Lifepo4 Battery VS Lead Acid Battery

As we all know, the two main types of batteries in the battery industry are lead-acid batteries and lifepo4 batteries, each of which has different characteristics and application fields;

Lead-acid batteries are widely used in automobile starting, UPS systems, and other fields due to their low cost, high reliability, and mature technical applications.

Lithium iron phosphate batteries are favored in electric vehicles, energy storage systems, and other fields due to their high energy density, long cycle life, and lightweight. With the continuous advancement of science and technology, the battery industry is constantly innovating and developing. In the future, more types of batteries may appear to meet the needs of different fields.

lifepo4 battery VS lead acid battery

We will list the differences between lead-acid batteries and lithium iron phosphate batteries from the following aspects:

1. Energy density comparison of LiFePo4 battery and lead acid battery:

Lead acid battery: 30-50Wh/kg;
LiFePo4 battery: 110-160Wh/kg;
The energy density of LiFePo4 is 3-5 times that of lead acid battery

2. Cycle life:

Lead acid: 200-300 cycles
LiFePo4: 2000-6000 cycles
LiFePo4 batteries have a longer lifespan. The service life of lead-acid batteries is generally 1-2 years

3. Weight and volume:

The volume of the LiFePo4 battery is 2/3 of the lead-acid battery, and the weight is about 1/3 of the lead-acid battery.
For example:
12V200AH LiFePo4 battery: 25KG
12V200AH Lead acid battery: 60KG

4. Discharging characteristic:

For fully charged LiFePo4 battery and lead acid battery, at the same temperature and different discharge current rates, the discharge output of the LiFePo4 battery is very stable, and the discharge output of the lead acid battery is very different, which will cause power instability.

5. Operating temperature range:

LiFePo4 battery: -20-60 ° C
Lead-acid battery: 15-35 ° C

6. Environmental protection:

LiFePo4 battery does not contain any heavy metals or rare metals. It’s non-toxic, Production and use will not produce pollution, and in line with European ROHS regulations, is a green battery.
Lead is present in large quantities in lead-acid batteries. If not handled properly, it will still cause secondary environmental pollution.
