The ideal battery for your electric vehicle

Alke' has three different types of battery for its electric vehicles: lead acid, lead gel, lithium-ion.

Depending on the needs and how you want to use your electric vehicle, Alke can provide three different types of battery: lead acid, lead gel or lithium-ion. Each type of technology has its own advantages, but it's important to choose the one most suitable for the specific use you will be putting it to, in order to obtain the maximum benefit. Let's take a look at the main characteristics of the three different batteries.

Excellent autonomy

This type of battery almost doubles the autonomy of an electric vehicle.

Long lifespan

These batteries offer approximately 2000 cycles, which means they last longer than the other types.

Quick recharging

They can be 100% recharged in 1.5h hours (80% in 1 hour), and partial recharging is also possible so they're ideal when the vehicle is used 24 hours a day.

Increased load capacity

They're much lighter than the equivalent batteries that use other types of technology, so the vehicle has a greater effective capacity - a fact that can make a significant difference, especially when the vehicle is used off-road (where there are no type-approval regulations concerning weights).

Main areas of use

A wide variety of fields of use because, apart from covering the gel needs (maintenance-free), they offer certain additional features as well. If you want increased autonomy and first class performance, that's the right choice. The only limit may be their higher cost.

Winter pre-heating function

In the case of vehicles fitted with a lithium battery, the battery area has a winter pre-heating function so work can be carried out even in places with harsh sub-zero temperatures.

The maximum autonomy figure is approximate, and was obtained on a flat surface, in optimum usage conditions, with ECO mode and energy saver and adopting a correct driving manner, at a speed no higher than 60% of the maximum speed, for non-continuous use (battery dead in 5 hours).

Yes

 
Limited cost

Among all the various types of battery, the lead acid ones are the least expensive. This type of battery is used in particular in professional contexts where the speed of the vehicle is not a priority.

Versatile

Lead acid batteries can be used in various sectors and with different types of vehicle use, as they don't need any special attention. They're ideal, for example, in campsites, holiday villages and other kinds of general use.

Long lifespan

Alke' offers professional batteries with 1200 cycles, so their average lifespan is very high in relation to their price.

Main areas of use

If you want an extremely flexible, professional battery at a reasonable price. In 80% of cases, they're used in a variety of situations like holiday villages, industrial plants, etc. (except closed places with a high number of visitors).

Completely sealed

This feature may be preferable or necessary in certain contexts where you need to be sure there are no liquid leakages.

Maintenance free

This type of battery doesn't need to be topped up with water, but it's more sensitive than the others when it comes to respecting the recharging times.

Can be used in closed places

These batteries are usually chosen by those who use their vehicle only - or almost only - in closed places.

Main areas of use

If you want a maintenance-free battery, or you need one that's completely sealed: hospitals, airport terminals, museums, etc.
