Lithium Technology


The Lithium battery used by VDS can be used in various applications. For example, stationary in connection with an Efoy fuel cell, installed in a vehicle as on-board power for the mobile measuring device, or in our battery box for tripod operation.

Switching to lithium technology offers you added value with little effort. This value is particularly evident in the higher energy storage capacity and the longer service life enabled by lithium technology. Further advantages are faster charging and up to three times more frequent deep discharge (up to 80%), without harmful consequences, as compared with lead-acid batteries.


  • 50% weight saving
  • 3x longer service life compared to lead-acid batteries
  • Full charge in less than 3 hours, partial charge possible
  • Reliable operation thanks to the battery management system
  • Currently the safest lithium-ion chemistry available
