what i had done for her, and she sent me a lovely Christmas card.

As an update to this Eileen is still going strong and looks after some horses for a good friend, she is still getting about on her mobility scooter and the Mobility scooter batteries, that i gave her are also  still going strong.

Mobility Scooter Batteries-Will Lithium-Ion batteries Replace Lead Acid Batteries

Mobility Scooter Batteries

New help for Mobilty Scooter batteries users

The advent of the “Lithium-Ion” battery will be a great relief to many users of the mobility vehicles. The 12 Volt Batteries that are

Mobility Scooter Batteries

Mobility Scooter Batteries may come out in Lithium-Ion shortly

traditionally used in this type of vehicle have always been a problem. Especially for the people that use these machines for getting about on. I would hate to think of the amount of these machines that have been caught out with a flat battery? Stuck half way on a journey and having to be rescued by a friend or relation.

Also, they have the problem of the weight of these batteries. Even the 12 volts 12 amp AGM Battery are hefty. Especially relevant, to injured or physically challenged person. The 18 amp and 26 amp are even very heavy to an able body person, so things have got to get better and for some mobility vehicle owners they just did.

From Mars landing to Mobility Scooter Batteries

One such use was presented to an American company.  Yardney Technical Products who were asked by NASA to design a new Mobility Scooter Battery. This had to be  much lighter and stronger than the

This micro -hybrid battery will be used on mobility scooters in the future

lead acid battery. This new type of battery was to be utilised for the new stealth aircraft and later for space exploration. Now the battery has been developed for more everyday uses such as mobility scooter batteries.

The lithium batteries that are now available as Mobility Scooter Batteries. Mobility users come in the form of a single 24 volt 10 amp lithium battery. This replaces two a Lucas LSLC 20-12 10- lead acid batteries. The single battery only weighs 2.4 kg compared with the pair of Lucas weighing in at 12 kg, very much lighter in weight. The battery also requires a special charger which is a 24 volt 3 amp including all the connectors. The big advantage of the new Mobility Scooter Batteries is that they will do 2000 cycles. Compared to 300 cycles for the Lucas lead acid battery, and although the initial cost is higher, you will be saving in weight and much more power in the long run.

For more information about the lithium-Ion battery.

“The Mobility Scooter Batteries works on ion movement. This is  between the positive and negative electrodes. In theory such a mechanism should work forever. Furthermore, cycling, elevated temperature and aging decrease the performance over time. Finally, batteries are used in demanding environmental conditions. In addition, battery manufacturers take a conservative approach and specify the life of most Li-ion between 300 and 500 discharge/charge cycles”… http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries

Lamping Batteries-New lighter Lithium-Batteries may be the answer.

Lamping Batteries

Much lighter to carry

lamping  batteries

It has always been a problem for the guys.Hence, that go out at night in the countryside looking for things to hunt. Usually vermin. This rural activity is often referred to as Lamping Rabbits. The general idea is to stalk the animal say a fox. Consequently, by using a lamp with a strong beam. So is pointed at the animal. Thus, the animal will then freeze in the bright light. The animal is then shot. For this reason, this is usually aimed at vermin. Such as foxes, rats and in some areas rabbits. Hence, that may have a population problem and the numbers need to be culled. The majority of lamping is carried

out by responsible country people, that respect nature and are just doing a job.

The lamp that they use is usually powered by a 7amp UPS battery, the type that is used in backup power systems, but these small lamping batteries are lead acid batteries and therefore start to become very heavy, especially in the dark when you are walking through undergrowth and in hilly woodland. Some lampers also carry a spare battery or two, so they tend to get very heavy.

 Lamping batteries

One of the great things to come to the market in recent times.Is the invention of the Lithium Ion Battery Pack. This was originally invented in America. For use on American military planes. Such as the Stealth bombers and more recently to supply batteries for the Space exploration projects for NASA.

This created a brand new battery technology that did not contain lead or lead acid. The new batteries became much lighter and more powerful, making the situation perfect for use as lamp batteries.

