What is a LiFePO4 Battery?
LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) Batteries first appeared in the late 1990s, and as a new technology, it took a long time to be practical and affordable at the time. To increase the electrical conductivity of lithium iron phosphate compounds, they are mainly packed with carbon material.
How is the chemical composition and is there any danger?
LiFePO4 is a chemical that makes it safer than other lithium-based batteries. You may have heard a lot of news about self-burning lithium batteries in computers, children’s toys and cargo planes. However, there is no battery that magically ignites for any reason. These events occurred in other types of lithium batteries. Causes overheating, short circuits, or the release of oxygen by producing excessive heat can cause any type of battery to burn out. This is called thermal leakage, which is an extremely dangerous periodic process, and when it starts, it can be very difficult to stop. Thermal leakage is almost impossible in LiFePO4 batteries. Because oxygen atoms share electrons with a very strong covalent bond. The harder it is to break the bond between the oxygen atoms, the less likely it is that the chemical compounds will be out of balance.
LiFePO4 batteries are the safest, most chemically balanced products on the market.
When you get LiFePO4, it may look very light in terms of weight. It is 60% lighter than heavy metal based products. When weight issues are critical, LiFePO4 batteries are the best choice. The most important point that many users emphasize is also the energy capacity of these batteries. What exactly does energy capacity mean? One LiFePO4 battery uses 4 times more energy than a lead-based battery. Four times more claims are based on energy as a function of gravity. However, batteries are generally ampere-hours, not weights. That is, a conventional battery of 10 amps per hour will have the same capacity and will appear in the same physical dimensions as a LiFePO4 of about 10 amps. This does not change. The difference is that LiFePO4 will be lighter than it and will discharge at full voltage for a longer period of time.
How is the charging and discharging period of the battery?
Much of the battery’s performance and economy depends on how many times it will be charged and discharged before it can be used or replaced. Older technologies such as nickel metal hybrids and SLA batteries are good for several hundred circuits.LiFePO4 batteries will exceed this number. These types of batteries are very resistant to self-loss of energy. The self-discharge rate of LiFePO4 batteries is 5% month, and that of conventional batteries is 1% day. In other words, a 1 LiFePO4 battery loses the energy that a traditional battery loses in just 30 days in 6 months.
From an environmental point of view LiFePO4 batteries.
These batteries do not contain heavy metals or toxic chemicals. In general, they are cleaner products than their predecessors.
What are the advantages of LiFePO4?
- It has a constant discharge voltage – it can provide a stable output until the end.
- It is a very safe type of battery.
- The risk of fire is reduced compared to other batteries.
- It is environmentally friendly by battery standards.
- It has high energy productivity.
- There are thousands of charge cycles compared to batteries with a traditional circuit of around a few hundred.
- It differs from others by its longevity.
LiFePO4 batteries also have some disadvantages. One of them is the need for a special charger. Another issue is that these batteries are more expensive than others. As with any battery, the key to LiFePO4 is to follow the instructions for proper use.
