LiFePO4 or LFP is the safest of the mainstream li-ion battery types. The nominal voltage of a LFP cell is 3,2V (lead-acid: 2V/cell). A 24V LFP battery consists of 8 cells connected in series.
CA180FI 200AH LiFePo4 CELL
This is a Pack of 8 x CA180 Cells assembled in series to make a 24 volt Battery pack.
The NEW China Aviation Lithium Battery Company CA series cells provide an advance in nanoparticle lithium iron phosphate cell technology featuring starkly improved cold weather performance, increased power output and greater cell to cell capacity consistency than ever achieved by any Chinese battery manufacturer. The increased power capability means less voltage sage for any given current output. The improved capacity consistency makes managing a series string much easier. These cells are inherently safer with much higher thermal runaway temperatures than the Lithium Manganese and Lithium Cobalt metal oxide cells used by many automakers. We think these advantages make this cell the choice worldwide for electric vehicle applications.

CARE AND FEEDING OF YOUR CA SERIES CELL
The new CA/FI series cell incorporates some nanoscale improvements in cathode and anode materials along with some significant improvements in electrolyte chemistry that representthe absolute peak of performance in LiFePo4 ionic battery technology. With a recently completed modern manufacturing facility, the China Aviation Lithium Battery Company has achieved production consistencies heretofore unachievable. The result is the new grey cell the CA/FI series. CA is an abbreviation of the China Aviation Lithium Battery Company (CALB). FIis a series abbreviation for iron phosphate (FePo) chemistry series I. This is their first series newly designed and manufactured subsequent to their acquisition of the Sky Energy Battery Company the previous SEseries. The China Aviation Missile Academy purchased this company, and subsequently invested nearly a billion dollars in new plant and manufacturing to form the China Aviation Lithium Battery Company.The new FI series offers some serious advantages over previous cells.
They produce significantly more power than previous cells with a rating of 3C continuous output and brief outputs of up to 30 seconds at rates up to 10C. A CA100FI cell can produce 1000 amps with minimal voltage sag.
The cells feature improved cold weather performance. Longer cycle life. And due to better capacity consistency, they are easierto manage in serial strings.Common wisdom regarding the care of lithium batteries requires a battery management system
T H E B A S I C R U L E I S ——-
Do NOT overcharge these cells and do NOT overdischarge them. Observing those two precepts will ensure many years of service. If you fail to observe this, even once, it will most likely result in cell destruction and loss, and it will absolutely lead to early capacity loss of your pack. But achieving this takes a bit of strategy.
