LiFOS uses the new premium in leisure battery chemistries - Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) - to deliver safe and reliable power for a wide range of uses. It is perfect for charge sensitive, high cycling applications including leisure, commercial and off-grid energy devices.

 

BATTERY MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEM

LiFOS has uniquely designed hardware/software integrated into each battery which allows it to:

  • Operate heavy loads up to 1000w (e.g. caravan motor movers)
  • Protect the battery from deep discharging
  • Be charged by most mains lead acid battery charger <40Ah, vehicle alternator or solar panel
  • Speed up charging times, whether being powered by mains or solar
  • Provide users with a unique view of the charge and discharge performanceof their battery on a smartphone via a simple-to-understand Android
    or Apple App. This free to download App provides extremely accurate information – generally far more so than a typical analogue battery meter. The App, once connected to a smart device, will also sends users a reminder to put their LiFOS on charge once it has been discharged to 30%, thus further prolonging its life.

 

The BMS has also been specially designed to allow LiFOS to perform when using a DC to DC charger. LiFOS is compatible with these manufacturers products:

*The LiFOS battery will go into dormant mode when battery voltage is < 8V and battery output is 0V. Please contact us or use a specific LiFePO4 battery wall charger to recharge it for 3-5 minutes, which will release it.

 

CONNECTIONS

LiFOS is fitted with removable terminal posts (round terminals), compatible with caravan quick release connectors, so that it can fit in the smallest space possible. The posts can be removed and ring (eyelet) terminals connected directly onto the terminal plates. In addition, up to four LiFOS batteries can be joined in parallel to create a powerbank of 272Ah or 48V.

WEIGHT

LiFOS is a featherweight 7.8kgs. When compared to a good quality 120Ah lead acid battery at circa 34kgs, LiFOS gives an impressive 77% weight saving – and in motor campers, caravans and boats, saving 27+ kilograms can be crucial.

 

SAFETY

LiFOS does not emit noxious gases therefore does not need to be housed in a specially vented chamber. LiFOS has a huge operating temperature range of -20 to +60 °C and it can be used in any orientation (e.g. on its side), although on its base will give the best performance.

Like all batteries it should not be allowed to discharge fully over a long period and if it will be left without any power input for a 6-month period the LiFOS must be charged. A warning will be sent via the App as a reminder.

Note: LiFOS can discharge in temperatures down to -20°C but cannot receive a charge at any temperature lower than 0°C. If LiFOS is housed within a housing such as a caravan battery compartment or similar, it should be protected from freezing temperatures. If, however, LiFOS is exposed to the elements it should be placed inside a battery box or similar with some level of insulation.

 

Cost

LiFOS costs £699 (inc VAT, RRP), which is of course much higher than a 120Ah lead acid or gel battery. However, the number of times it can be charged and discharged is anything up to six times more, so looking at the cost per cycle is important when considering the value of a battery purchase. The examples below in the comparison are both from the NCC verified batteries category A (Highest Catagory):
