UNDERSTANDING A LITHIUM BATTERY CYCLE


Furlongs

Recommended Posts

Hallo all.

1. I need to know and understand what does a battery cycle ecxatly mean.

If a battery has 4000 cycle, how do I know I have exhausted a cycle. How long a cycle of a battery?

If my battery is a 25.6v, how do I know I spend a cycle on on it?

 

Suppose during loadshedding it reads 26.0v and load till 25.3v, is that a cycle. And it happens three times a day (loadshedding)

 

2. Lastly, how do I know (calculate) a DOD of the battery.

3. How long (years) based on above can a battery lasts?

Please help me, I am blank on this topic.

 

Your responses will be highly appreciated

DOD should be communicated by the manufacturer as its the lowest the battery can go without actively harming the cells over a period of time. For lithium it's usually 80-90%

A cycle is typically a discharge and charge of the battery to the minimums or to 100%. I say typically because different manufacturers calculate this differently. Micor discharge and charges that at up to a full discharge and charge count towards 1 cycle.... Typically
