Campere Lithium 120AH LiFe PO4 Caravan and Camping Solar Battery

Product Description

Read this article to get a true understanding of the benefits and charge settings of LiFePo4 batteries

The Campere 120AH offers an extra 20% capacity over the 100AH version and only takes up slightly more space (367 x 187 x 257mm LxWxH).  Campere lithium batteries are ideally suited to the RV industry as they provide constant voltage during discharge, can be taken down to 20% capacity and recharge recovery time is much faster than a lead acid battery.  Not only that, they weigh much less than their lead acid equivalents.  A lead acid battery of this capacity weighs around 31.5KG. Our Campere 120AH lithium battery weighs only 17.6KG so a big weight saving that will cut your fuel bill down in the long term.  And just like the rest of the Campere lithium range of batteries, the 120AH features internal heavy duty management system with electronic cell monitoring.

SO HOW MUCH BATTERY STORAGE SHOULD YOU HAVE? 

Well, this depends on your power requirements.  In most cases where you are powering LED lights, a TV and recharging laptops and low power devices and your fridge is a 3 way unit able to run on gas, a single 100AH lithium battery will suffice.  With 300 watts or so of solar on your roof, you’ll be able to top up your batteries daily and even with several cloudy days when there is little solar charge coming back in, you’ll still have ample battery storage available.  If you do feel that you might only just have enough battery capacity and a buffer of 20% extra might be advantageous, then go for the 120AH.  For those of you who spend a fair amount of time away and running heavier load items such as a 2 way 12V fridge, inverter, lighting, TV etc, we would suggest a single 150AH or 200AH lithium battery or 2 x single 100AH or 120AH lithium batteries connected in parallel.  This is a huge amount of storage that will get you through those cloudy days until the sun comes back out and recharges your batteries via your solar panels.  

WHAT IS A BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BMS?) 

All Campere lithium batteries feature heavy duty BMS circuitry inside the battery casing.  The BMS looks after the battery by monitoring the incoming charge voltage and the discharge voltage as well as temperature cut off in the unlikely event that the pack runs too hot.  The BMS will also protect your Campere battery by switching off the voltage output if the capacity reduces to 20% or less.  This prevents cell damage and can be reset and charged back up to an acceptable state of charge.  There is much debate about whether a standard lead acid charger can be used with drop in lithium LiFePo4 batteries with a built in BMS.  From our research, we suggest that any charger can be used providing it has a custom profile.  Within the custom profile, charge rates should be set to 14.6V bulk/absorb charge and float turned off or set to 13.3V (equalisation must be set to zero or off). The benefit however of having a lithium specific charger is that the battery will be returned to a full state of charge faster and more efficiently.   How about weight? Big weight savings to be had by changing over to lithium.  Only 17.6KG for the 120AH.
