Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) technology is relatively new to the market but has already made a huge impact where high power, safety and life-span are at the top of the priority list.
Enhanced safety and thermal stability allow the development of user-friendly applications for even the most rugged of conditions. Long life-cycle and low self-discharge mean cells can be stored and varying states of charge (SOC) for long periods of time with little maintenance.
LFP is currently used for; Medical carts/equipment, Starter batteries (Lead-acid replacement), Emergency lighting, Marine vessels, Material handling. Until recently, LFP has primarily been used in the ‘Power Cell’ market, however, developments in chemistry and technology have seen LFP becoming an integral part of the ‘Energy Cell’ market, thus increasing its influence on the energy transition.
