LiFeMgPO4 cells under puncture or short circuit are much less likely than other lithium ion batteries to experience thermal runaway. Different lithium ion technologies exhibit different safety profiles. In large format applications, bigger than laptops and cell phones, the choice of cathode material becomes more critical with respect to its inherent chemical safety factors. Our proprietary LiFeMgPO4 batteries offer high energy and power densities without compromising safety, along with robust temperature performance and best in class cycle life.
As a result of our stable, high-quality chemistry, Valence 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V lithium ion batteries have a superior cycle life compared to other existing technologies. In fact, compared to lead acid batteries, Valence batteries cycle 10 times more, while being half the weight and much smaller. By combining these modular batteries with our Battery Management System, customers are powering tug boats, locomotives and buses with power solutions up to 1000V.
The proprietary Valence LiFeMgPO4 product line has superior cycle life compared to both lead acid and lithium mixed oxide batteries. Valence was the first of large lithium ion battery manufacturers to develop a product line that conforms to Battery Council International (BCI) standards and form factors. As a result, Valence lithium ion batteries are a “drop in” solution for lead acid replacement, which means they are easy to implement and eliminate re-tooling charges. These attributes allow for a seamless transition from lead acid to lithium ion batteries.
