We are delighted to bring to market this new Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery - the most stable Lithium chemistry available. We have taken time to develop, research & test this battery to ensure it delivers safe, reliable and cost effective power. Virtually indestructible the LiFOS battery provides no less than 2750 Charge & Discharge cycles, it comes with a 5 year Warranty, and with its in-built Bluetooth technology allows the battery charge status to be monitored via the downloadable LiFOS Phone App.
LiFOS has uniquely designed hardware/software integrated into each battery which allows it to;
- Operate heavy loads up to 1000w (eg Caravan motor movers);
- Protect the battery from deep discharging;
- Be charged by any mains charger (not just a specific lithium charger)
- Speed up charging times, whether being charged by mains or solar;
- Provide users with the unique ability to view the state of charge of the battery via the bluetooth connecter smartphone app
The BMS has also been specifically designed to allow LiFOS to perform when using a DC to AC charger, compatible with various leading manufacturers.
DEPTH OF DISCHARGE (DOD)
All batteries have a DOD. It’s typical to expect a battery using lead acid and gel compounds to give a 50% DOD. This means if, for example, such a battery is rated at 100Ah, it will only provide usable power of 50Ah. LiFOS has a 90% DOD, providing 61.2Ah of usable power, which means that to replicate the available power provided by LiFOS, a +120Ah lead acid or gel battery would be needed.
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 LiFOS cannot be joined in series to create higher voltages).
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.
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 above
