Which Battery is Best for All Terrain / Powersport Electric Vehicles?
All Terrain and Powersport EV batteries will be deeply cycled (80% Depth of Discharge - DoD) regularly and often operated in a Partial State of Charge (PSOC) situation. The batteries will need high power capability to support the surge current demanded by the electric traction motors. If the battery has a Battery Management System (BMS), it will also need to tolerate the energy spike back fed when a motor is stopped. Batteries for All Terrain EVs should be compact, lightweight, fully sealed and accepted frequent short ‘top up’ charges without degradation in long-term performance. Lithium batteries should integrate with the on-board charger. Batteries must tolerate shocks, vibration, outdoor temperatures, dirt and moisture.
