What are the advantages of lithium iron phosphate batteries?

Tue Jun 21 09:31:39 CST 2022

Lithium iron phosphate battery and lithium manganese acid, lithium cobalt acid, ternary lithium battery is the same branch of lithium ion battery, its performance is mainly suitable for power application, then called lithium iron phosphate power battery, also known as lithium iron battery.Therefore, the advantage of lithium iron phosphate battery mainly refers to its comparison with other batteries in power application.In this sense, it will be compared with ternary lithium batteries and lead-acid batteries comparative advantages.

Lithium iron phosphate High temperature resistance advantages compared with ternary lithium batteries

The high temperature performance of lithium iron phosphate battery is better, which can withstand 350°C~500°C high temperature, while lithium manganate/lithium cobalt oxide battery is usually only about 200°C, and the modified ternary lithium battery material will also decompose at 200°C.

The "elder" of the three -- the absolute advantage of long life

The cycle life of lithium iron phosphate battery is longer than that of lead-acid battery and ternary lithium battery.The "long life" of lead-acid batteries is only about 300 times, up to 500 times;The capacity of ternary lithium battery can reach 2000 times in theory, but it will decay to 60% when applied to 1000 times in practice.The real life of lithium iron phosphate battery is 2000 times, with 95% capacity at this time, and its concept cycle life is more than 3000 times.

Lithium iron phosphate It has many advantages over lead-acid batteries

1. Large capacity.

The monomer can be made into 5Ah~1000Ah (1Ah = 1000mAh), while the 2V monomer of lead-acid battery is usually 100Ah~150Ah, with a small range of variation.

2. Light weight.

A lithium iron phosphate battery of the same capacity is 2/3 the volume and 1/3 the weight of a lead-acid battery.

3. Fast charging ability.

The starting current of lithium iron phosphate battery can reach 2C to achieve high charging rate;The current of lead-acid battery is generally required to be between 0.1c and 0.2c, so the fast charging performance cannot be achieved.

4. Environmental protection.

Lead-acid batteries contain a large number of heavy metals -- lead, and produce waste liquid, while lithium iron phosphate batteries do not contain any heavy metals, so they are pollution-free in production and use.

5. Good value for money.

Although lead-acid batteries cost less than lithium iron phosphate batteries due to their cheap materials, their service life and economy in daily maintenance are lower than lithium iron phosphate batteries.The practical application results show that the cost performance of lithium iron phosphate batteries is more than 4 times that of lead-acid batteries.

Lithium iron phosphate battery application scope is mainly manifested in the direction of power, but also in theory can be extended to more areas, it is by the comparison of the various advantages, if in such aspects as energy density and the discharge ratio do ascend, traditional into other types of lithium ion battery application field is also a question of time.
