Lower Total Cost of Ownership

The life expectancy of Lithium-Ion batteries is up to 3 times longer than traditional CRLA batteries. That works out to be up to 50% in TCO savings due to the reduced battery replacements needed over its lifespan. These savings include the cost of the batteries but also the time and labour costs to replace them. The cost of labour is especially significant for those in remote locations or with little to no IT personnel onsite.

The GXT5 Lithium-Ion is truly a set-it-and-forget-it, low-maintenance solution.

Battery Feature VRLA Battery Lithium-Ion Battery Lithium-Ion Benefit
Standard Battery Life 3-5 years 8-10 years Up to 3 times longer life
Typical Cycle Life 200-260 2000 Up to 10x more discharge/recharge cycles
Battery recharge time 3-6 hours <2 hours Fast recovery time safeguards your critical IT equipment in the event of multiple outages
Battery weight 10.9 kg 5.9 kg 45% lighter making it ideal for small spaces and wall-mount racks


Environmentally Friendly

Featured under Vertiv’s sustainability spotlight, the GXT5 Lithium-Ion is an environmentally conscious choice.

  • Lithium-Ion batteries require less onsite low maintenance which reduces truck rolls and the associated carbon emissions
  • Lithium-ion batteries have a longer life which reduces waste and material consumption
  • Lithium-Ion batteries use less material for equal output further saving on material consumption
  • 99% of the battery elements are recyclable
