Li-ion Battery and Technology

Li-ion Battery or LIBs are widely used nowadays and are the most promising devices for energy storage, which can potentially replace gasoline-powered cars and significantly reduce the pollution in cities in the near future. LIBs have many advantageous characteristics such as high efficiencies, high energy density, high power density and a long life cycle.

Lithium-Iron-Phosphate Battery Pack (LFP)

The Lithium Iron Phosphate battery (LiFePO4 – LFP) is a type of Lithium-ion battery. It is a rechargeable battery using LiFePO4 as the cathode material and a graphitic carbon electrode as the anode. 

The LFP operating voltage is low when compared to the other li-ion resulting in a lower energy density but the advantages of the LFP are high discharge rate, low cost, low toxicity, long life cycle, and high stability. It is widely used in electric vehicles and stationary backup power.

Features:

  • Longer Cycle Life

  • Superior Safety
  • No Memory Effect

Use Case: 

  • Electrical vehicles
  • Solar/wind energy storage system
  • UPS, backup power
  • Telecommunication
  • Medical equipment
  • Lighting