These lamping batteries come in two sizes the 6 ah and the 9ah these batteries are 12 volt batteries and the 9 amp lithium replaces the 18 amp UPS lead acid battery and the 6 amp replaces the 10 amp UPS lead acid battery. These batteries are much more powerful than there lead acid counterpart and are much lighter to carry around. The battery charger is also supplied and must be used with the lithium lamping batteries normal lead acid charger will not work with the lithium battery. The downside will be the initial cost , but the lithium battery comes with a two year manufacturers warranty and is more powerful and will last much longer with an added bonus of been very much lighter to carry, in my opinion the lead acid UPS battery will not have a look in compared with the new battery the lithium battery

 

Lamping Batteries

“They’re generally much lighter than other types of rechargeable batteries of the same size. The electrodes of a lithium-ion battery are made of lightweight lithium and carbon. Lithium is also a highly reactive element, meaning that a lot of energy can be stored in its atomic bonds. This translates into a very high energy density for

lamping batteries,Lithium-Ion Battery Technology

Lithium-Ion Battery Technology (Photo credit: toolstop)

lithium-ion batteries. Here is a way to get a perspective on the energy density. A typical lithium-ion battery can store 150 watt-hours of electricity in 1 kilogram of battery. A NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) battery pack can store perhaps 100 watt-hours per kilogram, although 60 to 70 watt-hours might be more typical. A lead-acid battery can store only 25 watt-hours per kilogram. Using lead-acid technology, it takes 6 kilograms to store the same amount of energy that a 1 kilogram lithium-ion battery can handle”... http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/everyday-tech/lithium-ion-battery.htm

UPS Batteries Have Many Uses-12 Volt 12 Amp are very popular

UPS Batteries Have Many Uses

UPS Batteries Have Many Uses; 12 volt 12 amp in most backup batteries supply systems ?

"<yoastmark

I would not be exaggerating to say that that the 12 volts 12 amp UPS  (uninterrupted power supply) battery will be found in most large offices around the World. The most common

 

usage for this one is as a backup supply source of power in the event of a mains power supply failure. When the mains go down then the 12 volts 12 amp battery bank kicks in and allows the computers to carry out a proper shutdown, saving very valuable data from being destroyed. The UPS battery will be used in very large banks of backup systems .

These UPS Batteries Have Many Uses including, backup systems will usually come within a surge circuitry and also have a built in filter this will protect the circuits and the computer from power surges, these surges are known as transients, spikes and surges and can destroy and even delete data as well as damaging the computer equipment. One of the commonest forms of power surges is lightening, even if an adjacent building is struck then a surge can occur and damage an unprotected computer system, but thanks to the 12 volts 12 amp battery then this will be protected.

For further reading…

“Even entry-level battery backups provide visual and audible alarms based on various states of alert. They also include automatic shutdown software that controls the connected microcomputer via USB port so that if the user happens to be away from the computer when the power fails, the system takes over and initiates safe shutdown procedures before they drain”… http://battery-backup-review.toptenreviews.com/what-exactly-is-a-computer-battery-backup-and-which-one-is-best-.html.

 12 volt 12 amp batteries also fit many mobility scooters

This 12 volts 12 amp is also now used to power some smaller mobility scooters. As a result, it takes 2 these 12 volts 12 amps to make a 24-volt system . UPS Batteries Have Many Uses and here is some very important information about the care of your 12 volts 12 amps when they are not in use and during the winter months from an excellent website called www.easymedonline.com…

 Always store your batteries FULLY CHARGED.

– Check all batteries once a month and recharge as needed.
– Wet ones can hold their charge up to 3 months.
– Sealed ones can hold a charge for up to 6 months.
– When storing a chair or scooter for more than 2 weeks, charge them and then disconnect them.
– Avoid hot and cold extremes when storing.

What is the proper way to store batteries for the Winter?

A: Store them fully charged. Check them once a month and recharge as needed. Sealed ones can hold their charge from 6 to 12 months. Remember, if storing your chair for longer than a couple of weeks, it’s best to charge them up  and then disconnect them”…http://www.easymedonline.com/more/batteries.html
