Bluetti vs. Goal Zero: emergency batteries

Over the years, portable solar batteries have become quite popular. As a result, many options now saturate the market. Thankfully, Go Solar Group has your back. With our emergency backup product comparison, you can determine which product will best meet your needs.

Lithium-ion Batteries: LiFePO4 Vs. NMC

While lithium-ion batteries have become the preferred battery for solar backup, the type of lithium battery makes a difference. Goal Zero Yeti’s use a lithium nickel-manganese-cobalt-oxide (NMC) battery, while the Bluetti AC 200P uses a lithium iron phosphate(LiFePO4 or LFP) battery.

Characteristics of an LFP Battery

An LFP battery can handle full charge for long periods. However, it has a lower nominal voltage, which also lowers the specific energy below NMC batteries. These batteries also have a higher self-discharge, which requires control electronics to help mitigate.

What Sets the NMC Lithium Battery Apart From Other Lithium Batteries

The combination of nickel with manganese increases the life of the battery and its specific energy. The NMC lithium battery is the preferred lithium-ion battery used in electric cars.

Comparing Battery Specifications

General battery specs help determine what to expect. However, specifications for each company’s battery often vary from the average performance of that battery type.
