About 26650 lifepo4 related issues

Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) has become one of the most widely used cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries due to its high energy density, low cost, stable charging and discharging platform, environmental friendliness, and high safety. However, due to the low ion diffusion rate and poor electrical conductivity of LiFePO4, the rate capability and low temperature performance of LiFePO4 are greatly affected. How to improve its output power, energy density and service life at low temperature is the main challenge for lithium iron phosphate cathode materials.

Since Good enough’s research on LiFePO4 cathode materials in 1997, many researchers have carried out in-depth and extensive research on the modification strategies of LiFePO4 materials. So far, the modification methods of LiFePO4 mainly include ion doping, surface coating, morphology control, adding lithium supplementary materials and so on.

These cells provide 2C maximum continuous discharge current. The cells are sold in a pack of 4.

Is lithium-ion the same as LiFePO4?

With the continuous development of the lithium battery industry, more and more products are used in lithium battery products. Compared with lithium-ion batteries, lithium iron phosphate batteries are better than lithium iron phosphate batteries. The main differences are the source of composition, safety, and cost. Therefore, domestic new energy vehicle companies mostly used lithium iron phosphate batteries as an energy source in the early days.

Lithium battery is a kind of lithium battery with lithium iron phosphate battery as the positive electrode material of the battery. The key cathode materials of lithium batteries are lithium cobalt oxide batteries, lithium manganate batteries, lithium nickel oxides, ternary materials, lithium iron phosphate batteries, etc.

Lithium iron phosphate battery of secondary battery, the key development prospect at this stage is lithium battery, which has great advantages compared with NI-H and Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries.

Lithium battery is made from lithium metal material or lithium aluminum alloy as the positive electrode material of the battery in a non-hydroelectric power generation solution. The physical properties of lithium metal materials are very bright, so there are strict regulations on its production, processing, storage, application and ecological environment protection.

When the rechargeable lithium iron phosphate battery is resistant to overcharge to 100%, explosion accidents are not easy to occur; when the lithium battery reaches a certain standard value, gas will be generated for precipitation.

Lithium battery is the typical working voltage of a single lithium iron phosphate battery. There is no fire and no explosion during puncture, and no lithium battery will explode.

The lithium iron phosphate battery is resistant to overcharge and overdischarge, and overdischarge can repair more than 80% of its characteristics in a short time. Over-discharge of lithium batteries will cause irreversible damage.

The lithium iron phosphate battery can be charged and discharged with a large current, and it can be charged and discharged beyond 10C20C, while the lithium battery can only be charged and discharged at 3~4C.

However, the energy of lithium iron phosphate batteries is not as high as that of lithium batteries. The working voltage difference is smaller. Because of its large charge and discharge characteristics, it has key applications in pure electric vehicles, aviation models, etc. Large-capacity lithium batteries are mainly used in civilian industries.

Lithium iron phosphate battery (LiFePO4) is used as the positive electrode material of the battery, and copper element is used as the raw material of the rechargeable battery, which not only reduces the cost, but also improves the safety factor. The P-O bond in the crystallization of lithium iron phosphate battery is very stable and not easy to dissolve. Even under high temperature or overcharge standard, it will not cause heat or structure collapse, which can be trusted.

Can LiFePO4 be overcharged?

Yes, the life of a lithium battery depends on the number of cycles, not directly related to the number of charges.

The lithium iron phosphate battery is a lithium ion battery using lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) as the positive electrode material and carbon as the negative electrode material.

The 1C cycle life of lithium iron phosphate batteries generally reaches 2,000 times, or even more than 3,500 times, while the energy storage market requires more than 4,000-5,000 times, ensuring a service life of 8-10 years, which is higher than 1,000 cycles of ternary batteries. The cycle life of long-life lead-acid batteries is about 300 times.

At present, lithium iron phosphate batteries are mostly used as power batteries for electric vehicles.

Can you use Li-Ion charger on LiFePO4?

The charge-discharge reaction of the lithium iron phosphate battery is carried out between the two phases of LiFePO4 and FePO4. During the charging process, LiFePO4 is gradually separated from the lithium ions to form FePO4, and during the discharge process, the lithium ions are intercalated into FePO4 to form LiFePO4.

When the battery is charged, lithium ions migrate from the lithium iron phosphate crystal to the surface of the crystal, enter the electrolyte under the application of electric field force, then pass through the separator, and then migrate to the surface of the graphite crystal through the electrolyte, and then embed in the graphite lattice. At the same time, the electrons flow to the aluminum foil collector of the positive electrode through the conductor, flow to the copper foil collector of the negative electrode of the battery through the tab, the positive pole of the battery, the external circuit, the negative pole and the negative pole, and then flow to the graphite negative pole through the conductor. , so that the charge of the negative electrode reaches a balance. After the lithium ions are deintercalated from the lithium iron phosphate, the lithium iron phosphate is converted into a lithium iron phosphate battery.

