The reasons people choose lithium iron phosphate batteries

Advantages of Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery

Stability & Safety
LiFePO4 battery is known for its excellent thermal and chemical stability, making it more reliable and safer than other lithium batteries. It is less prone to thermal runaway or explosion even at high temperatures, which means you don’t have to worry about it exploding or catching fire from misuse or structural damage.

Long Cycle Life
LiFePO4 battery provides longer cycle life, which is usually between 2,000 and 6,000, depending on different brands. And qualified LiFePO4 cells could remain 80% DoD after 2000 cycles of charging and discharging. Plus, LFP batteries have a low self-discharge rate of 3-5% per month, so they can be left in a discharged state for months or over a year without running out of juice or damaging the battery.

High Efficiency
Higher energy efficiency can be of vital importance in off-grid energy storage devices such as solar and wind. The LFP batteries have excellent operation efficiency because of their fast charging and discharging rate capability. According to the reports, the LiFePO4 battery’s round-trip energy efficiency (discharge from 100% to 0% and back to 100% charged) is over 90%, while the lead-acid battery is 80%.

What’s more energy storage rack maintain a voltage of 13 to 13.4 volts when discharging up to 95+% while a lead-acid battery decreases in voltage from 13 to 12 volts or below. This example shows that the appliances equipped with LiFePO4 batteries will operate more efficiently during the discharge cycle than those using lead-acid batteries.
