Why Reusing Lithium-ion, LiFePO4 and LiPo Batteries

Reusing or repurposing old batteries offers another route to their disposal and productivity. Many domestic electric appliances contain Lithium-ion and Lithium LiPo batteries which still have between 50 to 70 per cent of their capacity left, which more than enough for other uses.

At Batterino, we assemble primarely Lithium-ion battery packs using up to 70% rescued batteries coming from laptops and e-bike batteries, we also add BMS or battery management system to prolong their life. Once we receive second-hand batteries, we test them for State of health and the State of Charge before re-packaging them so that they can be used for e-bikes, portable energy packs and home energy storage.

Although the life cycle of batteries will depend on how you use it, temperatures, and many other factors, current Lithium-ion batteries have an average life time expectation of 2,000-4,000 cycles, compared to 400-1,500 cycles of lead-acid batteries.

I was looking for a spare battery pack to fit my mobility scooter, Frank and the team were very helpful in getting me the right 52v 8Ahm battery pack.
Highly recommended !

Neil Kiernan

I had to fit a battery in an awkward space on my ebike and Frank managed to deliver the right size and capacity for me.

Robert Woods

Thanks for the 24v 10Ah battery, it works perfectly and it fits my space perfectly.

Lithium Battery Pack FAQ

There are many substantial benefits that Lithium-Ion technology offers over lead-acid technology, this meant that Lithium-Ion batteries are becoming an ever more popular choice.
A typical lead-acid battery operates from 30 to 50%. This means, at most, only half of the total energy storage capacity is available for use. Lead-acid efficiencies vary drastically based on charge rate and temperature.

Li-ion batteries can handle charging 5 times their capacity, with the recommended being 0.5C. This means that on the same 500 Ampere battery, Li-Ion can handle a maximum 250 Ampere charging current. If you are thinking of upgrading or replacing your acid lead battery with lithium-based batteries please get in touch.

Our lab is in South London but we are looking to expand in the whole UK

Reusing is better than recycling because it saves the energy that comes with having to dismantle and re-manufacture products. It also significantly reduces waste and pollution because it reduces the need for raw materials, saving both forests and water supplies.

Smart BMS fitted on all our batteries

BMS protects the battery from operating outside its safe operating area. We use a wide range of Battery Management Systems for our lithium battery packs.

Our Smart BMS range from 24v 7s 30AMPs to 52ve of 100AMPs.
