Lithium-based batteries are rapidly replacing the 150 year-old technology of Lead Acid batteries. Lithium batteries can be used in applications where weight is an issue. Lithium-Ion has been made available in Lithium Iron Phosphate and Lithium Polymer, along with a variety of other chemistries.LiFePO4 batteries, also known as Lithium Iron Phosphate, are a significant improvement on lead acid in terms of weight, capacity and shelf-life. LiFePO4 Lithium batteries are the most safe, as they won't overheat and they won't catch fire if punctured. LiFePO4 batteries' cathode material is safe and does not pose any environmental or health risks. The oxygen is bonded tightly to the molecules so there is no risk of the battery exploding into flames. LiFePO4 batteries can accept a charge from any lead-acid battery charger. Although less dense than Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer batteries, iron and phosphate are more abundant and easier to obtain so that costs are lower. The life expectancy of LiFePO4 is about 5-7 years. Lithium-Ion and Lithium polymer batteries are the most energetic of all Lithium batteries. However, they lack safety. LiCoO2, also known as Lithium Cobalt Oride, is the most popular type of Lithium-Ion. This chemistry has the oxygen not being strongly bonded with the cobalt. As such, the battery could catch fire if it heats up in any way, including rapid charging or discharging or heavy use. This can be disastrous in high-pressure environments like airplanes or large applications like electric vehicles. This problem can be countered by using Lithium Ion or Lithium Polymer battery devices. These batteries require expensive and sensitive electronics to monitor them. Although Lithium Ion batteries are intrinsically high in energy density, the LiFePO4's energy density will drop after one year. After two years, the LiFePO4's energy density will be significantly higher. These batteries can also be dangerous due to the presence of Cobalt, which can cause health problems and increase environmental disposal costs. A Lithium-Ion battery's expected life span is 3 years after production. Lead Acid, a well-proven technology, can be quite affordable. They are still being used in a majority of electric vehicle applications as well as starting applications. The only problem with LiFePO4 batteries, compared to Lead-Acid ones, is their inability to perform below 0 degrees Celsius. LiFePO4 batteries have quickly become an industry standard because of their ability to reduce CO2, weight, operating temperatures, and capacity. LiFePO4 can be a more cost-effective option than lead acid. However, it has a longer life span which makes it an attractive financial choice.
