genasun charge controller for lithium-ion batteries

Typically when people have a battery based solar electric systems they are composed of deep cycle lead acid batteries. Although lead acid battery technology is not the newest type of battery on the market, there are more advanced batteries called Lithium-ion batteries, which are typically found in our consumer electronics, such as cell phones, ipods, digital cameras..etc.

Lithium-ion batteries have the best energy-to-weight ratio, so they’re significantly lighter then lead acid batteries. Another great feature of lithium-ion batteries is that they have no memory effect, means they won’t hold less charge as the battery gets older. Compared to lead acid batteries, Lithium-ions have a slow discharge rate when not in use.

More people are now using lithium-ion batteries with their solar electric systems, thanks to Genasun who recently released the GV-4-Li charge controller which is a maximum power point tracking controller that is optimized for use with lithium-ion batteries. Do you think people will finally be ditching old lead acid battery technology for lithium-ion batteries?
