Lithium Werks Power Cells
Superior Lithium Ion Phosphate Chemistry including Nanophopsphate® for power & LiFePO4 for energy.
Academic foundation. Lithium Werks power cells are based on technology originally developed at M.I.T. for superior power performance called Nanophosphate®.
Superior capacity. The Nanophosphate technology is structurally different than other iron phosphates, allowing much higher rate capability and resulting in higher power, increased safety, and better life.
Lithium Werks LFP vs. Lead-acid:
Choosing Lithium Werks’ patented Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry over a lead-acid solution brings many advantages:
- Energy Density in Less Weight:
A Lithium Werks battery typically stores 3 times the energy density of a lead-acid solution, in less than half the total weight.
- Constant Power:
Low internal resistance means fast charging and no loss of power during the complete discharge cycle.
While the initial purchase costs of Lithium batteries may be higher, due to the significantly longer lifespan and lack of maintenance required, the overall cost-per-cycle of a Lithium Werks solution is dramatically lower.
- Usable Energy:
Lithium-ion possesses more usable energy over any state of charge. Lithium batteries 100% of rated capacity is available, regardless of discharge rate.
- Longer Life:
Lead-acid batteries will only deliver a few hundred cycles before they need replacing. Lithium solutions provide thousands of cycles.
Lithium Werks LFP vs. Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC):
If considering different Lithium chemistries, why choose LFP over NMC?
NMC cell manufacturers are consistently trying to reduce the levels of cobalt in their batteries due to insufficient supply and rising costs. Lithium Werks LFP batteries are 100% cobalt-free.
- Cycle Life:
LFP batteries can typically deliver a longer cycle life over NMC counterparts.
- Thermal Runaway:
NMC cells can be prone to thermal runaway at lower temperatures, especially when fully charged, when compared with LFP, which is more stable throughout the temperature range.
- Abuse Tolerance:
Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are robust and reliable. They have a higher abuse tolerance than an NMC solution.
- Higher Current and Peak Power:
Lower internal resistance means a higher current and peak power capability without compromising safety.
