Top 5 Reasons to Level Up With Vertiv™ Lithium-Ion UPS

by Katy Plant on June 5, 2023

VRLA batteries - Don't you just love to recycle them? Sometimes, on a lucky day, you get to take a trip to the store - an adventure! - to pick up more. As great as that is, can't we all envision a future where batteries are at least slightly easier to deal with?

As it turns out, our manufacturing partner Vertiv can, which is why they are incentivizing data center operators and Enterprise IT managers to level up with lithium-ion UPS systems: Not only to appease the repetitive hardware store adventures, but to promote a better, more sustainable business strategy in general. A win for business and a win for the environment.

Lithium-ion batteries are a more sustainable business strategy, you say? If you're over there wondering the 'how's and 'why's about lithium-ion being the next big break, don't worry. To help readers understand its full range of benefits, Vertiv has listed the Top 5 Reasons to Upgrade to Lithium-Ion:

1. Longer Lifespan 
You have to admit that sweet, sweet battery life is hard to turn down. One of the biggest reasons Vertiv recommends switching to lithium-ion batteries is that they last up to 8 to 10 years. Compared to VRLA, that's a lifetime and a half. Game changer. Not only is the extra battery life more convenient, but it eliminates the need for constant replacements, and prevents downtime, too.

2. More Resilient to High Temperatures

It's feeling hot, hot, hot. Because lithium-ion batteries have a high resiliency to heat compared to VRLA, they perform better in UPS environments, where there tends to be a lack of dedicated cooling. In general, this makes lithium-ion batteries more stable, and the perfect high temperature solution.

3. Higher Power Density

More power, less space, higher power density. It's that simple. Lithium-ion batteries make UPS systems more compact because they take up much less space than VRLA, while pumping even more power.

4. Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Every time VRLA batteries need to be replaced, there is room for downtime, expenses, revenue loss, and poor customer service. Repetitive battery replacements therefore raise the total cost of ownership, and can be mitigated by switching to newer lithium-ion battery technology that prevents downtime.

5. More Sustainable 

Because lithium-ion batteries last longer and require less to no on-site maintenance, Data Centers, Enterprises, and Edge environments can reduce their waste, material consumption, truck rolls, and carbon emissions by switching to lithium-ion UPS systems.

Vertiv™ Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion UPS 1000 - 3000 VA, 120V Image #18

This past February, Vertiv introduced the Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion double-conversion, on-line uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system for 5kVA-10kVA 120V/208V applications. With this product's list of accommodating features and mark of sustainability, it would be a shame to not feature it as the cherry on top.

Vertiv UPS Trade-In Program

With the Vertiv Trade-In program, owners can upgrade their existing UPS with Vertiv state-of-the-art Lithium-Ion UPS systems, including the new Vertiv Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion UPS. There's officially no excuse to continue on as if things are the way they were. To determine if your data center is a good candidate to upgrade to a new Vertiv UPS system, consider these questions first:
  • Is your rack-mounted UPS fleet more than five years old?
  • Are you planning on expanding, reducing, or replacing your rackmount UPS fleet?
  • Is the operating efficiency of older systems causing your utility bills to be a drag on your budget?
  • Are battery modules and cabinets becoming less available?
  • Are you frequently servicing your old units?
  • Do you require a certificate of recycling or destruction based on your state or local laws?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, you may able to benefit from one of these powerful new UPS technologies.
