This is particularly true if you choose an older converted car, because a lead acid battery pack is commonly found in many conversion kits.
Compared to lithium ion battery backs, the older lead acid model usually offers fewer charge cycles and less energy density. It should be noted that a typical lead acid battery pack will start to degrade after undergoing more than 750 charge cycles.
