A traction battery is, so to speak, the fuel tank of an electrically powered vehicle. But a battery is subject to an aging process, which makes it necessary to replace the battery at some point. The reasons for replacement can be a battery defect or not being able to operate it reliably anymore. But it can also be a good idea from the business management standpoint to replace a battery. Namely, when the power used in charging far exceeds the power the battery provides. Some users are familiar with the situation: a forklift or a low-lift truck can run only a short time on a battery charge. Some customers say that is OK for what they want, but they are overlooking the fact that the efficiency ratio between charging and discharging is very poor, thus multiplying their cost of electricity. Sometimes the cost of a new battery is amortised faster than one may think.
