Soon, we’ll probably be seeing Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries being used in most electric cars and bikes. This new battery type is set to dominate the market. Based upon lithium ion technology, LiFePO4 batteries offer many advantages over lithium cobalt dioxide (LiCoO2) batteries which are commonly used in laptops, mp3 players and cell phones. In electric vehicles, LiFePO4 batteries offer greater range, power and safety.
LiFePO4 batteries also offer faster charging rates, and they provide full power until they are completely discharged. LiFePO4 chemistry is also environmentally friendly — it’s the least toxic of all the battery types.
