The lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery, also called LFP battery (with “LFP” standing for “lithium Ferro phosphate”), is a type of rechargeable battery, specifically a lithium-ion battery, which uses LiFePO4 as a cathode material, and a graphitic carbon electrode with a metallic current collector grid as the anode.

The specific capacity of LiFePO4 is higher than that of the related lithium cobalt oxide (LiCoO2) chemistry, but its energy density is slightly lower due to its low operating voltage. The main problem of LiFePO4 is its low electrical conductivity. Therefore, all the LiFePO4 cathodes under consideration are actually LiFePO4/C. Because of low cost, low toxicity, well-defined performance, long-term stability, etc.


LiFePO4 is finding a number of roles in vehicle use, utility scale stationary applications, and backup power.

LiFePO4 batteries can be used both in devices that need recharging, such as EV (electric vehicles), E-bike, Garden lights, electric cars, electric motorcycle, electric skateboards, golf vehicle, backup power, etc.

They are very durable. This is another aspect that LiFePO4 batteries for golf carts are proven to be very popular at the moment. The materials used in their construction are of high quality. This is solely responsible for such batteries lasting up to 7 years without getting damaged. The best part is that this technology is constantly worked on by companies. This means it will even get better with the passage of time.

Their rugged nature makes them perfect for any kind of scenario. All you have to do is ensure that manufacturer instructions have been followed. Also, charge as stated above to keep it in a perfect condition.

They are safe. This is perhaps another reason why LiFePO4 batteries are considered to be very safe. For instance, they do not experience overheating due to how their construction. Unlike most batteries you will find in the market, there is no danger of fire outbreak even when these batteries are punctured.

Key points to note
• They have been tightly sealed
• They do not contain hazardous cathode materials

That means no watering, no acid and no corrosion. Also there is no need for rubber gloves and safety glasses when handling our batteries.

For vehicles left in storage either for long winters or snow birds leaving their cart for months, lithium batteries only lose 3-5% of charge per month. Lead-Acid batteries will lose up to 33% of charge per month when not on the charger.
