Today I received new laptops in my department, with i7processors and 8GB of RAM, comparing with old computers some years ago, this is a truly development in the technology. But what got my attention was the ultra slim battery of the laptop, it is incredible what technology does; I think each more will see more slim and efficient batteries for laptops.
I’m a big fan of green energies such as solar and wind energies, and what I’m seeing during these last years and that is surprising me, are the hybrid and electric cars, I love the electric cars, they are a green vehicles, but what can move the electric cars are the batteries, these equipment are very important for performance in the cars; but for the consumers comes a questions, which is the best rechargeable battery for electric cars? Well, there is now new lithium iron phosphate batteries or also known LiFePO4 (LEP), this battery is made of cathode material and is used to store energy in lithium ion rechargeable batteries. The cathode material is very important piece in the battery, it can define the performance and a longer cycle life that other lithium-ion batteries.
Where can be used lithium iron phosphate batteries?
I think this kind of battery will be used in the automotive production (and in other systems), it’s safety and with its great quality and competitive price, for sure will be chosen for green energy platforms.
