A drop in replacement to simply replace your traditional 12V Lead Acid gate motor battery to the latest Lithium Iron Phosphate technology - with all the added benefits:
Lasts 10 X longer (lifespan) than traditional lead acid batteries.
Reduced costs as the integrated BMS (Battery Management System) protects the battery from being run down completely and BREAKING during extended loadshedding. No call out fees.
Less Frustration - less calls from angry wives / students who cannot get into/out of properties
Better sleep - Less beeping of alarm systems and electric fences in the middle of the night, when you are sleeping.
Simply replace your old battery with this new one - works on most ET Nice, Century, Paradox & Electric Fence systems.
12v 7Ah sealed lead-acid (SLA) batteries are typically installed in small electronics that require backup power, like alarm systems and gate motors, but they are not ideal for regularly handling high current, and being discharged often or discharged too low. Thus when they are frequently drained (like during load shedding), they are easily damaged, and you will find that you need to replace them quite often.
Lithium iron phosphate batteries on the other hand have high cycle rates (2000 to 4000 cycles, versus 200 to 400 cycles of an SLA battery), they can handle higher current, and the internal battery management system protects them from overcharging or discharging too low.
That simply means this lithium battery replacement should last 10 times longer than the typical SLA battery it is replacing.
Other advantages are that there are no fumes, the self-discharge rate is only 3% per month (SLA will drain itself dead in 12 months), the batteries weight 800g vs the 2kg average weight of a 12v 7Ah SLA battery, and they can be charged and discharged faster (at higher current).
This battery can directly replace a sealed lead acid 12v 7Ah battery (same size, same charging voltages) and is an upgrade in terms of how many cycles the battery can do (how many times can be used before it needs replacing).
Please note that while this is technically a 12v 6Ah battery, and not a 12v 7Ah battery (at a C10 discharge rate), it performs like a 12v 7Ah lead acid battery in most applications since it is able to consistently deliver its full available capacity, whereas the lead acid 12v 7Ah battery will degrade rapidly in capacity as it ages, or when under high load.
TIP : To calculate how long this battery can last in your application, lookup the load power of the device it will be powering in Watts, then divide 75W with that number. Example, a 12v alarm system drawing 1A load, has a 12W load typically, so it can run from this battery for 6hrs 15min (75 / 12 = 6.25).
