China’s Imren Battery has unveiled its new LF105 rechargeable battery cell based on lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) chemistry.
The cell offers a nominal voltage of 3.2 V and a capacity of 105 Ah, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, including electric vehicles, energy storage systems, and other applications. For instance, the company said a kit of 16 LF105 battery cells could provide energy storage with a capacity of up to 1,600 Wh.
LF105 boasts an energy density of 138 Wh/kg, allowing for more energy storage in a smaller space. The cell is rated for up to 5,000 cycles at 80% depth of discharge.
The LF105 LiFePo4 cell features a prismatic design, which provides a compact and space-efficient solution compared to cylindrical cells. It measures 200 mm x 130 mm x 36 mm and weighs 1.98 kg.
It is equipped with a built-in protection against overcharging, over-discharging, and short circuits which ensures that it operates within safe parameters. The cell also has a wide operating temperature range of -20 C to 60 C, ensuring reliable performance in a range of environments.
The LF105 LiFePo4 prismatic battery cell is now available for purchase and can be delivered from the company's warehouses in the US and Germany.
Founded in 2013, Shenzhen IMR Technology Co., Ltd. (Imren Battery) has a varied portfolio of products that includes batteries, battery chargers, torches, headlamps, unmanned aerial vehicles, and USB chargers, among others.

Too bad the charge/discharge current and voltage are very low. 1A, 3.2V. I need 3.7V (with max charging voltage of 4.2V, and discharge current of 4 to 5A for my hybrid car.
3.7V is only ever available from Li polymer cells – at the risk of thermal runaway and spontaneous destruction due to dendrite formations in the electrolyte.
This chemistry is significantly safer, but puts out 3.2V. Discharge current is 105A continuously, 210Aor more intermittently and charge current 10.5A. Not sure why that would be an issue for you.
The maths doesn’t add up for this. 3.2v x 105Ah = 336Wh. 16 of them is 5376Wh, or 5.3kWh. I wonder which one is correct.
With a nominal voltage of 3.2V and 105Ah/ cell, that’s about 335Wh/ cell (3.2*105). So how would 16 cells only yield 1,600 Wh?
LFP batteries all discharge at 3.2 V.
LMNC batteries discharge at 3.6 or 3.7 V.
How I could get 16 PCs of lithium ferrous phosphate battery 3.2V and 320 ah. From PR.
“of 16 LF105 battery cells could provide reliable energy storage with a capacity of up to 1,600 Wh.” The math doesn’t add up ? Each cell is 336Wh…
