More Efficient Charging
Our Deep Cycle LiFePO4 RV batteries are far more functional than lead acid alternatives, charging at nearly 100 percent efficiency. When you’re ready to get to your next destination, you don’t want to be stuck at a campsite all day waiting for your lead acid battery to charge.
Lithium’s efficiency is also helpful when you’re storing solar power. Perhaps you’re trying to charge your battery before the sun goes down. With a LiFePO4 RV battery, you get the maximum amount of energy from your solar panels, so you have more than enough power by the time night falls.
Fewer Maintenance Requirements
There’s no way around it: Lead acid batteries need a lot of maintenance. When you’re on the road, you have enough to worry about without having to take care of your battery. Lead acid RV batteries have the following upkeep requirements:
• Operate at mild temperatures
• Avoid deep discharges.
• Routinely apply charges lasting longer than 14 hours
• Charge frequently
• Add water when the electrolyte level falls
Fortunately, there’s a more practical solution. LiFePO4 RV batteries typically require no maintenance, and they don’t need water to operate. If you don’t have the time to check your system routinely, LiFePO4 batteries are a more convenient option.
Longer Shelf Life
Taking summer trips to campsites, monuments and national parks across the country is quite an adventure. However, you may not travel all year with your RV. Maybe your job only allows you a few weeks of vacation, and you spend the rest of your time dreaming of being on the road.
While you may wish you spent more time living in your RV, you have the comfort of knowing your LiFePO4 RV battery is safe when you’re not using it. Lead acid batteries deteriorate quickly when they’re not recharged every day. On the other hand, lithium has a much longer shelf life, allowing you to store your RV safely.
Better Safety Features
An RV is not just a way to travel; it’s your home away from home. Whether you’re living in a brick house or a home on wheels, you must take safety precautions to prevent fires and other accidents.
RELiON lithium RV batteries are equipped with built-in safety measures to protect you and your family during your RV adventures. When your battery comes too close to overheating, a temperature control mechanism automatically shuts it down.
Most lead acid batteries don’t include this fail-safe feature, putting your RV in danger of catching fire. Coming into contact with foreign metals may also cause a lead acid battery to ignite. Choosing LiFePO4 batteries is the much safer decision.
Starlight Solar stocks Relion 75AH, 100AH, 200AH and 300AH batteries. No venting is required so the batteries can be safely installed in your bay or make use of formerly wasted space as in the photo.
The PV solar power system was added to keep the battery automatically charged when the sun shines.
Four 100AH batteries being installed behind a wall to make use of wasted space. The battery can be kept cooler or kept warm when in freezing weather.
RELiON's 12v Deep Cycle Batteries provide higher usable capacity and cycle life than lead acid alternatives. Our lithium-ion battery is perfect for yachts, motorhomes, solar backup power and other deep cycle applications.
