The BYD battery LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) is different from other types of Lithium battery powered products that have experienced safety issues, usually fire or over-heating. The BYD Iron Phosphate battery differs chemically from the typical Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LiCoO2) used in portable devices and cameras and has been thoroughly tested by BYD for safety.
BYD has subjected its Fe battery to multiple safety tests, from burning, to overheating, dropping, perforation, and crushing. The BYD lithium phosphate battery (Fe) has proven extremely safe, never losing structural integrity nor exploding.
The BYD Lithium Iron Phosphate battery brings a revolution to the forklift industry, with the ultimate goal of providing a cheaper, cleaner and safer solution to the material handling industry.
Revolutionary cost-saving battery:
No more battery maintenance cost, no more spare battery cost, no more changing battery cost – a one-time investment that benefits your business from day one.
Revolutionary safe battery:
No more acid handling, no more flammable gases, no more manipulation of battery, no more battery maintenance – a choice to make your business environment and community a better place to work and live in.
Revolutionary long-life battery:
No more battery changing, no more purchases of new batteries – a wise investment that minimizes your operating costs once and for all.
Extremely long life cycle:
The remaining capacity will be more than 70% after 15 years’ operation.
BYD the Fe battery does not emit flammable gases (hydrogen nor oxygen) as the other battery technologies do. As a result, explosions caused by gases are a physical impossibility.
The BYD Fe battery does not contain corrosive acid nor polluting heavy metals, as other technologies do, thus becoming the most environmentally friendly battery available.
Works well in extremely low temperatures:
Whether you work in cold climates or in refrigerated environments, the Fe battery will deliver more energy. As an example, at -40C, more than 60% of the energy stored is usable, which is not the case with the other technologies
