LiFePo4 Battery: What makes it ideal for your Inverters!
Batteries that have lithium as their anode are known as Lithium batteries. Lithium batteries can be divided into three on the basis of the technology used in it. They are Lithium-Ion, Lithium Phosphate and Lithium Polymer batteries. Lithium Iron batteries, otherwise known as LiFePo4 batteries are the most advanced one among lithium batteries. Like any other batteries, Li-iron (LiFePo4) batteries consist of components like cathode, anode, electrolyte, separator and current collector. In a Lithium Iron battery, Lithium Iron Phosphate is the cathode material and a graphite carbon electrode with metallic backing is the anode.
Why LiFePo4 batteries for Inverters?!
Its a known fact to all that batteries plays a vital role in determining the performance and life span of home inverters. In comparison with other battery technologies such as Nickel, Silver and Lead Lithium batteries have wide acceptance all over the world. Lithium has a high electrochemical potential and can be recharged repeatedly. Therefore lithium batteries have minimal maintenance cost and a longer life cycle.
Along with the advantages that are common for lithium batteries Lithium iron (LiFePo4) or Lithium Ferrous Phosphate Batteries have greater thermal and chemical stability hence they got better safety aspects as well. They really can improve your inverter’s overall efficiency as LiFePo4 batteries are more reliable, stable and have zero maintenance as well.
· LiFePo4 batteries have high charge and discharge efficiency and a higher capacity than ordinary batteries. They have constant output power.
· They are more lightweight than other batteries. Therefore they can bring considerable changes to the design and overall weight of your power backup system.
· They are environment friendly and non-toxic.
· LiFePo4 have a 10 times longer lifespan than the normal lead-acid batteries with almost zero maintenance. Therefore it can increase the cost-efficiency of your home inverter.
· They have twice the battery capacity and can handle the temperature variations more effectively.
· LiFePo4 batteries have no memory and they don't need any scheduled recycling.
· They have a higher energy density along with better safety aspects.
· Lithium Iron batteries need less time to charge.
· They are generally incombustible while mishandling. They have got better stability during short circuits and overcharging. So they are one among the safest batteries available now in the market.
· They have a constant discharge voltage, that stays close to 3.2 V till the battery gets exhausted.
· Like other lithium batteries, Priming not needed for LiFePo4 also.
