4 Reasons for Upgrading to Smart Lithium Ion UPS Technology

With the development of information technologies, such as virtualization, IT infrastructure within data centers and other industrial facilities is transforming rapidly.

Any power outage or surge affecting mission-critical equipment can upset business continuity and productivity, so your Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system should be matched to the scale and requirements of your IT setup.

The latest lithium ion UPS technology offered by N1 Critical Technologies ( is designed to offer sophisticated and robust power protection for the most demanding IT loads.

Here are the reasons to upgrade your existing UPS system to this advanced technology.

  1. It Has an Efficient Design and Small Size:

Our smart UPS models (offered in 1kVA, 2kVA, 2.2kVA, 3kVA, 5kVA, 6kVA 10kVA sizes), powered by lithium-ion batteries, are designed to increase energy efficiency and save more space in data centers and industrial facilities. The “Eco” mode use the least amount of power necessary to keep the connected load operational. This offers more energy savings on utility costs when compared to older systems using lead acid batteries. Users can monitor the power usage on the convenient LCD display.

At the same time, lithium-ion batteries have a smaller size and lighter weight to reduce their footprint, optimizing the available space and ensure business continuity without power disruptions. Some companies have even used the extra space savings for more offices for revenue-producing staff.

  1. It Has an Advanced Battery Management System:

The smart UPS designs are easy to use due to their inbuilt BMS or battery management system. You can configure the unit through its accompanying software. The display is intuitive for easy viewing and analysis of data information. This feature helps in monitoring the performance of the lithium-ion UPS battery from any place at any time. Use the data to assess the battery conditions and anticipated lifespan to plan for repair and maintenance routines. This saves on system downtimes in your facility and ensures higher productivity.

  1. It Requires Lesser Maintenance:

Lithium-ion batteries are more maintenance free than the antiquated VRLA batteries. Instead of preventative maintenance done every six month to ensure reliability, our products require preventative maintenance only once a year or two. We also have an expected battery lifespan that can exceed 10 to 15 years, and our 10-year battery warranty is unmatched. N1C UPS systems also have battery monitors on each unit to sense temperature fluctuations and other factors that affect the battery’s life. This all reduces the cost and burden of frequent battery maintenance, giving you time to spend on other critical projects.

  1. It Offers More Energy Density:

In comparison with other battery systems, lithium-ion technology provides more power and energy density for UPS units. They are smaller and allow flexible placement within the data center or commercial establishments. Also, the high energy density of lithium-ion batteries ensures faster recharging speed and more efficiency in the energy storage. Take our UPS system offline and it retains its charge. When they remain online,  our systems offer continuity of operations without frequent recharge cycles.


All these reasons prove the effectiveness of smart lithium-ion battery-based UPS devices for the modern businesses. Choose the right system, and consult with one of our experts to build a system that meets your needs and makes the most of your investment.