When the battery is discharged, lithium ions are deintercalated from the graphite crystal, enter the electrolyte, and then pass through the separator, migrate to the surface of the lithium iron phosphate crystal through the electrolyte, and then re-insert into the lattice of the lithium iron phosphate. At the same time, the electrons flow to the copper foil collector of the negative electrode through the conductor, and flow to the aluminum foil collector of the positive electrode of the battery through the tab, the negative pole of the battery, the external circuit, the positive pole and the positive pole, and then flow to the iron phosphate through the conductor. The lithium positive electrode balances the charge of the positive electrode.

Can I use LiFePO4 in car?

Lithium iron phosphate batteries can be directly used in automobiles. Due to the insulator silica colloid mixed in sulfuric acid, the internal resistance is large, which weakens the discharge current, which is equivalent to its own current limiter, which weakens and avoids overcharge and overdischarge, and starve to death. Since there is no need to leave a gap in the lead plate, the acid solution can completely soak the lead plate, and the energy density is more than 20% higher than that of the conventional lead-acid battery, which is similar to the start-stop battery agm. Due to current limiting, etc., the lifespan is generally about twice as long as that of conventional lead-acid batteries. After the silicic acid is improved, the high temperature and low temperature characteristics are much better.

The deep discharge capacity of the battery is much higher than that of ordinary batteries, with less retention, and the battery is completely drained.

Due to the high thermal conductivity of silicic acid, the heat dissipation is fast, the probability of overheating is low, and the safety is high.

Disadvantages: The self-discharge rate is stronger than that of ordinary lead-acid batteries. It is stored for a long time and needs to be charged frequently. The internal resistance is larger, and the high current discharge is not good. The same power battery is used to start the vehicle. It is a disadvantage.

Due to the popularity of ordinary lead acid in the market and less colloid, it is slightly higher.

The advantages of lead-acid batteries are:

  1. Lead-acid batteries generally carry out deep charge and discharge within 300 times, the storage capacity is large, and the service life is about 2 years. The lead-acid battery has liquid, and it is used a lot after a period of time. If the battery is charged hot or the battery charging time is short, the liquid must be filled.
  2. The lead-acid battery generally has a net weight of 16-30kg and a large volume;
  3. There is a lot of lead in lead-acid batteries. If the waste disposal method is incorrect, it will cause environmental pollution to the natural environment.
  4. Single working voltage of lead-acid battery: Generally, the working voltage of lead-acid battery is generally 12v.

Compared with lead-acid batteries, lithium iron phosphate batteries have the following advantages:

  1. The volume is large, a single can be made into 5ah × 1000ah (1ah × 100mah), while the lead-acid battery 2v is generally 100ah × 150ah, and the transformation range is small.

  4. Ecological protection. Lead-acid batteries have many heavy metals exceeding the standard lead, resulting in waste water, while lithium iron phosphate batteries do not have all heavy metals exceeding the standard, and the environmental pollution in production and application is cost-effective.
  5. Although lead-acid batteries are cost-effective because of their raw materials, the product cost is less than that of lithium iron phosphate batteries. However, in the use period and normal maintenance, the specific application results of lithium iron phosphate batteries show that lithium iron phosphate batteries are more expensive than lead batteries. Acid batteries are more than 4 times more cost-effective.

Can you charge LiFePO4 with car alternator?

Rechargeable lithium iron phosphate battery for car power generation. In terms of charging, the correct charging method of the lithium battery pack is mainly to achieve the principle of charging when it is full, and it can be fully charged. The main purpose is to avoid overcharging during the use of the lithium battery pack, that is, to charge the lithium battery pack when the battery is nearly fully used.

Let’s take a look at the correct charging method of lithium iron phosphate battery.

Combined with the working principle of the lithium battery pack, its correct use mainly includes three aspects: charging, discharging and maintenance.

First of all, in terms of charging, the correct charging method of the lithium battery pack is mainly to achieve the principle of charging when it is full, and it can be fully charged. The main purpose is to avoid overcharging during the use of the lithium battery pack, that is, to charge the lithium battery pack when the battery is nearly fully used.

Secondly, it can prevent overcharging when fully charged. For lithium-ion batteries in the industrial industry, when using batteries in the past, charging was relatively slow, and a single charge may take 8-12 hours, while lithium battery packs can achieve fast charging. A lithium battery with the same capacity as a battery only takes about 4 hours to fully charge at a time, so pay attention when charging, and do not charge the lithium battery pack according to the charging time of the battery.

Last but not least, don’t do two things. To put it simply, don’t let the lithium battery work while charging. The main reason why this cannot be done is also very simple, this practice will reduce the service life of the lithium battery pack.

Summarize

After nearly 30 years of exploration, LiFePO4, as a commercialized cathode material, still has many aspects worthy of further research. The above series of modification strategies are of great significance for the design and preparation of LiFePO4 cathode materials with high specific energy, high rate and low temperature performance. In many cases, a single modification method cannot achieve the improvement of the overall performance of LiFePO4. Many studies have combined the advantages of several modification strategies to prepare cathode materials with better electrochemical performance. It is believed that through the joint efforts of researchers, the further performance improvement of LiFePO4 cathode material can maximize the needs of people’s production and life.
