Field Notes

Our Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries contain no poisonous lead, no acid, and do not create gasses during charge, as traditional Lead-Acid batteries do. Compared to lead-acid, Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are also extremely light, have much lower self-discharge, do not sulfate, and are environmentally friendly.

Our Lithium power supplies have a Battery Management System (BMS). BMS monitors the key operational parameters during charging and discharging such as voltages, currents and internal temperatures. There are three main objectives common to all Battery Management Systems (BMS) are

bulletProtect the cells or the battery from damage from overcharging or discharging too low
bulletProlong the life of the battery with cell balancing.
bulletMaintain the battery in a safe operating state.

Because of its light weight, safety, excellent thermal stability, long life, good electrochemical properties as well a very high specific energy density, Lithium Phosphate batteries are the best choice to replace lead acid batteries.

FEATURES:

bulletUltra light. One fifth the weight of lead-acid batteries on average
bulletTwice to four times the service life of lead-acid batteries
bulletDrop-in replacement for your OEM battery
bulletFast recharge rate
bulletNo explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid
bulletEnvironmentally friendly

 SAFETY:

bulletInternal over-charge protection
bulletInternal low-voltage protection.
bulletInternal short-circuit protection.
bulletInternal cell balancing.
bulletNo presence of toxic substances.

CHARGING:

These Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are intended to be used as a direct replacement for lead acid batteries used in energy storage systems. We recommend that you do not  trickle charge these batteries, but use advanced chargers that we sell  that are designed for these lithium power supplies, that turn OFF charging current when the battery is completely charged at 14.6V.  Using lead acid chargers that charges up to 16V, along with leaving them ON, will damage the Lithium cell over extended time.

LIFETIME:

bulletExpected number of charge cycles: over 2,000.
bulletSelf-discharge rate: only 2% per month.
bulletExpect 8-10 years of battery life that will reduce your operating cost by half compared to lead acid.
