Effects of atmospheric conditions on gel and lithium ion batteries

Petra Energia/Blog/News/Effects of atmospheric conditions on gel and lithium ion batteries

Weather conditions can affect the performance of both gel and lithium-ion batteries. Here are some aspects to consider:

  1. Temperature: temperature is one of the most important factors affecting battery performance. Both gel and lithium-ion batteries work best within a certain temperature range. Low temperatures reduce their real capacitance and increase their internal resistance. Also, the process of charging batteries is slower at low temperatures, some batteries (Lithium Ion) cannot be charged at temperatures below zero.

High temperatures can accelerate the aging process of batteries and shorten their life. That’s why it’s important to monitor and maintain appropriate operating temperatures for batteries.

For the above reasons, it is more advantageous to mount batteries underground (in airtight enclosures) where temperature fluctuations are much smaller

  1. Humidity and condensation: high humidity and the presence of condensation can lead to corrosion and damage to batteries. It is recommended that batteries be protected from excessive moisture and exposed to condensing water vapor.
  2. Exposure to the sun: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can affect the temperature of batteries, which can adversely affect their performance and service life. For lithium-ion batteries, the effects of high temperatures can be particularly damaging. It is advisable to protect the batteries from direct sunlight.
  3. Extreme weather conditions: Extreme weather conditions, such as thunderstorms, hailstorms or floods, can cause damage to batteries through flooding, electrical surges or mechanical damage. In such situations, it is important that the batteries are properly secured and protected.

It is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for battery operating conditions, such as operating temperatures, humidity and other environmental factors. Taking care of the right weather conditions can help maintain the performance and life of gel and lithium-ion batteries.
