LIFOS ADVANCED LIGHTWEIGHT LITHIUM BATTERY

LIFOS ADVANCED LIGHTWEIGHT LITHIUM BATTERY

The LiFOS Lithium Battery is an advanced battery using the new premium in lithium battery chemistries - Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4)...

LiFOS delivers reliable and safe power in virtually all conditions. Perfect for voltage sensitive and high cycling applications including leisure, commercial and off grid renewable energy installations.

Long Life

LiFOS has a 5-year warranty and its integral Battery Management System (BMS) guarantees its Depth of Discharge (DOD) does not exceed 90%, thus ensuring that LiFOS gives no less than 2750 charge and discharge cycles – see graph on back page of the downloadable brochure below. Further, if LiFOS is only partially discharged to 50% of its capacity, for example, the number of times it can be charged and discharged jumps to 5000 (+13yrs).

Battery Management and Communication System

LiFOS has uniquely designed hardware/software integrated into each battery which allows it to:

  • Operate heavy loads up to 1000w (e.g. caravan motor movers);
  • Protect the battery from deep discharging;
  • Be charged by most mains lead acid battery charger <40Ah, vehicle alternator or solar panel;
  • The BMS has also been specially designed for use with DC to DC chargers;
  • Speed up charging times, whether being powered by mains or solar;
  • Provide users with a unique view of the charge and discharge performance of their battery on a smartphone via a simple-to-understand Android or Apple App. This free to download App provides extremely accurate information – generally far more so than a typical analogue battery meter. The App, once connected to a smart device, will also sends users a reminder to put their LiFOS on charge once it has been discharged to 30%, thus further prolonging its life.

CONNECTIONS

LiFOS is fitted with removable terminal posts, compatible with caravan quick release connectors, so that it can fit in the smallest space possible. The posts can be removed and ring terminals connected directly onto the terminal plates. In addition, two LiFOS batteries can be joined in parallel to create double the (AH) capacity. (Please Note that currently, the LiFOS68 cannot be used in a Series Connection to create higher voltages, but product in the near future will be able to be used in both Parallel or Series layouts)

Weight

LiFOS is a featherweight 7.8kgs. When compared to a good quality 120Ah lead acid battery at circa 34kgs, LiFOS gives an impressive 77% weight saving – and in motor campers, caravans and boats, saving 27+ kilograms can be crucial.

Safety

LiFOS does not emit noxious gases therefore does not need to be housed in a specially vented chamber. LiFOS has a huge operating temperature range of -20 to +60 °C and it can be used in any orientation (e.g. on its side), although on its base will give the best performance. Like all batteries it should not be allowed to discharge fully over a long period and if it will be left without any power input for a 6-month period the LiFOS must be charged. A warning will be sent via the App as a reminder – see previous page, ‘Battery Management and Communication System’.

In many commercial applications, a battery is used in combination with a solar panel to provide power to equipment such as car park ticket machines, electric fences, data loggers and street lighting, to name but a few. In such devices the cost of the battery itself is small compared with the cost of sending a technician once a year to change the battery. LiFOS will reduce this service visit to once every 7.5yrs, meaning that labour and material savings due to LiFOS soon become very significant. Not only that but waste, vehicle congestion and carbon emissions are reduced.

BBL Batteries in Truro was recommended to me by my local garage. I spoke to a gentleman called Mike who advised me on the best battery for my Ford Fiesta. Mikes extensive knowledge and experience was evident on talking to him and the battery price very reasonable.  The fitting service was extremely quick with no fuss. Exemplary customer service from all at the Truro store, I highly recommend this company. Many thanks.

I bought a Yuasa battery for my VW Eos after receiving advice over the telephone from a very helpful gentleman.  What made me choose BBL was the excellent customer service which was evident from the start.  The battery was fitted with no fuss and I was confident the job was done well.  Thank you to all concerned.

Was trying to order a product online but was doing something wrong my end. I telephoned the number from the website and spoke to Wayne , Wayne was more than helpful and made the whole ordering process hassle free and swift , which is rare these days!

Thanks very much for an easy process and keep up the good work

Noticed this depot/branch by chance while going to get a secondhand battery from a breaker. Man who served us had a scientific air about him and sold us a Yuasa battery for 48pounds. This would have cost 97pounds at Halfords or 120?pounds at Kwikfit.
Thankyou, very pleased not to have had to take a gamble off the internet and will tell people about you.

We purchased a battery for our car on Saturday morning from your Exeter Branch.
We thought the person that served us was extremely
professional and very pleasant. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.
Thank you for a very nice experience
