German battery manufacturer Liacon has released its new Group 31 lithium iron phosphate (LFP) 12.8 V, 150 Ah battery.
Liacon’s LFP battery is designed to replace Group 31 lead-acid batteries for deep-cycle applications such as renewable energy storage, recreational vehicles and marine, according to the company. With 1,000 cranking amps, it can also start diesel engines, making it a flexible solution for a range of power applications.
Unlike traditional lithium-ion batteries, Liacon’s LFP batteries don’t contain heavy metals such as cobalt and nickel, nor do they contain lead, making them a sustainable battery solution for end users.
“Our new LFP battery’s design makes it easy to use in a variety of applications, delivering superior performance and safety, as well as a lower total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the application, compared to lead-acid batteries,” said Philip M. Meek, CEO of Liacon.
