What's the application of Lithium-ion Battery?


Li-ion batteries are rechargeable batteries that use lithium ions which move from a negative electrode to a positive electrode to create power. Nowadays, li-ion batteries are prevalent in everyday use which range from consumer electronics to various electric cars and storage system.

The term "Li-ion" battery is similar to the term “car”, it is a general concept which refers to many kinds of lithium. There are many different chemistries for Li-Ion batteries including lithium polymer battery, LiCoO2 battery, LiMn2O4 battery and lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. UFO BATTERY has specialized in design and manufacturing lithium-ion battery especially LiFePO4 battery for more than 10 years. So, what can UFO Lithium-ion Battery do for you? Can it be applied for various fields? Let’s take a look here. 

● Energy Storage Application

With the mission of utilizing renewable energy and making a greener fossil fuel-free world, energy storage is dramatically increasing in recent years. A new study finds that running gas plants will be far more expensive than building solar panels, wind turbines and energy storage over the next few decades.

Generally, traditional batteries like lead-acid batteries account for a large part of energy storage market. However, low efficiency and Depth of discharge are the main shortcomings of lead-acid battery. With the emergence of LiFePO4 battery, it is becoming popular to be applied for energy storage system because of the benefits of high efficiency and deep depth of discharge(DOD). Besides, the performance of lead acid batteries drops dramatically in both high and low temperatures, while lithium iron phosphate batteries have a good temperature resistance to operate in temperatures ranging from -20°C to 60°C. This characteristic makes LifePO4 batteries the ideal alternative for energy storage system in both the Arctic and Sub Saharan regions. They could be used in multiple kinds of energy storage system in every climate around the world.

● Telecomunication Base Station Application 

The arrival of information age reflects the growing importance of communication base station to people because it is the infrastructure that make the network everywhere. If the base station stops operating, there would be no signal for mobile phone or network. Thus, the remote connection will be cut off, resulting in various inconvenience to the life in such Internet era. The importance of operation stability of the communication base station can be obviously seen.

Due to the high reliability demand of communication base station, a complete communication power supply solution requires that the power supply system should be equipped with high-reliability and high-security batteries. The defects of lead-acid battery such as short life cycle, frequent maintenance and poor temperature resistance make it cannot perform as stable as lithium iron phosphate battery (LFP battery). Although the initial investment is higher, UFO LiFePO4 telecom battery is worthy for the good operation in the long run. LiFePO4 battery would be more favorable for telecommunication equipment. 

● Solar Street Light Application

When it comes to the dark night, it is the street light that helps light up the world. And how does the street light work? It needs power. Under the universal calling for utilizing clean and sustainable energy, solar street lights come into play in the market. In the past, installation of lead-acid battery for solar street light requires complicated process. Conversely, the benefits of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery such as high energy density make the battery volume become smaller with the same capacity, making the integration of batteries and solar street lights possible. The solar street light and LiFePO4 battery can be all in one so as to save space and provides more convenience for transportation, installation and maintenance meanwhile. UFO customized LiFePO4 battery will be the right battery for your solar street light application. 

● Electric vehicles Application

Electric vehicles are increasingly popular now with the development of new energy and LiFePO4 technology is a perfect fit for these vehicles. With a high energy density, LifePO4 batteries are about 1/3-1/4 the weight of traditional lead acid batteries, making them a more sensible lightweight solution. They also cycle up to 5,000 times, whereas lead acid batteries cycle only 300-500 times before failing. Moreover, lithium iron phosphate batteries can be charged at a constant current and constant voltage, which allows them to be recharged in a short time and return to work when they’re needed. These advantages make lithium iron phosphate batteries versatile for a variety of applications, such as golf cart, electric forklift, camper van, floor machine and other small electric vehicles.
