Q: What is the difference between LIFEP04 and Li(NiCoMn)O2
A: In terms of output not much, in terms of safety they are both very safe,
LIFEP04 is slightly heavier and larger, with slightly more life cycles.
Li(NiCoMn)O2 has same performance, but is cheaper, lighter and smaller in volume, great for marine applications where WEIGHT is important. We really recommend Li(NiCoMn)O2 for small vessel trolling motors!
