Base Station Batteries

Lithium Iron Batteries for Telecommunications Base Stations

REVOV’s lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are ideal telecom base station batteries.

These batteries offer reliable, cost-effective backup power for communication networks.

They are significantly more efficient and last longer than lead-acid batteries.

At the same time, they’re lighter and more compact, and have a modular design – an advantage for communication stations that need to install equipment in limited space.

REVOV’s LiFePO4 batteries for base stations

REVOV supplies automotive-grade lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries – the highest available grade of lithium battery, originally designed for use in electric vehicles.

We offer both LiFe and 2ndLiFe lithium iron batteries for base stations.

Our 2ndLiFe batteries are repurposed after use in electric vehicles. They offer 10 to 15 years of superior performance, at much lower cost than other lithium iron batteries. They have the 16 cell automative grade configuration, which is far superior and longer lasting than the storage grade 15 cell batteries.

Our 1st LiFe batteries are also made up in the superior 16 cell autograde configuration, giving a far superior performance over any other new LiFePo4 battery.

Find the right lithium iron battery for you.

Why consider lithium iron phosphate batteries for base stations?

A telecommunication base station (TBS) depends on a reliable, stable power supply.

For this reason, base stations are best served by lithium batteries that use newer technology – in particular, lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries.

Both our LiFe and 2ndLiFe batteries use LiFePO4 chemistry.

Advantages of LiFePO4 batteries for base stations:

Better energy efficiency

A LiFePO4 battery offers energy efficiency of about 95%. This is compared to 80 to 85% for a lead-acid battery. LiFePO4 batteries charge faster and have higher capacity. They also offer good performance at high temperature.

Greater depth of discharge (DOD)

LiFePO4 batteries have a DOD of 90% or higher. This is compared to about 50% for a lead-acid battery. In practice, this means that a LiFePO4 battery supplies power for longer intervals between charging.

Longer lifespan

A lead-acid battery lasts for about 200 to 1,000 charge and discharge cycles. Used with the same parameters, a LiFePO4 battery lasts for 1,000 to 3,000 cycles.

Lighter and easier to install

Originally designed for use in electric vehicles, REVOV’s LiFePO4 batteries are compact, lightweight and suitable for wall mounting.

Safer and lower maintenance

LiFePO4 batteries don’t contain toxic acid (unlike lead-acid batteries) and don’t require maintenance or refills.

Together, these advantages make LiFePO4 the most reliable and cost-effective energy storage system for telecoms stations.

REVOV changed our lives. Power will no longer be a problem in our household. I would recommend REVOV to all home owners, their service and products are great!
