There has been a lot of discussion in the last few months about lithium manganese iron phosphate (LMFP) batteries. Specifically, the news is that they have a 15 to 20% higher energy density than traditional LFP batteries. I had accepted this without understanding why. Well, thanks to The Electric Viking, I now know why the energy density is improved. It is because the cell voltage is increased.
The really good news is that production is virtually the same for the two battery types. That is, the same equipment and processing cycle can be used.
