Lithium Battery for Caravan Solarking 100AH

Product Description

Solarking 100AH Lithium Battery for Caravan

FREE STANDARD FREIGHT AUS WIDE 

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 the ultimate solution for power storage and usage in caravan, RV and marine applications. Completely sealed with zero maintenance, the Solarking 100AH lithium batteries are much lighter than lead acid and AGM batteries and their cycle life is more than 4 times that of lead acid batteries. Up to 8000 cycles is possible if the battery is well looked after and even under heavy loads every day (drained to 25% capacity), can still achieve minimum 2000 cycles making them more economical than a lead acid battery when calculated over time.

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.  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 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.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • 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

    John

  • 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

    John

  • 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

    John

  • 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
