As a “drop-in” replacement for lead-acid house batteries, the Lifos LiFePO4 battery does not require additional charging equipment. The fact that the battery is self-contained lends credence to this claim.
To provide the highest level of safety, dependability, and durability, they contain a Battery Management System (BMS). The manufacturer claims they are compatible with any lead-acid charger and DC-to-DC converter on the market.
At 90 percent DoD or 50 percent DoD, LiFePo4 Battery are capable of 2,750 cycles DoD or 5,000 cycles with a 25 percent lighter weight and 30 percent smaller size than a similar lead-acid battery, according to the manufacturer. An enormous leap forwards from lead-acid batteries.
Five-year warranties are offered.
Smart Victron offers ‘drop-in’ LFP batteries for installations using 12.8V or 25.6V systems from well-known Dutch manufacturer Smart Victron, known for the high quality of their electrical products. From 60 to 300 Ah, these batteries can hold a lot of energy. If the DoD is 80 percent, these will last for 2,500 cycles; if it is 50 percent, they can last for up to 5,000 cycles.
In addition to indicating the need for an external Victron VE. Bus BMS, the Smart label also indicates the presence of an internal Bluetooth module, enabling remote monitoring.
A 100 Ah battery can be discharged at a maximum of 100 amps and connected to five batteries in parallel.
A special heat sink is built into these BMS-integrated drop-in replacement LFP batteries to keep the cells cool while charging. The 120Ah variant can charge at 120A and discharge at 200A. A connector is included, allowing for real-time monitoring of the battery’s status.
Battle Born is a well-known LFP LiFePo4 Battery brand. Using their 100Ah LiFePo4 batteries, users may safely discharge them at 100A for the 20s and charge them at 1C without causing any damage. An advanced BMS is also built-in, which controls temperature and guards against short circuits, cell imbalance and voltage thresholds.
