Several Advantages of Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery (LiFePO4)

1. Improvement of safety performance
The P-O bond in lithium iron phosphate crystals is very stable, difficult to decompose, even at high temperatures or when overcharged, will not like lithium cobaltate (LiCoO2) - the structure will not collapse, heat up or form strong oxidizing substances , therefore has a good security.

2. Lifetime improvement
Lithium iron phosphate battery is a lithium-ion battery using lithium iron phosphate as the cathode material.
Long-life lead-acid batteries have a cycle life of about 300 times, up to 500 times, while lithium iron phosphate battery, cycle life of more than 2000 times. The same quality of lead-acid batteries is "new half year, old half year, maintenance is another half year" at most 1~1.5 years.
And lithium iron phosphate batteries used under the same conditions, the theoretical life will reach 7 to 8 years. Some lithium iron phosphate batteries even reach a life of more than 10 years.

3. High temperature performance
Lithium iron phosphate with high temperature resistance characteristics of the peak electrical heat up to 350 ℃ -500 ℃.
While lithium manganate and lithium cobaltate only at about 200 ℃.
But at the same time, the low temperature performance is relatively poor, and the lower the temperature, the worse the discharge and charging efficiency.

4. Large capacity
Larger capacity than ordinary batteries (lead-acid, etc.). 5AH-1000AH (single cell).

5. No memory effect
Rechargeable batteries often work under the state that they are fully charged and not fully discharged, capacity will quickly fall below the rated capacity value, a phenomenon called the memory effect.
Like NiMH and NiCd batteries have memory, and lithium iron phosphate batteries do not have this phenomenon, no matter what state the battery is in, it can be used as it is charged without having to run out first and then charged.

6. Light weight
The volume of a lithium iron phosphate battery with the same capacity is 2/3 of that of a lead-acid battery, the weight is 1/3 of the lead-acid battery.

7. Environmental friendly
The Lithium iron phosphate (Lifepo4) battery is generally considered to be free of any heavy metals and rare metals (Ni-MH batteries require rare metals), non-toxic (SGS certification), non-polluting, in line with European RoHS regulations, and an absolute green battery certificate. Therefore, the reason why lithium batteries are favored by the industry is mainly due to environmental protection considerations.
