Lithium iron phosphate battery refers to a lithium-ion battery that uses lithium iron phosphate as a positive electrode material. The cathode materials of lithium-ion batteries mainly include lithium cobaltate, lithium manganate, lithium nickelate, ternary materials, lithium iron phosphate, and so on. Lithium iron phosphate batteries have become the mainstream energy-storage technology application. The following is a detailed introduction of the advantages of lithium iron phosphate battery energy storage technology.
1. High safety performance
The P-O bond in the lithium iron phosphate crystal is stable and difficult to decompose. Even at high temperatures or overcharges, it will not collapse and generate heat like lithium cobalt oxide or from strong oxidizing substances, so it has good safety.
2. Long service life
The cycle life of a long-life lead-acid battery is about 300 times, up to 500 times, while the cycle life of a lithium iron phosphate power battery is more than 2000 times, and it can be used 2000 times with standard charging (5 hours rate). The service life of a lead-acid battery of the same quality is at most 1 to 1.5 years, while a lithium iron phosphate battery used under the same conditions will have a theoretical service life of 7 to 8 years. And it can be charged and discharged quickly. With a dedicated charger, the battery can be fully charged within 40 minutes of 1.5C charging, and the starting current can reach 2C, but lead-acid batteries have no such performance.
3. Good high-temperature performance
The peak value of lithium iron phosphate electric heating can reach 350℃-500℃, while lithium manganate and lithium cobaltate are only around 200℃. Wide operating temperature range (-20C--75C), with high-temperature resistance, lithium iron phosphate electric heating peak can reach 350℃-500℃, while lithium manganate and lithium cobaltate are only around 200℃.
4. Large capacity
The capacity of the battery will quickly fall below the rated capacity value when the battery is always fully charged and not discharged. This phenomenon is called the memory effect. Like nickel-metal hydride and nickel-cadmium batteries, there is memory, but lithium iron phosphate batteries do not have this phenomenon. No matter what state the battery is in, it can be charged and used at any time without having to discharge it before charging.
The volume of the lithium iron phosphate battery of the same specification and capacity is 2/3 of the volume of the lead-acid battery, and the weight is 1/3 of the lead-acid battery.
6. Environmental protection
Lithium iron phosphate batteries are generally considered to be free of heavy metals and rare metals (nickel-hydrogen batteries require rare metals), non-toxic (SGS certified), non-polluting, comply with European RoHS regulations and are absolutely green.
