Liacon cranks out new 12V LFP battery

Liacon’s LFP battery is designed to be a drop-in replacement, meaning there’s no need to change existing charging systems.

Liacon, a European battery manufacturer, has released a new, lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery that can replace all Group 31 lead acid units. The new Group 31 LFP 12.8V 150 Ah battery has two to three times the energy of a lead-acid battery, and 1,000 cranking amps for starting heavy-duty diesel engines, the company says.

“Lead acid batteries typically get 200 to 400 cycles before they fail. In comparison our lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries have ten times the life, cycling over 4,000 times,”  said Philip M. Meek, chief executive officer at Liacon.

Liacon says its battery does not contain expensive and rare heavy metals, like cobalt and nickel, nor does it contain lead. Liacon’s LFP battery is designed to be a drop-in replacement.
