Rare Earth Lithium Iron Phosphate Power Battery. This new technology replaces the previous LiFePO4 design.
At 3.3V per cell, a package of 4 cells can replace a traditional 12V lead acid battery. The bulk charging stage needs to reach 14.6V, which most modern lead acid chargers and solar controllers can be set to accommodate.
Unlike standard lead acid type batteries which have a charge efficiency of 88%, LiFePO4 batteries are over 98% efficient. Their voltage remains almost unchanged down to 80% discharged state. They can be discharged by 50% 3000 times with almost no loss of capacity within the warranty conditions
LiFePO4 batteries are very safe. They won't leak, and don't emit explosive gasses. They are ideal for electric vehicles, mobile homes and boats. Their long life also make them superior for house use as well, and their high current capability makes them a superior performer for inverters and high impulse electric motors.
