Lithium batteries with onboard BMS
Our SolarKing 100AH batteries now feature an onboard battery management system or BMS built into the casing. This means that a lithium specific charger or regulator is no longer required when installing one of these lithium batteries in place of an older, deep cycle battery such as AGM.
If you have a solar setup comprising of solar panels on the roof, a solar regulator in between and deep cycle lead acid or AGM batteries in the van and you wish to change to lithium, it is, in most cases, now a simple battery swapover.
A lithium battery can supply full power to 20% capacity unlike deep cycle at only 50 ~ 60 % capacity. Furthermore, the recovery time to full charge is quicker than a deep cycle. As a general rule, one lithium battery can replace two deep cycle batteries and at less than half the weight, there are fuel savings to consider too.
