• Eaton lithium-ion batteries

    Lithium-ion batteries last longer and recharge faster, saving time and money and reducing risk throughout the lifecycle of the uninterruptible power systems (UPS). While valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries have long been the industry choice for UPSs, new lithium-ion batteries offer these additional benefits while still meeting required backup runtime and are a safe and stable alternative battery option for UPS applications. Transform your power infrastructure with lithium-ion batteries.
