Absolutely not! We stand out as a secure lithium product for three compelling reasons.
Firstly, MEGALiFe employs lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry in its batteries, recognized as the safest among lithium-based options. It's crucial to note that this is distinct from the lithium polymer (LiPO) batteries commonly found in cell phones or RC cars, with a significantly higher thermal runaway threshold of approximately 275ºC.
Secondly, the robust safety features extend to the construction of the casing and internal packaging. MEGALiFe adopts a proprietary case with an impressive IP67 rating and a drop test resilience of up to 10m. Achieved through a combination of a rigid ABS case and an expanding foam product, this design ensures comprehensive support for LiFePO4 cells, wiring, and internal electronics. The entire battery is securely bonded for an airtight seal.
Thirdly, the internal Battery Management System (BMS) plays a pivotal role in mitigating potential issues related to cells, including over-voltage, under-voltage, short circuits, and high temperatures. Our cutting-edge MOSFET-controlled board not only prioritizes safety but also provides comprehensive monitoring and measurements to guarantee optimal battery life.
An apt analogy is that while pouring petrol on a fire can be dangerous, placing it inside a properly designed fuel tank in your car ensures safety. Similarly, lithium batteries, when subject to abuse and misuse, may pose risks. However, rest assured that we've taken extensive measures to minimise any potential hazards, making such concerns highly unlikely.
