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.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"font_8\"\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWHAT IS A BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

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 Solarking 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 charge rates do not exceed 14.8V (absolute max 15.0V) bulk\/absorb charge and float turned off or set to 13.3V ~ 13.6V.  In general, if your charger is set to AGM then this will be fine as AGM charges at around 14.4V 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.

Solarking 120AH Lithium 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 SOLARKING RANGE OF BATTERIES FEATURE ACTIVE CELL BALANCING.  See this article - https://www.analog.com/en/technical-articles/active-battery-cell-balancing.html#

Solarking 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.  And just like the rest of the Solarking 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 Solarking 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 Solarking 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 charge rates do not exceed 14.8V (absolute max 15.0V) bulk/absorb charge and float turned off or set to 13.3V ~ 13.6V.  In general, if your charger is set to AGM then this will be fine as AGM charges at around 14.4V 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.   

3 YEAR WARRANTY 

The Solarking range of lithium LiFePo4 batteries are covered by an Australian 3 year warranty against defects and failure.  This is a return to base warranty and if found to be faulty, will be repaired or replaced during this period.

Excellent Service

My purchase of a 120ah lithium battery and a Epever regular from Satplus would rate as one of the easiest online purchases I have ever made.
Fast delivery from Brisbane to Tully just 4 day's. Well packed, great service.
Once installed I will report how well it performs.

Thanks very much Gerry, really appreciate your feedback. Let me know how you go once everything is up and running. Cheers, John.
