The large capacity LFP cells should be recycledin the same way as all other lithium or li-ion cells.
There is no change or difference because of the size of the cells. As with any other cells, you should recycle only cells that were fully discharged and have 0V potential on the terminals.
Follow these steps:
1) Discharge the cell completely to0V.
2) Short-circuit the terminals of the cell - connect the PLUS and MINUS poles of the cell with a conductive wire
3) Dispose of the cells at your recycling center or facility.
4) In some rare cases the recycling company may request some technical datasheets to verify the chemical composition of a cell. In this case please contact GWL and we will be happy to assist you.
Let us make the best use of the LFP technology and if need to be disposed of, let us make the better world by recycling in the most responsible way.
The world of the LTO technology
The 2.4V high performance cells for your packs and battery applications.
The LTO customized pack solutions - life is easy!
The innovative LTO cells allow a simple and easy assembly into the packs. As a result any company or individual with basic skills in electronics is now able to produce the battery packs with excellent performance. There is no need to use the welding machines to fix the contact terminals to the cells.
The LTO cells have the outstanding energy performance and mechanical safety.
The LTO cells bring the energy solutions into a new level.

FAQ related to LTO technology and solar charging
Q: Can I use the LTO pack without BMS?
No! We always recommend some kind of monitoring. And we strongly suggest to have several methods of protection of the operation of the battery pack.
See more details:
Q: I have a 12V equipment, should I use 5 or 6 cells?
It depends on the voltage levels you with to reach and on the voltage level supported by your equipment.
For 5 cells LTO pack, the voltage levels are:
Charge voltage 13.25V - 2.65V/cell
Discharge voltage 9V - 1.80V/cell
For 6 cells LTO pack, the voltage levels are:
Charge voltage 15.9V - 2.65V/cell
Discharge voltage 10.8V - 1.80V/cell
