Lithium Manganese Iron Phosphate

Abbreviated as LMFP, Lithium Manganese Iron Phosphate brings a lot of the advantages of LFP and improves on the energy density.

  • LiMnxFe1−xPO4
  • 15 to 20% higher energy density than LFP
  • Maximum theoretical cell level energy density ~230Wh/kg
  • manganese is not a rare metal, global manganese ore resources are very rich

downsides

  • low electronic conductivity
  • LMFP sees a 5 to 10% cost increase over LFP
  • low rate performance
