LiFePO4 stands for Lithium (Li) Iron (Fe) Phosphate (PO4), and is the specific type of lithium battery that we build here at Dakota Lithium. LiFePO4 batteries are highly regarded for their resiliency and long life compared to other lithium battery chemistries. For example, a Dakota Lithium-Iron-Phosphate battery will have a lifespan of 2,000 recharge cycles vs. 400-500 charges for the traditional lithium battery (like the one in your cell phone). We focus on building batteries with the longest lifespan because it provides the greatest value for you, the customer, and creates less e-waste, which helps our community and our planet.
Here’s a few more reasons why we love LiFePO4:
In fact, we love LiFePO4 so much that we developed our own patented LFP nanoparticles (also called nano powder), used to build exceptionally long lasting batteries. Learn more about Dakota Nanotech here.
