With the technological revolution on the rise, it’s no wonder battery packs are also getting advanced. Lithium batteries use lithium-ions to store energy and ultimately create a voltage that we humans leverage from.
There are six main types of lithium batteries. Today, we are going to discuss the LiFePO4, short for lithium iron phosphate batteries. Why are lithium iron phosphate batteries best and what are their applications?
Let’s find out!
What is LiFePO4 Battery Pack?
A lithium iron phosphate battery or lithium Ferro Phosphate battery is a type of lithium-ion battery that contains cathode materials made from lithium iron phosphate. LFPs have a long lifecycle around 6,000 cycles, with great thermal stability and performance. Most of the LiFePO4 battery packs allow 100% discharging without even getting the battery damaged.
Applications of 48V Lithium Battery Pack
- Space Saving Design
One of the biggest advantages of owning a LiFePO4 battery pack is the amount of space it saves. Since it can be wall-mounted, you can easily save space while making the overall design look quite well.
A good example of that would be SAKO 48V Lithium Battery Pack. Thanks to its thoughtful power wall design, this 48V lithium battery pack can be mounted on walls, saving a lot of space for other use while making the battery look aesthetically pleasing.
- High Density, Yet Small and Lightweight
LiFePO4 battery packs are some of the highest density batteries that can provide power for a longer period. Better even, their high density does not come at the price of size.
In actuality, the LiFePo4 battery packs are of lightweight and small sizes, thanks to the inner material, which makes it efficient while making the overall size smaller and weight lighter.
On average, the LiFePO4 can provide around 50% more electrical capacity while being much smaller in size compared to regular lead-acid batteries.
- Longer Lifespan and Durability
One of the biggest benefits of the LiFePO4 cells is that they are not only durable but have longer lifespan than most batteries out there. For example, when we talk about boats, they need batteries that won’t cause them trouble every single day.
The small maintenance can make it difficult for the captains to drive a boat and that’s where the LiFePO4 batteries come in. This is because lithium iron phosphate battery packs can easily surpass fossil fuel systems. The lifespan can easily go up to 6,000 times the charge/discharge cycle over the next 10 years.
- Temperature Resilience
Temperature is a big issue when it comes to regular lead-ion batteries. Even some of the best lithium-ion batteries will struggle to operate somewhere between 10 degrees Celsius to 55 degrees Celsius. However, the LifePO4 battery packs can withstand temperatures from -40 degrees Celcius up to 120 degrees Celsius.
Hence, for countries and areas with extreme temperatures, the LifePO4 batteries will be ideal since they are far more temperature resilient than regular lithium-ion batteries.
Moreover, to take things up a notch, the performance in extreme temperatures does not drop at either end of the scale.
- Discharge Protection and Safety
Thanks to their superior thermal and chemical stability, they don’t suffer from “thermal runaway” like many lithium-ion cells do. This way, the LiFePO4 batteries are quite protected, stable, and safe. They also have dangerous handling protectors and even if they are short-circuiting, LiFePO4 batteries won’t explode or catch fire.
- Smart BMS System Communication
LiFePO4 batteries have a smart BMS system that can communicate with various brands of solar inverters. Hence, compatibility isn’t even a problem.
Why is Ours the Perfect 48V Lithium Battery Pack?
Apart from having a LiFePO4 battery type with the strengths mentioned above, SAKO’s Wall Stand Lithium Battery Pack also best its competitors with additional merits. It is an all-in-one system built with a 48V lithium battery module, a 6KW hybrid solar inverter, and a solar/ac charger. One of the biggest benefits that set SAKO aside from its competitors is its 6000 charge/discharge cycle capability.
Here are some of the key features that you will get with SAKO’s wall stand 48V lithium battery pack:
- Easy to install
