|LiFePO4 Batteries from EEMB - the Best Solution for Next-Generation Telecommunication Base Stations |
Nowadays, most Telecom base station back-up power systems rely on Valve Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) batteries, which are costly to maintain and doomed to be replaced every 3 years. VRLA batteries are also typically heavy, bulky, and are prone to high self-discharge. Coping with an ever-growing telecom network, it brings more challenges to backup power solutions, especially in places where the electrical grid is unreliable. There has never been a greater need for reliable and high energy density batteries to meet the high expectations of the telecommunications industry.
