Iron Edison USA Series Nickel Iron (NiFe) Battery

Thomas Edison’s battery is being made in the USA for the first time in over 40 years.  Proudly manufactured in a brand new factory located just outside Gainesville, FL.

Each group of 10 cells makes a 12Volt 100Ah battery.  Multiple batteries can be wired in series and parallel for higher voltage and more ampere hour capacity.

This battery is rated for 10,000+ cycles at 80% Depth of discharge.

Optional integrated watering system – makes maintenance fast and easy

Fused Iron plates by ENCELL Technology, USA.  Fused Iron is a patented process that creates a stronger and more efficient iron electrode.

Ability to survive frequent cycling is due to the low solubility of the reactants in the electrolyte.   Unlike lead acid batteries, the plates of the NiFe battery do not dissolve into the alkaline electrolyte.  There is no suphation because the plates don't change state.  

The electrolyte used in the NiFe battery also includes lithium hydroxide, which can improve the battery's performance (e.g. cycling life, energy efficiency, wide operational temperature range, etc),  Standard concentrations of electrolyte allow the NiFe battery to be operated within a temperature range of -4F up to 140F, or -20C up to 60C.  Consult Iron Edison for projects in extreme environments.  

The chemical reactions in charging the Edison Storage Battery are, (1) the oxidation from a lower to a higher oxide of nickel in the positive plate, and (2) the reduction from ferrous oxide to metallic iron in the negative plate.  The oxidation and reduction are performed by the oxygen and hydrogen set free at the respective poles by the electrolytic decomposition of water during the charge.  The charging of the positive plate is, therefore, simply a process of increasing the proportion of oxygen to nickel. 

Lead acid batteries are susceptible to damage at temperatures above 80F and below 32F.  The supporting structure of a lead acid battery will melt at high temperatures.  

Nickel Iron batteries have a steel construction.  The nickel and iron plates never dissolve into the electrolyte - they always remain in their solid metal form.     Low temperatures may slow down performance, but when the battery warms back up, there will never be loss of capacity.
