The power of Lithium batteries as a second battery for your overlanding or camping setup

Want to get more out of your battery? Want less weight, space and longer durability?

The answer is Lithium.

Super energy density with much more usable energy in less space. Lithium in comparison to regular AGM Batteries are lighter, more efficient and have a longer life cycle. Lithium batteries are also more environmentally friendly with their improved energy efficiency. The demanding loads are safely managed with consistent stable voltage and fast and efficient charging performance. Here you can have a detailed read about Lithium vs. AGM:

We only offer high quality Lithium batteries that are constructed using the latest generation prismatic lithium iron phosphate cells and have an inbuilt Battery Management System (BMS).

 

Amptron LifePO4

 

AMPTRON® lithium batteries have a built-in Battery Protection System (BPS) designed to prevent damage to the cells from almost any external accidental occurrence that would normally cause damage. The internal Battery Protection System (BPS) will automatically disconnect to prevent damage to the cells if any cell drains below 2.5 volts. It will automatically reconnect when the charger is turned on. This protects the battery from over-discharging and damaging the cells. This technology also protects the battery from overcharge, short circuit and reverse polarity.

Why consider changing to Lithium Technology

  • Super energy density, more usable energy in less space
  • Lighter, more compact and portable
  • Longer life- cycle and cost efficient
  • Environmentally friendly and more energy efficient
  • Built to service higher loads
  • Delivers stable voltage
  • Faster to charge

Deep cycle Lead Acid ( Flooded, AGM, Gel)  vs Lithium 

 

Cycle Life : The accepted lkifespan of a lithium battery is 4 to 10 times the lifespan of Lead acid batteries

Depth of Discharge (DoD) – A lithium battery will typically provide twice the usable energy than a deep cycle lead acid battery of the same rated capacity

Weight – A lithium battery provides 4 times the usable energy than a lead acid battery of the same weight

Voltage Drop - Constant heavy loads do not significantly impact the voltage of lithium batteries, whereas the voltage of lead acid batteries significantly drops.

Peukerts effect (The impact of current on the usable amp-hours) – under heavy loads, the usable capacity of a lead acid battery is diminished, whereas the effect on lithium batteries is negligible

Discharge Curve – For most of its discharge, even under heavy loads, the voltage of lithium batteries remains close to maximum, whereas the voltage of lead acid batteries significantly and quickly drops

Charge time and charge rate - lithium batteries charge much faster than lead acid batteries

Frequently Asked Questions

Are lithium batteries safe?

Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are the safest type of Lithium batteries as they will not overheat, and even if punctured they will not catch on fire. The cathode material in LiFePO4 batteries is not hazardous, and so poses no negative health hazards or environmental hazards. Due to the oxygen being bonded tightly to the molecule, there is no danger of the battery erupting into flames like there is with Lithium-Ion. The chemistry is so stable that LiFePO4 batteries will accept a charge from a Lead Acid configured charger.

when should I charge my lithium battery?

Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries can be left or cycled in a partially discharged state for long periods with few or no adverse effects, such as sulphation. AMPTRON® lithium batteries have a builtin Battery Protection System (BPS), that will automatically disconnect when the low voltage cut-off is reached, protecting the batteries from excessive discharge. These batteries also do not have a charge memory. All of this means that the batteries can be charged at any point. However, to maximize the battery life, it is recommended to recharge the batteries when they reach 20% State of Charge or higher.
