Operating costs comparison

The total operating costs of Umka battery are about 50% lower than that of a lead-acid battery.

  • Umka is maintenance-free and doesn't emit gases: no special charging room is needed;
  • Low internal resistance: high energy efficiency and much lower daily electricity costs;
  • No need to dismount the battery for charging: saves working time and additional equipment;
  • Umka performs the same with capacity much lower than the capacity of a required lead-acid battery: reduced initial costs;
  • Outperforming high number of charge cycles: lowest total cost of ownership;
  • Combine lower battery capacity with ultra-fast charging feature for immediate payback.
