Why We Use Lithium Iron Phosphate

Lithium Iron Phosphate, or LiFePO4, batteries are one of the most durable and reliable energy sources on the market and a drastic improvement over lead-acid in safety, weight, capacity and shelf life.

Lion Energy LiFePO4 Diagram

Lithium Iron Phosphate is the safest lithium on the market. It will not explode or catch on fire. It is absent of potentially volatile chemicals that are found in other lithium cells.

Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries have up to 6,000+ life cycles without significantly  decreasing performance. That means they last for years. By comparison, the average lifetime of lead-acid batteries is just two years.

Lithium Iron Phosphate has 100% of its capacity available for use. It can be quickly charged and discharged again and again, reducing downtime and increasing efficiency. This makes it a great fit for a variety of applications.

It does not require active maintenance to extend its service life. The batteries show no memory effects and can be stored for long periods of time because of the extremely low self-discharge rate (<3% per month).

Because they emit no fumes or require little air flow, you can use them inside or outside. They can be stacked on top of each other or can be used in any position.

Using Lithium Iron Phosphate for energy storage, we can optimize usages and help solve the peaks and valleys that occurs during high and low energy demand usages. This also can help to stabilize the grid from intense demand cycles by allowing you to use the stored energy when you need it.

For the first time, green energy can be created and effectively stored and used as needed. You can harness the power of the sun and use it over and over again.

Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are relatively small and light weight. Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium provides great energy density at about half the mass and weight.

Energy storage allows you to be independent of the grid so you can have energy where and when you want it. So no worries about black outs, brown outs, or when the grid goes down.

How the Lion Safari ME Stacks up to Others

  • The Safari ME delivers more continuous watts at 2,000 compared to only 1,500 from most of the competition.
  • The Safari ME has a 4,000W surge rating compared to 3,000W or less surge rating of others.
  • Because of our fast charge technology, the Safari ME will charge in only 83 minutes compared to 8-10 hours. That’s amazing!
  • Our life cycles jump to 3,500+ when you add on the expansion pack (ME-XP).
  • At only 45 pounds – you get more power with less weight.
