Why are LiFePO4 batteries a better alternative to lead-acid batteries?

Lead-acid batteries are a common battery. Due to the early development of the industrial chain, large production capacity, and high market share, they are widely used in UPS, solar energy storage, low-speed electric vehicles and other fields. However, lead-acid batteries themselves also have some unavoidable shortcomings, such as low energy density, average charge and discharge performance, and short cycle life.

With the continuous development of lithium battery technology, relying on the advantages of LiFePO4 batteries, replacing lead-acid batteries has become an irreversible trend.

Advantages of LiFePO4 batteries

With the continuous development of lithium battery technology, the scale of the industry continues to expand, and the upstream raw material mining technology becomes increasingly mature, causing the overall cost of lithium batteries to continue to decline.

Compared with lead-acid batteries, LiFePO4 batteries have higher energy density and longer cycle life. The high energy density of LiFePO4 batteries also makes the volume and weight of LiFePO4 batteries much smaller than the same type of lead-acid batteries. LiFePO4 batteries are far better than lead-acid batteries in terms of charging efficiency and discharge power experience.

In addition to cost optimization and performance improvement, LiFePO4 batteries also have almost no harmful waste emissions issues because most of the materials used in LiFePO4 batteries are non-toxic and harmless metal materials. Therefore, LiFePO4 batteries will become the mainstream of batteries.

Appearance design


MK battery adopts a new appearance design, redefining the aesthetics of battery design, perfectly integrating functionality and elegance. The smooth profile and streamlined profile not only contribute to the battery’s modern aesthetic, but also improve handling and installation, allowing us to integrate the battery into a variety of applications.

In addition to its more fashionable and beautiful appearance, MK’s LiFePO4 battery products are also ahead of other similar products in terms of structural stability and product quality, effectively avoiding homogeneous competition.

Better charge and discharge performance

MK’s LiFePO4 battery has strong multiplication performance, the maximum continuous discharge current can reach 1C (100A), and the maximum continuous output power can reach 1280W; it also performs well in fast charging of the battery, the maximum charging current supports 1C, and theoretically 80% SOC only takes 1 hour, which is comparable to the charging efficiency of many EVs. In the case of 80% DOD, the cycle life can reach 6,000 times, and in the case of 50% DOD, the cycle life can reach 9,000 times.

Remote management background

Smart IoT is another major advantage of MK. With the option to incorporate Bluetooth functionality, users can effortlessly connect to their battery via a dedicated mobile app, unlocking a wealth of real-time insights and control over their energy storage system.

Through the mobile app, users gain access to comprehensive data regarding crucial parameters such as voltage, current, cycle number, and more. This level of transparency enables users to monitor the health and efficiency of their battery system with unparalleled precision, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

Furthermore, the Smart IoT capabilities extend beyond mere monitoring, offering users the ability to remotely manage and optimize their battery’s operation. Whether adjusting charging parameters, scheduling maintenance tasks, or receiving alerts for potential issues, customers have full control over their energy storage solution from the palm of their hand.
