LiFePO4 Battery Chemistry



Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) boasts an un-recharged shelf life of 10 years compared to 3 years for the lithium-ion and 6-9 months for a sealed lead-acid battery. LiFePO4 can be charged and discharged 2000 times compared to only 500 for a lithium ion battery and 300 for sealed lead-acid designs so the batteries will last as long as the telescope you use it with. LiFePO4 uses phosphates instead of environmentally hazardous elements like cobalt or lead commonly found in other rechargeable batteries, it can withstand higher temperatures than lithium-ion designs, and will not be a fire danger if a cell is accidently punctured.
