Choose the Best Secondary Power Source for your UPS Systems

Voltage fluctuation has become a ubiquitous problem nowadays, that affects electronics equipment. Unsatability in voltage often leads to damages and also minimizes the lifetime of the electrical devices. Sudden power outages or unstable voltage problems can impact someone’s career by crashing the whole system including important data. Being complex in design, there is a possibility of corruption in the computer’s operating system, without following the proper way to a safe shutdown.  
Above mentioned problems are not solitary, the main difficulty arises when it comes to data centers, hospitals, etc. So with the up growing demand for technology problems also arrive. But with the arrival of problems, solutions also occur. Here appears the savior of the situation, UPS, which provides extra time to the equipment for a safe shutdown. UPS uses several batteries that take over after detecting a loss or reduction in the primary power source. So basically UPS battery works as a secondary power source by allowing the UPS system to provide protection and power back up against power problems like power outtakes, brownouts, spikes, voltage fluctuations, etc.  
The function of UPS Battery

UPS is a component that instantly responses to sudden power failure by providing a stable and uninterruptible power supply to the load. A UPS system generally depends on some stockpiled energy technology to accept energy throughout the mains supply operation, A UPS battery ensures the reliability of the attached equipment by covering the space between backup power and power failure during a power cut.  
Mainly three types of batteries are used in a UPS system.
· Lead-Acid UPS batteries– Historically, it is proven that Lead-acid UPS batteries are reliable when it comes to providing backup power to an uninterruptible power supply, connected to critical pieces of equipment. Lower cost (as compared to others) and high tolerance means lower battery management requirements are the foremost reasons for its demand. 
· Nickel-Cadmium UPS batteries- Nickel-Cadmium UPS battery electrodes are consist of nickel hydroxide and cadmium hydroxide. NiCD (Nickel-Cadmium) mainly used to be popular for telecom installations and is still being used in places with high temperatures.  

· Lithium-ION UPS batteries- A rechargeable battery with beneficial technology providing power protection, especially in data centers and IT applications. 
In this blog, we will discuss SLA and Lithium-Ion batteries for UPS systems and the benefits of both of the batteries will be discussed.
Description and Benefits of SLA batteries.

SLA battery, the acronym of sealed lead-acid, also known as VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead-Acid) battery, has become the most common one used in UPS systems. Usually, SLA batteries come inside a sealed case with a valve. In case of redundant internal pressure, the valve is designed to release the gas. Being safer and environment friendly than open-vented batteries, the demand for SLA batteries is increasing day by day. 
With completely developed armature, VRLA batteries are almost 98% recyclable. User maintenance is the basic responsibility of the product user. With VRLA batteries the user maintenance requirement is zero. In comparison with flooded lead-acid batteries, VRLA batteries offer some key advantages with their steady replacement facility. One more fringe benefit VRLA gel batteries provide, that is these batteries can be mounted in any position, which minimizes installation costs and space requirements.
Lithium-Ion UPS and Benefits

Lithium-Ion UPS batteries are different from lead-acid batteries with their rechargeable facility. This advanced battery technology is charged and discharged by lithium ions, which move between positive and negative electrodes through electrolytes. 
Before picking up a battery for UPS it is extremely necessary to go for the right one. And the benefits often help us to select the best one for our UPS. 
Lithium-Ion batteries offer a long-lasting battery life to UPS with their amazing lifespan of 9 to 10 years, which is similar to the lifetime of a UPS system. That leads to less maintenance cost also reduce the total cost of ownership. Though VRLA batteries are good for UPS still Lithium-Ion UPS battery offers more flexibility. These batteries are 40% to 60% lighter and at least 70% smaller than VRLA batteries, which provide almost the same or more power with less requirement of place. 
The main quality, a UPS battery should have, is the ability to combat high temperatures. Precisely Lithium-Ion batteries have the potential to resist high temperatures and they are worthy to use in strident industrial environments. Lower recharge time makes it more beneficial for the user. A Lithium-Ion UPS battery takes at most 2 to 4 hours to be charged from 0 to 90%.
