What Is The Lifespan Of A Portable Power Station?
What are Battery Cycles?
The battery cycle is during which the battery is fully charged and discharged. However, the times of the cycle are limited due to many effects. Therefore, the lifespan of a battery is determined by how many times it can run the cycle so that you can estimate the lifespan of a portable power station through its battery cycle maximum.
It would help if you recognized that charging cycle and charging times are two different concepts. The charging cycle is defined as the number of times that only refers to the process by which the portable power station is charged from zero to full. A charging cycle means that the portable power station is used from full to zero and then is stuffed from empty to full, which is not the same as charging once.
For example, you only use half of its charge on the first day and then charge it fully again. Subsequently, you utilize half of the electric quantity and recharge it again. The portable power station is charged twice, but it only equals one charging circle.
How do Different Types of Batteries affect the Number of Circles?
Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery (LFP):
It is a lithium-ion battery with lithium iron phosphate as the cathode material. It possesses moderate working voltage, high capacity per unit weight, and high discharge power rate, which allow it to be charged promptly and have a long lifespan. In addition, it can work stably in extreme conditions, such as a heated environment.
Ternary Polymer Lithium Battery:
Ternary polymer lithium battery refers to the lithium battery whose cathode material uses lithium nickel cobalt manganate ternary cathode material or lithium nickel cobalt aluminate ternary cathode material, so this battery is also referred to as NCM battery (lithium nickel cobalt manganate) or NCA battery (lithium nickel cobalt aluminate), whose ternary refers to nickel (Ni), cobalt (Co), manganese (Mn) or aluminum (Au) in the cathode.
Nowadays, according to experimental statistics, the LFP can work more than 3500 times, some of which can be up to 5000 times. In comparison, the Ternary Polymer Lithium Battery can work 2500 times. Therefore, the LFP tends to be more durable and has a longer lifespan than the former and the latter. Furthermore, regarding the residual capacity, the LFP contains more capacity than the Ternary Polymer Lithium Battery when in the same conditions. For instance, the Ternary Polymer Lithium Battery remains 66% room after working 3900 times, while there is 84% capacity left after the LFP has run 5000 times.
Vigorpool Captain 1200 and Lake 300
Vigorpool’s portable power stations are representative of LFP batteries. There are more advantages that the Vigorpool portable power station can bring.
1. A Longer Lifespan
All the Vigorpool portable power stations are equipped with LFP, giving the products a long-lasting range and longer lifespan. No matter whether Captain 1200 or Lake 300, they are durable and can be used for a long time. You don’t need to consider buying a new one in a short time.
2. UPS Function
The full name of UPS is Uninterruptible Power Supply, which ensures that the devices can keep running when incoming power is severed. The portable power stations of Vigorpool have the most advanced UPS function that provides you and your family with a steady power supply. You don’t need to worry about a sudden power outage that can damage the devices because the UPS functions will maintain the power supply to appliances in less than 10ms.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Captain 1200 and Lake 300 are also solar generators. If you combine them with solar panels, they will produce enough electricity for your household use. That will benefit the environment because solar generators don’t use fossil fuels to yield energy and won’t emit any polluted gases into the air. Even if you don’t use them as solar generators, you will observe that they are quiet when working. That will provide you and your neighbor with a tranquil environment, which is also conducive to the environment.
4. Compact and Portable
Captain 1200 and Lake 300 are portable power stations that allow you to carry them for a trip or camping. They are both small in size and only take up a little space. Imagine they offer unlimited power when you take families or friends out for a hike or camp; they will undoubtedly juice up the whole journey.
Vigorpool has been adhering to the development philosophy of providing people with a better sustainable life. Captain 1200 and Lake 300 are the representative product that Vigorpool try to express the effort of their ultimate goal.
