Depth of Discharge 100%
Unlike SLA, LiFePO4 has a 100% discharge depth and will not affect the performance of the battery or its life expectancy. LiFePO4 also don’t have conversation lost unlike the SLA which has about 70%-80% lost in capacity so you will need to get a bigger capacity battery to meet the requirement you need.
Compare with SLA LiFePO4 cased packs are more efficient in storing and using of power. A LiFePO4 pack of the same size to a SLA will hold up to twice as much power. It will be up to 3 times as light and up to 3 times more long life.
Over 2000 cycles and very low self-discharge, LiFePO4 batteries will give you a long lasting solution for your applications with very low ongoing maintenance requirement. LiFePO4 will give you peace of mind for many years.
Discover the Benefits of the LiFePO4 Battery in Australia
JB Battery is a reliable commercial supplier of the LiFePO4 battery in Australia, and New Zealand. Over the past two decades, we've assisted numerous multi-national corporates in selecting the right battery solution for their operations, especially emergency lighting. Based on this extensive experience, we've put together a handy guide to help you decide if you should buy the LiFePO4 battery. Below we outline what sets the Lithium (Li), Iron (Fe), and Phosphate (PO4) batteries apart and discuss its possible operational applications.
Fast Facts About the Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery, Australia
The LiFePO4 battery bank forms part of the rechargeable lithium-ion generation of batteries, with this particular chemistry variation being a more affordable, safer and environmentally conscious option. Moreover, the technology is still in its infancy, meaning there is continuous research and improvements when it comes to the LiFePO4 batteries’ applications and energy-storing capabilities.
Portable, durable and consistent. Owing to the materials used in manufacturing the LiFePO4 battery, it is lightweight in relation to its size while still providing a longer cycle life when compared to other lithium-ion batteries. Furthermore, the battery provides a steady rate of discharge throughout its usage, enabling it to supply uniform power until discharged.
A recyclable option. When you buy a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery, you're choosing to be kinder to the environment. Firstly, the battery uses abundant resources, including copper, iron and graphite, which also require less energy to mine in comparison to lithium-ion batteries, which utilise cobalt, nickel and manganese.
Secondly, most of the materials used in the manufacturing process are recyclable. This eco-friendly aspect enables a cyclical marketplace, where reusable parts of redundant LiFePO4 batteries remain in the production process and are re-purchased as a new LiFePO4 battery.
Third, the battery can hold its charge and offers improved charge efficiency, utilising fewer energy resources. Intentionally these environmentally-friendlier methodologies are also what enable the producers to increase the batteries’ durability and lower its overall costs while also precluding the use of metal oxides.
Safety. Not only is the product a 'greener' alternative through its chemical and material composition, but it’s also safer. The materials used are naturally non-toxic in contrast to its metal oxide counterparts. At the same time, its chemical composition is inherently more tolerable and stable to adverse conditions, minimising the possibility of rupture and combustion.
Uses of the Lithium Iron Battery, Australia
As LiFePO4 battery technology evolves, so do the myriad of possible power storage applications for the battery. To date, its applications are vast and spread across a variety of industries due to its versatility, design and capacity. To bring you the best possible products, JB Battery has partnered with Ronda Battery as our sole brand distributor providing anything from a single cell format or a LiFePO4 battery pack to custom-designed battery projects. This partnership enables us to supply large businesses because the factory can produce up to 700 000 units a day.
High power applications. The LiFePO4 battery offers an improved and faster recharge capacity alongside a consistent and higher rate of discharge ability. Taking this into consideration, it is easy to understand why the LiFePO4 battery has become the battery of choice for high energy applications. These include forklifts, e-cars, e-buses, mobile homes, e-bikes, e-scooters, golf carts, power tools and boats.
Renewable energy systems. Beside the manufacturing process and raw materials being gentler on the environment, the battery is also the best energy storage battery for renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. As it isn't always sunny or windy, there will always be a need for the storage of energy when it comes to renewable energy. It seems only natural that the batteries used to store renewable energy are reusable and as eco-friendly as possible.
Emergency and back-up power. Various situations require reliable energy storage sources to ensure readiness for any eventuality, as is the case with emergency exit lighting or off-shore installations. Based on the LiFePO4's safety, longevity, reliability, tolerance and a lower rate of discharge, this maintenance-free battery is ideal for these emergency and back-up power requirements.
