Properly Identifying Electric Vehicle Batteries
An important step when recycling your batteries is identifying them. Misidentification of batteries during recycling can lead to dangerous shipping and recycling incidents.
Electric vehicle (EV) batteries, also known as traction batteries, are rechargeable batteries that serve the purpose of providing power to electric vehicles. They are commonly used in equipment such as electric vehicles, forklifts, electric golf carts, electric motorcycles, trucks, and other electric vehicles.
Unlike SLI batteries, traction batteries are meant to provide consistent amounts of power over longer periods of time. These batteries are able to do this due to their high power-to-weight ratio and energy-to-weight ratio. There are many different rechargeable batteries used in electric vehicles, including lead-acid batteries, NiCad batteries, and lithium-ion batteries.
If you’re still unsure whether or not you have an electric vehicle battery, feel free to send us the model number or manufacturer and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.
How Long Do Electric Vehicle Batteries Last?
All batteries start off by releasing electrons from one end of the battery, the anode, to the other end, which is called the cathode. For regular batteries, this process can only happen once, and then the battery is no longer useful.
Electric vehicle batteries solve this issue and improve lifespan by reversing the process. The ions will move back from the cathode to the anode, thereby returning the battery’s charge to its normal state. But as time goes on, these rechargeable batteries will begin to lose some of their charge due to age and damage. Electric vehicle batteries typically last for about 10 years.
When the time comes where your traction battery is no longer useful, contact the Battery Recyclers of America to ensure that the materials in the battery can be of further use. By doing so, you are cutting the costs for building new batteries, and contributing to a healthier environment.
