The discharge rate of Lifepo is very good, often better than lipo batteries. The lifespan (number is cycles) is at least double than lipo batteries (up to 2000 cycles). The nominal voltage is 3.3v per cell, high voltage cut off is 3.6 volts per cell. Low voltage cut off is 2.9 volts per cell.
So they same or better discharge rate than lipo, they last double the cycles, but they are provide a bit lower voltage and bit lower amp/hour capacity. They are safer than lipo, they won't catch on fire if overcharged somewhat. That can save your house and family
How can this battery boast such a high dicharge rate. All I have read about this type of battery
has a much lower discharge rate. Would we all not be flocking to LiFePo4 if it had the same rate as the standard Lipo battery? Alittle direction as to where i can read more about this specific battery would be greatly appreciated? Thanks Shucks
Does anyone have any specs to these cells? I'm pretty sure the standard LiFePO4 voltage and discharge C rate specs apply (~3.2-3.3VDC nominal) but what is the "Cycle Life". What is the maximum cycle life/count from full to 0% DOD or what is the cycle life/count from full to 80% DOD? What is the MAX charge C rate? What is the manufacturers recomended charge C rate? What is the LVC (Low Voltage Cutoff)? Now because this product has a slightly higher nominal voltage of 3.3VDC, what is the HVC (High Voltage Cutoff)? There's quite a bit of "unknowns" on this product as well as all the LiFePO4 products here, esxcept for the A123 cells. :o(
Ooops, just re-read the specs and the MAX charge rate is 5C. But what is the "Cycle life/count" at that rate? I know that a high charge C rate and high discharge C rate lowers life quickly. High charge C rate only lowers it also. but what is the cycle count when you charge at .5C (2.25A)?
