*What is LTO battery?
Lithium titanate battery is a kind of lithium ion secondary battery with anode material of lithium titanate and the cathode materials of lithium manganate, ternary material or lithium iron phosphate as 2.4V or 1.9V. In addition, lithium titanate can also be used as cathode to form 1.5V lithium secondary battery with metal lithium or lithium alloy anode.
*What are the advantages of LTO batteries?
- Good safety and stability
The potential of lithium titanate is higher than that of pure lithium metal. It is not easy to produce lithium dendrites, and the discharge voltage is stable. Moreover, the safety performance of lithium battery is improved. The test of lithium titanate battery shows that under strict tests such as acupuncture, extrusion and short circuit, it does not smoke, fire or explode, and its safety is much higher than that of other lithium batteries.
- High rate charging and discharging, excellent fast charging performance
Compared with carbon anode materials, lithium titanate battery has higher lithium ion diffusion coefficient and can be charged and discharged at a high rate. Take YINLONG 2.3V 40Ah battery for example, the max continuous discharging current is 400A. While greatly shortening the charging time, it has little impact on the cycle life and has strong thermal stability.
- Long cycle life
The lithium titanate battery can be fully charged and discharged for more than 25000 cycles. After 10 years of use as a power battery, it may be used as an energy storage battery for another 20 years. Users do not need to replace the battery in actual use, which almost does not increase the cost in the later period.
- Good wide temperature resistance
Generally, the charging and discharging of electric vehicles will have problems when the temperature is below - 10 ℃. The lithium titanate battery has good wide temperature resistance and strong durability. It can be charged and discharged normally from - 50 ℃ to 60 ℃.
