Lithium iron phosphate technology
While lead-acid batteries in the course of the years have become smaller and more powerful, their principle to generate electricity has not changed. With SHIDO lithium-ion batteries this principle has changed completely. Power is generated via LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) cells based on lithium and carbon, so they do not contain lead or acid.
Shido Lithium batteries have 4 cells LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) of 3.2 volts connected in series in order to reach an OCV of 12.8 volts. A perfect voltage to use as a starter battery for motorcycles.
The electronic Battery Management System or BMS spread the charge and discharge regularly over the four cells. Thanks to its small internal resistance a Shido Lithium battery can generate a very high starting current with little Ah. This starting power delivers a powerful and quick start of the vehicle.
