Lithium 100AH LiFe PO4 Caravan and Camping 12V Solar Battery

Product Description

SOLD OUT UNTIL LAST WEEK OF MAY

Are you looking to change over your old lead acid, deep cycle batteries? Have you noticed that they just don't hold charge as well as they used to? Before you pull them out and replace them with the same old technology, consider lithium batteries instead.

Just about every device these days feature a rechargeable lithium battery.  Notice the usage time of the device before it goes flat and yet recharges in a matter of hours to full capacity?  That's the benefit of lithium - full power all the way during discharge and quick recovery time to full charge again.  Furthermore, lithium LiFePO4 batteries provide more than 4 times more cycle times (discharge and recharge) compared to traditional lead acid batteries so life time is increased.

Your lead acid battery, including Gel and AGM should only be discharged to around 60% of its capacity.  This is due to the fact that as the battery capacity decreases, so too does the voltage and bringing the voltage too low will damage the individual cells to the point where they cannot recover.  So, in the case of a 100AH deep cycle battery, full power is available but only for 40% of the rated time.  With LiFePo4 batteries, full power is available for 80% of the rated time.  So, as a general rule, 1 x lithium battery can do the job of 2 x AGM batteries. 

How about weight?   Well, this is the real winner.  Half the weight of a lead acid battery so typically about 27KG for a 100AH lead acid and only 13KG for lithium.  Less weight, better fuel economy.

So how much battery storage should you have?  Well, this depends on your power requirements.  For most scenarios, a single 100AH lithium battery should suffice for long weekend trips.  For those of you who spend a fair amount of time on the road and free camping, we would suggest a single 200AH lithium battery or 2 x single 100AH lithium batteries.  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. 

How much solar do you require on your roof to recharge the batteries?

Industry experts tend to suggest  1/10th of the battery power on the low side of charging up to 1/4 of the battery power on the high side (although this guideline applies more to lead acid and not to lithium which prefers a higher recharge current).  So, if you have a single 100AH lithium battery, based on the 1/10th rule, low level recharge would be 1/10th of 100A = 10A x 14V charge voltage = 140 watts.  On the high side (preferred for lithium) 1/4 of 100A = 25A x 14V charge voltage = 350 watts.  For a 200AH lithium battery, double the above.

SatPlus Solar lithium batteries are the future of battery storage. Lithium batteries are much lighter than traditional lead acid batteries and deliver unrivaled cycle life, more than 4 times more cycles compared to lead acid batteries.

Perfect for use in caravans, marine, camping and home storage applications. The batteries are fully sealed and a built in battery management system for safety protection.

If you are replacing an existing deep cycle lead acid battery you can continue to use your same battery charging system as the built in battery management system will do the rest for you. You will also notice that lithium batteries charge more efficiently than lead acid batteries so the recovery time will be much quicker.

  • HI, Are these batteries suitable for under bonnet use, what are the temp ratings. Thanks

    Hi there, We do not recommend installation under a bonnet due to potential heat build up particularly during idle in hot summer conditions. Cheers John

  • Would a Projecta 50amp IC5000L Charger be suitable for our 2 x Lithium 100ah batteries we have recently ordered from you for our caravan? I'm worried that it may be too big, but was told we would get the best performance from the batteries with the Projecta 50amp.

    Hi Julie, The Projecta IC5000L would be perfect for your application. Very nice units. I think we need to stock these as we have been looking for a suitable lithium charger and that one has adjustable output for various battery sizes. Good choice I think Julie. Regards John

  • Hi, currently my van charges 200ah of deep cycle batteries when the engine is running through the alternator and through an installed battery isolator (Redcarc SBI 12) and also through 330watts of installed solar via a Victron 30amp charge controller. My question is : if I change over to this 100Ah lithium battery will it be ok to continue to charge through the vans alternator and SBI12 battery isolator as well as the solar or would the alternator be providing too many amps (I think it is a 90amp alternator) for the battery? In the lithium battery specs it says the nominal charging is 30amps and maximum of 80amps.

    HI Ben, Sorry for the late reply. No problem with the solar supply, with lithium, you can't have too much solar. I am concerned though with the amperage generated by your alternator and looking on CTEK website, it appears to permit up to 100Amps through that isolator. I am still learning as much info as I can on charging systems but from my research, you may require a DC-DC charger to bring that high current down to around 30A. Regards John

  • Can I charge a 100AH lithium battery for my caravan using the portable solar panel I use to charge its deep cycle batteries.

    Hi there,

    Yes you can,  however charging a high capacity lithium battery via a portable solar panel will take a long time.  You really want to have preferably 200 watts minimum to recharge at an acceptable rate.

    Cheers

  • Hi, if the min charge current is 10 amp, can you charge the battery and is it ok with just 1 x 150 W solar panel when camping if the panel is putting out less then 10 amps ? cheers Glenn

    Hi Glenn,

    We suggest at least 200 watts of solar so that the lithium battery can charge back up fairly quickly.  It will charge from a 120 watt panel but best if you don't consume power from the battery while charging as you're only going to get around 6 amps per hour back into the battery from that panel in good sunlight conditions so it will take a fair amount of time to reach full capacity.

    Cheers

  • will a single 100amphr battery be equivelant to 2 x100 AGM batteries in capacity and efficiency? Is the 3 year warranty a full warranty or pro rata after a certain time?

    Hi Phil,

    Based on power availability, yes it will replace 2 x AGM's.  It is a return to base 3 year warranty and if faulty will be repaired or replaced.  Cycles will be affected over time as per manufacturers specifications. 

    Cheers

  • Can I replace my caravans agm deep cycle batteries with lithium batteries without changing the charging setup?

    Hi there,   Yes, in most cases there is no need to change over the regulator as the battery incorporates a built in battery managements system that will control overcharge, input voltage, individual cell voltage, temperature etc. So, yes, swap and go.   Cheers  John
