Since the advent of lithium batteries, around its research, development work has been ongoing. Lithium-ion battery cathode material has been a hot topic of debate, today we come to talk about lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4 batteries) as the cathode material lithium iron phosphate batteries.
Lithium iron phosphate full name should be lithium iron phosphate lithium-ion battery, this name is too long, referred to as lithium iron phosphate battery. Because of its performance is particularly suitable for power applications, the name of the "power" word, that is, lithium iron phosphate power battery. It was also referred to as "lithium iron (LiFe) power battery".
LiFePO4 is used as the cathode cost
Currently used as a lithium-ion battery cathode materials are: LiCoO2, LiMn2O4, LiNiO2 and LiFePO4. Among the metal elements constituting the positive electrode material of the battery, cobalt (Co) is the most expensive and has a small storage amount. Ni, Ni and Mn are cheaper and Fe is the cheapest. The price of the cathode material is also consistent with the prices of these metals. Therefore, the use of LiFePO4 cathode material made of lithium-ion battery should be the cheapest, for example our lifepo4 batteries pack use in solar power generator.
The advantages are better safety; longer service life; does not contain any heavy metals and rare metals (raw material costs low); no memory effect; high temperature; can easily pass the acupuncture experiment. And it could be used in portable solar power generator.
Lithium iron phosphate lithium battery is more heavy and bulky; the lithium iron phosphate lithium battery has a lot of defects, such as tap density and compaction density is low; low temperature performance; battery capacity is small; the same battery capacity, a serious impact on the life of electric vehicles. In addition, the lithium iron phosphate battery is basically can not be recycled after recycling, there is no recyclable value.
