Liacon releases new 12V LFP battery with a 4000+ life cycle
by CM Staff
Unlike traditional lithium-ion batteries with oxide based chemistries, Liacon’s does not contain rare heavy metals, like cobalt and nickel, nor does it contain lead, which is toxic to the environment.
ITZEHOE and CALGARY and CHATTANOOGA — Liacon, a battery manufacturer, has released a new, reportedly more versatile lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery that can replace all Group 31 lead acid units.
“Group 31 batteries are one of the highest selling in the market. Delivery fleets, marine vessels, recreational vehicles, renewable energy storage, and construction equipment all use this standard,” explains Philip M. Meek, CEO of Liacon.
“Lead acid batteries typically get 200-400 cycles before they fail. In comparison our lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries have ten times the life, cycling over 4,000 times.”
The new Group 31 LFP 12.8V 150 Ah battery has two to three times the energy of a lead-acid battery, and 1,000 cranking amps for starting heavy duty diesel engines, making it the most versatile solution where energy and power are needed.
And unlike traditional lithium-ion batteries with oxide based chemistries, Liacon’s does not contain rare heavy metals, like cobalt and nickel, nor does it contain lead, which is toxic to the environment.
“It makes them a sustainable battery choice for end-users,” adds Meek. “The LFP chemistry is also more stable, and safer, when compared to lithium-ion batteries with oxide based chemistries.”
“Liacon’s been developing its LFP batteries since before Trion acquired the company,” says Timothy Mayne, CEO of Trion Battery Technologies, which owns Liacon. “We anticipate further disrupting the battery industry with Trion’s advanced materials that will result in superior cells, batteries, and systems to meet the world’s need for better energy.”
