The latest LiFePO4 batteries are certified for 10 years or 5,000 cycles, and some manufacturers offer a 5-year warranty.
LTO batteries are more durable, with up to 30,000 cycles (80% capacity retention) and a lifespan of up to 25 years.
Additionally, they both include a BMS (Battery Management System) that regulates charge/discharge steps and balances and protects the battery cells by monitoring temperature and voltage.
The BMS can cut off each battery cell when it detects a value above a fixed limit.
Although BMS provides durability and protection, there are several factors that can damage your lithium battery:
External environmental factors:
💥 Heat: Temperatures above 140°F
💥Cold: For LiFePO4 batteries below -4°F
💥Physical Damage (Shock)
💥12V battery is overcharged above 16.5V
💥12V battery under 10V over discharge
💥 Manufacturing defects
💥 Inferior components
