Garden battery technology
Cordless technology is the most modern and professional tools. It began its intensive development and became widespread since 1991, when they invented a lithium-ion battery, which is much more compact than the batteries of previous generations and weighs 3.5 times less, but is not inferior to them in terms of technical characteristics: capacity, starting current. The number of charge-discharge cycles of the battery is about 1500, which extends its service life up to 5 years. Li-ion batteries are universal: the same battery can be used to power various types of garden equipment, such as:
- chain saws;
- lawn mowers;
- hedge trimmer shears.
In addition, all battery technology can operate in almost any weather conditions. Modern power tools can withstand temperatures down to -12 ° C.
The advantages of battery technology
For example, compare a saw with a gasoline engine and a saw that runs on a battery. The technical capabilities of modern batteries create the same torque as when using a gasoline engine with a capacity of 1.5 kilowatts. At the same time, the gasoline engine builds up its power gradually, which means that the tool needs time to “warm up”. Battery technology does not need this, it starts with one button.
In addition, cordless tools have an energy-saving function to extend their operating time. The battery holds a charge for approximately 2-4 hours. For longer work, there are so-called backpack batteries. Their weight is 6.5 kg, their capacity is 15-30 Ah. By connecting any instrument to them, you can extend the time of its use up to 8-12 hours of continuous operation. Battery pack systems have a charge level indicator.
The battery must not be completely discharged. If you do not use the tool for a long time, then it is necessary to make regular recharging of the battery, otherwise it will fail. Try to keep the charge level 35% -50%.
Gasoline powered tools need regular care and maintenance, fuel and oil costs. There are no parts subject to intense wear in the battery. The savings when using such tools are 18% -25%.
In conclusion, we can say that battery technology is universal, environmentally friendly, economical, has a long service life..
