Charging Loadshedding

Why are my batteries not lasting during loadshedding anymore?

The lifespan of batteries can be influenced by several factors that affect their performance and overall longevity. Let’s explore these factors in detail to understand why your batteries might not be lasting as long as they used to or should be: Depth of Discharge (DOD): One of the primary factors affecting battery lifespan is the depth to which they are discharged during each cycle. Deeper discharges, where a higher percentage of the battery’s capacity is used, can accelerate chemical reactions and wear on the battery plates, leading to a reduction…
