LiFePO4 batteries for electronic lifts.
LiFePO4 batteries offer the customer a significantly reduced total cost of ownership by virtue of their greatly improved cycle and storage life.

Weight: Weight reduction over lead-acid is a key consideration in the decision to use as a replacement for existing lead acid batteries.

Compatibility: When requiring a Li-ion battery that would be compatible with existing chargers, the LiFePO4 is the only Li-ion chemistry that has a voltage compatible with lead acid chargers.

Charger Solutions Available

Compatibility with legacy storage systems: Lead acid batteries are still commonly used with electronic lifts. A key advantage of our LiFePO4 over other Li-ion battery chemistries is that LiFePO4’s fundamental voltage (3.2V nominal as opposed to 3.6-3.7V for oxide Li-ion chemistries) provides essentially user friendly replacements for lead acid batteries (4 LiFePO4 cells in series = 12.8V).

LiFePO4 alone allows a back compatibility with legacy systems.

Safety: The intrinsic stability of the LiFePO4 chemistry and lack of event propagation in our batteries is a key consideration of customers selecting us as their Li-ion vendor.

Cycle Life: Given the duty cycle projected for many lift systems, the battery must be capable of being charged and discharged multiple times per day.
