As discussed in the earlier blogs, LiFePO4 (LFP) battery has earned a name for itself in the electric bike industry. The technology used in LFP battery is quite unique. Here in this blog we will discuss the basic technology used in the battery and its advantages.
LFP technology does not allow the use of heavy metals in the cells. This helps to prevent the “memory effect” as noticed in Nickel cadmium and Nickel-metal Hydride solution based batteries. This results in long shell life and long cycle life. And this is the reason why LFP battery is a maintenance free battery. LFP technology provides flexibility in battery application and cell design. Flexibility in cell design allows LFP to fit in smaller applications. It can even be used in cylindrical, prismatic and polymer battery construction. What makes this battery superior to other batteries is the technology used in it. This technology incorporates natural, phosphate based material which makes LFP battery safe. This material offers excellent combination of performance, safety, cheap cost and reliability. All these things make LFP battery environmentally sound!
All these are the reasons why LFP battery is used in wide range of applications like electric bikes, cell phones, notebooks, and pdf and consumer appliances.
