A variation on lithium-ion chemistry, lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO 4), is one of the more recent developments in rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable lithium iron phosphate batteries use LiFePO4 as their main cathode material. While lithium iron phosphate batteries have a lower energy density than other lithium-ion chemicals, they provide a higher power density and a longer life cycle.
Your leading lithium battery manufacturer is Lithium Batteries. Lithium iron phosphate battery packs and assemblies are manufactured according to customer specifications. In order to optimize the reliability, safety, and manufacturability of your custom LFP battery packs, our battery design team uses the latest mechanical and electronic tools. We provide rechargeable electricity for your battery-operated products inexpensively and reliably with lithium iron phosphate batteries.

Properties of the lithium iron phosphate cell
Before choosing a battery, consider these factors:
- The voltage
- Capacity at rated
- The operating temperature
- The availability of
When these points are understood, a cell / battery can be selected that meets the necessary requirements to successfully complete the project. Adding multiple cells in series can increase the voltage if your project requires more voltage than your battery can deliver. By connecting the cells in parallel, you can increase the battery’s total current capacity (runtime).
Advantages and disadvantages of lithium iron phosphate batteries
Lithium Batteries manufactures custom lithium iron phosphate battery packs for a variety of custom applications. We use lithium ion derived chemistry for our rechargeable lithium iron battery packs that has many of the same advantages as other lithium ion batteries.
Benefits of the Custom LFP Battery
The thermal and chemical stability of lithium iron phosphate battery packs is superior to that of other battery options. Compared to lithium-ion batteries that use less safe cathode materials, these batteries have improved safety properties. Due to incorrect handling during charging and discharging, rechargeable lithium iron batteries are practically nonflammable, which allows them to withstand higher temperatures without significant damage. LiFePO 4 also has a higher discharge rate and a longer lifespan than other Li-ion chemicals.
Disadvantages of the custom LiFePO 4 battery pack
In terms of energy and volume, lithium iron phosphate battery packs have a lower energy density than LiCoO 2 cells and batteries. LiFePO 4 cells have lower voltages and energy densities than other Li-ion cells, but this disadvantage is offset over time by a slower loss of capacity (longer calendar life) than other lithium-ion battery chemicals, such as LiCoO 2 cobalt or LiMn 2 O 4 manganese spinel.
Lithium-iron cells and batteries also come in Energy and Power types, depending on whether a longer run time or a high discharge rate is needed.

Applications for lithium-ion phosphate batteries
Lithium iron batteries are popular for electric vehicles because of their fast charging and high discharge capabilities, as well as their long cycle and calendar lives. LFP-Chemie has also been taken over by power tool manufacturers for the same reasons. For its inherent safety, medical device manufacturers and defense companies are adopting LFP chemistry. LFP batteries are regularly used in the following industries:
- Electric car manufacturer
- Company that manufactures power tools
- Manufacturer of medical devices
- Armed forces
