The LiFOS Lithium battery is an advanced battery using the new premium in lithium battery chemistries – Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) – which delivers reliable and safe power in virtually all conditions. LiFOS has a 5-year warranty and its integral Battery Management System (BMS) guarantees its depth of discharge (DOD) does not exceed 90%, thus ensuring that LiFOS gives no less than 2750 charge and discharge cycles.

Further, if LiFOS is only partially discharged to 50% of its capacity, for example, the number of times it can be charged and discharged jumps to 5000.

Perfect for the portable cleaning market, LiFOS offers a huge weight saving when compared with traditional lead acid batteries and out cycles lead acid technology many times over.
