AMP Battery Technology

Why do we choose to use Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries in the AMP? 

Factors such as safety, capacity, performance, and environmental considerations make Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries a preferred choice over other alternatives like Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries.

  1. Safety: LiFePO4 batteries are widely regarded as safer compared to LiPo batteries because they demonstrate much greater charge and discharge stability.
  2. Capacity: LiFePO4 batteries surpass LiPo batteries in terms of cycle life, with the ability to last up to ten times longer.
  3. Performance: LiFePO4 batteries exhibit a higher discharge rate and can maintain a more consistent voltage during usage, making them more suitable for high-power applications when compared to LiPo batteries.
  4. Environmental Impact: LiFePO4 batteries are considered more environmentally friendly than LiPo batteries due to their absence of toxic metals like cobalt or nickel, which are commonly found in LiPo batteries.


What is a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery? 

A Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP) battery is a type of lithium-ion polymer battery that employs LiFePO4 as the cathode material and a graphitic carbon electrode with a metallic backing as the anode.

LiFePO4 batteries, also known as LFP batteries, are rechargeable batteries that prioritize safety. They are designed to be compact and lightweight, with a cycle life capable of reaching thousands of cycles.

Key features of LiFePO4 batteries include:

  • Long cycle life: LiFePO4 batteries offer four to five times the cycle life of other lithium-ion batteries, reaching approximately 2000 to 3000 cycles or more. They can also be discharged to 100% depth without concerns of over-discharging, leading to extended usability.
  • Enhanced safety: Compared to other lithium-ion polymer batteries, LiFePO4 batteries have a wider operating temperature range, making them safer to use.

LiFePO4 batteries find applications in various domains, including:

  • Replacement for traditional lead-acid batteries: LiFePO4 batteries are commonly used as substitutes for lead-acid batteries, particularly in household solar energy systems, golf carts, outdoor portable energy storage, and electric motorcycles.
  • Specialized applications: LiFePO4 batteries are employed in space satellites and submarines, where safety and durability are critical factors.


In summary, the utilization of Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries in the AMP is driven by their superior safety profile, commendable cycle life, high performance in a demanding scenario, and reduced environmental impact.
