Calculate the size of battery packs that are made by single cells

All kinds of battery packs are assembled from single cells, we can adjust the size of battery pack according to the space requrement from customer.

For example, to make a 48V20Ah LiFePO4 battery pack, we use 3.2V 10Ah LiFePO4 cells for assembling, the pack structure will be 16S2P. 2P means every 2 of 3.2V10Ah cells will be made to a 3.2V20Ah cell module, 16S2P means here will be 16 sets of those 3.2V20Ah cell modules put in series configuration. We always use 3V for calculation, but the real pack volt is 16*3.2=51.2V.

How to extend the battery cycle life?

Signal cell (battery) is an independent unit which contains a complete chemical reaction environment inside. For nominal usage we need to make sure that cells / batteries are under specified conditions that data-sheet described. For lithium batteries, we suggest to take consideration of working temperature, and do not fully charged to 100% SOC and do not fully discharged to 100% DOD when using, by this way the cycle times of LiFePO4 could be effectively extended.

What is LiFePO4 battery?

LiFePO4 battery, or LFP battery, the full name is the lithium iron phosphate battery, which belongs to one kind of rechargeable lithium batteries, battery takes LiFePO4 as cathode materials.

For original LiFePO4 have low electric conductivity, many battery manufacturers make efforts on improving original LiFePO4 materials, like nano-technology, metal-doping, carbon-coating etc. Bestgo-Power takes metal-doping and carbon-coating to update original LiFePO4 materials for battery manufacturing.
