What is the service life of a VRLA battery?

Date:Jul 03, 2020

A VRLA battery’s service life mostly depend on the design, working temperature, sufficient charging after each discharge and regular re-charging. For example, electric bike battery 6-DZM-20, it may reach 600 cycles @ 80% if the battery is proper charged and the working temperature is at 25 Degree C, but in actual working condition, the cycle life may not reach 600 cycles due to the variable conditions, i.e. high temperature, insufficient charging, etc.
