Which is better, graphene battery or lead-acid battery?

Commodity prices are on track for their biggest rally in more than a century, while fixed-income assets have seen their longest run of outflows as the war in Ukraine adds to inflationary pressures in the global economy emerging from the coronavirus lockdown, according to Bank of America.

"Commodity prices this year are on track to record their biggest gains since 1915." the bank said in its weekly briefing. They cite many factors, such as pandemics, lockdown, civil strife, wars, excessive monetary and fiscal stimulus, and supply chain disruptions, that have led to "historically" high inflation.  

By the same token, it said government bonds were heading for their worst year since 1949, and "negative-yielding bonds will quietly disappear" from the market as central banks embark on a monetary tightening cycle and raise interest rates to tame soaring inflation.  

The prices of many commodities like the graphene battery are expected to increase in the future.

A lead-acid battery (VRLA) is a battery whose electrodes are mainly made of lead and oxides, and the electrolyte is a sulfuric acid solution. In the discharge state of the lead-acid battery, the main component of the positive electrode is lead dioxide. The main component of the negative electrode is lead; in the charged state, the main component of the positive and negative electrodes is lead sulfate.

Which is better, graphene battery or lead-acid battery?

To know whether it is better to use a graphene battery or a lead-acid battery, we need to compare the performance of the two so that we can understand the advantages and disadvantages of the two batteries. Next, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of graphene batteries and lead-acid batteries. Compare price, service life, safety, battery life, and charging time to find the best battery for our use.

Price comparison

We said earlier that graphene batteries are an enhanced version of lead-acid batteries. Compared with lead-acid batteries, its lead plate is thicker, and graphene technology is added, which will make the price of graphene higher than that of lead-acid batteries. The price of acid batteries is slightly higher, but the price gap between the two is getting smaller and smaller. At present, the price of graphene batteries is slightly higher than that of lead-acid batteries by 10~20%.

Service life comparison

Since the graphene battery is an enhanced version of the lead-acid battery, the weaknesses of the lead-acid battery will be strengthened. The service life of the lead-acid battery is generally about 300 times of charge and discharge, while the number of times of charge and discharge of the graphene battery reaches about 500 times, which is much more used than the lead-acid battery. Of course, this is also related to the car owner's maintenance method and usage habits, but in theory, the life of the graphene battery is longer than that of the lead-acid battery.


Safety comparison

The production process and materials used for graphene and lead-acid batteries are the same. Graphene batteries only increase the thickness of the front plate and add graphene elements with better conductivity, so the comparison between the two in terms of safety. It is not apparent, and it can be said that the security performance of the two is the same.

Comparison of cruising range

Compared with the new lead-acid battery and the graphene battery, the cruising range of the two is similar. Still, as the use time increases, the graphene battery has a thicker lead plate, so its attenuation degree is smaller than that of the lead-acid battery. For example, if the battery is switched after one year, it only has 50~60% of the original capacity, while the graphene battery can reach 90% of the original capacity. With the prolongation of use time, the contrast will become more apparent.

Comparison of charging time

Since the graphene battery is added with a more conductive graphene element, and the graphene battery is also equipped with a special charger, the graphene battery can be charged faster, and it can be fully charged in about 5 hours, while our ordinary lead-acid battery It takes about 8 hours or so to fill up.

Although graphene batteries are just an enhanced version of lead-acid batteries and do not use accurate graphene technology, graphene batteries are superior to ordinary lead-acid batteries in terms of service life, mileage, and charging time, especially with The price gap between graphene batteries and lead-acid batteries is getting smaller and smaller. For car owners, it is pretty cost-effective to choose graphene batteries.

Europe has been facing the gas shortage problem since the second half of 2021. The worsening situation in Russia and Ukraine has reduced Russian gas shipments to Europe, leading to a doubling of European gas prices. Energy shortages have sent electricity prices soaring. For these reasons, it is predicted that the price of the graphene battery will continue to increase.
